Recumbent exercise bikes allow you to exercise on a stationary bike with less strain on the lower back and better circulation in your legs. The design of the bike allows you to enter and exit the seat easily, so it can be used by people of all ages and abilities. Recumbent bikes can even be used by the elderly and in rehabilitation.

Recumbent exercise bikes allow you to focus on muscles in your thighs, hips, and buttocks in a comfortable position. You can add heavy flywheel resistance to some bikes which will provide you with a great total body workout. Some come equipped with added features such as magazine racks, water bottle holders, graphical displays and pulse measurement equipment.
