The Epic A30E is a discontinued machine with great features, OK quality and no future.
Epic ellipticals are some of the best featured ellipticals you will find on the market. Unfortunately you won't find them on the market for very long. An unfortunate confluence of events is terminating the Epic elliptical lineup. You can still find a few at Dick's Sporting Goods, some at Costco, and other small outlets but you won't be able to get them for very long. Don't worry about that though, there are better machines out their to buy.
