The ElliptiGO is the world’s first elliptical bicycle. Designed by runners as the ideal cross-training device, the ElliptiGO combines the best of running, cycling and the elliptical trainer to deliver a low-impact, high-performance workout outdoors. It is an ideal cross-training device for healthy runners and a fantastic replacement for running for injured runners. It delivers an exercise experience that is closer to running than anything else available today. The ElliptiGO is similar to the indoor elliptical machine in that it is designed to simulate the benefit of running without impact, which is why the elliptical is the most popular piece of gym equipment. But the majority of people using the elliptical machine would probably rather be outside if they had the option. And that is the biggest attraction for the ElliptiGO. If you want to simulate running, the best and most enjoyable place to do so is outdoors. Additionally, the ElliptiGO simulates running even more than the elliptical trainer because of its longer stride length and steeper return stroke, which creates a more fluid and less choppy runner’s stride.
Compared to a traditional bike, you’re averaging 30% more of a workout at the same speeds, giving you a greater workout efficiency, better core engagement, and higher average heart rate. All while keeping you in a more comfortable standing/running posture that doesn’t put strain on the lower back or neck. It’s very easy to ride and most say that it’s more stable than a bike with its longer wheel base and low center of gravity. And it easily adjusts to anyone from 5’0”-6’8” with the adjustable steering column and 4 different stride lengths. It’s the closest thing to running without the impact, and it makes your workout a lot more fun!
