SOLE R92 Vs. LCR Recumbent Exercise Bike Comparison: SOLE is a leader in heavier duty, high quality exercise bikes. Their bikes resemble those that you would find at the Gym. The SOLE R92 and LCR are some of the most popular and best selling exercise bikes on the market. Highly rated, they both are excellent exercise bikes for the home. The LCR is heavier duty, made for light commercial duty. Both models have magnetic resistance, can handle heavier riders, and have a built-in fan & speakers, with a backlit LCD screen. Both come with a tablet holder and USB charging port.

The main differences between the SOLE R92 and LCR are: The LCR model from a structural standpoint has a heavier flywheel, heavier duty frame, and is built for light commercial use. The SOLE LCR has a larger LCD screen (10.1-inch Vs. 9-inch). The LCR also has double the resistance levels (40 Vs. 20) of the R92 for more challenging workouts. The parts and labor warranties are much longer for the LCR model (parts 5 years Vs. 3 years). Both models have Bluetooth Pulse Grips, and Heart Telemetry. Below is a comparison chart of the differences between the two exercise bike models.

SOLE R92 vs. LCR Console Comparison: The Consoles are similar, both are backlit making them easier to read. The LCR has a larger screen (10.1-inch Vs. 9-inch). Both have a built-in workout fan, built in bluetooth & speakers, and both have 10 workout programs.

The SOLE LCR bike has 20 more resistance levels than the R92 (40 vs. 20). Both models have pulse grips, and are wireless heart telemetry enabled.


Bottom Line: The SOLE LCR upright exercise bike offers a wide array of improvements over the R92 model, including more resistance levels, larger screen, longer parts and labor warranty. The LCR is also a light commercial model, built to last and withstand the rigors of heavy duty usage. The LCR has a heavier flywheel (30 vs 20 lbs.) for a smoother ride, and has a heavier frame. Both bikes have a tablet holder with USB charging port. We feel that the SOLE LCR is superior in features and more sturdy like a Gym bike, but is also more expensive. Both models are highly rated and economically priced by Sole.
