Sole R92 Recumbent Bike Review

Sole R92 Recumbent Bike Is The Best In Its Class!

Sole R92 Recumbent Bike

When you want to take a bike ride in the comfort of your own home, then, the Sole R92 Recumbent Bike should be sitting right there – waiting for you!

Reviews averaging 4.6 out of 5.0 are highly complimentary – offering exuberantly flattering praise.

Only one review was less than the perfect 5.0 rating and, I’m not sure why this lone person rated the Sole R92 so low – at a 1.0 rating.  Because everything this person said about the bike was extremely positive.  The only gripe they seemed to have was cost – even though Sole Fitness just recently lowered the price by almost half! And, considering all the bells and whistles, this exercise bike was a bargain even before the price tag dropped.

Recumbent exercise bikes will give you a complete workout that is gentle to your knees, feet, and joints – without the occasional, painful muscle pulls associated with riding a bike on the street.  Plus, it is worry free.  There is no need to fret about dodging cars and people while pedaling down the road.  And, the weather doesn’t dictate your work out schedule.


Bells And Whistles – Getting Down To The Nitty Gritty

So, what does the Sole R92 have to offer?

Sole R92 Recumbent Bike - 10 pre-set programs

Pre-set Programs – There are ten of them – more than you will ever use.

ECB Resistance Levels – There are 20 different resistance settings that quietly allow the flywheel to create for you more or less ExerCise Bike pressure for your pedaling.  The pedals have a slight inward lean – 2 degrees – to protect against injury and soreness to knees and feet.

LCD Display – It’s big enough that I don’t need get up close and personal – or, get my reading glasses to read even the smallest digital data numbers.

Data Monitoring – Records and displays all the necessary workout numbers – time, speed, distance, calories burned, pulse rate, ECB resistance, etc.

Automatic Turnoff – A great feature that shuts off the bike automatically if it is not being used for 30 minutes.  This facet does not come as a “default”, however, so, you have to activate it yourself.

Chest Strap – The strap wirelessly monitors your body’s reaction to exercising – in real time – and accurately records heart rate as it rises and falls.  Even though this is a great perk, personally, I don’t use it.  The handlebar grips accomplish the same task – and, since I’m holding on to them anyway during the exercise period, I can see my numbers recorded accurately on the LCD display.

Sole R92 Recumbent Bike - comfy seat and strong frame

Padded Seat – Adjustable to 12 different positions which is enough to accommodate any sized human – from 5’ 0” to 6’ 4” tall.  Add in the padded backrest, and this bike is so comfortable to sit on that you could take a nap on it!

Petite Footprint – Covering an area of less than 12 square feet, the Sole R92 is only 30 inches wide and 57 inches long.  It fits just about anywhere in the house that you choose!

Lightweight – At 152 pounds, this bike can be moved around – with its front mounted transport wheels.  But, I suggest finding it a permanent spot where it won’t be necessary to muscle it into another area too often.  It is also amazingly stable for its diminutive size and weight – and won’t bounce around while you’re enjoying a ride – even if your weight is topping out at the maximum weight limit for the machine – 300 pounds.

Sole R92 Recumbent Bike - built-in speakers and fan

Bluetooth Enabled – Connect wirelessly – and transfer your workout information to your Smartphone – or, plug in and listen to your favorite tunes through the built-in speakers.

Fans – This built-in fan go a long way to keeping you cooled down.  It is sufficient for most folks – but, I normally add an extra clip-on fan – or two – for additional air flow.  I’m hot natured – after all.

Easy Assembly – Plan on spending no more than a couple of hours to put this bike together.  This is a pretty simple process if you follow the instructions.  But, if you don’t know which end of a wrench to use – or the difference between a Phillips screwdriver and a socket set – you should unquestionably opt for “expert assembly” at a nominal additional charge.

Great Warranties – The R92 has a lifetime warranty on the heavy duty steel frame – 5 years on parts and electronics – and 2 years on labor.

    Having heard about the sole r92 recumbent bike a few times before now, I just had to check for myself to see what the hype was all about. But after reading this, it is relatively easy to understand why it has an almost perfect review score. It is clearly a deserved hype. The feature that is the most interesting to me is the ECB resistance levels. 

    This has been really informative. Thanks for sharing

    Many thanks to you for giving us such a wonderful article. My dad has pain in his legs and he sometimes has a lot of pain in his ankles so I wanted my dad to exercise without suffering. My father had to go to the gym regularly for exercise which made it more difficult so I wanted an exercise machine so my father could exercise from home. When I read your article, I realized that this is exactly the kind of bike he needs so he doesn’t have to make a trip to the gym every time he wants to exercise.

      Well, this bike – with its special ergonomic features should help your dad exercise without stressing his legs or his ankles.

      Let me know how it works for him!
