Do I need to be an experienced ElliptiGO rider?

You don’t have to be an experienced ElliptiGO rider however you are required to be a confident bike rider to go on our Rides. Our experienced ElliptiGO Instructors will introduce you to the ElliptiGO and get you GOing.

How easy is the ElliptiGO to ride?

Most people who are confident bike riders are comfortable within a few minutes while they adjust to the unique experience. The balance is similar to a recreational bike and it is easy once you get into the rhythm.

I’m unfit and/or haven’t ridden a bike for ages. Will I be able to ride an ElliptiGO?

It doesn’t matter what level of fitness you are, you can GO at a pace that suits you! ElliptiGO Stand Up bikes require about the same amount of balance as traditional bicycles. It’s like riding a bike, once you’ve ridden you’ll never forget how to ride!

ElliptiGO Models

How much does each model weigh?

The 11R weighs 17.9 kg
The 8C weighs 20 kg
The ARC8 weighs 16.8 kg
The MSUB weighs 15.7kg
The RSUB weighs 14.2kg
The SUB weighs 13.0 kg

How wide is the rider stance?

One of the things we noticed when using an elliptical machine was that the drive arms seemed to be spaced further apart than our feet would be when running. We measured several elliptical trainers and they had widths of up to 28cm between the centerline of the drive arms. We designed our bikes to provide the least amount of distance we could between the foot platforms. As a result, the distance between the centerline of each drive arm is about 23cm, and the space between the inside edges of each foot platform is about 9cm.

What ElliptiGO Models are available in Australia?

ElliptiGO Experiences are based in Melbourne, Australia and have the following models and accessories:

  • SUB
  • RSUB
  • MSUB
  • ARC8
  • 8C
  • 11R

All the above models are available for a FREE Test Ride and purchase.

What is the stride length?

ElliptiGO elliptical bikes have a longer stride length than most indoor elliptical trainers, and it is adjustable out to 63.5cm or down to 40.6cm. We have found that the longer stride length makes the riding experience feel more like running.
