ElliptiGo

This contraption is quickly getting popular among professional endurance athletes. Best described as an outdoor elliptical bike, it provides a no-impact cardio workout that rivals your everyday triathlon training sessions. Invented by two Ironman triathletes, it has multiple gears like a bike, and can reach up to 25 miles per hour. Most importantly, it realistically mimics a running motion and allows you to burn more calories than you would on a bike. $1,799–$3,499, Elliptigo.com
