Best Elite Elliptical Trainers
Elite, or top-level, elliptical trainers are typically above $1500 and come with all of the bells and whistles, along with multiple customizable options, an advanced console, and durable frame. The average stride length for top trainers, which is typically adjustable, is 24 inches and most oversized pedals are also adjustable, and equipped with no-slip cushioning. Average user weight capacity is typically over 375 pounds, making these trainers ideal for most any user but also hard to move around in tight spaces. Flywheel weights average well above 16 pounds and most trainers are built with some variation of the eddy current brake system making these trainers incredibly quiet and smooth. Many consoles not only include basic features, but also feature internet connectivity, Apple or Andriod connectivity, and over 20 workout programs. Most trainers also come with wireless heart rate monitoring systems, and workout programs to track heart rate. Lifetime warranties on frames at least 3 year warranties on parts and labor are typical.
