Stationary exercise bikes can be a great way to build muscle strength, increase cardiovascular health and circulation, boost immunity and help manage your weight. Since biking doesn’t involve impact, it is easier on the joints than most other aerobic activities.
Whatever your riding preference, LifeSpan has an indoor fitness bike to meet your needs, whether for residential or commercial use. Our recumbent and upright bikes come equipped with USB drives and/or Bluetooth. Using these features, exercise results can easily be tracked and managed using the LifeSpan Club. With the Bluetooth-enabled line of commercial exercise bikes, you can use our iPad® apps which provide a graphical interface to your workouts along with many additional features. Plus, our commercial exercise bikes generate their own power so you can charge your mobile devices using the USB port.
Recumbent bikes are generally ideal for users where comfort is a major factor. The semi-reclined riding position of a recumbent bike helps reduce stress to the lower back, “sit bones” neck, wrists and hands. Additionally, with the back in a slightly reclined position, full expansion the lungs becomes easier and less forced than that of an upright bike.
Our line of stationary recumbent bikes includes the residential R3i and commercial R7000i. Both models feature a step-thru design, allowing you to get on and off the bike with ease. The most important advantage of a recumbent bike compared to an upright bike is seat comfort. The R3i and R7000i use a molded seat back, similar to high-end office chairs supporting the lower back and maintaining proper posture. This seat back is breathable to reduce sweat build up. The contoured molded foam seat bottom is both comfortable and durable and the office chair style armrests with built in sensors to pick up your heart rate.
For outdoor cyclists, the benefits of indoor cycling with upright bikes include a better simulation of what you experience out on the road. An upright bike can be used to keep workouts specific to the muscles you use when riding outdoors. With your body in an upright position from your hips being placed over the pedals, an upright bike will provide more of a full body workout than a recumbent bike.
Our line of upright bikes includes the S2 indoor bike, and the C3i and C7000i traditional upright bikes for commercial or home use. All models include height adjustable seats accommodating riders from approximately 5’0” to 6’8” tall depending on leg length
The primary differences between an indoor bike like the S2 and traditional upright bikes are frame geometry and drive system.
Frame Geometry: Indoor bikes are designed to position the body most like an outdoor bike with the handlebars extended further forward and with handlebar height and seat fore and aft adjustments. This allows you to position the indoor bikes to best simulate outdoor riding and better supports stand up pedaling
Drive System: Unlike a traditional upright bike where the flywheel can spin freely when you stop pedaling, on an indoor bike the pedals and flywheel are directly connected so when the flywheel spins the pedals are forced to rotate as well. This supports pedaling forward and backward adding variety to your workout. Resistance levels are manually adjusted so that no power source, not even batteries are required.
