What if you could run 20 miles per day and never be sidelined by injuries - or enjoy low-impact outdoor exercise without sitting on a bike seat for hours at a time?
The ElliptiGO 8C has the versatility to give you the exercise experience you're looking for, whether you are a competitive athlete looking to improve your cardiovascular fitness or someone who wants to enjoy comfortable and fun outdoor exercise. The 8C is our most popular model and the elliptical cycle with the best balance of performance and cost. It's a great tool for marathon training programs, for staying fit while rehabbing an IT band, stress fracture, or other injury, or for taking in the sights while you get your exercise.
The Elliptigo 8C is fun, effective, and keeps me on the road. Most importantly, my 8C has enabled me to get the cardio workout I need without aggravating old injuries. I can't recommend it highly enough.
I wish I could tell you about the great time I have riding my Elliptigo up hills, over bridges, on flat through parks BUT I continually get Stopped, lol... "What is that?", "Where did you get it from?", "I want one!!" I love my Elliptigo 8C
super Satisfied John C.
As a former runner frustrated by so many leg injuries as I get older I was intrigued but skeptical about the GO. Now, having ridden one for awhile I can say that is is a blast to ride, much better than cycling, and is a high quality product. I'm convinced that this will be a huge sport within a few years.
Oh yea Chris K.
Completed my first ride on my new 8c. My son asked me how it went and I replied, just what it should be-hard and awesome. Runners high without the strain on my back and knees. Why did I wait so long to buy this bike?!,
very positive experience Mark I.
My personal experience with my eliptigo 8c has been very positive. The eliptigo gives a workout very comparable to a stationary elliptical machine. i was somewhat surprised as the eliptigo involves some coasting, but avg. HRs don't lie and mine is about the same on both. The eliptigo is far superior to cycling and swimming for me. Swimming is mostly an upper body workout and oh so boring. Avid cyclists will disagree but for me the seat and hunched over position are not enjoyable and to get comparable exercise you must be willing to go very fast (really not practical on a greenway with lots of other people). The eliptigo is quite easy to get the hang of riding. Toe clips help. In short I love my eliptigo 8c and would not be surprised to see some of my friends ordering theirs soon. GREAT PRODUCT.
Elliptigo 8C Alan S.
I am a current half marathon and 5k runner and i have been through many knee and hip injuries. I am currently recovering from a knee injury and have not been able to run for over 10 months. I bought the elliptigo 8C and i can ride it pain free. This is the best cross training tool for all runners and best recovery tool for injured runners. I live in New Hampshire where there are many hills to climb where ever i go. This elliptigo climbs the very steep half mile hills around me easily and it puts no added pressure on my knees. The elliptigo 8C was definitely worth the money!!!
Ex-cyclist total health transformation Bill P.
I've never been a runner, but I used to enjoy cycling - mostly commuting to work in UK. 6 years ago got L4/L5 disc issues which meant I moved to a recumbent bike. Good for my leg muscles but not much else. When I moved to USA I saw the ElliptiGO and thought that would be good way to cycle without stressing my back. Now I commute and ride over 100 miles a week. I've lost 30lbs since I started a year ago and my health (BP etc) has come way down. The ElliptiGO also works my core muscles too - so with the cardiovascular exercise its a total body workout!. The 8C has been great - I even qualified for the ElliptiGO World Championships last year and ended up racing it up Mt Palomar. Thoroughly recommend ElliptiGOs to anyone wanting to get out and get fit and have fun at the same time :)
Beyond My Expectations David C.
I love my Elliptigo 8C. With 1940 miles logged since June last year, it has been used more than any other piece of exercise equipment I have ever owned. Unlike other equipment, my usage and enthusiasm is increasing over time. I cannot say enough about the great service Elliptigo provides. Both the Elliptigo and the service I have received from Elliptigo have far exceeded the high expectations I had when I purchased my "Go."
Ready to sell my other bikes Tom D.
We are in our late 50s and love the Elliptigos. Here is what is so cool. No more pain in the butt. No more lycra or special shoes. I ride in casual shoes and whatever I have on. I do try to wear some type of hi-vis top for safety and I always wear a helmet. Standing on an Elliptigo is better for touring because you are higher and if you stop you are pretty much in your street clothes. After every ride we feel nicely used, no impact on joints and nothing hurts. In my opinion riding the Elliptigo is more physical exertion than riding a bike but not as strenuous as running. If you want a great workout pedal faster and if you are into touring that day slow it down. You can make your ride suit your goal and enjoy. Did I mention no butt pain? I know I did but it’s worth saying again. I am ready to sell my other bikes, I don’t need or want them anymore. Elliptigo or nothing for me.
GO for the best Ken C.
I had torn a meniscus while playing tennis and after the surgery the doctor said I could play tennis but not jog any more. My wife takes water aerobics and her teacher has a GO that he rides around 60 miles a day instead of driving. When I saw his GO I had to try it and rented one for a week. Then I HAD to buy one! Is there any way I can give this review 10 stars instead of 5?
Saved my knees! Eric K.
I have been riding an 8 speed Elliptigo for 2 years now (8s, precursor to the 8c) and it has saved my knees. I am 53 and was addicted to running every day (including a ten year streak without a day less than 5 miles), and had chronic knee pain. Since switching my hard workouts to the Elliptigo, my knees are completely better. I believe this is not only due to the low impact, but the fact that the Elliptigo maintains ideal foot separation and body posture. Recently, I was able to ride in comfort for 9 hours proudly completing my first century!
