Who Manufacturers EVO Ellipticals?
General Information:EVO machines were built by Smooth Fitness and were available through fitness specialty stores and through the EVO Fitness website. Smooth had lost some of their steam over the past few years and is scaling back to focus on their core strengths which is a very good thing.
Manufacturing Philosophy:Smooth has focused on making their treadmills feature heavy. From the large, stable frames to their patented impact absorption feature, it is hard to get on a Smooth treadmill and not be impressed. Customer support has been a strength but we are alarmed by their current F rating with the BBB.
Company Outlook : Smooth has quickly grown into one of the largest specialty distributors in the US. There is something to be said for being one of the first to the market and their push into the Internet early paid off. Apparently Smooth is finished with the EVO brand.
