Designed by former Ironman triathletes to be the ideal low-impact substitute for running. On the ElliptiGO, you'll get a high-intensity workout without the jarring impact of running or the discomfort of traditional cycling. It's perfect for fitness enthusiasts or cross-training athletes. What if you could run, sprint, and climb hills and never be sidelined by impact-related injuries?
No, its more like low impact running! At its core, the ElliptiGO is a fitness device that emulates running outdoors without the associated impact. It was designed to be the ideal low-impact substitute for running. We believe it is the ideal cross-training device for healthy runners and the best replacement for injured runners. It delivers a low impact exercise experience that is closer to running than anything else that is on the market today.
The ElliptiGO is a great solution for a wide variety of people. For anyone who wants a comfortable, fun, efficient, low-impact, and weight-bearing exercise that they can enjoy outdoors. As a result, our customers range from hard-core cyclists and elite athletes to recreational riders just looking to get fit or have fun. It's a customizable experience, enabling you to challenge yourself as much or as little as you’d like.How easy is it to get on?
Super Easy and Fun! We’ve found that very few people are unable to ride the ElliptiGO the first time they get on it. Like anything new and different, it takes some getting used to, but it's easy to ride and more stable than it looks with a low center of gravity. Most people get comfortable on the ElliptiGO within 5 minutes and many are comfortable within 30 seconds.
Is it easy to ride in urban or high-traffic areas?
Riding an ElliptiGO is very similar to riding a bicycle in high-traffic areas. The advantage that the ElliptiGO has over a tradititional bicycle is that the rider has an elevated line of sight and his whole body is visible, making him easier to see for pedestrians, drivers and other cyclists.
How does the braking system work?
The braking system consists of hand levers that actuate rim brakes on the front and rear wheels. These operate very similar to standard brakes on a mountain bike.
How many speeds are there?
All shifting is contained within the rear hub. The rider can change gears by using a “trigger shifter” located on the handlebars. The bike does not need to be in motion to change gears.
What type of footwear is recommended when riding the ElliptiGO?
The ElliptiGO can be ridden using almost any closed-toed shoe that does not have a high-heel. We recommend running shoes for workout rides, mostly because they are comfortable and tend to breathe well.
Can multiple people use the same bike?
Yes, people of different sizes can use the same machine with little or no adjustment. Unlike bicycles, where the seat and frame have to be set differently for riders of different body configurations, most people will be able to ride the ElliptiGO comfortably without any adjustment at all. For longer rides or training, the ElliptiGO can be quickly adjusted to provide an optimal fit for the rider. The height of the handlebars and their distance away from the rider can be adjusted, as can the stride length and foot position.
How does it do climbing hills?
The ElliptiGO is a great climbing machine, because it is designed for the rider to use their weight to power every stride. In fact, climbing is one of the best things it does. Because the ElliptiGO 11R has eleven speeds and the 8C has eight speeds, the rider can select from several gears on these models that will enable them to climb steep hills comfortably. The 3C model is designed to handle mostly flats and climbs not much above a 5% in grade. The 3C can handle rolling hills, sloping climbs and freeway overpasses with ease, but if you live in a very steep, hilly area, the 8C or 11R may be best option for you.
What is cruising speed and max speed?
Cruising speed on the ElliptiGO is about 15 miles per hour. On a flat road, a strong rider can comfortably reach 20 miles per hour and a strong rider can exceed 25mph. The ElliptiGO rider has a higher drag coefficient (or higher air resistance) than a rider on a traditional bicycle. This becomes advantageous during descents where the elliptical cyclist will rarely break 30mph, facilitating speed control during descents.
