A LIVE class is done at the same time as the instructor. The instructor will have the ability to call out riders, riders will be able to send Hi-5s to each other, and see the leaderboard in real time. If you join a LIVE class late or leave early and are unable to complete more than 80% the class will be counted as DNF.
An ENCORE class is a pre recorded class that is put on at a certain time, this could be a class that was previously LIVE or a popular On Demand! This enables riders to ride with others as if it is a live! The class starts when you join, so you always start at the beginning, this means if you join 10 minutes late the class will still start from the beginning. You can still Hi-5 other online users, and compete in real time. If you join an ENCORE class late or leave early and are unable to complete more than 80% the class will be counted as DNF.
