Mouse over the console to the left to learn more about how our user centered console can help you get the best workout with convenient features.
The 3G Cardio Elite RB X Recumbent Bike features an incredibly comfortable, adjustable seat and back rest which will conform to your body shape and size. Extremely well built and with a small compact overall length of 49”, the Elite RB X Recumbent Bike will fit into spaces other bikes won’t. Easy roll transport wheels and a smaller, easy to see over upper console will make working out a breeze! With a user weight capacity of 350 lbs. and a 7-year parts warranty, the Elite RB X Bike will feel like you brought the health club home!
The process of selecting a recumbent bike is quite simple. It comes down to comfort. We use an oversized seat cushion and an Airflow Mesh Flex™ adjustable back rest to help the seat conform to your body shape and size guaranteeing comfort to your backside throughout your entire workout.
One of our favorite terms is “perceived exertion.” This refers to how intense you feel your body is working. If you are uncomfortable on your bike, you will feel like you are working harder than you really are. If your exercise bike is comfortable, your “perceived exertion” will be lower, and you will enjoy your workout more. It is that simple.
In addition to the amazing comfort of the seat and back rest, the 3G Cardio Elite Recumbent Bike also uses an advanced 3-method seat frame adjustment system.

The seat on this bike is amazingly comfortable, makes working out really nice. Free shipping and it was pretty easy to setup. Will probably do the white glove install next time. Thanks!
I wanted to give you some feedback about my new bike. Overall I give it a 10 !
It was delivered by UPS freight as promised. It was on a pallet which surprised me but I was impressed with that.
It took about 20 minutes to unpack it. Whoever designed the packaging is a genius.
It took me about 2 hours to put it together, and I did it alone. I am 68 so crawling on the floor and working at odd angles isn’t easy for me. But the directions were very clear and all the parts were there! Unpacking the hardware from the blister packs was probably the most difficult thing! I struggled the most with attaching the control panel for some reason, and figuring out what to do with the wiring took some thought.
I have worked out on the bike twice and I love its functionality. I am 6’4″ tall so was a little worried about the legroom but I actually had to move the seat forward a couple of notches so tall customers need not fret. I weigh in the upper regions of the 200s and the bike handles my weight with no problems. It is super quiet, almost silent. The seat is very comfortable and all the adjustments are quite handy. I am having a little trouble getting used to the functions of the control panel but that will come with time.
All in all a very pleasant experience and a very well designed bike. I am very pleased. Thank you.
I love my 3G Cardio Elite recumbent bike. I’ve gotten heavier over the years and this bike allows me to really get a good workout without straining my back or knees.
The 3G Cardio Elite RB Recumbent Bike gets 5 stars from us! We both use it 4-6 days a week. Betty even does a Zoom spin class using it! Ron and Betty, Aurora, Colorado
Calling your machine “The world’s most comfortable” exercise bike is quite a statement, but the 3G Cardio Elite Recumbent bike didn’t disappoint. The two-seat adjustment made it easy to find a comfortable position to get on and off the bike.
I have to give high marks and kudos to the team at 3G Cardio. We had an issue with a local delivery company due to covid and 3g went above and beyond to find us another local company that could deliver and install. Once that company was found, it could not have gone smoother. They delivered, put the bike together in a garage, and moved it to my mom’s LR. within about 2hrs. Everything said about 3G’s customer service and team is true. I was contacted throughout while they worked out the issue.
As far as the bike – it is outstanding. The bike is for my 83 y.o. Mom who can’t get out much to walk due to covid/winter and she really enjoys biking. She is in a condo so size, a quiet ride, good back support, and easy on and off were most important, The bike met all those needs and more, It is a very high quality bike with a great design. She is very pleased!
Thank you 3G for the top notch customer service and the quality product! We could not be happier!

