Sole Exercise Bikes – The New Line of Quality Fitness Bikes
Designed with consumers in mind, Sole exercise bikes were newly launched in 2011 and have been well received. The company is focusing on clean efficient designs coupled with less programming, and they left off the unnecessary frills that would otherwise drive up the price.
About the Company
Sole’s line of treadmills and ellipticals have been on many Best Buy lists since Sole began producing fitness equipment two decades ago. With the company’s entry into the exercise bike market, you can expect their engineers will bring their best game to the challenge of designing great indoor bikes.
We expected Sole exercise bikes to shine in areas of warranty, quality, and performance, but we did not expect the price of the bikes to be so ... reasonable. Consider it a bonus that you can buy a Sole for as little as $799.
A Look at the Bikes
Sole makes just five models among three categories of stationary exercise bikes. All styles come backed with Sole’s lifetime frame warranty, 1 to 2-year labor coverage, and 3 to 5 years on parts and electronics.
- The Sole SB700 Spin Bike is a beauty. Whether you like to do gentle workouts of easy rides, or heart-pounding timed races, this spin bike provides a superior level of comfort as well as adjustability to fit the different riders in the household.
- There are two models of upright exercise bikes: the affordable Sole B94 Upright at $799 with its efficient 26-lb flywheel, 20 resistance levels, and comfortable gel seat. The light commercial model is the self-powered LCB Upright ($1,299) that features a hefty 30-lb flywheel and up to 40 levels of resistance.

- Sole also makes two recumbent exercise bikes, the self-powered LCR Recumbent ($1,299), and the basic R92 Recumbent ($799). Each features Sole’s patented 2-degree inward sloping pedals for optimum foot comfort. The LCR model is self-generating so you don’t need to place the bike near a power outlet.
The Choice of Hotel Chains
You will find Sole equipment installed in leading hotels, including Omni and Hilton Hotel chains. Sole actually pioneered the concept of putting easy-to-transport treadmills, ellipticals, and exercise bikes in guest rooms. You can own the same high quality Sole bikes for home use that are used in these hotels and you won’t pay more for it.
Worth the Wait
When you come across reviews for Sole exercise bikes and other fitness products you quickly learn that the company is renowned for its many years of dedicated quality and constant innovation in everything to do with cardio fitness. Sole could have produced a line of indoor fitness bikes years ago but they waited until they were ready and got it just right.
