SixStar Certificate – The Horizon elliptical trainer adhere to a SixStar Certification. These are engineering features that focus on giving the user a more ergonomic experience.
The SixStar features include:
18 Lbs. Flywheel — The weight of the flywheel on the Horizon Evolve 3 contributes to a smooth and natural elliptical motion. An 18 lbs. flywheel is not excessively heavy, but is adequate in providing a smooth stride.
20” Stride Length — This is about standard at this price range. 20” seems to accommodate the majority of elliptical users. If you are very small you may want to consider a machine with a shorter stride length. Conversely, if you are excessively tall you may want to find a machine with a 22” stride length.
Folding Mechanism — With the Horizon Evolve 3 elliptical you can fold it upright, thereby reducing the footprint significantly when not in use. When folded you reduce the length by 28”. The Evolve 3 uses a hydraulic system, making is easy to fold and unfold.
175 lbs. Unit Weight with Simple Assembly – About an average weight for the price. Unless you are excessively heavy your will find that the Horizon Evolve 3 elliptical trainer will feel very solid and stable.
Warranty – Lifetime frame and motor, 3 year parts and 1 year labor. This is typical for this price range.

Passport Player — This virtual feature allows you to simulate running outdoors through famous landscapes. The Passport player lets you connect your elliptical to your TV for larger viewing. This module is sold separately.
The Horizon Evolve 3 elliptical offers a sweet package by combining the SixStar features with their Passport application and digital pass discounts. In particular, we really like that this elliptical has an option to be folded, for those that are limited on storage.
The Horizon Evolve 3 elliptical is one of the top three ellipticals at the $1,200 price range. In addition, it is backed by one of the best customer services in the industry. We can comfortably recommend it for moderate single and multiple users.
