1060ef Key Specs:


Engineers from Diamondback Fitness successfully compiled all the needs of a regular elliptical trainer home user into a single compact machine. They introduced a brand new model for 2019 - the 1060ef, which had hit the top in most reviews you can find online, almost immediately. In our opinion, this light-weight, premium-quality machine with small footprint and adjustable stride length is one of the best cross trainers under $1500 on the market.

Diamondback 1060ef Elliptical Review

Continuing the tradition of excellence, Diamondback Fitness has outperformed the competition again. The 1060EF is lighter, smaller and more compact than other space-saving models by industry-leading brands. This will especially delight those who have limited space for fitness equipment. Although it has a smaller footprint, the 1060ef still provides a longer maximum stride length than most ellipticals on the market.

We like the new design of floating pedals very much. Engineers from Diamondback Fitness eliminated the outdated components (inefficient roller-and-rail design, for instance) and refined the 1060EF with dual-spindle technology to mimic more-natural motion regardless if you walk, jog, or run. The stride length is adjustable within 3 levels: from 18, through 20, to 23 inches. As a final result, the combination of adjustable stride and magnetic resistance with quiet Poly-V belt provides more effectively target upper and lower body muscle groups while taking up significantly less space.

The 1060EF's compter console is preloaded with 12 pre-programmed workouts (8 preset programs and 4 heart rate controlled programs). You can track your fitness progress or create custom workouts (there are also 4 additinal custom programs available). The backlit LCD console is easy to read and what is more important, it is very easy to use.

Other features include bottle holder, transport wheels, adjustable floor levelers, hand pulse sensors, oversized foot pedals, durable steel handlebars, hand pulse sensors...
