The RealRyder® ABF8 vision began 15 years ago when competitive cyclist and RealRyder International® Co-founder

Colin Irving sought to improve the performance of the stationary bike by simulating the feel of the real bike experien​ce. 


About RealRyder

In the 1980's, came the stationary bike - big, one-dimensional, and boring. Then came the indoor cycling bike.   It was designed to mimic a real outdoor bike, and it certainly was an improvement: Its seat, pedals, and relatively adjustable cockpit, all were designed to better replicate a real road bike. 

​Of course it remained essentially a stationary bike - a rigid, locked-down pedaling machine.  And its basic design still hasn't changed. Even after twenty years, the only real improvements have been slight improvements to adjustability and durability.

But now indoor cycling technology has taken an evolutionary leap. That's because the RealRyder® ABF8 has a unique, articulating frame that allows it to steer, lean, and feel like an actual road bike.  And that allows the RealRyder® ABF8 Stationary Bike to simulate the experience and the benefits of riding a bike out in the real world. Not just the pedaling; the steering, the leaning, the balancing, the mental involvement, and the emotional excitement.

The result is a 5-in-1 workout for the whole body - not simply legs and cardio, but also upper body, core muscle groups, and balance. Compared to the RealRyder ABF8, other indoor bikes just aren't working out.

The Benefits

Until now, the dynamic of an indoor cycling class has essentially been limited to pedaling faster or slower.  The RealRyder® ABF8 adds a whole new range of motions that keep the mind more engaged and the body more active.

That's because the RealRyder® ABF8 has a unique, articulating frame that allows it to steer, turn, and feel like a road bike.  That side-to-side motion requires constant shifts of balance - continuous adjustments and corrections that correspond to a rider's movements on the road while encountering wind shifts, obstacles, and banked and curving surfaces. 

The result is a unique 5-in-1 workout that improves not just legs and cardio, but also upper body and core muscles groups.  What's more, the RealRyder® challenges - and improves - the rider's sense of balance.

More kinds of movement.    More muscles used. ​  More calories burned.

The RealRyder® ABF8 provides a range of full-body exercise benefits that simply can't be approached by conventional indoor bikes.
