Detailed Overview

The SpaceSaver 735 is the mid-level trainer in the Pro-Form SpaceSpaver compact rear drive series, offered for just $799. Unlike the entry-level model, the 735 offers two adjustable features: the oversized pedals and the incline. The oversized foot pedals are adjustable and also include comfortable traction control, perfect for the feel and safety of the user. The incline is power adjustable and can be changed from 0 to 10 degrees, with just one touch from the console, and there are 20 digital resistance levels as well.  However, the distance of the stride is not specified. When it comes to the console, this trainer comes with a 5 inch back-lit LCD display screen that is equipped with 22 workout apps (11 calorie and 11 performance), as well as an iPod compatible music port and two speakers.  This trainer is also equipped with iFit compatibility, which allows users to access hundreds of workouts, in addition to routes from Google Maps, but the module nor the subscription are included. The console tracks a number of stats and is formatted in RaceTrack (TM) display for easy tracking. Like other Pro-Form trainers, the 735 is designed with a durable, commercial-grade steel frame and Silent Magnetic Resistance (SMR) technology. The warranty offered for this trainer is lifetime on the warranty, two years on parts and one year on labor.

 The Bottom Line

The Pro-Form SmartStrider 735 is the ideal trainer for anyone looking to save money but still get a trainer that is pretty durable and easy to use. For the price, this trainer offers great adjustable features and a fairly advanced console but it’s not going to be the quietest or smoothest trainer for this price point. The bottom line is that if you are looking for a fairly reliable trainer that has some customizable options but is not over the $1,000 price point, the SmartStrider 735 is a smart buy.
