The Octane XR6C Recumbent is engineered for moderate use and will last for many years for the consumer willing to take proper care of their investment.

Octane has a generous lifetime warranty on the XR6C along with a decent 5 years on parts and 1 year on labor.

Brief Overview

The Octane XR6C is a pleasant mix of the best components of a recumbent bike and an elliptical fitness machine wrapped into one innovative design that delivers a concentrated workout for a large base of fitness enthusiasts. The XR6C is out of the budget-friendly zone but is a worthy investment for those needing the reclining comfort of a sitting position and still benefit from the exercise motions provided by a quality elliptical machine.

Overall Quality

The Octane XR6C Recumbent has a 71” frame that is best suited in a dedicated workout spot in any residential or commercial setting. It has a front drive system enabling smooth performance between 20 levels of high-intensity resistance. Ergonomic moving handlebars provide multiple grips for toning upper body extremities that can be used with or without foot pedal engagement as stationary pegs reside on the frame for sole handlebar workout regimes. Moving pedals have a 16” stride turning pedaling action into elliptical exercise motions targeted at multiple muscle groups located in lower body regions. A 5-position tilting seat provides maximum comfort with 20 locations on a slanted frame for optimal comfort during pedaling sessions. The XR6C has a retro console that displays a handful of performance stats and offers easy entry into the workout booster programs that are infamous in the Octane Fitness line. There are 5 built in programs for motiving consumers to focus on building better cardio health while they pedal their way to fitness glory.
