Precor EFX 524i Elliptical and Precor 534i Elliptical vs. Matrix

Precor EFX 524i Elliptical & Precor EFX  534i Elliptical VS. Matrix E5x Elliptical

See below why Matrix out performs the Precor club ellipticals.

              

Smooth & Most Natural Feel with a 21" Stride Length vs. 18" Stride The average person’s walking stride is 23". The closer an elliptical approximates a user’s normal stride length, the more natural it will feel. This is why we get comments all the time about how natural ours feels versus the choppiness of others.
Superior Dual Action Performance Our front drive elliptical design allows for a ground up design of the dual action feature. Our dual action arms move at a near constant rate of acceleration which the body interprets as being smoother. The Precor dual action arms were added after the fact when they saw the market preferred dual action. (Note: There is NO RAMP with the Precor Dual Action - They lose this feature!)
Full Commercial Warranty 524i / 534i Do not have warranties for clubs - limited to 4 hours of use per day. Matrix E5x has a full club warranty without daily hour limitations.
Club Grade vs. Vertical Grade The 524i / 534i series is primarily aimed at the vertical market, with vertical features. For example, Matrix has Hand Grip Pulse, and dual wheels for the pedal arms. The more robust Matrix has 350 lbs. of materials vs. only 207 lbs for the Precor Vertical Ellipses.
