proform 300 spx spinningThe ProForm 300 SPX is a budget-friendly bike that does not compromise on quality. Indeed, while this model doesn’t come with any fancy feature, it comes with a nicely heavy flywheel that is designed to draw the entire body into an efficient workout and help you burn more calories in a shorter amount of time. In fact, studies have shown that spin bikes can very easily create a deficit of up to 1200 calories per hour, with the exact amount depending on each user’s individual height, age, gender and fitness level.

This particular machine is also designed to improve your overall health with particular focus on the lung and cardiovascular capacity. Best of all, the bike also comes with additional amenities such as a water bottle holder to help you stay well-hydrated during the entire duration of your workout.

Product Features and Ease of Use

While this model doesn’t come with as many features as more expensive models BFSB5 and Sunny Premier, the ProForm 300 SPX comes with an impressively heavy 44 pounds flywheel, which is great for such an affordable model, and provides an extremely smooth and realistic cycling motion. The heavy flywheel also weighs the bike down and prevents it from moving or wobbling during highly energetic training sessions. Users are also going to relish in the highly comfortable pedals that are wide enough for various shoe size. These come with toe cages that provide an extra-firm grip.proform 300 spx seat

This model comes with a both vertically and horizontally adjustable seat that can be angled according to your personal body height and shape. This particular feature also enhances your comfort while preventing any excessive strains or aches. The handlebars are also fully adjustable and comfortably padded to protect your fingers from blisters and sores. This can come in quite handy to anyone who likes to indulge in more energetic workouts because they protect your hands even when they get sweaty. Additionally, thanks to the adjustable saddle and handlebars, users will be able to work out the glutes as well as the upper legs.

The spin bike comes with a Felt Resistance System that can be adjusted to the user’s particular fitness level. With this feature, beginners will also be able to allow their body to gradually get used to the workout and improve both their metabolism and stamina.

Assembly and Parts

This particular bike does call for some assembly. Fortunately, the boxed packaging does come with all the required parts and tools required to put it together. An instructions manual is included with the different parts but in spite of the instructions, it did take me around an hour or more to put the different parts together. A couple of users claimed that there were a few tools missing from the boxed packaging but I personally did not encounter this problem. However, users who did encounter problems managed to contact the aftersales team to resolve the issue.

Downsides

Quite a few users complained that the bike arrived in damaged or taped-up packaging. However, this was later linked to issues with the shipping company and not ProForm Fitness. Another person deplored the mild whining noise that the bike emitted. A couple of athletes bemoaned the fact that the seat remained quite tough and unyielding even after a few weeks of continuous use.proform 300 spx indoor cycle

A Budget-Friendly Bike for Beginners

While it does have a couple of drawbacks, this spin bike does remain quite a recommended investment, especially if you’re looking for an entry level stationary bike.

All in all, we appreciated this model’s sturdy frame, but what we liked best was its flywheel, that at 44 pounds, is heavier than what you will find on similarly priced models such as the Sunny SF-B1001 and the Bladez Fitness Fusion GS.

The ProForm 300SPX Indoor Cycle Trainer can be purchased on Amazon and is covered by a solid manufacturer’s warranty of 5 years on the frame and 90 days on the parts and labor.
