SAN DIEGO, CA (December 8, 2015) – ElliptiGO Inc., creator of the world’s first elliptical bicycle, unveiled today the ElliptiGO Arc, the lightest and most affordable bike in the company’s lineup. The Arc features a completely new design built on a sleek aluminum frame. With eight gears and a compact elliptical stride, the Arc enables riders to experience a low-impact workout whether they are cruising comfortably, sprinting or climbing steep hills. The Arc has a MSRP of $1299.
“We set out to develop an outstanding, high-quality bike at an affordable price point so more people could experience the fun and comfort of outdoor elliptical cycling,” said Bryan Pate, CEO of ElliptiGO. “Many people want to get a great cardio workout, but they don’t want to be staring at the walls of a gym or a TV in their basement. The ElliptiGO Arc will give them a fantastic workout experience – outdoors – for less than the cost of a monthly gym membership. And it’s a whole lot more fun.”

Like all ElliptiGO bikes, the Arc has a natural “stand up” riding position that eliminates the neck, back and seat pain associated with conventional cycling, which means riders remain comfortable longer. It also raises the rider’s line of sight, making it easier to see and be seen. The standing position also capitalizes on the rider’s own body weight to burn 33% more calories than riding a traditional road bike, giving a better workout in less time.
The Arc is available now in the United States. ElliptiGO also offers competitive financing options, including 0% interest for up to six months. For more information or to find a dealer, visit www.elliptigo.com.
