The Nautilus MY18 R618 and Nautilus MY18 R616 are both high-quality recumbent bikes, combining ergonomic comforts and a wide range of features to keep your workouts motivating and challenging.

The Nautilus MY18 R618 is the premium recumbent bike over the Nautilus MY18 R616, built to withstand higher intensity training for the more serious athlete.  Being the higher-end model and belonging to the Nautilus Performance Series range, the Nautilus MY18 R618 offers several upgrades over the Nautilus MY18 R616 including:

·         A heavier duty flywheel (30 lb)
·         An upgraded seat with gel cushioning and infinite backrest adjustment
·         A SightLine console that’s tilt adjustable for a personalised viewing angle
·         STN display with better visual colors that’s easier on the eyes
·         In-reach controls in the handlebars by the side of the seat for quick adjustment of the resistance level
·         Higher use weight capacity (325 lbs)

(See full features/specifications compared in the table & bullet points below.)

However, the Nautilus MY18 R616 is still an impressive recumbent bike, with many of the same features of the higher more expensive model.  If you’re not looking to perform intensive training, then the R616 is ideal for you and offers the same amount of programs (29) and resistance levels (25) as the R618 to keep your workouts varied and progressively challenging.

The Nautilus MY18 R618’s console is considered to be the best in the fitness industry, but the R616’s is still a very good console and incorporates many of the same features as the R618 such as Dual Track blue backlit screens (2 displays), Bluetooth connectivity for data transfer to online fitness tracking apps, 4 user profiles, USB charging port, speakers with MP3 input, media shelf, and 3-speed cooling fan.

Both the Nautilus MY18 R618 and Nautilus MY18 R616 Recumbent Bikes offer both contact pulse and telemetry heart rate monitoring to help ensure you stay within your target heart rate zone as you exercise.  Besides heart-rate stats, other workout stats displayed on the console’s screens include time, speed, distance and calories burned.

Both the Nautilus MY18 R618 and Nautilus MY18 R616 Recumbent Bikes are constructed with a low step-through frame design for easy mounting and dismounting.  Although the seat design differs between the two bikes, both seats are ergonomically designed for user comfort and sit on a sliding seat rail system with an easy-to-use adjustment lever to adjust the seat’s height and proximity to the pedals to get the best fit for individual users.

Look at the pictures of the seats and you’ll see the difference in design between these two bikes.  The Nautilus MY18 R618 has a gel cushioned base whereas the Nautilus MY18 R616 has a padded base.  Both seats have a ventilated backrest that helps with airflow as you exercise and gives added welcome support to your back as you cycle.

Both the Nautilus MY18 R618 and Nautilus MY18 R616 Recumbent Bikes come with a handy water bottle holder but the placement of the water bottle holder differs between these two bikes with the R618’s water bottle located on the frame underneath the console while the R616’s water bottle holder is located by the side of the seat.

Both the Nautilus MY18 R618 and Nautilus MY18 R616 Recumbent Bikes are sturdily constructed with oversized crossbar tubing, center-support and integrated levelers for added stability.  The Nautilus MY18 R618 allows for a slight higher user weight capacity of up to 325 lbs compared to the Nautilus MY18 R616’s 300 lbs weight capacity.

To reflect the long lasting durability of these recumbent bikes, the Nautilus MY18 R618 and Nautilus MY18 R616 both come with generous manufacturer’s warranties but as you would expect, the higher-end Nautilus MY18 R618 comes with a longer warranty of 15 years on frame, 3 years on parts/electronics and 1 year labor compared to the Nautilus MY18 R616’s warranty of 10 years on frame, 2 years on parts, 1 year on electronics and 90 days labor.





Fitness tip:  Cycling for just 30 minutes could burn between 207-345 calories for women, or 252-420 calories for men, depending on the intensity of the cycling.

The Nautilus MY18 U618 and Nautilus MY18 U616 are high-quality exercise bikes, combining sturdy build quality with ergonomic comforts and a wide range of features to keep your workouts motivating and challenging.

The Nautilus MY18 U618 is the premium exercise bike over the Nautilus MY18 U616 and as you would expect offers several upgrades in design and features and is built to withstand more intensive training like HIIT for serious athletes.  From the Nautilus Performance Series range, the Nautilus MY18 U618 Exercise Bike’s upgraded features include:

·         A heavy-duty 30 lb flywheel
·         Multi-grip positions handlebars
·         Larger elbow rests
·         In-reach controls at the top of the handlebars
·         Gel-cushioned saddle
·         Dual water bottle holders
·         Higher user weight capacity of 325 lbs
·         Top-of-the-range tilt-adjust SightLine console for best viewing angle
·         STN display for better visual colors that’s easier on the eyes

(See table/bullet points below for full features and specifications compared.)

However, the Nautilus MY18 U616 is still an impressive exercise bike (ideal for moderate training) and offers many of the same features as the U618 such as 4 user profiles, 25 ECB magnetic resistance levels, 29 programs (program variety may differ – see details in the table below), and Bluetooth connectivity for online fitness tracking.

Although the Nautilus MY18 U618’s SightLine console is considered to be the best in the fitness industry, the Nautilus MY18 U616’s console incorporates many of the same premium features including Dual Track blue backlit display, integrated media shelf, acoustic chambered speakers, MP3 input, USB charging port, 3-speed cooling fan.

Both the Nautilus MY18 U618 and Nautilus MY18 U616’s consoles display motivating workout stats including time, speed, distance, calories and heart-rate.  Both bikes offer contact pulse and telemetry heart-rate monitoring to help you stay within your target heart-rate zone as you cycle.

Both the Nautilus MY18 U618 and Nautilus MY18 U616 Upright Bikes are ergonomically designed for user comfort but if you look closely at the pictures of these two bikes you’ll see the differences in the design of the handlebars and the saddles.

The Nautilus MY18 U618’s handlebars are designed with multi-grip positions so you can find the most comfortable position for your hands or place your hands in different grip positions to focus on different muscles.  Note the larger elbow rests on the Nautilus MY18 U618 too.  The Nautilus MY18 U616 also has elbow rests (though smaller) which is a bonus as most exercise bikes in this price bracket don’t have extra touches like that.  Both bikes’ handlebars are angle adjustable.

The Nautilus MY18 U618 has the advantage of In-Reach controls in the top of the bike’s handlebars for quick resistance changes, which the Nautilus MY18 U616 doesn’t have (though of course you can change the resistance via the console).

If you look at the pictures of the saddles you’ll see that the Nautilus MY18 U618 is gel-cushioned (cushions the glutes for a more comfortable ride over longer periods) whereas the Nautilus MY18 U616’s saddle is padded.  Both saddles are 4-way adjustable, i.e. up, down, forwards, backwards for a custom fit for different rider heights.

Both the Nautilus MY18 U618 and Nautilus MY18 U616 Upright Exercise Bikes are sturdily built and feature integrated levelers for added stability.  The higher-end Nautilus MY18 U618 allows for a slightly higher user weight capacity of 325 lbs compared to the U616’s 300 lbs.

Both exercise bikes come with a generous warranty to reflect the manufacturer’s confidence in their long-term durability, but as you would expect the higher-end U618 has a longer warranty of 15 years on frame, 3 years on parts/electronics and 1 year labor compared to the U616’s 10 years on frame, 2 years on parts, 1 year on electronics and 90 days labor.





Fitness tip:  Cycling for just 30 minutes could burn between 207-345 calories for women, or 252-420 calories for men, depending on the intensity of the cycling.
