Burning calories is what a lot of people strive to do in order to become physically fit. This can be enhanced further with one of ProForm’s finest products to date. The ProForm RE is certainly a machine that will give users the best possible full body workout they can ever experience.
- Excellent stride range from 20” to 22”. This should satisfy users of most heights
- Many ellipticals especially from competing brands lack the ability to incline but this is not the case with the Proform 14.0 RE.
- The 20 lb flywheel is reasonably heavy so you should expect a reasonable smooth and steady workout experience
- Pretty decent value for your money at the review price of $699
- For the price, we don’t see any overwhelming flaws but we don’t see anything also that makes us want to say “Buy! Buy! Buy!”
The Proform 14.0 RE elliptical is a newly released model just in time for Black Friday and 2013. At the time of review, there is a sale going on with a discount of $600 off the regular price. This brings the price down to $699 and in our opinion, great value for your money. Let’s take a look at why.
Ellipticals less than $800 are considered starter or budget ellipticals. At this price, one usually expects an elliptical that functions but doesn’t function particularly well. One should also expect a reasonably reliable but not reliable enough to withstand more than several years of consistent use without encountering some technical problems. With the Proform RE 14.0, it is a case where we get a lot of different features and functions for its price level, but quality and reliability that is only slightly better than the competitor.
Having multiple adjustable strides, multiple incline settings, almost 2 dozen different workout programs, MP3 player support, workout air fans, 20 resistance levels and oversized, cushioned pedals scores it a lot of points in the features and specs department especially since it’s a $699 elliptical. An average warranty with a low (but honest) weight capacity and an unspecified product weight leaves us with doubts in regards to just how long it can last under heavy use.
