Exclusive to Precor, the EFX 5.25 model features CrossRamp workout technology. CrossRamp allows you to alter the height of the elliptical path your foot travels.
Also known as variable stride geometry, the technology allows you to focus on a specific muscle group or all major lower-body muscle groups, so you can work the muscles you want, when you want.
Unlike the Precor 5.23, which is very similar to the EFX 5.25, CrossRamp is automatically operated and therefore easier to use on this model.
Incline is available from 15 to 25 degrees. The handlebars are not fixed which allows you to move them during the workout and target upper body muscles as well.
The ramp is produced out of welded steel, covered with a black powder coat finish.
Precor’s patented, low-impact EFX motion is smooth and natural, providing the lowest rate of perceived exertion of any cardio exercise system to make your workouts more comfortable, according to Precor.
The patented motion allows your heels to remain in contact with foot pedals, reducing muscle and tendon stress.
16 levels of resistance are available on the Precor EFX 5.25 though the manufacture does not necessarily define the exact stride length of the elliptical.
Last but not least, the Precor EFX 5.25 features reversible pedal rotation, so you can go backward or forward. In terms of extras the Precor EFX 5.25 is fairly limited with no music capabilities and no workout fan.
