Adjustable stride length
Having the correct stride length is crucial for a quality workout on the cross trainer. The EX80 is the only cross trainer in its price range to offer stride length adjustment. It features five stride length adjustment settings between 45 cm and 65 cm to suit your height – perfect if several users want to keep fit on the same EX80 machine. In addition, various running movements from walking to cross-country skiing can be simulated.

The more stable the cross trainer, the more intensely and comfortably you can train on it. With its robust steel frame and compact design, the EX80 offers reliable stability. So you can pedal hard and the EX80 will keep a firm footing. The high maximum user weight of 150 kg and the 30-year guarantee on the frame also speak for its high level of stability.

Equipped with 19 training programmes, including watt- and pulse-controlled programmes for training sessions that are tailored to your needs, you can always take on new challenges.

Cushioned pedals
The non-slip and softly padded pedal surfaces ensure that you always have a secure footing on the elliptical trainer. The comfortable pedals are particularly useful for fast or longer workouts. The generously-sized pedals offer plenty of room for users to changing their foot position from time to time, especially those with larger feet.

Joint-friendly front wheeler
The EX80 is an elliptical trainer with a higher flywheel at the front. In combination with the short distance between the pedals, this special construction of the 12 kg flywheel and the clever articulated system ensures an extremely smooth and natural movement sequence. Joints, tendons and ligaments are even less encumbered.

Its many extra features make the EX80 even more commodious. These include padded arm bars, integrated hand pulse sensors and a drinking bottle holder, thanks to which you always have refreshment at hand. Thanks to the castors, the cross trainer can be set up in your favourite place and can be pushed aside again after your workout, to save space. For added convenience, you can also equip the EX80 with optional multi-grip arm bars.

cardiostrong elliptical crosstrainer EX80: a new training experience!

With the EX80 Elliptical Trainer, cardiostrong presents the "little brother" of the popular cardiostrong EX90 Elliptical Trainer . Like the EX90, the cardiostrong elliptical crosstrainer EX80 also makes a good impression with its novel training concept.

Comfortable Equipment

With the cardiostrong EX80, the resistance is generated by a magnet that acts on the flywheel. This braking system is maintenance-free, and also pleasantly quiet. The handlebars are covered with soft foam, making them comfortable to hold. Hand pulse sensors are attached to the ends of the handlebars. The pedals have a soft, non-slip surface, which offers comfort and a secure hold even during intensive training. The EX80 can be adjusted to the floor surface using the small levelling feet. This guarantees a steadfast position. The other features of the EX80 leave no wish unfulfilled: a drinking bottle holder is just as much a part of it as the practical castors that allow you to easily move the cross trainer after your workout.

Joint-friendly workout and adjustable stride length

The cardiostrong elliptical crosstrainer EX80 has a newly-developed articulated system that not only reduces the amount of floor space required by the fitness equipment, it also ensures comfort whilst you train. The flywheel at the front, which is mounted on high bearings, is connected to the foot pedals via an articulated system. As a result, the elliptical trainer produces a smooth, joint-friendly and natural movement sequence.

The technical highlight of the EX80 is its adjustable stride length. You can vary this manually in five steps between 45 and 65 cm. Users of different heights can set the right stride length for them. Thanks to the four user memories, the whole family can get optimal use of the EX80. The manual pedal adjustment has another benefit: it enables you to simulate different movements from stepping to running. By changing the stride length, you can train different muscle groups specifically and effectively. The EX80 is the only cross trainer in its class to feature an adjustable stride length.

Motivation through a variety of programmes

Besides the adjustable stride length and 16 resistance levels, the cardiostrong elliptical crosstrainer EX80 offers 19 varied programmes for different demands and training goals – from training with moderate intensity and longer recovery phases to demanding workouts. You can also design your own user programme according to your preferences. Four of the programmes are pulse-controlled for a particularly effective training session that is tailored to the user. This allows the EX80 to provide a targeted cardio or fat-burning workout that is tailored to your fitness level. For heart rate measurement, use the cardiostrong EX80 elliptical trainer's hand pulse sensors or – for particularly precise measurements – use the chest strap that is available as an accessory. In the watt-controlled programme, you train with constant intensity: the training computer adjusts the resistance to your pedalling speed. That way, individual performance specifications between 10 and 350 watts can be reliably met.

