At Orbit Fitness, we stock a premium selection of exercise bikes in a range of styles to suit your training needs.
Spin bikes are also sometimes referred to as cycling bikes or indoor cycles. Spin bikes are designed to replicate road bikes. This style of exercise bike requires you to lean forward with the option to stand on the pedals for a more challenging workout.
These fitness bikes are generally used for spinning group fitness classes and those who participate in cycling as a sport, but can also be used for HIIT workouts.
Upright Exercise Bikes
This style of exercise bike has higher handlebars so you only have to lean forward slightly. Unlike the spin bike, you can’t stand while riding. These exercise bikes are built to promote sitting, with a wider and more padded seat.
Upright exercise bikes are great for regular cycling and tend to be good for anyone who is simply looking to improve their cardio and increase activity.
Recumbent Exercise Bikes
If you’re looking for an exercise bike that is easier on your lower back and gives you the option of using weights to work your upper body at the same time, then recumbent bikes may be the best choice for you. Recumbent bikes are also great for rehabilitation post-injury as well as an exercise option during pregnancy.
Air bikes are a different beast.
Air bikes use air resistance vs the standard braking system on other exercise bikes. They have moving handles, which adds an upper body workout to your training. They are designed for high-intensity interval training, not steady-state cycling or cardio that combines intervals.

Frequently Asked Questions
What Exercise Bike Is Best for a Home Gym?
It all depends on what you are trying to accomplish. If you’re looking to rehab an injury then a recumbent bike would be best. If you’re wanting to do hardcore HIIT workouts, then an air bike would be the best option.
Most exercise bikes take up a similar amount of room, although spin bikes are generally more compact and lightweight.
Remember to add a heavy-duty exercise equipment mat to keep the bike from sliding and to protect your floors.
Which Type of Exercise Bike Is Most Suitable for Seniors?
A recumbent bike is the best option for older people because they are easy to get on and off and have a backrest to provide back support.
How Long Should I Ride an Exercise Bike?
It depends on the exercise bike you go with and the type of workout. If you’re doing a steady cycle, anywhere between 30 - 60 minutes is good. If you are doing a HIIT workout then 15 - 30 minutes is a good amount of time.
