The Matrix E5Xc Elliptical Review — Simply the Best

Today the holy grail was delivered to us here at the DOJO. A Matrix E5Xc Elliptical was brought in for us to set up and deliver to a client near our workshop. I’d seen and gotten a chance to work out on one of these at a recent trade show and was highly impressed by it. Getting to review one up close confirmed everything I’ve expected to see in an Elliptical from Matrix. I’ve worked on the full sized Matrix E5X Ellipticals in the past (and have owned one with much pride) and the more compact E5Xc Elliptical lives up to the legacy of its big brother. Johnson Tech and Matrix continue their award-winning streak with their latest elliptical offering.

If you are looking for the smoothest elliptical ride on the market, then you need look no further than the Matrix E5Xc. With the same 21″ stride and feel of the E5X, the Matrix E5Xc Elliptical is the smoothest, most comfortable and lowest impact elliptical workout you’ll find on any elliptical at any price. If you’ve ever been on an elliptical from Matrix you already know what I’m talking about.

With the highly cushioned, articulating footpads on the E5XC Elliptical, even someone with knee and ankle problems will be able to exercise on it.

UPDATE: This is a very old model. Check out the newest Matrix ellipticals here.

Let’s run down the other features of the Matrix E5Xc Elliptical: forward & reverse resistance, 20 levels of resistance, contact and wireless heart rate monitoring, 7 programs, a great LCD screen, quick keys for controlling your workout on the handlebars, a solid 285 pounds and an optional TV screen add on. Add to that being about 13 inches shorter than the old E5X and you’ve got easily the most impressive commercial elliptical available on the market today.

Finally, the Matrix E5Xc Elliptical is just plain cool looking. These things are built and designed for the 21st Century and beyond — it’s functional modern art at its finest.

If you’ve got the budget for the best, make sure to check out the Matrix E5Xc. You won’t be disappointed. The Matrix E5Xc Elliptical sells for about $4795 which generally includes free delivery.

For being the best there is, the Treadmill Sensei gives the E5Xc Elliptical from Matrix 5 Golden Buddahs out of 5. Keep up the good work!
