Vision X6200 Folding Elliptical
The Vision X6200 is something of an anomaly in the elliptical world. It’s a folding unit, but it’s also at the top of its line. It has a 19.75” stride and a heavy 24-pound flywheel for smooth motion.
Like most Vision ellipticals, this model is available with Simple, Deluxe, and Premier console options. The consoles vary in their graphic displays and program count.
Elliptical Hits: Nice Features of Vision X6200 Folding Ellipticals
- Ergonomic stride – The Vision X6200 has a long 19.75” stride with a patented footpath that feels natural for most adults.
- Pivoting pedals – Pedals on Vision cross trainers rotate with natural body movement to promote comfort.
- Heavy flywheel – With a 24-pound flywheel, this machine can provide a smooth ride even at the higher resistance levels.
- Durable frame – While some brands use cheap plastic frames, the Vision X6200’s frame is made of heavy gauge welded steel.
- Programming – With three console options, users get 16 to18 programs to combine with 20 resistance levels. The Simple console is aptly named, but the Deluxe and Premier consoles have blue backlit LCD screens and provide more feedback about workouts. With the Premier Vision console, three workout programs can be used interactively with a wireless heart rate monitor.
Elliptical Misses: Where the X6200 Falls Short
- Shorter corporate warranty – This elliptical’s warranty options are for residential and light corporate use (3 hours/day). The home warranty includes 3 years of parts coverage, but the light corporate option is for only a year.
- Fixed stride — Many home ellipticals today have adjustable strides and inclines to help people target a variety of muscle groups. Vision offers these options on its Suspension series of ellipticals, which includes residential and commercial models.
Overall Rating for Vision Elliptical Trainers
The Vision X6200 is a quiet, smooth-running cross trainer that is sized just right for most adults. It’s a good competitor in its price class. The model’s three console options – simple, deluxe, and premier – help customers get just the right amount of machine and programming for their money. An upgrade is Vision’s Suspension series, which has inclines and adjustable strides.
