Octane Fitness LLC released the xRide seated elliptical to broaden exercise choices for everyone from beginners to elite athletes. The xRide delivers the benefits of a standing elliptical — total-body, low-impact cardiovascular workouts — from a comfortable seated position. Its elliptical power stroke provides a greater range of motion and increased glute activity than that experienced on recumbent bikes. Pedaling forward or in reverse adds variety and different muscle activity, and the upper body is engaged fully with the ergonomically designed, proprietary MultiGrip handlebars.
