exercise bike – Horizon Fitness Comfort U, 2017

The Horizon Fitness Comfort U Upright Exercise Bike excels in its design and comfort level. With this upright exercise bike, you can adjust the seat both horizontally and vertically and benefit from a large, gel seat. This stationary bike also features a 5.5-inch LCD display and built-in speakers. However, its fitness-tracking features are lacking, which is one reason this exercise bike did not rank higher on our lineup.


This Horizon Fitness exercise bike only offers 10 programmed workouts. This still provides options to add variety to your daily workouts, but many of the best products offer 20 to 30 pre-set workout options. However, there are 16 resistance levels you can choose from, which is the average number of levels you will find on this type of device. It is also compatible with a heart rate chest strap or watch so you can get the most accurate heart rate reading when working out with this bike.

Ultimate comfort is available on this stationary bike. It features a large, gel seat that you can adjust both vertically and horizontally. The pedals also feature adjustable straps so you can secure your feet onto the pedals for safety as your increase your speed on the bike.

A 5.5-inch LCD display is located on the handlebars of this product. On this display you can view your workout history including your time, calories burned, speed, heart rate readings and resistance level. There are also audio-in jacks on the console as well as built-in speakers. We were pleased that this device features some entertainment options to help you enjoy those long, intense workouts.

For an upright exercise bike, this model is lightweight. It weighs approximately 68 pounds. It is 53 inches tall, 22 inches wide and 47 inches long, which is similar to the dimensions of many other products on our lineup. The Horizon Fitness Comfort U???s frame is covered under a one-year manufacturer’s warranty. All moving parts and labor are covered for only one year. We would like to see the parts and labor covered for at least two years or longer.

The Horizon Fitness Comfort U is designed with comfort in mind. It offers many design features to ensure you receive ultimate comfort during long workouts. However, we would like to see additional fitness-tracking options such as more pre-set workouts. Also, a longer parts and labor warranty would enhance this exercise bike even more. However, if comfort is your main priority, then this bike is a great option.
