What if you could run, sprint and climb hills every day and never be sidelined by impact-related injuries? On the ElliptiGO 8C, you'll get a high-intensity workout without the jarring impact of running or the discomfort of traditional cycling. The 8C is the premier outdoor fitness device for fitness enthusiasts or cross-training athletes who will ride on flat and hilly terrain and desire a wide range of workout resistance levels.
The ElliptiGO 8C has the versatility to give you the exercise experience you're looking for, whether you are a competitive athlete looking to improve your cardiovascular fitness or someone who wants to enjoy comfortable and fun outdoor exercise. The 8C is our most popular model and the elliptical cycle with the best balance of performance and cost. It's a great tool for marathon training programs, for staying fit while rehabbing an IT band, stress fracture, or other injury, or for taking in the sights while you get your exercise.
Regardless of the moniker, there are four fundamental attributes of an elliptical bicycle:
Elliptical bikes enable people to take low-impact weight-bearing exercise outdoors. Studies show that people tend to exercise longer, more intensely, and more consistently when they are able to do so outdoors. As a result, elliptical bikes provide people with a great way to get fit and stay active for years to come.
8-Speed Shimano hub enables 25 mph sprints and the gearing to climb the steepest hills.
Patented Ellipti-drive system provides for a comfortable, fun and low-impact ride.
Patented adjustable stride length enables riders of all sizes to share the same ElliptiGO.
Premier Ergon grips provide comfortable hand positions for hill climbing and long rides.
