It's not likely to make you popular with the office cleaners if you get carried away - but the Deskcise Pro from Flexispot promises an "all-in-one ergonomic powerhouse that checks all the boxes for keeping users active and productive throughout the day".
Although the Deskcise Pro likely isn't aimed at those looking for a full-on sweaty workout while they work, it has resistance levels going from 1 to 8 and looks built to last, and is suitable for riders/workers between 5"1 and 6"1.
The pedalling system is 'whisper quiet' to keep colleague moans to a minimum, and the desktop can be adjusted with a slider system quickly and easily. Flexispot say the Deskcise can be assembled in a minute, and it's also on wheels so you can shift it around easily.
Flexispot are not new to the avant-garde desk scene, with numerous stand-up desk solutions already for sale on their website. You can already buy a bike designed to fit under a desk, but this is the first all-in-one 'solution' for those who can't face a day in the office without pedalling.
We haven't seen any pricing info yet, but the Deskcise Pro Kickstarter campaign is set to start on 28th August, and you can also visit the product page on Flexispot's website to sign up for a giveaway competition. We're hoping to get hold of a test unit in early September, so keep an eye out for updates on road.cc next month to find out if we think this is the desk of the future for cyclists...
After cobbling together a few hundred quid during his student days off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story), Jack bought his first road bike at the age of 20 and has been hooked ever since. He joined road.cc in 2017, having previously worked for 220 Triathlon magazine. Jack's preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking (the latter being another long story), and on Sunday afternoons he can often be found on an M5 service station indulging in his favourite post-race meal of 20 chicken nuggets, a sausage roll, caramel shortbread and a large strawberry milkshake.
