Having taken over 4 years to design and develop, the ElliptiGO 8S ($2,199) aims to claim the crown of the first elliptical bicycle. Like most innovative vehicular technology these days, the ElliptiGO 8S has been tested by a select group of bikers and pro athletes in California to ensure it, you know… actually works. The brainchild of co-founders and former Ironman triathletes Bryan Pete and Brent Teal (mechanical engineer and also a competitive marathoner), the ElliptiGO 8S spawned from Pete’s own athletic journey which resulted in an inability to run due to sustained injuries. As you’d expect from a desire to satiate outdoor training, years of engineering to solve the long-distance/low-impact conundrum, and what we imagine to be some hair pulling rationale, the collapsible ElliptiGO 8S mitigates impact-related injuries while providing positive cardiovascular training. The best benefit of all? Avoiding sweaty-ass gyms.
