Relay Fitness Group is revolutionizing the way people workout with the release of the Evo Fitness Bike, an innovative, indoor cycle designed to capture the natural feeling of a road bike while engaging the core in a full-body workout. Built on the foundation that fitness should be fun, the Evo Fitness Bike is easy to use for individuals of all fitness levels and delivers an authentic cycling experience.
The Evo Fitness Bike utilizes a sway frame that articulates the body movement of a natural pedal, extending the reach of a cycling workout from the lower body to a complete body-pumping exercise. Innovation surfaces in the Orbâ„¢ Gear Drive, a gear drive system that utilizes no belts or chains. This type of planetary gear mechanism has never before been utilized in a fitness application. The internal flywheel and brake mechanism creates a true-to-life biking experience in a durable sleek product with less external moving parts, translating to substantially reduced maintenance needs and costs.
"With the introduction of the Evo Fitness Bike, we're challenging the status quo with an indoor cycle that looks â€“ and feels â€“ entirely different from traditional models,â€ said Mark de Grasse, marketing manager, Relay Fitness Group. â€œLeveraging decades of industry experience, the Relay Fitness Group has identified a way for an indoor cycle to engage the entire body, while creating a bike that is comfortable, chic and, best of all, fun.â€
Additional features of the Evo Fitness Bike include InfiniteFitâ„¢ Handlebars and hybrid seat positions that allow the Evo indoor cycle to work for every type of athlete; from elite cyclists who thrive in the aerodynamic position, to casual exercisers who prefer the upright position. Furthering the Evo Fitness Bike's commitment to all exercisers, a standard crank and pedal system with toe cages and SPD clips invites both cycling-specific shoes and gym shoes. Completing the package is non-slip grip handles, two water bottle holders, and unique upgrades including the Evo Computer and racing-style saddle.
Two consumer versions of the Evo Fitness Bike are currently available for purchase: the Evo i, an introductory model, and the Evo ix. The first full commercial version of the Evo Fitness Bike, the Evo cx, will be available in early September 2012. The Evo Fitness Bike is now available nationwide in more than 50 locations and retails from $1,149 (Evo i) to $1,599 (Evo cx) and can be ordered directly from regional dealers or www.relayfitness.com.
