While upright exercise bikes are good for many people, there are different benefits of recumbent exercise bikes to consider. Recumbent bikes are those on which you recline and lean back in a comfortable seat. Perhaps the best benefit of all is that you take the pressure off of your knees. One of the reasons people buy exercise bikes is because their knees and ankles may not be able to take the pounding from jogging and running. People want to get a good cardio workout without the impact of having their feet "pounding the pavement" so to speak. If this is the case, you would want the exercise bike that puts the least strain on your knees and ankles. Please feel free to browse our large selection of recumbent bikes from award winning brands.
