      When you compare the products, please mind that some manufacturers define differently the balance mass of their crosstrainers. Therefore, the indications can vary among each other. Besides the weights of flywheel, pulley, and caryying wheel respectively cross and blank discs (levelling discs), the indications of balance mass of some manufacturers consider additionally the weights of pedal arms, handle bars, and other parts. This is dubious in our opinion. We define the balance mass as "total weight of flywheel, pulley, carrying wheel respectively cross and blanc discs", which form the rear balance unit.

Positives: Easy to assemble with adjustable footplates and handles. Nearly completely silent while in use. Clear and easy to understand display. Negatives: Somewhat low resistance. I had a hard time telling the difference between resistance levels. Pulse meter is completely and utterly useless. It always starts displaying around 90bpm no matter what my pulse is. After a minutes reading it slowly rises to about 120 even though my pulse is 160 . Get a separate pulse meter if you want to know your pulse.... [Read more]

I am extremely happy with this product. Advantages: - smooth functioning - high quality materials - user-friendly display (very clear to understand) - easy-to-use training programs - extensive choice of programs - pleasing-to-the-eye appearance - silent and stable Disadvantages: - handles around the display are slightly shaky - doesn\'t store user\'s past records - doesn\'t have a useful recovery program (when the recovery program is chosen, the same training program runs through again) Overall I really think this crosstrainer fits perfectly my needs and I believed I paid a very good price for such a high quality product....

La mejor bicicleta elíptica para casa que he encontrados, su calidad frente al precio se ajusta a lo que buscaba, es robusta y una vez en ella tienes la misma sensación que en las bicicletas de gimnasio. Es muy fácil de montar y con todo lo necesario para poder hacerlo. La utilizo sobre todo para mantenerme en mi peso y quemar grasas, y un par de veces a la semana para aumentar mi resistencia. Ademas el dispositivo de control te ayuda a llevar una rutina y es de gran ayuda para ponerte objetivos y animarte a alcanzarlos.... [Read more]

Had it only a couple of weeks, but I am very happy with the EX40. It\'s a sturdy piece of equipment and quiet when used. The different programs will keep me going for a very long time. The only negative would be the weight of the crosstrainer. About 75kgs. So, although it has two small front wheels, it is still quite difficult to move around.

Excellent unit! Very quiet and trouble free. The pre programs are good enough for daily use, I go thought two ot three of the program\'s each day for a total of 2 x 20 minutes work out. Love it. Only issue was I have to do the assembly myself, not difficult but machine is heavy and needs two person to help set it up.

Very happy with the product. Although the instructions were only in German, the diagrams were easy to understand. The machine has a slight wobble and creak I cannot resolve, but works perfectly.

I bought this without seeing it or trying it out, as it was a Top Seller and both the store customer ratings were good The customer reviews were positive, and in reality - it did not disappoint, in fact it is even better than I hoped. It is very solid yet at same time very quiet and runs smoothly. I am very happy with this purchase!
