Recumbent is a term used when cycling in the non-conventional position of being sat down with your legs forward. An unusual style of transport which first took to the roads some 80 years after the invention of the bicyle which you or I would normally think of. Fast forward to the 20th century and we have the very first exercise bike which went on to be probably the most popular pice of home exercise equipment available. So we have regular exercise bikes, then why not recumbent versions?
A recumbent riding position may not be everyones cup of tea, but research shows that less strain is placed on your joints and muscles which makes them more suitable for disabled and injured cyclists. This is in addition to all the usual health benefits that using an exercise bike can bring and because of this, our recumbent exercise bikes have proved to be a valuble asset in our product inventory and continue to so.
