How long will the Proform Carbon E7 last?

Well, we know how many years of Ifit you have to buy to get your free Proform Carbon E7 elliptical. That’s 3 years of Ifit’s family plan so you're probably hoping this elliptical is going to last that long. Well, we always start with the manufacturer's warranty to gauge any fitness equipment’s expected life span. While we have a problem with the "free" nature of this elliptical from a marketing standpoint, the factory parts warranty is two years, so you have confidence in iFit lasting 3 years but not the parts you use to incorporate your interactive technology. Seems like an easy fix, extend the warranty Icon on your parts for this sales gimmick. Otherwise, this doesn’t make any sense. The build of this Proform Carbon E7 is pretty nice in this price range and honestly shouldn't give you any problems providing you start with a correct build. If you are not an extremely large person this elliptical when coupled with the nice sized flywheel and good build should provide the user with several good years. If it breaks after two years you can always stream iFit on your cellphone or tablet while you're waiting for Icon to send you someone to fix your Proform Carbon E7.

Brief Overview

The Proform Carbon E7 is a front-drive total-body elliptical. This is a residential elliptical that at its core is an interactive workout machine. In fact, you can get it for free now. Ahh yes, everybody really loves free stuff. Like free college, free healthcare now free ellipticals. Well, there is nothing really free in life and this Carbon E7 is no exception. To get this elliptical for free you will have to subscribe to the Icon’s iFit family plan for 3 years which comes in at $1403. Hmm, we wonder what happens when your free ellipticals iFit subscription runs out. Well, we will explore that a little later. Therefore the Proform Carbon E7 has placed third in Treadmill Doctors 2021 Best Buy List for Ellipticals in the $1000-$1499 price range.

Overall Quality

The Proform Carbon E7 has a decent build and you will notice its heft when getting this elliptical out of the box. This is an eye-catching front-drive total-body elliptical that comes with a nice looking 7-inch touchscreen, a pair of speakers, and a CoolAire fan. The Carbon E7 has a nice array of resistance levels and a fair amount of elevation for you to choose from during your workout. The Silent Magnetic Resistance should be smooth for most users when coupled with the 25 LB flywheel, providing they are not extremely large. The cushioned adjustable pedals should be comfortable for most individuals. The moveable handles are decently constructed and fairly comfortable as are the fixed EKG heart rate grips. <br/> The Proform Carbon E7 has a decent build and you will notice its heft when getting this elliptical out of the box.

Conclusion

In conclusion, the Proform Carbon E7 is a nice looking front-drive total-body elliptical. This Proform comes with a nice sized flywheel that when coupled with Icon's Silent Magnetic Resistance should provide most users a smooth and quiet workout. This Carbon E7 has a nice range of elevations to choose from and the oversized pedals are comfortable. Both the moveable arms and fixed heart rate grips are comfortable and easy to use. The 7-inch touchscreen is attractive and has a good picture. It comes with 3 years of iFit but after that, we have not heard a definitive answer of how many programs will come embedded with this Proform. At one point it was 50 preloaded workouts that can be accessed thru WIFI, recently we have heard less. Couple the uncertainty with the cost of iFit’s expense and that’s your decision. There are certainly more than enough features to like on this Proform elliptical to justify its expense. We wish the warranty was longer but is, unfortunately, par for the course in this price range. You weigh the good verse the bad and you will understand why this Proform Carbon E7 takes the third-place spot for Treadmill Doctors 2021 Best Buy List for Ellipticals in the $1000-$1499 price range.
