With an all new 8 PU wheel carriage system for the quietest and lowest maintenance ride available, the C8-Pro is the ultimate C-Series reformer. The C8-Pro features Align-Pilates' patented Rapid Change (RC) spring bar for the quickest and easiest adjustment available. The Rapid Change (RC) spring bar of the C8-Pro radically changes the ease and speed of adjusting your reformer, which is of particular benefit when used in a group class environment, where the C8-Pro excels. Spring bars can be attached to a spring bar with one hand for one-hand adjustment. This saves up to 12 extra actions compared to standard reformers.

Many Pilates professionals select their reformer based on the ride characteristics, and the most important aspects of that are the number and type of wheels. There is a connection between the number of wheels and the resistance of the carriage, the sound the machine makes, the handling of crossloading, and the level of maintenance required for optimal performance. C8 uses eight 'roller blade style' wheels, which are designed to offer a quieter, softer ride with greater rolling resistance compared to the harder nylon wheels used in a 4-wheel system like the C2-Pro RC, where the wheels run in matched aluminum profiles. There is no better or worse machine because it is a matter of preference for the user, though for many this will be a determining factor in which machine they buy. It is likely that many will prefer the ride style they are more familiar with or have trained on.

In addition to being stackable, the C8-Pro can be freestanding either with its optional freestanding feet or with leg extensions, which raises the bed height from 26cm to 44cm. It is the most versatile reformer in its class, and it offers unparalleled value for money. As with previous C-Series reformers, it accepts either a Full or Half Cadillac Frame. Moreover, the C8-Pro Reformer shares all its accessories with its predecessor, the C2-Pro RC Reformer, making it compatible with earlier C-Series machines.

In this version of the C8-Pro reformer, Leg Extensions are included, making it ideal for those who prefer to raise the bed to 44 cm. With these leg extensions, the C8-Pro Reformer can also free stand, which is helpful in multi-function Pilates studios where you need to stand the reformer up out of the way to use the floor space. Warning when standing your reformer:Your reformer should only be stood up in places where there is no risk of it being knocked over by other activities in the same room. Never stand a reformer in a room that can be accessed by children. The reformer must only be stood up indoors on firm, flat surfaces. All our commercial reformers are light commercial warrantied at 27.5 hours per week. The C8-Pro is suitable for users 145cm - 193cm (4’10” - 6’4”), max. user weight:150kg.
