The Sole R92 and Sole LCR Recumbent Bikes are both high-quality recumbent exercise bikes with a durable construction, comfort ergonomics, and a wealth of premium features to keep your workouts motivating.

The Sole R92 Recumbent Bike is ideal for home use, while the Sole LCR with its more heavy-duty flywheel (31 lbs compared to the R92’s 20 lb flywheel) is ideal for more intensive use either at home or in a light commercial setting.

Besides the difference in flywheel weight, the Sole LCR Recumbent Bike also has twice as many resistance levels than the Sole R92 (40 EMS levels on the LCR versus 20 ECB levels on the R92), so if you’re looking for a lot more challenge then the LCR is the one for you!

Both the Sole R92 and the Sole LCR Recumbent Bikes offer 10 preset programs to keep your workouts varied – 6 standard, 2 heart-rate and 2 custom programs.

Motivating workout stats including time, speed, distance, calories burned and heart rate are displayed on the Sole recumbent bike consoles.  Both the Sole R92 and LCR consoles are easy-to-use and offer Bluetooth connectivity for seamless transition of workout data to online fitness apps on your own mobile device.

However, the display screen on the consoles differ between these two recumbent bikes, with the Sole R92 having a 9” LCD screen and the Sole LCR having a 10.1” TFT LCD screen.

Additional premium features on both the Sole R92 and Sole LCR consoles include:  Bluetooth audio speakers; media shelf and tablet holder; USB charging port; and integrated cooling fan.

The Sole R92 and Sole LCR Recumbent Exercise Bikes both offer two ways of measuring your heart-rate as you exercise – via contact pulse grip sensors in the handlebars by the side of the seat or via a wireless chest-strap.  A chest-strap heart-rate monitor is included with the R92 but not with the LCR.

Both the Sole R92 and Sole LCR Recumbent Bikes are constructed with a low-step-through frame design that makes it easy to mount and dismount the comfortable padded seat.  The seat is adjustable for different user heights with simple to use adjustment levers with a sliding seat rail system (see user height compatibility listed in the comparison table below).

The ergonomic oversized pedals on both the Sole R92 and Sole LCR are designed with 2-degree inward incant to ensure correct body posture / joint alignment and helps to prevent strain on your feet and knees as you exercise.

Additional features of both the Sole R92 and Sole LCR Recumbent Bikes include:  water bottle holders so you can keep hydrated as you exercise; front and rear stabilizers for added stability; and front-mounted transport wheels for easy relocation.

Both the Sole R92 and Sole LCR Recumbent Bikes are electric powered and sturdily constructed with a durable heavy-duty steel frame and aluminum shroud.  The bikes have the same footprint but there is a slight difference between the weight of the two bikes (see specifications listed in the comparison table and bullet-points below) and subsequently there’s a difference in the overall user weight capacity between the two Sole bikes with the LCR supporting a higher user weight capacity of up to 350 lbs compared to the R92’s 300 lbs capacity.

Both the Sole R92 and Sole LCR Recumbent Exercise Bikes come with a generous warranty to reflect the manufacturer’s confidence in the quality of these bikes (see difference in warranties offered for each of these bikes listed in the comparison table below).





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.
