Are recumbent exercise bikes effective

Are recumbent exercise bikes effective? Well, that depends on what you’re using them for. If you’re talking about speed, then yes, they’re definitely effective – the VeloX3 recumbent bike is in fact the fastest bicycle in the world, holding the world speed record at 133.78 km/h (83.13mph).

However, stationary recumbent bikes are a bit different. These machines are one of several different types of exercise bikes (opens in new tab) used for cardio workouts. Their seats are typically much lower to the ground and their pedals are positioned in front of the cyclist, rather than directly beneath them.
