ProForm 315 CSX Recumbent Bike Review

The Proform 315 CSX Recumbent Bike is inexpensive, comfortable and includes some great motivational features- such as built in iPod support as well as the best-selling iFit program- making it one of the best recumbent exercise bikes in its price range (the Schwinn 270 Recumbent Bike
is also worth a look at).

This Product is now discontinued. For other great Bikes we recommend these


The 315 CSX comes equipped with a generous number of workout programs – 20, enabling you to work out in a way that is in line with your goals. You can choose between weight-loss, aerobic and performance workouts.

Recumbent Frame

The recumbent frame allows you to get on and off the bike more easily than many other models allow, and has been engineered for a high level of comfort thanks to being designed with ultimate back support in mind.


The Proform 315 CSX comes with 16 resistance levels, which do an excellent job of challenging you and varying your workout. The resistance can be changed automatically, through the smooth, frictionless Silent Magnetic Resistance system, meaning that there is no need for your workout to be interrupted as you change the level of resistance.

Adjustable Handlebars

The adjustable non-slip handlebars have been ergonomically designed for maximum comfort, which means that you can ride for longer, and thus, burn more calories or achieve your fitness goals at a faster rate.


The seat is larger and more comfortable than the seats found on other bikes in this price range. It is adjustable, oversized and comes with lumbar support.


Speakers tend to be little more than a novelty on exercise bikes. Fortunately, the Proform 315 CSX is equipped with an Intermix Acoustics 2.0 Sound System, which provides a high level of sound quality thanks to its rich, equalized sound. There is also a music port which allows you to connect your iPod.

Heart Rate Monitor

The dual-grip EKG heart rate monitor records your pulse through the built-in handlebar sensors to a high degree of accuracy. This is beneficial for those who like to work out in their target heart rate zone.


The Graphics display can either show feedback on your workout at a glance or in multiple information fields. Pulse, calories burned, distance, time and speed are all tracked accurately.


This exercise bike comes with a 5 year frame and 90 day parts and labor warranty.

User Reviews

The overall consensus of the Proform 315 is that it’s a quality bike available at a reasonable price, with many users praising the smooth pedaling motion, comfortable seat, range of resistance levels and adjustable settings of the bike. However, there seems to be a problem with the pedals.

Any Complaints?

There isn’t much to complain about. If we were being fussy we would say that it would have been nice if a telemetry (wireless) enabled heart rate monitor was included – although, very few manufacturers equip their models with this feature in this price range.

Anything Else You Should Know?

There isn’t much to add. All you need to know is that the Proform 315 CSX is well-built, packed with useful features and offers an excellent low impact, aerobic workout. Best of all – it is very affordable.
