The Cybex R Series treadmill is designed to enhance the running experience of the athletes who use it. The new in-workout feature was paired with a sleek design that was worthy of Cybex's first new cardio offering in six years.
Obviously we are not the only ones who believe this. The R-Series treadmill was recently awarded the Good Design Award 2018 in the Sports Leisure category, one of 24 different categories. Every year since 1950, the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and Metropolitan Arts Press Ltd. awarded the Good Design Awards.
The Cybex Design The team worked tirelessly on the R-Series treadmill. New features have been added and aesthetics redefined.
- The intelligent suspension system IS4 was developed for the mechanics of running. The deck is soft on landing, stuck in the middle and rigid when toe-off.
- The Intelligent Interval Training Zone makes it easy for trainers to change their speed with just the touch of a button.
- The 70T touch screen console Includes an integrated TV and improved training experience, while the 50L console option allows for a simplified interaction with a bright LED display.
- Square, geometric posts create a smooth visual transition from the engine cover to the bridge assembly.
- Smooth side footboards make for a clean and inviting look.
The R Series treadmill was part of the first new cardio line developed by Cybex in six years, and we wanted to make sure it was worth the wait.
"The design is an evolution of the previous Cybex treadmill," said Paul Taylor, director of design. "We wanted to give the product a fresh look while retaining some of the most important / known visuals. We've retained the shape of key points of contact, such as the handrails, designed specifically for a comfortable grip when walking. We wanted the design to convey durability and sophistication. The foot platform area includes the edges of the belt. This creates a clean visual solution, protects the belt from edge abrasion and reduces the accumulation of dirt. The surface of the foot platform also inclines four degrees inwards to better accommodate the natural leg and foot angle when descending from the treadmill. "