I bought this 3G Cardio Recumbent Exercise after doing tons of research on similar products of all price ranges. I used to be a daily runner for 30 years until I couldn’t. I started walking several miles a day, again until I couldn’t. I’m now preparing for a total knee replacement as soon as the COVID 19 pandemic is behind us. I was looking for a way to keep exercising but especially be prepared to rehab after surgery. I am blown away with how serious a workout I can get on this machine with absolutely no knee pain! It is the closest thing I have found to the feel of running, without the pounding. I should have bought this bike years ago! I get a great cardio workout and the results in my leg strength and stamina are amazing. I’m sure that this bike is an excellent rehab tool, but it is so much more. And again, it does not cause any knee pain for me.
My bike was lost in transit the first time. Amazon cancelled the order and re-ordered another one right- away with no hassle. The unit arrived in good order and was simple to assemble, as the instructions are clear and logical. I thought had a problem with the front bearing system at first which turned out to be user error on my part. Note; always put your feet into the toe straps and don’t let them dangle. When I thought I had a problem, I called 3G’s office and they immediately sent replacement parts and arranged for a trained exercise equipment technician to come to my home and fix my bike. THEIR CUSTOMER SERVICE IS SECOND TO NONE! They are a company that is obviuosly proud of the quality of their equipment and they truly stand behind it.
The unit is extremely quiet, even at high RPM and heavy tension. I wall-mounted a 43″ Samsung TV in front of the bike that is perfect for passing the time. I much prefer streaming TV to having some trainer yelling at me to go faster! The seat and backrest are very well designed and very comfortable for long daily exercise sessions. It comes with a chest strap that monitors heart rate. It is so comfortable and intuitive to operate the tension adjustments at your fingertips, you can focus on exercise instead of fumbling with equipment settings.
For the record, I paid full price for this unit. I am so impressed with it and the outstanding Customer Service that backs it up, I thought it deserved a thorough review.
I am writing to let you know my husband purchased the above bike for me as a Christmas gift.
I am well aware we are way past Christmas, but he originally bought me a recumbent bike from one of your “popular” competitors and it was a nightmare. We got the bike in late November, paid for assembly, the guy who assembled it broke one of the parts. He put in the order for the part which did not arrive until January. The next assembly person did not get to us until February at which time he said the bike as a whole was not assembled properly and would have a problem and needed, yet, another part.
The “part” never arrived. I had to make various phone calls and write emails to finally get them to come pick up the remains of the recumbent that lay in pieces all those months on my den floor and be fully reimbursed. That did not happen until mid-April (so much for it being a Christmas present).
My husband researched recumbent bike companies and found 3GCardio. He sent me the link. I liked what I saw. He ordered it and we decided we would put it together ourselves. My Christmas gift arrived in May.
Your company enclosed all of the necessary parts extremely well packed and all of the nuts, bolts and screws sealed in cardboard with numbers and descriptions in the order that coincided with the enclosed assembly instructions. We put it together in a little under 2 hours, taking our time.
I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE this recumbent. First and foremost, the seat is extremely comfortable. When researching the bike, this is the biggest review, that it is THE most comfortable recumbent. When I am on it the bike feels very sturdy, made of excellent materials. It is quiet, you don’t hear it when pedaling. I am glad it doesn’t have the whole “iFit” technology – I didn’t need it. I have asked my husband to write a review and post to the website, but he is waiting – he is tainted by our recent experience. He uses the bike as well, even though it was a gift for me.
I will recommend 3GCardio to my friends. Thank you for building an excellent product!!!!

I love this bike. And the tech support is amazing; I had an equipment issue and the service people dealt with it immediately. Very buttoned up company.
Review for the Elite RB Recumbent Bike
I purchased this bike in August 2020 for home use in absence of regular gym due to covid. Also I was planning to (and have now had) a bilateral total knee replacement surgery and thought this would be excellent to have in the home for rehab. The bike was delivered to my doorstep and as has been commented the packaging itself is an engineering feat. Assembly went smoothly until near the end a screw would not fit due to a slight sizing concern with the thread… once contacted, at no cost (in the middle of covid) a service technician was sent to tap the thread and completed the assembly at the same time. Once assembled, the bike was a breeze to use, however, another concern was noted where there seemed to be discomfort due to a gap between the seat and back. Here is where the company kicked into high gear. The President of the company himself personally took responsibility and believe it or not his R&D team designed and now has mass-produced an extra spacer component in case the fit is not optimal for one’s personal frame or liking. Lastly, another tiny mishap was addressed with a second free visit from a tech. If this sounds like a Comedy of Errors QUITE THE OPPOSITE. The bike now is a riproaring piece of exercise perfection, totally tuned to my needs, with an extremely versatile range of motion and function, and the concerns I had, which were probably quite rare, and to a degree subjective, were addressed by this small business/manufacturer in the most personal, competent, and intelligent manner imaginable. Thank you Bryan, John, and the good people (and geniuses) at 3G Cardio!

Just got my recumbent Bike yesterday. I love it!!! Had a Nordic Trac for about 7 months, and it was the worst , of the worst.The 3GCardio is a high quality , smooth and very easy to operate. The customer service, I got from Bryan, was above and beyond, he was a true professional. I think there will be more 3G CARDIO equipment in our future.

Received my recumbent bike today and absolutely love it! I have a complex tear in my medial Menicus, ACL and a PCL partial tears and since my MRI showed osteoarthritis they said no surgery to give it a year for the partial tears of my ACL and PCL tears to heal and the Menicus to scar over and the Dr said get you a commercial recumbent bike after you finish PT to keep your knee moving so that’s what I did. I researched them and I’m so glad I settled on this one, My husband put it together in about an hour and 45 minutes and it is so quiet and comfortable! Strongly recommend this company.
