Stamina Elite Total Body Features:

Sturdy Steel Structure:

One of the most outstanding features of this Recumbent Exercise Bike is the sturdy build. Made of steel, the bike has wide stabilizer bars that help maintain stability during workouts. The strong build improves the bike durability.

It Is Adjustable:

Working out on a rigid bike brings more harm than good. It is imperative to check and confirm whether the recumbent bike has size adjustable features to ensure best user experience.

The Stamina Recumbent Bike is adjustable backward and forwards to fit the bike to your leg height and also downwards and upward to optimize your handlebar handling position.

Pedals with Straps

Resistance Levels:

One of the best features of the Stamina Elite Recumbent Exercise Bike is the range of resistance levels that can be adjusted. The levels are controlled by a tension knob that is situated at the front of the bike, and can be used to change the magnetic resistance levels for both the feet and hand pedals. The knob has eight clearly marked resistance levels which makes it easier to increase and decrease tension with ease.

The Drive System:

The belt drive system and flywheel allow for smooth and consistent pedaling. The Stamina Elite Total Body Recumbent Bike drive system makes it quiet and efficient, and apart from eliminating any chances of injury or unnecessary strain, it helps the machine last long with no maintenance.

Textured Pedals:

The bike pedals are textured to give traction when the user is pedaling, thus eliminating the risk of slippage. They are also fitted with plastic straps that fasten the foot to the pedal, enhancing grip and ease of pedaling.

The pedals are wide and provide a good base for pushing. An important point to note here is that the foot pedals and the hand pedals are independent of each other. One can use any of them independently without the other moving.

Comfortable Seat:

User comfort is a major feature that requires keen attention to detail. The Recumbent Exercise Bike comes with a pretty comfortable seat system, with a large surface padded seat and padded backrest.

The backrest offers excellent support for the lower back and helps maintain proper workout posture while the wide seat offers a balanced distribution of weight, thus eliminating sore points. The seat is also fitted with handlebars that offer support while leaning backward, increasing comfort and stability and enhancing user focus.


The Stamina Recumbent Bike comes with a basic console that keeps track of the essentials like distance, speed, calories burned and time. It is powered by two AA size batteries and has an auto power on/off function. All recorded figures are reset to zero once the console is turned off.

Best Thing About This Recumbent Bike:

  • With the hand pedals, it is possible to work out the upper body at the same time as the lower body.
  • The bike seat system can be adjusted horizontally and vertically to get the most comfortable fit.
  • The Recumbent Exercise Bike also has a low step-in feature which makes it easy to mount and dismount.

They Can Improve On:

  • Their hand pedals have no resistance when using the foot pedals.
  • This might limit users who want to progress through the various tension levels simultaneously.
  • The record keeping has to be done manually as the console does not have a memory function. The console also has no preset programs.
  • There is no tension when pedaling backward on both sets of pedals.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):

Q: Is the seat backrest adjustable?

A: No. But you can adjust the seat distance from the pedals to your convenient length.

Q: Do I have to assemble the whole package myself?

A: No. You only assemble the seat and handlebars.
