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...
Arriving at road.cc in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of road.cc in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.
