For the price point the Spirit XE285 has a very nice smooth elliptical motion and a number of features that inhance the fit. Spirit has reduced the foot print of their ellipticalsfor a more compact unit - always a bonus with ellipticals.
The easy to use electronic console with blue backlight LCD display offers 10 preset programs with two heart rate control programs. It features a built-in cooling fan and water bottle holder. Resistance can be changed by pressing the controls built into the handle bar grips. Flashing Muscle Profiles give you a visable indication of what muscles are being activated during the exercise.
The combination of a heavy flywheel and a high gear ratio means an extremely smooth feel with plenty of resistance. Cardio touch sensors for monitoring your heart rate and a Polar heart rate chest strap is included for the interactive programs.
The 295 foot pedal has three different adjustment angles. Simply pull the handle on the back of the foot pedal and adjust from zero to five to ten degrees. This will allow you to find the most comfortable position for your gait pattern. As well, the 2 degree inward slope to the foot pedal reduces ankle and knee stress common in other elliptical machines.
The four rear wheels ride on a heavy duty rail providing a smooth, stable feel and reduce side to side foot pedal motion.
