Awards: EID First Place Best Pressure Formed Part
Project Description: Fitness & Recreation

Design Team: Cesaroni Design & Precor USA

 This is an award winning, recumbent, stationary exercise bike design for the commercial fitness industry. The client's objective was to reduce tooling costs for the new fitness product.

The development team incorporated identical main covers on this new recumbent cycle product design from the client's existing upright bike in order to reduce tooling costs. This design strategy leveraged 90% of the total tooling costs, and established a family look for the client's current fitness line.

We were careful to balance the aesthetics between the two products. The strong diagonal line created by the unique cantilevered seat rail and sculpted side panels semantically represents forward motion, much like a motorcycle shroud. The bold intersection of the front support tube and main body gives the new fitness product a solid look and feel.

Comfort is improved through the ergonomic development of the seat pads that incorporate soft recesses to relieve pressure on the spine and pelvic bone.

This recumbent cycle product design is made for ease of assembly. Design components can be removed through a system of socket head cap screws. Removing only one of the side covers exposes all of the internal mechanisms for service.

This fitness product design received an EID award and was honored at the SPE Thermoforming Conference with Best Pressure Formed Part for the recumbent cycle shroud design.
