The 3C joins the original ElliptiGO elliptical bicycle, the 8S, in the company’s current product line for consumers.

“We created the 3C to deliver a high-performance workout experience with less impact by combining the most popular cardio exercises-running, cycling and the elliptical trainer-into one incredibly fun to use product,” said Bryan Pate, co-founder and co-president, ElliptiGO.

“The riding experience is similar to that of our original 8S elliptical bike but at a lower price point, allowing us to reach more people with this new form of exercise. We are excited to continue growing the elliptical bicycle category as well as the community of ElliptiGO riders and enthusiasts.”

“We were able to achieve this cost reduction without sacrificing a high-performance workout experience by tailoring the riding experience for flatter areas. As a result, the 3C is an accommodating elliptical bicycle that can support the needs of a wide range of users, from casual exercisers to elite athletes.” [ElliptiGO via Gizmodo]
