According to this tweet ElliptiGO is coming out with a new version of its bike. It looks like it is still under wraps, but there are some clues in the photo that lets you know this is not the same ElliptiGO model that is sold today. I noticed right away that it doesn't seem to have the drive arms protruding above and beyond the rear wheel.
I am no expert on what ElliptiGO is going to unveil, but I have heard rumors and have had discussions and my guess is that it will have a lower price point by having not as long a wheelbase and not as long a stride (or even the same motion), so it will have slower speeds. Maybe it will be a beginner or introductory machine for those who think an ElliptiGO is too expensive (and who may move up at a later time to the current models). Maybe it will be more a training or supplementary machine for those who won't GO as many miles, but could use one when injured or to cross train without so much of a commitment . I am very excited to see this as many people balk at purchasing an ElliptiGO due to its price. A lot of the cost of an ElliptiGO does come from its quality components and that long wheelbase is something that, I am told, adds greatly to the cost of the machine. It will he interesting to see what this is when it is revealed. If you want to know more, you can sign up here with ElliptiGO to be notified. It does say you have to wait a few more days, so it could be soon!
The new ElliptiGO has been unveiled. See my post for more information here:
One thing I noticed the other day is that Amazon now sells the EllitpiGO. I would rather GO through a dealer, but it is good place to read reviews. The Arc is not on Amazon.
