Product Details

Vectra VX-18

Print Product Brochure

It is the ultimate home gym, having undergone many design improvements since its introduction in 1987 as the On-Line 1500. Even then, it revolutionized the industry with features such as the patented “no cable change” On-Line® system. No one had experienced a machine like this — more versatile, comfortable, smooth, more solid than anything before.

You’ll find that the VX-18, like all Vectra products, is the result of much forethought. Our engineers have gone through the “What if we…” stage over and over before coming to a final solution. This is clear when you realize that this sturdy machine is the embodiment of so many patents, each of which contains a multitude of patent claims.

Some of the features you’ll appreciate include the flat, standard Olympic height bench that rolls away from the press station, turning the VX-18 into a two-user machine by incorporating the vast group of exercises that can be performed with dumbbells. The
VX-18, as well as it’s multi stack equivalents, the 3850 and 4850, include the patented Parallelogram Direct-Drive press arm system. The press arm lifts the weight stack directly, this eliminates “sponge” (movement of the bar before resistance is encountered) and reduces cable wear. But the real benefit is the motion, the parallelogram generates and arc similar to the natural motion for a correctly performed free-weight bench press And like all stations on the VX-18, the weight is lifted at a direct 1:1 ratio, allowing you to measure your strength progress in actual pounds instead of unrelated “units.”

And when it comes to progress, the VX-18 gives you room to grow, with the optional 260lb. stack and the adjustment of the weight reduction springs on the parallelogram press arm, you can achieve a maximum resistance of 310lbs. far greater than any other home gym on the market.

The components used in the VX-18 are the very best and the machine carries a commercial warranty. It’s heavy duty, with solid stainless steel guide rods, powder coated weight plates, ball bearing pivot points and oversize bushings for smooth, solid operation and long life. It also features ball bearing pulleys and aircraft quality cable with extra strong swaged stainless steel fittings, for additional safety. The large diameter tubing in the frame creates a sleek, smooth appearance and adds to the machines overall strength as well as. In fact, like all Vectra machines, the VX-18 frame are sturdy enough that the user can actually perform dips on the press arm!
