Back in January, we talked about the new accessory for the Nintendo Wii Fit that turned the remote and nunchuck into a set of dumbbells. At the time, the Riiflex didn’t have a price or a ship date. The makers behind the Riiflex accessory have now announced the final pricing for the device.
The Riiflex Dumbbells will be sold in pairs to start with, at a price of $34.95 for a set of two, two-pound weights that fit both controllers. A pair of 4-pound weights will also be available for $39.95 per set. The two-pound weight set will ship this summer with the ship date for the four pound set coming later.
Company founder and creator of the Riiflex(TM) Paul Holcomb stated, "We wanted to develop a product line of quality fitness gear that can extend the functionality of the growing number of fitness titles for the Wii(TM) and Wii Fit(TM). We believe the Wii Fit(TM) is tapping into a large market demand to make gym time feel more like play time. We are dedicated to develop products that help people meet this need."
