It may be because I was born into the generation which grew up with it in the form of laptops, mobiles and games consoles, but in my opinion there isn’t much in this world that can’t be made better with the help of technology. Almost everything I own has some element of technology in it and I wouldn’t have things any other way. This principle still applies when I exercise and never more so then when I go out cycling. If I visit a gym I always head straight for the exercise bikes as I know these are the machines that will give me the best workout (and they normally have a fancy computer screen attached!) I like being able to see just how well or badly I’m doing so I know when to improve and speed up, and fortunately for me there is such a machine that can do this in my own home too. The Sole Fitness R92 is a recumbent exercise bike which is overloaded with clever features which should help you out when working out, so let’s take a closer look.                                 

So tell me more about what it can do

This Sole Fitness machine is not your ordinary exercise bike. It has a hell of a lot more features than many of the other bikes currently on the market. The R92 helps to minimize stress on your joints, and its additional ergonomic touches include patented two degree inward slanting pedals, a padded seat and lower back supporting backrest. The semi-recumbent platform and adjustable seat/handlebars have six preset workout programs already included and two custom ones which you can choose to set if you wish. There is a 9 inch LCD screen and even a fan for when you are building up a sweat. They really have thought of everything here! The best is yet to come however as this package includes a pulse grip heart rate monitoring chest strap which is heart rate monitoring compatible, a water bottle holder and even an MP3 system so you can chose your favorite song to inspire you for those last few miles.

So what size is this exercise bike?

Measuring 20 x 50 57 inches, the people at Sole Fitness have managed to squeeze and awful lot in to this little bike. The number of high tech features compared to the weight doesn’t bear thinking about and I still have no idea how they did it. That is until you take a look at the weight….. This bike weighs a whopping 152 pounds so you won’t be lifting it any time soon. 

The positives

This machine is perfect for almost anyone who uses it. It is adjustable to whatever level you need it to be, it has enough technology in it to keep slightly sad people like myself happy and it should prove to be a very good long term investment with it’s much higher than average build quality.

The negatives

One small complaint has cropped up a couple of times about this bike and it is to do with the stabilizing weights which keep it level. This problem should be easily solved with a slight adjustment, but if not I recommend getting in touch with the manufacturers.

Conclusion

You won’t find a better bike no matter how long you search. Finding the small complaint above was pedantic and only necessary due to this being a review, but my conclusion is that you should go and buy one right now. If however you don’t believe me you can see for yourself just how well it compares to others at www.fitnessshopper.us.
