The Align-Pilates A8-Pro Pilates Reformer is the updated version of the previous flagship commercial Pilates reformer, the A2. The A8-Pro has a completely new runner profile and runs on 8 PU wheels. This new platform offers a quieter ride, improved handling of cross loading forces, and reduced maintenance.
The A8-Pro features the patent pending Rapid Change (RC) spring bar, together with a host of other subtle improvements that make the A8-Pro the new star in the Align-Pilates line-up. The Rapid Change (RC) spring bar radically alters the ease and speed of adjusting your reformer, which is particularly beneficial in the group class environment where the A8-Pro excels. The spring bar can be adjusted with springs attached, with one hand in a single action saving up to 12 additional actions compared with most standard reformers.
The A8-Pro offers refined performance, extensive adjustability, a luxurious oversize carriage, and the longest travel of any standard Pilates reformer on the market. Now in its fourth generation, the A8-Pro is the result of over eight years of development. The A8-Pro can be built with a choice of 3 interchangeable leg heights, 11" low legs (28cm), 16.5" standard legs (42cm), or 25" rehab legs (64cm) - making the A8-Pro a truly future proof and versatile investment. It has been designed for both studio, rehab, and private use with the innovative design offering a host of easy adjustments to provide complete flexibility in use.
