What are the Benefits of Elliptical Cycling?
A smooth, elliptical motion provides a great workout that’s gentle on your knees, hips, ankles and back.
Fun to ride
The speed, handling and motion feels like “running on air,” giving you a carefree exercise experience at any age.
The natural “stand up” riding position reduces stress on your neck and back while completely eliminating seat pain.
Burns 33% more calories than a traditional bicycle, providing a better workout in less time.
Meant to ride freely outdoors on the same paths that you walk, jog, run or bike, but compatible with indoor stationary trainers (3C, 8C and 11R only), so you can train year round no matter the weather.
A higher riding position makes it easier for you to see and be seen.
One-Size Fits All
The steering height and pedaling motion are adjustable so riders from 4’10” to 6’10” can find their optimal fit for a comfortable ride.
Great full-body workout
The stand-up position of elliptical bikes engages your core and upper body in addition to your legs.
Gets your heart rate up, burns calories and helps to improve bone density.
Can fit inside most vehicles and on a variety of roof, trunk and hitch racks.
Built to Match Your Stride
Long Stride Length
With a maximum length of 25 inches, you get a full range of motion and balanced muscle activation, making it possible to comfortable tackle any ride.
16”-25” Adjustable Stride
Four adjustable stride-length settings allow you to adjust the bike to your desired range of motion for the optimal riding experience.
Long Foot Platform
An elongated foot platform allows you to adjust foot placement, targeting different muscle groups and letting you fine-tune your position on the fly for comfort and performance.
Putting You in Control
Telescoping Steering Column
A simple quick-release lever makes it fast and easy to adjust the height for any rider or to transport the 3C in a vehicle.
Adjustable bar-end extensions offer greater versatility in adjusting your riding position on the fly for climbing hills, sprinting flats or cruising descents.
Compatibility with a variety of traditional bike and ElliptiGO-specific accessories allows you to deck out your bike with the gear you need to tackle any situation on any ride.
Adjusts to Your Environment
8-speed Internal Hub
The 8 internal gears reduce maintenance and provide a large range of resistance, allowing you to conquer the steepest of hills and sprint at speeds of 25mph+.
Compatibility with many stationary trainers lets you train year-round, either outside on the road or inside when the weather is bad.
I cannot say enough good things about the Elliptigo. It is easy to sustain a high heart rate for numerous hours with no wear and tear on the body. It is a much more efficient workout than a bicycle. Since the rider is standing up and balancing the Elliptigo, it strengthens the core much more than running or bicycling. The Elliptigo is much more fun than bicycling or running. It sure beats riding an elliptical trainer in the gym next to some sweaty, smelly guy.

Injured Runner review
I'm a 50 year old competitive runner that gets frequently sidelined due to achilles/calf injuries. I bought an 8C 2 weeks ago and am absolutely thrilled with it. Although I currently walk with a limp due to injury, I can get on the 8C and ride 50 miles with absolutely no pain. What's even more amazing is that I can get up the next day and do a 25 miler without difficulty. This just shows that an ElliptiGO workout is very low impact.

The best crosstraining workout you will ever get
A well made amazing piece of equipment, best money I ever spent on exercise. I have had my 8C for about 6 weeks. It exceeds everything all the reviews indicated. I am 57 and was looking for something different & easier on my knees. I have done triathlons, P90, Crossfit etc. The eliptigo is hands down the best workout I have ever done.
