Reebok Super Ramp RL 7.0 Elliptical
Reebok’s Super Ramp RL 7.0 Elliptical Trainer supports a healthy 19–21″ adjustable stride and provides the challenge of an extra-steep workout ramp. This crosstrainer’s combination of stride lengths, incline angles and ample programming makes results come quickly. It’s made the Super Ramp RL 7.0 a big seller in the sub-$1000 elliptical trainer category. Nonetheless, reviews aren’t always glowing. Shoddy parts have been mentioned in many complaints.

Customer Comments About the Super Ramp RL 7.0 Elliptical
Customer reviews of the Reebok Super Ramp range from very disappointed to delighted. Reviews tend to be more positive when people bought the product on sale and it arrived without complications. Otherwise, they tend to say that they expected too much for the price.
When all goes well the RL 7.0 operates like a champ and earns great reviews. The ramp and sound system are hits and resistance is reportedly smooth. Somewhat commonly though, this item has reportedly been shipped without all required parts or was otherwise not operable.
Another drawback in some people’s opinions is the machine’s large size. It’s 6’8” long and can’t be folded for storage like some other large elliptical trainers. On the other hand, the hefty base contributes to this elliptical trainer’s high weight capacity.
Our Overall Review of the Reebok Super Ramp 7.0
It’s not easy to wholeheartedly recommend a product when it gets so many complaints. We rated this trainer slightly above average because some customers are very satisfied. Moreover, the long adjustable stride and the 40-degree ramp are exceptional features for a sub-$1000 trainer.
If this elliptical makes your short list, remember to research prices for the ProForm 1050E too before making a purchase. The ProForm model is virtually identical to the Reebok RL 7.0 and might have a better price. Both Reebok and ProForm are owned by ICON Health & Fitness and are born in the same factories.
We also recommend looking at some top-selling competitors that cost just a bit more. For about $1000 you can get a better value from brands like LiveStrong and Yowza.
