Body Bike launches OceanIX bike made from recycled plastic

Indoor bike manufacturer Body Bike has teamed up with Plastix to launch the world's first indoor bike, made from reclaimed plastic.

The bike, which is expected to launch at FIBO in April, is called the OceanIX and features the functionality of the company's SMART+ model and includes ANT+ and BLE integration which enables users to track their performance data via a smartphone or mobile device.

Available in ocean blue, the OceanIX is built entirely from recycled plastic from reclaimed commercial fishing nets. The plastic was sourced from Plastix, a Denmark-based company that buys used plastic fishing nets from commercial fishing fleets around the world to prevent the nets from being left in the ocean or going into landfill. Once collected the nets are manually sorted before being turned into pellets of recycled plastic which can then be repurposed.

Uffe A Olesen, CEO of Body Bike, says: "OceanIX is something we're incredibly proud of. It isn't just a piece of gym equipment. It's part of a cause. It's something we're doing because we feel it's the right thing to do."

"It's also the first piece of commercial gym equipment in the world to use this material," Olesen adds.
