Spring 2020 sees the arrival of our new flagship C Series reformer, the Align-Pilates C8-Pro. The C8-Pro is the ultimate C Series reformer, featuring an oversize aluminium profile & foot bar and all new 8 PU wheel carriage system for the quietest and lowest maintenance ride available. Like all 2020 Align-Pilates commercial reformers the C8-Pro features our new patent pending Rapid change (RC) spring bar for the easiest and quickest adjustment on the market.
Many Pilates professionals choose their reformer based on the ride characteristics and the biggest determinant of that is the number and type of wheels. The number & material of the wheels determine the resistance of the carriage, the sound the machine makes, the handling of cross loading and the amount of maintenance required for optimal performance. The C8 uses 8 'roller blade style' wheels are designed to give a quieter and softer ride with slightly greater rolling resistance when compared to the more ice glide ride offered by the harder nylon wheels used in a 4 wheel system like on the C2-Pro RC, where the wheels run in a matched aluminium profile. Which is better is a matter of preference for the user/s, though for many this will be a key determinant of which machine they buy and chances are; many will prefer the ride style they are more familiar with or, trained on!
The C8-Pro's rapid change spring bar radically alters the ease and speed of adjusting your reformer, which is particularly beneficial for those running group classes:where the C8-Pro really excels. The spring bar can be adjusted with the springs attached, with one hand in a single action, saving up to 12 additional actions when compared with most standard spring bars! See how the Rapid Change spring bar works in this video.
The C8-Pro is stackable and can free-stand, either with the optional new free standing feet or, if leg extensions are fitted, which raise the bed height to 42cm versus the 26cm bed height of the standard machine. Like earlier Pro models in the C series, this reformer can accept either a Full or, a Half Cadillac frame making it the most versatile reformer in its class, whilst offering fantastic value for money.
The C8-Pro reformer shares all the accessories such as mat convertor, standing platform, half Cadillac as the C2-Pro RC and earlier C series reformers, meaning it sits perfectly alongside other C series machines. Furthermore many components from the C8 Pro, such as the half Cadillac frame are also cross-compatible with A Series machines, giving you additional possibilities and flexibility as your studio grows.
Please note the Gondola Pole is not included and shown for demo purposes only.
The Align-Pilates C8-Pro reformer is compatible with the following accessories
The C8 Pro is compatible with the accessories from all the earlier C Series accessories e.g. the mattress insert, standing platform, leg extensions, half and full Cadillac frames. This makes using C8 Pro in the same studio asother C series reformers a breeze and levers on any earlier investments in the series. Furthermore, for those already invested in earlier C Series machines, there is a very high percentage of backward compatibility for spare parts, as this is one of the cornerstones of Align-Pilates’ design principles
