Overall Rating for the BladeZ X3 Home Trainer

The X3 is a good choice for people seeking a simple, low-cost elliptical trainer with heart rate control and other programming. It’s large enough and durable enough to accommodate taller and heavier users, and customers get five years of parts protection.

The more expensive models in this series, such as the X6, are very similar to the X3 base unit but have extra features such as longer strides, adjustable pedals, and built-in TVs.
