Eight levels of resistance are attainable through the unit's rotating dial selector, placed conveniently below in front of the rider. A fully-adjustable seat system is included for vertical and horizontal placement, and well as a foot pedal strap system ensures that users of all heights can exercise comfortably. The on-board LCD display offers a variety of mid-workout information including ride time, speed and distance as well as amount of calories burned. The device can also project a rider's heart rate through the "Pulse Grips" installed in the handlebars of the 1611. In addition, the "Pulse Recovery" feature lets users know how quickly their pulse has recovered after exercising, issuing a score for ambitious riders to try and improve.
