The bike guarantees to be highly advanced, especially when it comes to tracking workout data. The ViaFit feature works in conjunction with the display panel to connect with various fitness communities and apps via Wi-Fi. It sends the data to these apps and also shares it in the common communities. You’ll thus not have to do that manually. This ensures that you are able to manage the workouts better and put more effort in burning all the extra calories as the goals are fed and tracked automatically.

 

How it Works:

This bike proves to be quite effective at ensuring that you have a low-impact workout. Its recumbent design makes sure that the back support is proper enough to the user thus avoiding excessive strain on one’s body parts. Just by stepping on the bike, you’ll be ready to start your workout. This is made easy with the bike’s step-through frame and placing the feet on the pedals in order to get a riding motion on the go.

What We Like:

A Heavy-Duty Frame- This frame is made of material which is sturdy and durable enough. It has been designed in such a way that anyone can step on it swiftly with the use of the step-through gap.

Pedals- Its pedals come with a self-balancing feature and adjustable straps. These straps can be customized easily to secure the feet while riding. The movements are thus smooth enough to ensure no stress will fall on your feet.

Comfortable Seat- the Elite R7 Bike’s seat is of mesh seat-back type. This makes it suitably comfortable for resting and sitting on while riding. The seat is easily adjustable with the use of a simple latch found on the side. You’ll hence easily maintain a good distance and ration between the feet and body, regardless of your height and shape.

Multi-Positioning Handlebars- These will help you in achieving a good form while performing cardio.

Magnetic-Resistance Brake System- The flywheel weighs 8 kg with a magnetic-resistance brake system, ensuring that there are no dead spots or hitches while performing your workout.

Console Feedback- You will be assured of a great workout with the instant feedback. You will be able to monitor your exercises using the enabled instant feedback. There is a brilliantly lit, extra wide, 8.5-inch, blue LCD fixed in between the handlebars. This forms the perfect place from which to watch and track your workouts while riding the bike. A display of all the required important data is given instantly to ensure that you always stay in the target zone. Such information include total time taken, calories spent, speed at which you are riding the bike, watts, RPM and resistance levels. The heart rate is also monitored with the help of the Polar wireless receiver and contact grips.

User-friendly- We assert the bike to be suitably user-friendly given that its dimensions are kept minimal but enough to ensure that you perform great exercise. It stands with a total weight of just 53 kg, and can easily bear weights of up to slightly above 136 kg. It also features an energy saver mode to guarantee the convenience of the user.

Luxurious Additions- The bike comes with some great additions to its frame including a bottle holder and a reading rack. Among the Horizon Elite R7 fitness equipment is an in-built fan that helps cool off during high intensity workouts. It also comes with several built-in speakers which you can use to play your favorite music while performing your exercises.

Passport Feature- This is one of the many features that blew our mind away. This is a unique feature, not even present in the Elite U7 Upright Exercise Bike review. It brings the feel and beauty of biking outside your home. You can simply connect a HD TV which will be screened with your destination footage on the large screen. The video as per speed and intensity of the bike is synchronized to amplify that feel, providing you with an immersive experience.

 

What We Don’t Like:

There is very few that we could say the Horizon Elite R7 bike has failed. These include:

Heavy- Some of the Horizon Elite R7 Exercise Bike reviews point out that the bike is a bit heavy. Portability becomes an issue with this bike.

Complicated- Although a high level of technology has been integrated into this bike, some users consider it to be way too complicated, especially for the average user.

Expensive- Compared to other models, this exercise bike is a bit more expensive. The Horizon Elite R7 price is not what everyone would afford. However, we are sure that the price is definitely worth the cost, considering the many benefits it has to offer.

Our Verdict:

The Horizon Fitness R7 recumbent Exercise Bike with ViaFit comes with a 1-year warranty on labor, 3-year warranty on the parts and a lifetime warranty on the frame. That guarantees how much durable and effective this bike is. It has been designed in such a way that your workout won’t be tiring and always fresh.

You can thus be assured of the ultimate riding and workout experience, regardless of whether you are an amateur, novice or pro.
