What do you do when you really want to work out using an elliptical-style machine but don’t want to be stuck within the same four walls all the time? That’s the dilemma ElliptiGO tackled when they first started producing exercise equipment. They developed and manufactured the highly successful and first of its kind outdoor elliptical bike.
This is a great way to get active and will provide you with a more intense workout than you may get from a traditional bike. It’s also a lot of fun. One of their top products is the revolutionary ElliptiGO Sub, the first seatless, stand-up elliptical bike. Which takes the whole experience of using one of their machines to a whole new level. If you thought they couldn’t improve on something that was an already ingenious product, think again. The RSub elliptical bike is arguably the best of its kind, and certainly the most roadworthy. Based on the design of road bikes, as you will see, if you are looking for a seriously exciting, but safe way to ride around, this is the answer.
It’s fair to say that ElliptiGO are a very young company, but over the course of their short lifespan, they have what could best be described as meteoric success. People all around the world love their elliptical bikes. It’s not just the build quality or how they look, though these features are second-to-none, but it’s the safety, performance and comfort features that the company insists are in each model they produce.
Features like the oversized and comfortable pedals so you always feel safe, stable and secure standing up and pedaling on a bike like the RSub. Or the generous and efficient gear system. As you will see as we delve deeper and look at their features in greater detail there is a lot to give you confidence that you will have an experience like no other if you choose the ElliptiGO RSub.
Full-Size Roadworthy 700c Tires
Unlike some other elliptical bike models, and even most from ElliptiGO, the ElliptiGO RSub comes complete with full-size, roadworthy 700 tires. This makes the equipment feel like an actual bike and therefore, safer. The tires being so big allows you to cover more ground quicker and with better grip too. If you are going to ride on main roads and other similar terrains, we would suggest this bike as our recommendation.
8-Speed Gears and Disc Brakes
It is important to feel in control when you are riding on any kind of bike. This becomes even more crucial though, when you are on a stand-up elliptical. With the ElliptiGO RSub you get the 8=speed gear system the company have been known to provide with their exercise equipment. While 8 is not the most offered, it does provide you with enough variety to not only ensure you can tackle the different ascents and descents you face confidently but can help to increase the intensity of your workout as necessary.
Further to the control offered by the gears, you also get high quality disc-style brakes. This means you will be able to stop the bike whenever you need to, regardless of the conditions. This is must-have for any kind of bike, not least of all a stand-up elliptical-trainer-style bike.
Can Accommodate all Heights
When you are choosing a conventional outdoor bike, you need to take your height into consideration. This can often mean that you need to spend more or invest in a model you were not as interested in, so that you have one that fits your size. With the ElliptiGO RSub, like most others produced by the company, this is not an issue. It comes with a fully adjustable steering column that make it possible for adults of most heights to enjoy this tool.
- 700c full-size road bike tires
- Disc brakes for more control and effective stopping power
- Adjustable steering column
- Bit more expensive than other models, though this is understandable given the tires
