Ergonomically Tuned for Comfort
- Oversized, Molded-Foam Seat Cushion
- Flexible, Breathable Backrest
- Molded Armrests with Integrated Heart Rate Sensors
To give you the best workout, an exercise bike needs to fit each rider properly. Where the bike needs to allow for enough range of motion in the seat, accommodating you whether short or tall. To accomplish this, we've designed the R5i with an adjustable back rest to allow for proper ergonomic positioning and added chair-style armrests to support your arms, even while you're checking your heart rate, eliminating any stress on the neck and shoulders. Plus, the office-chair-style armrests and adjustable seat back are perfect if you experience low-back pain. No matter your size or sitting preferences, the R5i can be adjusted to your perfect fit.
QUIET, DURABLE AND power-free
- Self-Generating Power System
- Transport Wheels for Easy Mobility
Unlike most exercise bikes, the R5i has an integrated self-generating power system providing power to all the bike’s electronics, so there's no power cords or batteries needing to be replaced every couple of months. The lack of a power cord also makes the bike easier to move around. Simply lift the back-end of the bike and it's ready to roll on its transport wheels. And once you are ready to ride, the R5i stationary exercise cycle delivers smooth and quiet pedaling – even when you’re pushing yourself during a hill climb or interval program.

Love our R5i!
Love our R5i recumbent bike. Though it tells us our walking 5 days a week isn't enough. The recumbent bike really shows us another way to build up our leg muscles so we can walk further in the same amount of time. And I love riding the bike. It gives me alone time to listen to the many podcasts I like.
Thank you Darrell for you wonderful review! We are so happy to hear that you are enjoying your R5i! It's alway nice to get some alone time to recharge!

Delivers everything we expected. Plus, I need the backrest which was one of the determining requirements. The staff and others were very knowledgeable, friendly and very customer focused
Thank you for your review! Enjoy your recumbent bike.
the wires from the panel slipped thru the column and were tic tic ticking on the flywheel. i tied them away so no tic but now a squeak that comes and goes. i'm going to ride a while to see if it gets better or worse. probably can't find it until it is consistent. any suggestions? send a mechanic.
Try tightening the bolt holding on each crank arm REALLY tightly. This should help. If you have questions please call our technical support team at 801-973-9993 ext. 4 for further assistance.

Overall, I do like the bike. I like the various workout options it offers and the quietness of the bike. I would add an 'avg speed' to the display as a future enhancement. However, I do find the seat somewhat uncomfortable....the depth of the seat pan mostly. I think it is to large, and to hard. The hardness is less of a factor, and could be a non issue if I was able to shorten the distance between the back and the seat. Additionally, the arm rests could be improved if they could be adjusted forward and back. I find my entire hand hanging over the front edge versus resting entirely on the arm. A much bigger issue when my wife uses it.
