Product Summary

The Diamondback Elliptical 1060ef is a compact and lightweight elliptical featuring three adjustable stride lengths, eight preset workout programs, Polar heart rate compatibility, and dual-spindle technology which eliminates the friction experienced with the traditional elliptical roller-and-rail design. Additionally, users can swap between the three optional stride lengths (18, 20, or 23-inches) for a more tailored fit. This elliptical features Whisper Quiet Magnetic Resistance technology, which is reportedly very responsive and precise.

This elliptical functions in both forward and reverse motions, which can help you target different muscle groups. The steel handlebars are covered in a high density foam and swing to mimic your natural running stride. They also come equipped with hand pulse sensors to monitor your heart rate. You can also view important stats on the small dual color LCD monitor, such as watts, distance, heart rate, speed, calories, RPMs, and basal metabolic rate. The 1060ef does offer eight onboard workout options, but if you are looking for interactive programming or a techy monitor, the 1060ef may not be for you.
