The flywheel in an exercise bike is what creates resistance. You can choose the level of resistance to increase your workout intensity.

16 Levels
Resistance Type

The type of resistance shows what kind of flywheel is being used (if any), and its weight if the manufacturer provides it.


Type refers to the style of the ride: Recumbent bikes allow you to lay back, while Upright bikes are more like road bikes (lean forward).

Drive System

The bike's drive system is how your pedaling interacts with the rest of the bike (flywheel) to give you a good workout.


It's important to choose an exercise bike that will last, and the material of the frame determines how durable the bike is.

Durable Steel

The most important part for comfortability during your workout, the seat should be adjustable and have ample cushioning.

GelSoft™ Seat

Pedals are the driving force for an exercise bike, and should be comfortable, adjustable, and easy to control without slipping.


Bike Programs allow you to complete a workout with changing speeds and inclines, without changing anything manually.

16 Programs
Heart Rate

Heart Rate programs allow you to track how many times your heart is beating per minute (bpm), and some control the workout for you.

Contact Grips

Display refers to the screen you'll look at to monitor workouts. LED and LCD displays are similar to TV screens.

Grafixx™ Hi-Res Display
Max. Weight

Max. User Weight is the amount of weight, in pounds (lbs), that the bike can safely support, which can represent durability.

250 lbs

Dimensions are included to help you figure out if this treadmill will fit properly (Length x Width x Height and Height x Depth).

39.25" x 15" x 25.5"
Accessory Tray

Some bikes include an accessory tray for holding items such as water bottles, wallets, keys, or MP3 players like iPods.


Cooling Fans


Some exercise bikes can fold up and/or have wheels that make it easy to roll them around for convenience and to save space.


The warranty is a very important part of your investment. The longer the warranty, the longer you can get free/discounted repairs by the manufacturer.

    i would love to have a different seat that will be more comfortable. the original one is horrible. can someone please help.

    What other seat can be used on the C2 SI bike other than the original one. My first Gelsoft seat split years ago and I finally ordered a new one in January. It has already split and it is very irritating to have the gel spilling out every time I use it. I am not that huge- (5'9" and 150 lbs.) I would actually prefer a seat without the gel. I can always make a padded seat cover for any other kind of seat.

      Hi Joan. You can purchase various seats at local bike stores that may be more comfortable for you. Sometimes it isn't necessarily the gel padding but the overall size of the seat and the way it hits your sit bones that can make the difference. You can call a representative from NoridicTrack directly for their expertise at which would work with their equipment or bring the information on your model to a bike store that can take a look at how the seat is screwed on to make sure it will be compatible.
