NordicTrack GX 3.0 Sport Cycle Review

Experience the health benefits of outdoor cycling, indoors with the NordicTrack GX 3.0 Sport Cycle.

This is the entry level model in NordicTrack’s range of “sports” or “spinning” exercise bikes. The NordicTrack GX 3.0 Sport Cycle is similar to a racing type cycle and has the seat, pedals and handlebars positioned to enable a forward leaning, crouched down posture.

This trainer features a heavy (44 lbs) inertia enhanced, flywheel to provide a smooth, natural action and a resistance mechanism that can be used to adjust the intensity of the workout.

Co-located with the resistance control, mounted below the handlebars is a brake lever that the user can use to quickly stop the motion of the bike at any time.

The equipment is covered by a 5 yrs warranty on the frame, and 90 days parts and labor.

Here’s a list of the main features:

… adjustable seat

The saddle seat is similar to one found on a road going bike, but has a greater degree of adjustment.

In addition to height adjustment, the saddle can also be moved forward and back in order to obtain the optimum seating position. Once adjusted the seat can be held firmly in position using the large locking knobs.

… precision flywheel

An important component of any exercise bike is the flywheel. This model has a 44 lbs, inertia enhanced, flywheel that has been designed to give a smooth operation. This will benefit the user with a much more natural feel when pedaling.

… resistance mechanism

An adjustment knob situated behind the handlebar stem can be used to change the intensity of the workout. The user can simply turn the knob in order to vary the resistance to their pedaling effort.

… braking system

Co-located with the resistance mechanism, a brake lever enables the user to apply the brakes and bring a halt to their cycling session quickly just as would be the case on a normal road going bike.

… pedals with toe clips

Just as on a road going bike, this trainer is equipped with pedals that have built-in toe clips and straps.

… water bottle holder

A conveniently located water bottle holder is attached to the frame in a similar position as you would find on a conventional cycle.

… transport wheels

The equipment has two transport wheels attached to the front of the frame that enable the equipment to be moved easily from one location to another.
