Simple to use the E-40 has a similar braking system as an indoor cycle. This is 20-24" shorter than most ellipticals but still allows for a comfortable 20" stride. This a great choice for those who want a smooth ride without any bells and whistles.
The E-40 elliptical is fitted with a manual resistance that the user turns clockwise to increase resistance (simulates hill-climbing) or anti-clockwise to decrease resistance at any time. This allows a much greater range of levels of resistance.
Consumer's Reports gave this elliptical the Top Rated Award for Elliptical for 2017 over Landice and Octane.
The E-40 elliptical has 4 program options that allow the user to set workout goals or to race against a computer competitor at three different levels. To choose a program, simply turn the Go/Enter button when at the main menu and the program names (G1 to G4) will scroll across the bottom of the screen. Press the enter buttons to select the desired program and enter any parameters if necessary.
Make no mistake this is a quality piece of equipment.
