New for 2023, the Align-Pilates C8-S from Great Britain is now available in the United States. Whereas the bestselling C8-Pro was optimised for maximum performance, adaptability, and ease of maintenance, the C8-S seeks to repackage this proven design into a sleeker and more stylish machine. The C8-S focuses on clean flowing lines achieved by bringing the standing platform and rope risers within the frame and simplifying the legs. The C8-S is particularly fitting for the group reformer studio and the style-oriented home studio.
A tower upgrade with mat insert is available for this model. Choose your essential accessories from the Align C-model platform extender, gondola pole, pro sitting box, and C-series jump board by scrolling down to the "Frequently Bought Together" section. Contact our Pilates Equipment Experts for information.
The C8-S is operationally almost exactly the same as the C8-Pro, using the same carriage, runner profile, running gear and adjustment systems so you can expect the same smooth and silent user experience. For owners of existing C-Series the C8-S also uses the same Jump Board, Mat Inserts, and Platform Extender. The C8-S comes in a standard height of 10" / 26cm which can be raised to studio height of 16" / 42cm with its optional almost seamless leg extensions.
In order to preserve the clean look, the C8-S frame and legs are not pre-drilled to take a Half Cadillac frame like the C8-Pro. For those wishing to use a Half Cadillac, a clamp style Half Cadillac Bracket is available, or alternatively the reformer can be used with our Wall Mounted Half Cadillac, which actually offers a superior experience as there will be no clanking Half Cadillac springs (or need to remove these) when using the Jump Board. In a studio setting this Wall Mounted Half Cadillac also means that the reformer and Half Cadillac can be separated to create two workstations, rather than just having the one.
The differences between the C8-S and the C8-Pro are: white frame, runners and legs; the stainless steel rope risers, 0.5" / 1.5 cm less carriage travel (41 inches / 105 cm); very similar but fractionally different footbar positions; 0.5" / 1.5 cm narrower standing platform, different leg extensions and the inability to have a Full Cadillac option. On the plus side it looks great and functions beautifully!