So that you have your training under control at all times, the cardiostrong elliptical crosstrainer EX80 is equipped with a clear, easy-to-read LCD display that informs you about data such as pace, time, pulse, calorie consumption, etc. The training computer is easy to use: almost all settings are made by turning and pressing the dial. So you can get started with your workout right away.

Holistic endurance training at home

The EX80 gives you a comprehensive total body workout that uses almost all the major muscles in the upper and lower body. Thanks to the arm bars, the cross trainer not only strengthens the leg muscles, but also actively involves the arms, back, abdomen and shoulders. With regular training on the cross trainer, you can increase your performance, reduce weight, strengthen the cardiovascular system or shape and tone the body – a great piece of exercise equipment for keeping fit in your own home!

EX80: awarded "very good" in the test result

The previous model of the cardiostrong EX80 was tested in the ETM Cross- and Elliptical Trainer Test (12/2014), gaining the test mark "very good". The extremely thorough test certifies that the elliptical trainer by cardiostrong provides a comfortable and varied workout and especially emphasises that the cross trainer has an adjustable stride length. You can find the full test below. The newer model features simpler stride length adjustment settings and an improved stride length display. In addition, the amount of cladding on the body has been reduced. That saves resources and, above all, looks much better.

Great product
en by Mark on 15.5.2013 5 Model: CST-EX80
Great product, it is very solid and has no wobbles or vibrations while in use (I am 80kgs). The motion is very smooth feels the same as using the cross trainers in the gym with nice long strides, being able to adjust the stride is a nice feature as on a shorter stride with a high resistance is very similar motion to a... [Read more] step machine. My only comment is that the machine is very heavy so the delivery men can only deliver to the ground floor. [Show less]
es by Anonym on 25.2.2021 5
Es una máquina más robusta de lo que me esperaba. Nosotros decidimos comprarla porque somos 4 personas en casa que la ibamos a usar, y el que se pueda ajustar la zancada es genial. Asi realmente todos entrenamos de forma muy cómoda. El moviemiento además resulta muy natural. 100% contentos con la compra!

