Let’s be honest. This product is not for the average cyclist. In fact, it’s specifically labeled as “Training for the Elite,” though in this case, that has a bit of a double meaning. That’s because the Fuoripista Bike is the latest product from Elite that’s also for the elite.

Fuoripista Bike offers futuristic $16,000 stationary training for the Elite

Completely removed from your average stationary bike, the Fuoripista Bike is the artistic vision of Adriano Design. Meant to “combine sculptural and architectural beauty with remarkable functionality,” the goal was to create a stationary bike that would look right at home in the center of your mansion, corner office, etc.

To make sure the bike stands out while also camouflaging the fact that it’s a cycling trainer, the Fuoripista is made from wood, glass, and high polished aluminum, with Brooks leather thrown in for good measure. The bike includes an adjustable seat post height with a hidden clamp, and an adjustable handlebar position to help dial in the fit.

In spite of the price tag, the tablet is NOT included

In addition to the visually striking design, the Fuoripista is also quite technologically advanced with an integrated pwoermeter with +/-2.5% accuracy and built in “virtual shifters” which increase or decrease the resistance of the silky smooth (and silent) ride. You can either ride it in stand alone mode, or connect it to Zwift or any other virtual training program (like the included 36 month E-Training program) with the ANT+ or Bluetooth Smart connections, plus FE-C, PWR, and S&C. And to ensure that there are no wires to mess with your Feng Shui, the whole trainer runs on a rechargeable lithium ion battery.

Like most products aimed at the elite, if you have to ask the price, well… We’re told that you can expect to spend 12-14k€ on the Fuoripista, which would put it in the realm of $14,000 to nearly $16,500 depending on the options. But if you’re trying to find a statement piece for your home or office that also doubles as a stationary bike, you’d be hard pressed to find a more striking design.

  1. Why is the saddle position so far behind the BB? Additionally, as you raise the saddle, you go back even further based on that step seat tube angle.

    If you’re thinking about buying one of these, just let me know. I’ll gladly light your money on fire for you.

  2. It’s a beautiful piece, but when I win the lottery and build my man cave, I’m going to put that money into a Kickr, Kickr Climb, Kickr Headwind, and titanium fridge for all the bottled beer.

    I just don’t see the Fuoripista fitting in with any man cave.

  3. I’m not buying one because of the crank. It’s just too cheap looking – I mean really, can’t they raise the price a few thousand and make it bronze or something? So hideous. And look at the gap next to the screen! What horrible workmanship – can’t they pay their laborers a bit more? Also would those pedals even work with heels?? Hardly. I mean who do they think will buy this?!

  4. I’m disappointed that the polished details are bare aluminum and not stainless. Hopefully they chose a corrosion resistant alloy. If I had the money and desire I’d spend it on a Hpcosmos cycling treadmill instead.

  5. I think I would need my houseboy wipe it down after each ride. Looks like sweat would be a bad thing to leave on it.
