The E50 is the upper end model in Matrix's new Suspension Elliptical line, built specifically for the home market using all of the same components and design that the commercial line is known for. You are truly getting a health club machine right in your home gym.
The Matrix E50 elliptical is strong and compact, with exclusive technologies built in that you don't find anywhere else, even on the commercial level.
Let's take a look at some of the best features...
Reviews on the new Matrix home ellipticals have been very positive so far, as the company is really putting a lot of effort into ensuring that the quality matches their commercial line as closely as possible.
The E50 elliptical is built strong and durable, with several unique technologies built in to ensure the best possible workout. For starters, you have the Exact Force Induction Brake System, a smooth resistance system that offers enhanced performance while remaining whisper quiet. It is a step up from the system used on the base E30 model.
With Suspension Elliptical Technology, the motion is smooth and natural as there are no wheels involved, reducing noise and friction.
You also get ViaFit workout tracking that allows you to keep tabs on your fitness results, share them with friends and family and sync with your favorite apps.
The E50 gives you a fixed 20" stride and 30 levels of resistance, 10 more than on the A30 model. It also has Sprint 8 interval training, an exclusive workout program that delivers maximum results in a short amount of time.
One of the most appealing features of the E50 and the rest of the Matrix home lineup is the fact that you can choose from three different consoles to customize the machine, something you rarely find elsewhere. There is a basic XR display, an XER 10" touch screen with internet and an XIR 16" HD touch screen with browser. The two touch screens cost an additional $500 and $1000, respectively.
The different consoles give you different options and functionality, so go through them closely to decide which one is right for you.
The basic XR gives you ViaFit, Passport HD videos on your TV and 6 workout programs. The XER adds Virtual Active videos right on the console, Bluetooth capability, speakers, fitness apps and 14 workouts. The XIR has all of the same features as the XER plus a web browser.
Regardless of which console you choose, the E50 is a rock-solid elliptical with plenty of features to keep you motivated to workout. It's compact yet durable, and will provide years of use for you and your family.
You can't go wrong with the Matrix E50 elliptical. It is on the pricier side, especially with the advanced consoles, but it is well worth the price for what you are getting.
If you want a little more flexibility in terms of stride, check out the A50 Ascent Trainer which has all of the same features but a 20-24" stride as well as 24-54% incline capability for better muscle targeting.
Here is your chance to rant or rave about the elliptical you use at home or at the fitness center.
