Ciclotte – The Best Exercise Bike. Ever?

I say, the penny farthing has come a long way!


Joking aside, Have you ever seen a more beautiful piece of gym equipment? The Ciclotte is, naturally, Italian designed. Luca Schieppati, one of Milan`s leading designers has created a rare thing – An exercise bike that looks sensational. I`m going to enjoy this exercise bike review.

Ciclotte breaks the mould of exercise design, – which has always related to the functional aspects – in order to target advanced users, dynamic fitness enthusiasts and those that appreciate the art of design; to exercise in style. The best exercise bike ever is being launched at the end of September.

Made with high quality materials including carbon, steel and glass fibres, alongside a unique technology system, Ciclotte represents a new solution for the luxury fitness world; gym-standard training on a machine light enough (121lb) to be moved around the house or office, and stylish enough to put on display!

From a technical point of view, Ciclotte has been designed to reproduce the dynamics and performance of road cycling and is ideal for high intensity aerobic workouts such as spinning. It is also the first exercise bike to use an epicycloid system. This works by generating a concentrated magnetic field using a copper ring which is rotated at a high speed in front of five magnets, – which can be moved back or forwards via the touch screen display to control the strength – producing a high performance effective cycling resistance system. This has to be one of the best exercise equipment available.

The magnetic resistance really does represent a truer version of real cycling. On the techie side, the touch screen enables a simplicity that means the user is instantly aware of how to work this piece of modern art.

An exercise bike! Modern Art?


You can`t disagree though, can you? This is a most splendid addition to any home gym. However, it looks so good, you will probably keep it in the lounge!

This stunning bike has an RRP of £6,800 – available in Carbon, Silver and Purple – and will be launched in the UK at the 100% Design Show from 23-26 September 2010 at Earls Court, London.
