– Good points: Features an usual but innovative decline function for an elliptical Strong warranty for its price point. Longer than usual stride range at 20″-22″ Bad points: Doesn’t include the newer technologies such as the Android powered browser or iFit module Comments: The Nordictrack Elite 12.0 is the second offering from Nordictrack’s Elite lineup of ellipticals. Overall, the Nordictrack Elite 12.0 does have a few things going for it namely the decline function (seems to be a first for Nordictrack) and a warranty that is appropriate for its price. With a weight capacity above 350 lbs at 375 lbs combined with the warranty, the engineers at Nordictrack seem to have quite a bit in this piece of machinery. At approximately when on sale, it’s certainly more expensive but probably money well spent especially compared to the sub ellipticals on the market.
