The Word on the Street

UPDATE:  The NordicTrack E 5.7 has been discontinued and replaced with all new, upgraded models.

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 on the E5.7

The E5.7 is a decent machine, but you are much better off with one of the newer models such as the C7.5 which at $799 has a lot more to offer, including additional built-in workouts, Bluetooth technology, additional resistance levels and a much stronger warranty.
