The Buzz

Lifecore LC1050RBs Exercise Bike

UPDATE:The 1050RBs has been discontinued and replaced with the all new 1060RB model.  You can check out the 1060 as well as all of the popular current models here to find the one that best fits your needs.

The low-profile display on the Lifecore LC1050RBs is just 42" tall, which is almost a foot lower than competitor models. You no longer have to look over and around the console to watch TV. The power to the display is self-generating so there is no need for a power cord or batteries. Just start pedaling to light up the screen.

Other key features of the Lifecore LC1050RBs recumbent exercise bike include the quiet 24-lb flywheel, an electromagnetic brake system, and the Poly-V Flexonic drive belt that is guaranteed never to stretch.

A narrow 5" pedal spacing reduces stress on the joints and hips, and the bike features thumb toggle switches on the handlebars for on-the-fly adjustments.

The sliding track allows the seat to move fore/aft for an unlimited number of distance settings. This full adjustability provides the best fit for every member of the household.

The seat bottom has a 3-position tilt adjustment, and the contoured seatback reclines further with a gas-assisted mechanism. The seat back’s Ergo-Flex mesh material allows for ventilation to keep you cooler.

Our Take

Reviews on the Lifecore LC1050RBs all mention the club-quality feel, custom-crafted ergonomics, and attractive display, as well as the super compact design. These standard features are also found on the other two Lifecore models costing hundreds less.

For additional features over the other models, the Lifecore LC1050RBs recumbent exercise bike adds two more years onto the warranty, a wireless chest strap, the gas-powered reclining adjustment and seat tilt, the thumb switches on the handlebars, and a larger flywheel.

If you want a Lifecore but feel that spending $1,799 on a bike is overkill, we suggest you might find better value with the LC850RBs at $999 or the LC950RBs bike at $1,399.
