on first glance, the stepwing fitness bike looks a little like a piece of equipment you might find in your gym. yet founder peter dewbery has found a way to bring the step machine to the streets, designing a range of cool commuters that have all the benefits of a bicycle, yet don’t put pressure on your joints that could lead to injury. much like its gym-bound counterpart, stepwing provides a natural stepping action whilst protecting your body from impact. the neat bike promises to turn heads and tone legs, combining your workout and commute for an easier ride.

the stepwing bikes make sure that there is no pressure placed on your wrists, hips, back, neck and bum–in turn allowing for a comfortable and effective cardiovascular workout that wont damage your body. by bringing gym-grade technology to the streets, the bikes make for a commute which not only engages your core, but tones your quads, glutes, hamstrings and calf muscles. the step bikes come in three models, with the smaller galaxy 1 light, foldable, and designed for shorter city commutes. the large titan 1 and titan 3 bikes offer higher speeds, along with the ability to tackle touch ground and slopes.

 

 

‘the way people exercise and travel around cities and towns has changed in recent years,’ explains the founder of stepwing, peter dewbery. ‘folding bikes are too expensive, uncomfortable and complicated for many people. stepwing offers a much more effective workout, that gets you from A to B, without back discomfort, sore wrists or a pain in the backside.’
