The defining feature that sets the xRide recumbent elliptical apart from recumbent bikes is Octane’s 16" PowerStroke technology. PowerStroke allows for optimal leg extension and power drive, delivering more muscle engagement.
University studies show that xRide users demonstrate up to 343% more activity in their glutes, produce up to 22% more mechanical power and burn up to 23% more calories than when using a recumbent bike at the same exertion level.
The xR4 is designed to provide maximum comfort while also yielding an unmatched workout. To accomplish this, the cushioned seat is set at a 45-degree angle to help open the hip flexors and torso for more comfort and less stress on the lower back.
For optimum fit for any size user, the xR4 has 15 seat height positions and 5 seat tilt settings. These multiple seat height and tilt options also enable exercisers to utilize different leverage points for targeted muscular endurance conditioning.
Built on a solid, space-efficient platform, the xR4 is significantly shorter and more narrow than other premium ellipticals or recumbent bikes, and it blends seamlessly into any room at home.
The platform doubles as a convenient step-through area, making it safe and easy for any user to get on and off the recumbent elliptical.
Designed with features exclusive to Octane Fitness products, the workout experience on the xR4 is supremely comfortable and effective.
Oversized pedals with soft grip texture provide a variety of foot placements to target muscle groups as you pedal forward or backward. The moving handlebars engage the upper body for greater muscle engagement and caloric expenditure.
Octane’s trademark Workout Boosters, including X-Mode, Leg Press and Chest Press, add cross training with various commands every few minutes to keep the heart pumping and muscles pushing.
These add variety, motivation and productive intervals. And greater intensity leads to better results and efficient, effective workouts that keep members coming back again and again.
