For those who are looking for an exercise bike that relieves their back or are recovering from injury, the recumbent bike is a perfect choice. Recumbent exercise bikes are a great way to engage in active recovery without strain.
Recumbent bikes, also sometimes referred to as sit-down exercise bikes, are designed with supportive backrests and easy accessibility. The ease of getting on and off makes recumbent bikes popular with seniors and people with limited mobility. Users can still obtain an effective workout all while being supported.
Today’s sleek models provide some fantastic features for the discerning rider; from airflow backrests with gel seats that mould to your body shape and even customisable programs. Many of these bikes come equipped with built-in generators that power them without any cords to reduce tripping hazards.

Frequently Asked Questions
How Is A Recumbent Bike Different From an Upright Bike?
Recumbent bikes feature a wide seat rather than a saddle and a backrest. The upright bike has a comfortable saddle seat and no backrest, requiring you to sit upright as you pedal. On the recumbent, your legs are positioned out in front of you to reach the pedals vs the upright bike where your legs are vertical. Recumbent exercise bikes are lower impact and provide a safer more supported workout.
Is a Recumbent Bike a Good Workout?
Recumbent bikes can provide an effective workout, but exercise bikes like the spin bike and air bike are better options for a more intense high calorie-burning workout.
The benefit of recumbent bikes is that you can do upper body exercises while pedalling.
Who is a Recumbent Bike Most Suited To?
Recumbent bikes are most suited to those seeking a low impact machine that is easily accessible. The recumbent bike is often used by those who experience discomfort on other exercise bikes, those rehabilitating an injury or elderly people.
Ultimately the bike you choose for your home will depend on your unique situation and training goals.
