The Bottom Line

The Diamondback 1260Ef is a high-quality machine that continuously receives positive reviews from fitness users. While its standard price range would lead one to assume it includes basic comfort features like a cooling fan and music options, this disappointment is quickly forgiven when one experiences its wide range of workout programs and customizable settings. While the console is far from cutting-edge, it is easy to read, able to report all the stats you need for an effective workout and electronically control your incline. Users enjoy its easy-to-use capabilities combined with a smooth and natural ride that reduces the chance of injury. If you are very tall or petite in stature, the Diamondback Fitness 1260Ef may not work well as it has a fixed stride – however, average-sized folks will benefit greatly from its ability to increase in both program variety and personal challenge. Diamondback produces an excellent line of elliptical machines, with the 1260Ef a leader in both budget and effectiveness. While not the most affordable model out there, you definitely get what you pay for and will reap the rewards of a comfortable, safe and challenging workout that can be customized to meet the individual needs of each and every family member who decides to give elliptical fitness a try.
