Elliptical bikes, the ride to greatness!
One of the most outstanding features of Elliptical bikes is that the equipment can combine low-impact exercise with the freedom of an outdoor workout. They are a great relief source for people who experience joint aches and pains. Using these bikes helps them maintain good posture. Although cycling is good, you spend most of your workout session in a seated position. This will make your hip area stiff, tight, and weak.
While most workout bikes will assist you in keeping fit and healthy, they fail to address the above-mentioned challenges. This article will highlight why these bikes are the best workout equipment to help you achieve low-impact, high-performance workouts.
Designed for safety
So far, we have had no incidents when using the bike. Looking at how the bike is designed, you can work out while maintaining a good posture. It also ensures that your feet are firm on the platform and exposes your joints to low impact.
The design of the bikes also makes them safe for people experiencing back aches and other joint aches. This is because, unlike most workout bikes, they allow you to exercise while sitting down. Although the impact on your joints is minimal, you get the best performance possible. This means you do not require a lot of exercises to burn calories.
They also come with different adjustable resistance levels. This makes it a good workout bike for overweight people who are not used to strenuous exercise.
Types of bikes
The bike comes in several variants. Each of these has its pros and cons, as highlighted below.
1. The Stand-up bike
This EliptiGo bike allows you to experience the cycling effect and remain standing all through. It comes with eight adjustable resistance levels and a speed of 12mph. For more experienced people, it can get to a speed of 20mph.
2. ElliptiGo Arc
This compact bike comes in three models; Arc 3, 8, and 24, each with different resistant levels that depend on your model and the terrain. Arc 3 and 8 are mostly for flat terrains, while 8 and 24 are for any terrain, including hilly terrains. This EliptiGo bike also comes with a speed of 12mphs but can get to 20mphs.
3. ElliptiGo 8C
The ElliptiGO 8C elliptical bike is the world’s most popular elliptical bike that combines performance and price. You’ll feel like you’re “running on air.” It has eight gears capable of tackling tough climbs; this fabulous model suits professional athletes and recreational riders. Whether your goal is to lose weight, cross-train, or get moving, the ElliptiGO 8C delivers the best bang for your buck. Come to FullScopes Sports, located in Smyrna, GA, and test ride one today.
4. ElliptiGo 3C
This long-stride bike gives you both an elliptical and running experience. It comes in three different models; 3C, 8C, and 11R, which have similar specs to the Arc. However, it has a speed of 15mphs and can get to 23mphs.
5. ElliptiGo RSUB
The slick and stylish Road Stand-Up ElliptiGO RSUB is the premier road product in the SUB lineup and possibly the fastest stand-up elliptical bike on the road today. Full-size 700c tires and disc brakes provide a secure, steady, and powerful ride that gives you the confidence to cruise casually or compete. Regardless, you’ll ride in comfort and burn calories while reinventing life on two wheels!

6. Street rider
The street rider bike can either be used for an outdoor workout or become an in-home bike. It has three wheels and comes in either three or seven-speed. It mostly gets to 15mph but can also get to 20mph. The 3i model has three gears (Easy, medium, and hard), while the 7i has seven gears for both flat and steep hill terrains. You can easily fold it; hence it is portable.
7. Half bike
The Half bike is quite interesting since it offers a learning experience for gaining balance and riding it. It comes with 3 gears and can tackle long distances and hilly terrains only, but it requires a fit rider. The bike comes with a video guide on how to assemble it.
Benefits of ElliptiGo Bike
The bike helps conserve the environment as it only requires the rider’s energy. It does not use electricity or batteries. At the end of the workout, the rider loses calories, and the environment is safe. You get a win-win situation.
Exercise without hurting joints
Most workout routines hurt your muscles or joints, which may lead to other health complications. For instance, running gives you joint aches because you repeatedly pound your feet on a hard surface. Equally, when you cycle, you may cause your hip flexors to feel tight and weak. This is not the case with an Elliptical bike since your feet are always firmly supported on the platform without applying pressure on your joints.
This makes it easy for you to use the equipment for indoor and outdoor workouts. A good example is the street rider which gives you a good roll in the streets and can also serve you well indoors. It is easily foldable for storage and hauling.
Diversity in exercises
They provide the possibility of incorporating different workout routines using one piece of equipment. Depending on your body’s needs, you can either cycle, do cardio, or build up muscles.
Adjustment of different levels
The bike, across all models, can be adjusted to different resistance levels. This allows you to choose your resistance level, depending on your tolerance and needs. This feature also allows for use across different age groups and fitness levels.
Increase your aerobic capacity.
The bike’s exercises will increase your heart rate. This improves your ability to engage in activities over a long period of time without getting tired. Over time, you get to build tolerance for other strenuous body exercises.
Since the equipment does not use external energy sources other than the force from your feet to propel it, you get to burn many calories. It, therefore, helps maintain body weight and supports losing weight. Weight is also lost uniformly since all the body parts are involved.
Elliptical bikes are a good choice for anyone looking for a unique and affordable bike. With these bikes, you can turn heads around the streets while you achieve your workout needs. Also, safety considerations prevent any injuries and joint aches. Depending on the bike you choose, you also enjoy the luxury of either exercising outside or indoors. With different speeds and resistance levels, elliptical bikes are the best equipment for someone who wants to achieve different goals without necessarily having several workout equipment.
