The LCR Bike can be used for apartment exercise facilities, physical therapy clinics, fitness studios, and for home use. It is built for light commercial usage, but is ideal for home use with many features and solid quality.

Recumbent bikes have back support, and are easier to mount than upright bikes. The Sole LCR will provide an excellent cardiovascular workout with low impact on your joints. The Sole LCR is used in light commercial environments including physical therapy offices and fitness studios, and is great in your home gym.

This model can handle up to a 350 lb. user, so this is a heavy duty bike.
