Hands up.... who wants
to stop Running?
No one wants to stop running.
Being injured, or permanently out of the game sucks.
Don’t put up with that, do something about it.
Yo, there's an elephant in the room
And it’s name is impact.
When we run we exert 2.5 times our body weight in impact. If you run 50 km per week, and you weigh 70kg then you are absorbing 8.7 million kg of shock impact every week.
Wait for it, that is
452 million kg of shock impact a year
or 1 billion lbs,
or 75,000 African Elephants .
That isn't sustainable for ever.
Say Hello to the future of running training
Our Vision has always been to create a running trainer that really works. One so effective that it allows you to train more but get injured less. Make no mistake, you will work every bit as hard as running, your heart rate will be in the same zones but you will have no jarring impacts. If you want to run for decades, then this is the future.
You can now separate running-fitness-training and running-form-training,
so you can arrive at race day fast, fit AND uninjured.
Sure you need to run to improve running form, but do you need to run every single session to improve running fitness? No. The ability of the Bionic Runner to push your Heart Rate into the same zones as running, and stress the same muscles and tendons, creates physiological changes that improve running specific fitness with out the danger of overextension or impact stresses.
Looks like a bike
...feels like a runner
Unlike bikes or elliptical trainers, the Bionic Runner feels natural to runners. It has a high kick up at the back, and your foot lands under your body. The patented 60:40 swing / stance phase timing will feel familiar to you as a runner. We put this mechanism on a bike, so you can train where you run.
My cadence has increased 6 steps per minute.

Great sports people cross train, for very good reasons.
Why do sports people, from NFL to swimmers cross train?
Because it is effective. And unfortunately, until now, there has been no effective tool for runners. Look around you, we get injured all the time. Plantar Fasciitis, Hammy strains, calf tears, Achilles strains, torn quads, runners knee, hip labral tears, the list goes on. But now you have the option of swapping out some traditional runs for bionic runs and staying healthy for years to come.
A little bit of science
goes a long way
The Bionic Runner is the result of 7 years R&D. It has been refined with feedback from runners in 35 countries. We have been published in the Australian Strength and Conditioning Journal and the Sports Technology Journal.
Unleash New Training Options
Training with a Bionic Runner gives you a bio-mechanical advantage over just running. For the first time, you can split ‘running fitness training’ from ‘running form training’. This opens up entirely new, never before available training possibilities.
What about Fartlek and long runs
Fartlek, long runs, recovery runs and intervals can all be done, in the same heart rate zones as running. So you can pick and choose which session you want to run and which session you want to Bionic Run.
But there’s more....
There are things you can do cross training on a Bionic Runner (BR) that you cannot do just running.
Bionic Bricks allow you to extend your sessions by doing your normal run and then a Bionic Run at the end. It is a perfect way to safely add volume.
Strength and Resistance training is something that is difficult to do running. But now there is a solution. Because the BR has gears you can choose to train in a high gear, that provides maximum resistance and you get an amazing strength workout .
I love my Bionic Runner
“I’ve been running as long as I can remember, it underpins my life. When I do a Bionic Brick I am running 23 to 27 kms outside for a long run, and then jumping on the BR after to extend the mileage without pushing into injury,”
Say good bye to injury
and say Hello to healthy
When you train on the BR you cannot overstride and there is no impact transient. So you take the two biggest causes of injury out of the equation. Take control of your training today, get a Bionic Runner for a better running tomorrow.
