The Align-Pilates A8-Pro Pilates reformer is brand new for 2020 and is the updated version of our flagship commercial Pilates reformer, the A2. The A8-Pro has a completely new runner profile and runs on 8 PU wheels (rather than 4 nylon wheels of the preceding A2 models), this new platform offers a quieter ride, improved handling of cross loading forces and reduced maintenance. The A8-Pro also features our new patent pending Rapid Change spring bar for the fastest spring bar adjustment on the market and a host of other subtle improvements, to make the A8-Pro the new star in the Align-Pilates lineup!
Offering refined performance, extensive adjustability, a luxurious oversize carriage and the longest travel of any standard Pilates reformer on the market! Now in it’s fourth generation the A8-Pro is the result of over eight years of development. This reformer bundle comes with the low leg height of 28cm, but there is a choice of 3 interchangeable leg heights, the others being: rehab leg (64cm) and standard legs (42cm), making the A8-Pro a truly future proof and versatile investment. The A8-Pro has been designed for both studio, rehab and private use, with the innovative design offering a host of easy adjustments to provide complete flexibility in use. The A8-Pro Pilates reformer can be stacked (though it is heavy) and has wheels for easy movement.
Though the A8-Pro has some significant differences to its predecessor the A2 reformer, it is visually very similar and is the same size. It also uses all the same accessories as the previous A2 models so that the A2 & A8 can easily coexist in the same studio.
The A8-Pro now benefits from off-centred shoulder rests to give a choice of shoulder widths.
