It’s called the Randy Ross Stepper and the idea is to take the elliptical machine out of the gym and onto the open road.The Stepper is a fitness bike that takes the stationary elliptical step trainer to the street. It’s a great innovation for anyone who wants a low-impact exercise without the hassle and expense of a gym membership. For the best workout and most power, you rock the handle bars from side-to-side, set your feet at the very end of the wooden planks and push step as much as you want.
However, the Randy Ross Stepper bike is totally seat-less, so the rider is forced to maintain a better posture than you would on an ordinary fitness bike or road bike.

The 8-speed Stepper Hammer model looks pretty tough in matt-black and it proved to be a lot of fun, too. But make no mistake, this isn’t some laid-back beach cruiser, it’s a fierce workout. Virtual hilly terrain is a direct challenge to your thighs and gluts, and a half-hour on this bike, even on flat terrain, will have you sweating. Imagine an elliptical stationary and a road bike all in one.
A total body fitness machine that will give you the workout of your life. You feel rejuvenated and experience a true full body fitness workout every time you take it out.
- The awkward shape and the heft of the frame make it difficult to transport
- Hard to maneuver in tight surroundings.
- Takes time to get comfortable with the bike, especially with starting and stopping.
Priced at $799, this bike isn’t cheap. But it does look cool and provides a serious low-impact workout outdoors.
