Pedal Motion

Experience a true running stride without the impact of running with a long-stride elliptical motion.


Muscle Activation

Our long-stride models provide an effective full-body workout with balanced leg activation.


Riding Terrain

This bike is suited for riding in areas that feature flat or gently rolling paved roads or paths.


Erik Wippler used his 3C to record some of the fastest century and half-century times ever ridden on an elliptical bike.

Allison Urvan has been a competitive runner for 30 years. She started to feel the break down of her body and needed knee surgery that caused her to be down until she found ElliptiGO. Then a change began and she rediscovered the feeling of running again without the impact.

Ron Critchley prefers training on his 3C in the flat areas where he lives. He’s the oldest rider ever to compete in the World Championships, so he knows a lot about training.

Richard ran more than 35,000 miles before he having both hips replaced, which forced him to give up the sport. He calls ElliptiGO a godsend for letting him keep that running spirit alive.
