Smooth V2300 Exercise Bike Review
The trainer is able to produce the range of motion (and feel) of a recumbent exercise bike while providing a 17″ stride length just like an elliptical.
Consequently, many consumers have become quick fans of this little gem which also provides a “Step Through” Frame, Silent Magnetic Resistance, Padded & Adjustable Seat and 7 pre-defined workout programs.

Rating: 82.2/100. 2 in 1 Elliptical Stepper Motion provides a natural vertical pedaling motion for an extreme workout on the lower muscles. The Smooth V2300 does, however, feature below average number of workout programs and no mp3 compatibility.
- Ultra smooth & quiet Silent Magnetic resistance
- Get 2 motions in 1 with semi-recumbent stepper
- Flywheel design provides additional stability
- Innovative “Step Through” frame design
- Comfortable padded seat, also adjusts
- Oversized pedals provide stable ride
- No built-in cooling fan, few pre-defined workout options
- Only eight levels of resistance (most bikes do at least 12)
- Not music friendly (no iPod dock, built-in speakers)
If you crave products that are both fun and innovative — the Smooth V2300 is worth your time.
The exercise bike gets the job done with Silent Magnetic Resistance (w/ adjustable resistance levels), oversized & textured pedals and wireless chest strap for a quick heart rate readout.
All crucial exercise data (including heart rate reading) is displayed really nicely on the dual-color LCD screen.
Better yet, the 17-inch ergonomic stride length and oversized anti-slip pedals gives you the feel and glide of a low-impact elliptical workout — while seated.
The Smooth V2300 is equipped with 7 workout programs, a modest pre-defined workout selection.
The Smooth V2300 is also not compatible with iFit, which is a bit disappointing for the price paid.
Lastly, the Smooth V2300 has eight different resistance levels which is good but not great.
For the Smooth V2300 being so innovative we do wish a little more attention was placed on the workout programs.

The Smooth V2300 is fairly compact, weighing 166 lbs. and transportable with tilt and go wheels.
