The introduction of Nautilus exercise bikes marks a high point for the company as it continues to develop affordable home cardio fitness products.
Founded in 1986 with the name Bowflex of America, Nautilus was built from the ground up by Arthur Jones, a pioneer of strength training equipment.
You may already be familiar with their circuit equipment as they were the first company to introduce selectorized weight machines. They also carry a complete line of health and fitness products and accessories, as well as cardio machines such as exercise bikes, treadmills, and ellipticals.
Nautilus manufactures and markets products for both home and commercial use through direct, retail, specialty, and international channels. They have won numerous awards and accolades for their designs and innovations, and Nautilus is the official fitness equipment supplier to pro sports teams such as the Dallas Mavericks and the Phoenix Suns.
Headquartered in Vancouver, Washington, Nautilus, Inc. is a “pure fitness” company with a brand portfolio that includes four leading names: Nautilus, Bowflex, Stairmaster, and Universal.
In 2001, the parent company partnered with Pacific Cycle Inc to share control and distribution rights of the Schwinn® Fitness division.
The line of Nautilus exercise bikes includes three uprights and three recumbents. As value-driven machines, they are popular because of their affordable price, solid frames, exceptional features, and reliable performance. They use magnetic resistance technology to provide smooth, quiet, and consistent workouts.
