Image of Space Saving Design

Space Saving Lightweight Design

The 1280ef is one of the most space saving Ellipticals on the market today. At only 187 lbs, it’s nearly half the weight of other Ellipticals in its class. Because of its space saving design, it won’t take up much space while still providing a smooth riding experience. We’ve replaced the cumbersome flywheel with innovative magnetic Resistance for more precise control and reduced weight. The bulky incline motor assembly has been replaced with a combination of adjustable stride and magnetic resistance to more effectively target upper and lower body muscle groups while taking up much less space.

Easy-to-Use Technology

User-friendly touch display tracks, displays, and saves essential work out data, including WATT output, time, distance, calories, RPM, load, speed, and heart rate. Choose between manual mode, preset programs, heart rate controlled programs, or custom programs with 16 levels of resistance. Our Pulse Recovery feature measures how quickly you return to a resting heart rate after each session. Over time, your recovery time will decline, indicating improved cardio health.

Polar Wireless Heart Rate Receiver

Now you can enjoy nonstop heart rate tracking without holding on to a contact sensor while tapping into heart rate controlled programs. The 1280ef features a built-in Polar® wireless heart rate receiver that allows you to wear an optional T31/T34 Non-coded Polar heart rate strap (not included) for continual heart rate feedback while you exercise.
