How long will the Nautilus U616 Upright Cycle last?

The Nautilus U616 Upright Cycle has an incredibly light weight frame, weighing only 63 lbs. when fully assembled. Though it can hold 300 lbs. of workout weight, heavier users would be better off seeking a heartier machine. It comes with a credible 10-year frame warranty, along with 3 years on parts and electronics and 1 year on labor. An extended warranty is offered at the time of purchase and is worth the investment. The U616 is rated for light to moderate use and will last for many years of workout delight with proper care and management.

Brief Overview

Nautilus U616 Upright Cycle has many redeeming qualities for users of the lighter persuasion and is firmly in the budget-friendly zone costing less than $500. It has a sleek design and is very mobile considering its light weight and the oversized transport wheels handily attached on the front stabilizing leg. In addition, purchasers can choose to pay an extra $129 to have the U616 fully assembled in their residential room of choice. Use of this bike in any commercial setting will void the warranty.

Overall Quality

Nautilus U616 Upright Cycle has Bluetooth capabilities making it able to connect to a variety of fitness apps allowing users to track performance data on the journey to better health. Connecting also allows users to cycle through a variety of world-wide locations keeping motivation high during riding fun. The console has two small LCD screens and comes with 29 programs to keep riders cycling towards lofty goals. Smooth performance enhances the 25 levels of resistance that are easy to reach with quick touch buttons on the console. There is an integrated tablet holder that allows users to keep streaming devices close while the seat adjusts both horizontally and vertically to fit users of different heights. Added conveniences include an adjustable fan, USB charging port, and an MP3 input port for playing workout tunes.
