Workout Programs

Although the Sole SB700 does not come with any pre-defined workouts, this bike is still a good choice for endurance exercise.

Tracking your time, speed and distance allows you the flexibility of fine-tuning your own routine, and it’s all displayed adequately on an LCD screen.

The Sole SB700 is also not compatible with iFit Live, a major drawback for some exercise enthusiasts.

Exercise Bike Features

Besides a comfortable ride, one of the main attractions of the Sole SB700 trainer is the backlit blue LCD console.

Not only can you track time, speed and distance on the display, but the console is also compatible with wireless heart rate chest straps. This ensures you will always be in your targeted heart rate during your fitness routine.

Overall, the Sole SB700 rides comfortably, all powered by the 48 lb. flywheel. Users may adjust resistance for added difficulty and nearly all shapes and sizes are supported on the 2.0mm oval steel tubing frame (300 lbs. max user weight).

The adjustable seat and handlebars move up and down as well as fore and aft, allowing a user to find just the right settings for a great workout.
