Overall Rating


Pros The most obvious “pro” for this trainer is the space saving design. From transport wheels to the ability to fold and store, this machine is only 32 inches wide by 28 inches long making it incredibly easily to use in smaller spaces. For being so compact, this trainer still offers adjustable features like a power adjustable incline and adjustable pedals.
Cons Because this is a compact, lightweight trainer, the flywheel is only 18 pounds, with a 325 pound weight capacity, which means this trainer does not offer the smoothest, quietest workout experience. The lighter the flywheel, the more noise and shakes. Other than the flywheel weight, this trainer also lacks any adjustable stride so you are stuck with 18 inches, which is not a very impressive stride.
Summary If you are looking for a compact trainer for everyday use, the SE7i is a quality mid-range machine; however; because of the emphasis on space saving, this trainer features a shorter stride and lighter flywheel weight, which makes this trainer less than ideal for very tall or heavier people.

The Bottom Line

If you are looking for a sturdier trainer that will allow for users of all shapes and sizes, you may want to look elsewhere, but as compared with other trainers in this series, the SpaceSaver SE7i is a great deal for the price. It lacks the bells and whistles of some more elite trainers, but you get what you pay for.
