York C301 Exercise Bike Review

We have not yet had the opportunity to properly review the York C301 Exercise Bike, but hope to be able to very soon.

Our view – another feature-packed, quality bike from York. The C301 has a great look and feel to it and it’s one of those bikes you can’t walk past without being tempted to get on. It’s a very comfortable bike to use with both vertical and horizontal saddle adjustment to find that perfect riding position.

The console is easy to use, although some may find the smaller numbers hard to read, and displays all your workout data in a well-laid out manner. There are 22 pre-set programmes that range from the gentle to the downright difficult so it should keep you going for years.

The 4 heart rate programmes are based on your age and alter speed targets and resistance levels to keep your pulse in the optimum zone for fitness and fat-burning. You can also design your own custom programme and use the fitness test to monitor your progress.

You might want to look at the York C302. For about another £100 you get all the above programmes plus a better riding position, console and 4 user profiles if more than one member of your family are going to be using it.

As with all York machines you can feel the quality even down to the design and construction of the bottle holder! The warranty is a great 3 year parts and labour cover so you can get an idea of their confidence in the bike.
