The Octane Fitness XRide xR6C is a top recumbent seated elliptical machine in this price range. This seated Octane Fitness xR6xi model can be used in your home gym and for fitness enthusiasts of any skill level who want a low impact workout. This machine is tough enough for fitness clubs.

Recumbent ellipticals are ideal for those with disabilities or mobility problems as it is easier to climb into than upright ellipticals. Many are used for rehab or physical therapy. It is a heavy duty machine, capable of handling user weight up to 300 pounds. The Octane xR6C provides an effective cardiovascular workout by combining upper and lower body flexibility and coordination into one impact-free motion and is easier on your joints. Regular use on elliptical trainers will increase heart and lung capacity while improving your health and burning calories. Connect to the Octane fitness APP using the built-in Bluetooth® 4.0 connectivity.


The Octane Fitness xR6C recumbent elliptical uses 20 levels of Magnetic Brake resistance using an eddy current brake (the best type). Magnetic resistance has the advantage of no friction, reliability, little to no maintenance costs, and quiet operation. A weighted flywheel provides for smoother strides. Static & moving handlebars for a full cross training workout. Power stroke technology provides optimal leg extension, which can burn up to 23% more calories and activates up to 3x more muscles than a recumbent bike.
