Despite the search for innovation, sometimes the staples are that for a reason. Bikes, be it upright, recumbents or class-specific are still popular with club members. That doesn't mean that these old stand-bys aren't still pedaling to the beat of new and innovative technology and design be it in the cardio room or the studio.
The use of high-quality materials and innovative technology is your guarantee of the quality of the Tomahawk cycle. By applying the highest production standards in the industry, this new generation of indoor cycles manufactured specifically for commercial use in clubs and fitness facilities ensures that your cycles successfully meet all of the requirements of a high usage facility.
