Affordable Quality and Motivation

Recumbent Fitness Bikes are very popular ~ for some very good reasons ~ but unfortunately they are also priced much higher than upright fitness bikes and Indoor Cycles.

One of the best "Features" of the Proform 440ES is the price. The 440ES is one of the most affordable recumbents that you can find online with the exception of the really cheap, low-end brands ~ which I do not recommend in most cases.

Some of the reasons why recumbents are so popular ~ as I mentioned above ~ is because they are definitely the most comfortable fitness bikes, they provide good support, are quiet and your hands and upper body are free for things such as using your phone, tablet or reading a book or magazine or lifting weights for a more complete workout.

The Proform 440ES has a sturdy ventilated seat back for additional comfort and the adjustment lever for the seat is easy to use for fine tuning the seat for the perfect fit.

Proform 440ES ConsoleOne of the most important features for any fitness equipment is the motivational, boredom breaking and entertainment options. Most of us need things to keep our minds occupied while our bodies workout to help pass the time.

The Proform 440ES has a music player jack, built in speakers and a USB port for your device, large, easy to read console to keep track of your stats, 32 built-in workout programs ~ in addition to the unlimited workout and entertainment options with the optional iFit module ~ and, of course, the tablet computer holder on top of the console for however you would like to use your tablet computer.

About-Bicycles Review

I would say that most Proform fitness bikes ~ especially their recumbent models ~ fall into the mid-range price and quality category. You really need to be careful not to get into the very low-end, cheap-o models when you want a fitness bike that can handle regular workouts and that will last for many years.

The Proform 440ES recumbent is currently selling at a good price for the quality and reputation of this manufacturer.

It is always best, of course, to see if you can find the fitness bike that you are considering buying somewhere offline and actually trying it out in person. This is not always possible so here are a few overall quality indicators that you can usually check from the details online: 

The User Weight Capacity which is a good indication of the products durability. The Proform 440ES is rated at 350lbs which indicates good durability.

The Warranty is a also good indicator of the manufacturer's confidence in the product. The 440ES has a Lifetime warranty on the frame and 2 years on parts and 1 year on labor which is a fairly good warranty.

In general, I have found the Proform 440ES to be a good quality recumbent exercise bike for the price.
