The ElliptiGO 3C, 8C and 11R models are outdoor elliptical cycles used by adults for exercise. It is a scooter-like device that combines an elliptical trainer with a bicycle. The ElliptiGO cycles have an aluminum frame, drive arms, two 20” spoked-wheels, an internally geared hub, front and rear brakes and adjustable-height steering column. All cycles have the word “ElliptiGO” along the outside of the frame.  The 3C and 8C model cycles have a “C-Series” decal towards the rear of the frame and aluminum drive arms. The recalled 11R cycles are matte black with white markings and the “11R” decal is found towards the rear of the frame.  The serial numbers on all models are located on the frame in front of the back wheel near where the kickstand attaches to the frame.  Serial number ranges for the recalled 3C and 8C models are from 11-010-001 through 13-028-102, and for the 11R model from 12-003-069 through 12-020-035.
