If you are looking for the best elliptical, then check out what the Nordictrack E 9.0 Elliptical could offer and find out how it would help you achieve your fitness goals.

Good Points

  • The Nordictrack E9.0 features a very rare -10 degree incline. When most ellipticals under $1000 don’t even have an incline option, it makes having a decline ramp stand out all the more
  • Comes with an abundant 30 preprogrammed workouts so even if you don’t plan on getting the iFit Live module, there’s still plenty for you to experiment with
  • It’s good to see Nordictrack continue the trend of offering multiple stride lengths for the Elite (E) series  of ellipticals
  • Good 3 years on warranty which is above average for a $1000 elliptical
  • Includes a wireless chess strap which is also above average and unexpected for this price
  • 350 weight capacity with a 30 lb flywheel – both figures suggest Nordictrack has really upped the quality on this one
  • Includes rarely seen in-handle control keys so you can adjust resistance and incline without even touching the console screen

Bad Points

  • It would probably be too greedy of us to ask that it include an iFit Live module and subscription as well
  • Though we know the weight of the flywheel, the total weight of the machine is still not stated so we still have some doubts on the overall quality of the elliptical

Verdict

It’s not often that we’re impressed with an elliptical that’s sold for less than $1000 but that’s exactly the case here with the Nordictrack E9.0. Despite a regular price of $1499 and a sale price of $999 at the time of review, we’re surprised at just how many features the elliptical has from decline ramp to wireless heart rate strap to an impressive 30 workout programs. This is not to say it has everything Nordictrack could possibly include because it still lacks an iFit Live module and integrated web browser. But remember, this is only a $999 elliptical so Nordictrack has to save something for its upper end models.

We’ve pretty much gotten used to the feature-laden ellipticals that Nordictrack is known for but the E9.0 excels in a second area: quality. Now, now, it’s still nowhere close to what we would consider commercial grade and we would still be hesitant in recommending this to users who are determined to give hell to their ellipticals. But it’s not often we see an elliptical feature a 30 lb flywheel and this coming from Nordictrack makes it all the more impressive. The 350 weight capacity, 3 year parts is just icing on the cake. The only piece of missing information is the weight of the elliptical.

Along with the A.C.T Commercial, this is arguably the best elliptical offering from Nordictrack’s under $1000 category in 2012. Catch it while it’s still on sale!
