Product Description


Enjoy top-of-the-line features, technology, and comfort while working out in the home with the Diamondback Fitness 1260Ef elliptical trainer. The 1260EF is equipped with an electronically controlled magnetic brake that provides 20 levels of smooth, fluid resistance. As a result, it's easy to find the perfect resistance level for your needs, whether you want to warm up before hitting the weights or challenge yourself with a serious cardio burn. Plus, elliptical trainers offer a diverse, efficient workout, with a smooth, natural leg stride and a consistent push/pull arm action combining to sculpt your legs, strengthen your arms, and improve your overall body tone. Elliptical machines are also popular for cardiovascular training, as they provide a low-impact alternative to walking and running.

The 1260EF offers plenty of workout flexibility, with a cutting-edge console that supports 13 preset programs, including manual, random, interval, hill climb, sprint, target HR, HR interval, fat burner, HR hill, cardio, glute burner, quad builder, and total trainer. It's also a breeze to track your workout progress thanks to the multiple data displays, which show your time, segment time, watts, intensity level, incline, percentage of max HR, calories burned, calories per minutes, speed, pulse, RPM, and distance. And users who are monitoring their workouts for maximum efficiency will appreciate the dual heart rate options: a Polar-compatible heart rate receiver that straps to the chest and handgrips with built-in heart rate contacts. Other features include a built-in reading rack, a 19-inch stride length, a welded heavy-gauge steel frame with an anti-rust powder coating, sealed ball bearings and permanently lubricated polymer bearings, Krayton rubber comfort grips, a green LED dot matrix profile, and a weight capacity of 325 pounds.

Product Description

Its 15 workout programs and 20 resistance levels make it a perfect starter elliptical for fitness newbies or a challenging force for advanced athletes who want to push themselves beyond their regular paces. Crafted with a universal 19" stride, the 1260Ef is spec'd with an electronic programmable incline feature that will take you from the flats to the hills within seconds. Expect top-of-the-line features, technology and comfort in our most exclusive elliptical. It features an incline motor, electronically adjustable ride, smooth-as-silk electromagnetic brakes with more fluid resistance and patented linkage design exclusive to Diamondback. The console's programming delivers 13 programs, custom workouts and the most advanced heart rate interactive programs. Combine all this with comfort footpads/grips and a value price, and you have elliptical excellence all the way. Advantages of the Elliptical Trainer Elliptical machines have become one of the most popular cardiovascular machines because they provide a high-intensity, total body workout plus a low-impact alternative to walking and running. Favored by people who want to burn the most calories in the shortest time. The smooth, natural leg stride , push/pull arm action is optimum for sculpting legs, strengthening arms and improving overall body tone. By working both legs and arms, your heart rate elevates more quickly which encourages your body to burn calories faster and more efficiently. This also results in a lower perceived rate of exertion even though you are burning more calories. Forward and back motions provide better workout results. This allows you to work different sets of muscle groups in your legs, hamstrings versus quads, which adds up to more calories burned, more muscles toned and an overall better body workout. You get a lower impact workout resulting in less overall stress on your knees, hips and back. Excellent for the older population or those who are more easily prone to sports injury.

It's very smooth, very quiet, and feels very solid.
Jeff in Texas
In reality, I ordered this product on a Friday night and the product was in my possession on the next Wednesday afternoon.
M. Stephens
The assembly was easy - it took an hour perhaps or less.

I bought this machine after reading the Consumer Report ratings. I am a regular user of ellipticals at my gym and I really like the Life Fitness machines they have there but they were too big for my space, so I went for the Diamondback.

This is a very well made machine and I love the incline feature ... but at 5'6" and with long arms I find that the arms are uncomfortably far away and if I work out using them my back and neck end up aching. Now, one of the reasons I mix the elliptical into my running routine is to give my arms a bit of a workout, so not being able to use them is a bit sad for me. If you are significantly taller than 5'6" I would highly recommend this machine.

As mentioned in other reviews, assembly isn't that easy - but I was able to do it by myself with a bit of time. Although something in the electrical wires must be a bit loose as sometimes I have to tap (okay hit) the control panel to get it to turn on and I fear that sooner or later I'm going to have to take the whole thing apart to fix this which would be a pain.

My final word of caution is that this is large and heavy which is one of the reasons why it feels so solid when you use it but it is a challenge to move - especially upstairs. Even in it's unassembled state the main part of the unit is HUGE. I had two 200+ guys moving mine for me and they still dropped it and dented my wood floor.

Price$$ Five Stars
I've been wanting to buy an elliptical for months now. Did my research on consumer reports, shopped around. I must admit that I was a little nervous about buying such a large purchase through Amazon, but I'm glad I did. I noticed the price dropped to $1699 from $1899 and that was the motivation I needed to pull the trigger.

Shipping Five Stars
I elected to do the free shipping option. My impression was that this unit would not ship for 3-5 days and that it would probably take another 5 days to get to me, so I did not expect this unit to arrive for 1.5 to 2 weeks. In reality, I ordered this product on a Friday night and the product was in my possession on the next Wednesday afternoon. 3 business days is awesome in my book, especially when it's free. I live in the southeast, so not sure if your results would be the same if you live elsewhere. If anything, this was too quick, because the expected time frame was going to be that Friday and it came 2 days earlier. If you are trying to take off work to be available for the shipment, this could be a problem. The elliptical came in a crate and is too much to handle for one person. You need at least 2 strong guys to help you move this unit into your home. I was able to slide it into my garage and uncrate from there. Even disassembled, the base part of this unit is really heavy. I had to get a friend to help me move it up one level of stairs.

Assembly 4 Stars
As hinted above, this unit is not fully assembled. I would like to think I am handy, but this assembly could be a little tricky. Here are the things that tripped me up.

First, there is a rear foor stablizer bar that needs to be installed.

I purchased the elliptical machine through Amazon on Nov 6th, 2009. I got it set up a couple of weeks later. Absolutely loved the workouts and smooth, quiet movement of this elliptical machine. In mid January the electronics went haywire the machine lights up but we have no control over program, resistance or incline. I have left 3 phone messages with Diamondback. In addition, I have now sent 5 emails through the website. Each time, I received an auto response that someone will get back to me asap which I am beginning to think is probably never. DO NOT BUY THIS ELLIPTICAL OR ANY OTHER DIAMONDBACK PRODUCTS as they do not stand behind the warranty.

Our elliptical was delivered two weeks ago and we haven't been able to use it yet. No matter what program is selected, it runs for five seconds and then goes into "pause" mode. I called Diamondback. Though it was during their business hours, no one answered at technical support. I got transferred around several times, finally to a destination that just hung up on me. After about three days of this, I got snippy with the phone operator and finally got a human being on the phone in the technical support department.

After describing the problem, he said it sounded like a problem with a sensor on the wiring. He asked me where I bought it, and I told him Amazon. He asked who assembled it, and I told him I did. He said that I should check the wiring connections before having a service technician come out, because if it turned out to be a problem that occurred in the assembly, I'd have to pay for the service call.

I started taking the elliptical apart to check the wiring connections, but stopped when it became clear that it would be hard to do so without running the risk of damaging something. For instance, to inspect the wiring connections, you have to remove the screws that secure the console mast cover. But the screws are covered by a rubber mat in the console mast cover that is stuck down with adhesive. You have to remove the mats to remove the mast cover to get at the wiring connections. But I can't get the mats off without damaging them or the console mast cover. (At a minimum, the instructions should tell you not to stick the mats down until you know the thing is working correctly.) So now I have to call Diamondback to get a service technician to come out. I wonder how long that will take, and how much it will cost.
