Precor is known for quality and great aesthetics.
Precor was the first manufacturer to introduce ellipticals.
Incline ramp is an antiquated feature and difficult to maintain. Users must clean and lubricate weekly.
Precor ellipticals were designed for short users. Therefore, the feel is not good for users over 5'4" in height.
