I’m selling my Octane Fitness XR6 XRide seated elliptical, a very high-end recumbent exercise machine. It has received extremely little use, sadly, so is in like-new condition. It’s incredibly well built. The oversized pedals are easy to put your feet into (unlike the stirrups of an exercise bike) and rotate super smoothly in a wide ellipse. The grippy upright arms, which are designed so that you can grab them in a way that’s most comfortable to you, let you exercise your upper body at the same time, much like rowing would do.
It’s so much easier to exercise in the seated position vs. the standing ellipticals you see in gyms. The large seat is super comfortable, unlike an exercycle’s bike-size seat. (If you’ve ever used the latter, you know what it does to your posterior.) Yet the XR6’s design gives your “glutes” a workout too. The height of the seat is adjustable in 20 different increments; there are five different angle settings for the seat. All the machine’s positioning controls allow you to set it to exactly suit your individual size and to maximize comfort.
The machine’s big control panel has buttons and LEDs that let you set all sorts of different routines and track your progress, as well as controlling the resistance of the pedals/arms in small increments. This is partly a function of your weight, which you enter into the panel. You can set programs to emphasize leg presses or chest presses, or to swap them back and forth. It has “quick start” and “cool down” features, and much more.
Since Patch only allows one photo here, I’m posting a stock image, since the machine is now in a cluttered room and hard to get clear photos of. I took some, though, and would be happy to send them to you if you’re interested. I’m asking $2250 for the machine, which is $1250 less than it sells for new ($3500). It’s also currently out of stock, as are many of the Octane machines. My XR6 is basically like a floor model in terms of usage. Here’s a link to the Octane website, and please write with any questions.
