Diamondback 1260Ef elliptical trainerDiamondback 1260Ef Elliptical Trainer

MSRP: $2,599

Bottom Line: This front drive elliptical machine is a visual knockoff of Octane but the feel is not there. Why Diamondback would waste their time making a unit like this when they have two excellent rear drive ellipticals is a mystery.

  • Nice electronics on this elliptical.

  • Wide, comfortable pedals.

  • The feel is not even close to their rear drive ellipticals.

  • This look is really bad.
