The ProForm 890E Elliptical Blows Away the Competition

Value is hard to find in machines under $700, which is why the ProForm 890E elliptical is such a delightful steal when you can get it on sale. When this $999 MSRP machine drops into the lower price class of $699, it blows away the competition.

The Word on the Street

Proform 890E Console

The list of components and features on the Proform 890E elliptical is usually found on pricier machines costing $1299 or more, including, a 10 to 30-degree Power Ramp which increases and decreases the incline, and modifies the stride length from 18"- 20", in order to stimulate more muscle groups.

The 890E has a large user weight capacity of 325 lbs, 20 resistance levels, 24 pre-set programs, an iPod® plug-in port and built-in sound system, hand grip sensors, and is compatible with iFit® cards.

While it isn’t a Cadillac elliptical by any means, for the price you pay the ProForm 890E offers more value than other machines priced around $700. Elliptical reviews praise the adjustable resistance, cooling fan, decent sound system, iPod dock, and especially the 30-degree incline as well as the large, stable footprint.

Our Thoughts

ProForm elliptical trainers are made by Icon Fitness, the same parent company that makes NordicTrack.

This 890E looks like a NordicTrack, and has many of the same features and components, for example the 18"- 20" adjustable stride length and 30° power ramp, is the same design as you find installed on the NordicTracks.

The only difference is the brand name and cosmetics. The ProForm does not have the new Fit® Live feature, but no matter; it costs hundreds of dollars less than the NTs. Sale priced at an eye-popping $649, the ProForm 890E elliptical is a Good Buy.
