Clmbr’s home climbing machine offers a peloton-like experience for those who want to practice going up and down instead of walking forward. The company today unveils its new model, the Clmbr O2, with a number of hardware refinements for increased stability. But it’s the new service, Clmbr Vision, that will be the most interesting to explore when it makes its debut. The company says Vision will offer “live, dynamic coaching and feedback [users] Exercise.”
Unfortunately, Vision isn’t coming until early 2023, but users can enjoy many of the tweaks that the new and improved O2 will offer. These include a simplified center console that improves the machine’s overall strength, and new gears and brakes that offer a wider range of resistance options. These changes will also, as promised, improve the machine’s lifespan (important given the amount of time you’ll be spending messing around with it). Not to mention an improved display that’s thinner and offers “sharper graphics” and better responsiveness, plus the tech needed to offer vision.
Unfortunately, there’s no word on when users will be able to benefit from the new live coaching, but the price won’t change. The O2 will set you back $2,799, much like the current model (except like now when it’s on sale). However, early risers who put their money down between September 1 and October 31 can snag the machine for $2,295, with shipping expected to begin in December.
