The Word on the Street

Nordictrack E5.7 Console

The features on the NordicTrack E5.7 elliptical include a hefty 250-pound frame that measures 65 x 27 x 70 inches, plus transport wheels, and an Eddy Current Magnetic brake system with 20 levels of digital resistance. The stride length can be adjusted from 18" - 20" and the ramp can be positioned manually from a flat level up to an incline of 20 degrees. It’s also a good looking machine with a platinum metallic color and offers a user weight capacity up to 300 pounds, plus it has iFit Live capability.

But that’s where the good news ends. While the specs listed above seem enticing, once you read a handful of user reviews you realize that this $599 trainer is not well designed or well built. When it works, the NordicTrack E5.7 offers a choppy elliptical feel while pedaling which taller riders will notice right away. But the most alarming fact is that up to 50% of users who post online reviews report problems with the construction with welds failing, pedals and arms breaking, and other manufacturing defects.

Our Thoughts

NordicTrack’s customer service is notoriously bad so you may end up stuck with a 250-lb machine sitting in the middle of the room that you can’t return to Sears or Amazon. You’ll find in your research that the company makes better rear-drive machines than front-drive machines, but even those are giving home users reliability problems. We suggest you skip the NordicTrack E5.7 elliptical and check out a Horizon or Livestrong entry-level model for much better value.