Ich bin so begeistert von diesem Gerät. Ich hatte davor schon mehrere Cross Trainer die preislich definitiv günstiger waren als dieser, welche aber meist nach ca. einem Jahr super laut wurden oder einfach nicht mehr richtig funktioniert hatten. Ich habe dieses Gerät zwar erst seit kurzem aber kann es nicht mit den Vorg... [Read more]ängern die ich bisher hatte vergleichen. Da dieser Cross Trainer fast täglich ca. eine halbe Stunde im Gebrauch ist und ich zuvor eher negative Erfahrungen mit günstigeren Geräten gemacht hatte habe ich mich nun für dieses Gerät entschieden. Es läuft so ruhig und macht mir so viel Spaß damit Sport zu machen, bin wirklich so zufrieden. [Show less]
de by Sven on 18.2.2021 5
Meine Frau und ich haben jahrelang im Fitnessstudio trainiert. Ein Gerät, das bei unseren Trainingseinheiten nie fehlte, war der Crosstrainer. Also machte ich mich im Internet auf die Suche nach einem passenden Gerät für den Heimgebrauch. Im Studio hatte ich hohe Ansprüche an die Profigeräte, von denen auch einige hier... [Read more] bei Sport-Tiedje verkauft werden. So musste auch ein Gerät her, welches meinen Ansprüchen in Zukunft gerecht wird, zumal ich zuletzt bis dreimal die Woche mindestens eine einstündige Trainingseinheit mit hohem Widerstand auf dem Gerät absolviert habe. Die mannigfaltigen Angebote zu Crosstrainern im Internet werden dem Leser dieser Kundenbewertung sicherlich bekannt sein und auch ich hatte Schwierigkeiten, mich in diesem Preisdschungel zurecht zu finden. Anfangs hatte ich über den Kauf eines gebrauchten Profigerätes nachgedacht, war aber nicht bereit 2000 – 3000€ für ein gebrauchtes Gerät auszugeben. Letztendlich bot mir die Rubrik „Crosstrainer Kaufratgeber“ auf dieser Seite eine gute Unterstützung bei der Wahl des richtigen Gerätes. Ich habe es gewagt und ohne vorheriges Ausprobieren (Lockdown) den cardiostrong EX80 als Ausstellungstück bestellt. Zu meiner großen Freude steht auf dem Gerät 20. Sept 2020, also keine 4 Monate alt. Das Gerät macht einen neuwertigen Eindruck, ich habe tatsächlich keine nennenswerte Gebrauchsspuren erkennen können. Lieferung per Spedition war unkompliziert, allerdings steht dann ein Paket beträchtlichen Ausmaßes vor der Haustür, welches vor Ort ausgepackt werden muss. Der EX80 war sehr professionell verpackt, was allerdings auch dazu führt, dass viel Verpackungsmaterial anfällt. Wir waren zweimal beim Wertstoffhof, um alle Verpackungsmaterialien zu entsorgen. Der Aufbau des Gerätes ist übersichtlich und gut beschrieben. Es werden mindestens zwei Personen für den Aufbau benötigt, - unbedingt! Der Korpus mit dem Schwungrad wurde in einem Stück geliefert, ist schwer und unhandlich. Für den Transport zur Aufbaustelle empfiehlt sich ein Transport/Plattenwagen. Ein Aufzug ist von Vorteil im Treppenhaus. Leicht empfand ich den Aufbau nicht, allein die Montage der Pedalstützrohre war nervig und zeitaufwendig. Eine Aufbauzeit von 90 Minuten halte ich für sportlich. Im Vergleich zu anderen Profi Crosstrainern ist der EX80 wirklich platzsparend, er ist ja auch ein Ellipsentrainer, aber, - klein ist er nicht. Der EX80 hat vorne Transportrollen. Das man jedoch nach einem ausgiebigen Training das Gerät jedes Mal wieder in seine Ecke zurück stellt, wage ich zu bezweifeln. Durch seine Ausmaße hat der EX80 wenig Bewegungsspiel und ist zu dem auch hinten schwer zu heben. Da, wo der EX80 aufgestellt wird, bleibt er auch stehen, er ist meiner Meinung nach nicht geeignet für den täglichen Transport / das tägliche Verschieben. Unser EX80 macht hier und da leise Knackgeräusche im Stand (vermutlich temperaturabhängig), also so wie bei einem gerade geparkten Auto. Das stört uns im Alltag nicht, aber im Schlafzimmer würde ich den Trainer nicht aufbauen. Die Schrittlänge lässt sich gut manuell einstellen, bietet viel Abwechslung beim Training und war auch ein Entscheidungskriterium beim Kauf. Hochgewachsene Personen sollten jedoch noch mal die Deckenhöhe überprüfen, gerade bei kurzer Schrittlänge verlagern sich die Pedale nach oben oder auch, wenn man die Arme während des Trainings nach oben ausstrecken möchte. Das große LCD-Display wirkt für die medial geprägten Menschen vielleicht eher retro, aber das ist Geschmackssache. Wir brauchen keine multimedialen Zusatzfunktionen, da der kleine Bruder des EX90 bei uns im Wohnzimmer steht. Die reiche Programmvielfalt bietet alles, was der ambitionierte Sportler braucht (Für uns ein weiteres Kaufkriterium). Einzig mit der Pulsmessung habe ich noch meine Herausforderung, ein Brustgurt kann vielleicht abhelfen. Die Menüführung ist auf Englisch gehalten, wird jedoch in der Bedienungsanleitung ausreichend auf Deutsch beschrieben. Nach dem Training trennen wir den EX80 immer von der Stromzufuhr. Erfreulicherweise gehen hierbei personenbezogene Daten, wie Alter, Geschlecht, Gewicht, Körpergröße nicht verloren. Diese Daten müssen beim nächsten Training nur noch Mal bestätigt werden. Mein Fazit: Der EX80 ist sehr robust gebaut, läuft weich und geräuscharm. Er bietet viel Abwechslung, man wird seiner nicht Müde. Die Pedale sind schön groß und bieten mit der hohen Umrandung ein sicheres Laufgefühl. Zusätzlichen Spaß bietet das Griffstangen-Upgrade. In dieser Preiskategorie sollte hier nicht gespart werden. Klare Kaufempfehlung!! [Show less]
