A new line of cordless Lifecore exercise bikes has been developed over the last few years. These new machines are compact, extremely quiet, and very comfortable.
Lifecore Fitness, Inc. is located in Carlsbad, California, just north of San Diego. The company began over 20 years ago as a fitness retail store and moved into the business of importing its own cardio products. They began by making a full cardio line-up including treadmills, elliptical trainers, variable stride trainers, rowing machines, and exercise bikes, but have since dropped the treadmill line to focus on their stronger products in the other categories.
Lifecore has decided to keep it simple with a very limited but first class line of exercise bikes: one upright, three recumbents and the Assault AirBike.
All of these models have self-generating consoles, heart rate control programs, and compact frames. The new self-power feature (no plug-in required) seems to have added a big price jump from previous year models.
The exercise bikes include:
The Lifecore Assault Airbike ($999) is the only fan bike in the lineup, with automatic resistance, multiple workout options and dual arms to work out the upper body.
The Lifecore 1060 UB ($1,399) is the sole upright choice, with a whopping 47 built in workouts, an LED with multiple metrics including time, distance, watts, distance, heart rate and calories, mp3 music capability with speakers, walk through design and high adjustability.
You then have the 860RB, 960RB and 1060RB recumbent bikes, at $1,199, $1,499 and $1,899, respectively. These bikes all have different features and capabilities as you move up the line.
All of the five bikes are well-built with sturdy, heavy duty frames and are backed by solid warranties and good customer service.
Lifecore exercise bikes are super quiet, stylish, ride like commercial models, and represent an excellent investment for maintaining health and wellness.
For a number of years now, we have read many outstanding reviews by consumers who love their Lifecore bikes, and we expect the new models to earn similar praise.
Lifecore LC1050UBs Upright - A Best Buy by Consumer Digest. Wonderful ergonomic design feels and fits better than most competitor models.
Lifecore LC850RBs Recumbent - If you don’t want to spend over $1000, and feel that a compact footprint bike will be a good fit for you, the LC850RBs is an excellent choice.
Lifecore LC950RBs Recumbent - The Lifecore LC950RBs makes the most sense when you compare the warranties, frame size, flywheel, and features of the three Lifecore recumbents.
Lifecore LC1050RBs Recumbent - Club-quality feel, custom-crafted ergonomics, attractive display, super compact design. These standard features are also found on the other two Lifecore models costing hundreds less.
