Vertical and horizontal adjustments can be made for ideal exercising form, with a step-through frame design prevents the likelihood of tripping or losing balance when getting on or off the machine. Operating on a belt-driven system, the 1711 utilizes a magnetically-charged flywheel that minimizes resistance and excess noise for an unencumbered workout. Eight different levels of resistance can be selected via the front-mounted dial mechanism, providing on-the-go adjustability that can be integrated directly into a user's regimen. Adjustable foot pedals are also included that can be tightened to form a tight hold around the rider's foot, while integrated "Pulse" sensors in the unit's side-handles measure second-to-second heart rate for consistent feedback throughout a session. Safe operation of the 1711 can be practiced by riders up to 250 pounds, which also features front-mounted transport wheels that allow the machine to be quickly and easily maneuvered.
