Nordictrack AudioStrider 990 PRO Elliptical Review




Nordictrack AudioStrider 990 PRO Elliptical Review

Good points

    • Supports the new iFit Live (sold separately)
    • Comes with the usual set of special features such as fans, music port, spacesaver design, etc
    • For an elliptical that can be had for as low as $600 when it’s on sale, it sure comes with a lot of built in workout programs (15 toning + 10 performance)
    • Stride length of 18″ to 20″ is generous
    • Accomodates users up to 350 lbs


Bad points

  • Though it supports iFit Live, the actual module itself is not included
  • Not as compact as the other machines

Comments

  • Though the Nordictrack AudioStrider 990 Pro elliptical was newly released in late 2009, there are already four reviews on the Nordictrack website with one stating it was already available in January. As far as we know, this machine was not released at that time so read the reviews with a grain of salt. That aside, the Nordictrack Audiostrider 990 PRO is really impressive on paper. It has pretty much all the functions and features you would expect from an elliptical such as audio, workout console, long strides, and even support for the new iFit Live. It also has the standard warranty of 1 year parts and labor warranty with a weight capacity on the high end. However, with a $999 regular retail price tag, we think it’s a little LOW. On paper, $1299 or even $1499 retail is about right. Perhaps too good to be true? In anycase, if it’s ever on sale for less than $600 you really can’t lose.
