Overall Rating


Pros The 19.0 RE is an excellently designed trainer with a durable steel frame and a long stride. This model leaves very little that is not adjustable. From the stride length to the actual foot pedals, this trainer is ideal for users of all shapes and sizes and of all ability levels.
Cons Includes advanced entertainment features with an iFit enabled console, but users must purchase the wireless module and membership separately. Some of the advanced features may also work improperly at times. This model is also the most expensive trainer in the rear drive series.
Summary The ergonomic design and sturdy steel frame make this trainer incredibly durable, comfortable and safe to use. The adjustable features make this trainer even better with so many customizable options making it easy to get a work out in every time.
