While MaxiRider is manufactured using quality components and is designed to offer maximum performance with minimal maintenance, wear is inevitable. Sweat and body oils can break down finishes and accelerate the wear of some metals and rubber parts, so it is important to spend some time cleaning your machine, this will help ensure potential corrosive materials not to sit overnight.

  • Dry excess sweat that may fall on your MaxiRider during your workout.
  • Wipe frames and other powder coated surfaces down with a damp cloth. If a more thorough cleaning is needed, a mixture of mild dish soap and water can be used.
  • After cleaning, it’s best to dry the frame completely with a clean, dry cloth. This will further prevent corrosion or rust from forming.
  • To clean rubber handles, use a solution that is ten percent mild dish soap and ninety percent warm water. Apply it with a damp cloth (or a soft bristle brush for more stubborn soiling), and then wipe the residue away with another damp cloth.
  • Steel surfaces and handles can be cleaned with a cloth dipped in a very light solution of dish soap and water, and dried with a dry cloth.
  • Spray cleaners are ok, but be careful of any overspray onto rubber surfaces, as any chemicals stronger than dish soap will eat away at the rubber.
  • Silicone or teflon spray is normally ok, particularly on any internal parts that are not very exposed and won’t collect dust, as long as it doesn’t conflict with the manufacturer’s recommendations.
  • Cables that are frayed, bent or twisted need to be replaced. Under normal use it’s hard to damage them, but please contact us if you need replacement.

While cleaning your MaxiRider after each workout removed surface dirt, you can do a biweekly or monthly maintenance as well. Doing these things will help you prolong the life of your MaxiRider if done correctly.

  • Wipe down your equipment regularly with a soft cloth and a mild cleanser.
  • Lubricate the rollers with coconut oil, WD-40 or a silicone based lubricant. Using the smart straw, if available, apply one quick burst directly to the pedal rollers. After applying, wipe away the excess while moving the pedals to adequately coat the inner mechanism.
  • Polishing the frames of your equipment with a good automotive or non-appliance wax will provide a longer lasting barrier against corrosive fluids and make your MaxiRider look great.

It doesn’t cost much time or money to keep your MaxiRider in good shape. Metal rusts if not cared for, rubber can develop cracks, and moving parts in machines can start feeling rough. Removing and preventing rust will also prevent the health risks of coming into contact with too much rust, or worse, getting it into your eyes or mouth.
