C8 Pro Pilates Reformer
The new flagship C Series reformer, the Align-Pilates C8-Pro
February 2020 sees the launch of the latest C Series reformer, the fifth generation C2-Pro RC. The new model builds on the excellent reputation of our best-selling C2-Pro reformer, with the introduction of new patent pending Rapid Change (RC) spring bar together with a host of refinements to enhance the machines excellent Studio credentials.
The rapid change spring bar, radically alters the ease and speed of adjusting your reformer, which is particularly beneficial in the group class environment, where the C2-Pro RC excels. The spring bar can be adjusted, with springs attached, with a one hand in a single action saving up to 12 additional actions compared with most standard reformers!
The C2-Pro RC is stackable and can free-stand, either with the optional new freestanding feet or, if leg extensions are fitted, which in turn raise the bed height to 42 cm versus the 24 cm bed height of the standard machine. Like earlier Pro models in the C series, this reformer can accept either a Full or, a Half Cadillac frame making this the most versatile reformer in its class, whilst offering unparalleled value for money.
The C2 Pro RC reformer – one reformer which adapts to suit your Pilates life, in the Studio, Clinic or home. Components from the C2 Pro RC, such as the full and half Cadillac frame are also cross-compatible with A2 Series machines, giving you additional possibilities and flexibility as your studio grows.

Compatibility With Other C Series Reformers
Despite all the changes the C2 Pro RC, all the earlier C Series accessories remain compatible e.g. the mattress insert, standing platform, leg extensions, half and full Cadillac frames. This makes using C2 Pro RC’s in the same studio as earlier C series reformers a breeze and levers on any earlier investments in the series. Furthermore, for those already invested in earlier C Series machines, there is a very high percentage of backward compatibility for spare parts, as this is one of the cornerstones of Align-Pilates’ design principles
