How to assemble your C8-S Pilates Reformer

Follow along with Scott from Align-Pilates on how to assemble your C8-S Pilates Reformer.

New for Summer 2022 comes the C8-S. Whereas the bestselling C8-Pro was optimised for maximum performance, adaptability, and ease of maintenance, the C8-S seeks to repackage this proven design into a sleeker and more stylish machine. The C8-S focuses on clean flowing lines achieved by bringing the standing platform and rope risers within the frame and simplifying the legs. The C8-S is particularly aimed at the group reformer studio and the more style oriented home studio.

The C8-S is operationally almost exactly the same as the C8-Pro, using the same carriage, runner profile, running gear and adjustment systems so you can expect the same smooth and silent user experience. For owners of existing C-Series the C8-S also uses the same Jump Board, Mattress Inserts, and Platform Extender. The C8-S comes in a standard height of 26cm which can be raised to 42cm with its optional almost seamless leg extensions.

In order to preserve the clean look, the C8-S frame and legs are not pre-drilled to take a Half Cadillac frame like the C8-Pro. For those wishing to use a Half Cadillac, a clamp style Half Cadillac Bracket is available, or alternatively the reformer can be used with our Wall Mounted Half Cadillac, which actually offers a superior experience as there will be no clanking Half Cadillac springs (or need to remove these) when using the Jump Board. In a studio setting this Wall Mounted Half Cadillac also means that the reformer and Half Cadillac can be separated to create two workstations, rather than just having the one.

The differences between the C8-S and the C8-Pro are: the stainless steel rope risers, 1.5cm less carriage travel (but still an excellent 105cm); very similar but fractionally different footbar positions; 1.5cm narrower standing platform, white frame, runners and legs; different leg extensions and the inability to have Full or Half Cadillac attached. On the plus side it looks great and functions beautifully!
