QUICK REVIEW

Pros The Evolve 5 has easy three-step assembly and simple folding for convenient storage. Known as FeatherLight Folding, the folding system works off of hydraulics for an effortless method for freeing up space between workouts. A longer stride works hard to provide a comfortable workout for all shapes and sizes.
Cons As the Evolve 5 is new to the elliptical scene, these machines haven’t had long to be test run by the general public. Their compact ability may also bring a bit of instability to the unit, especially with higher weight classes.
Summary The Evolve 5 is the latest in a line of impressive elliptical machines from Horizon fitness. With an ergonomic design and extra-long stride, all family members can enjoy using this machine for all their fitness needs. An easy three-step assembly system keeps things simple and straightforward without compromising on technology and advanced features.
