Detailed Overview

On the hunt for a new elliptical, but worried where it will fit into your home? The SpaceSaver SE7i is the entry-level model in NordicTrack’s rear-drive series for 2021, followed only by the SpaceSaver SE9i. Both models have foldable frames and transport wheels for easy storage and repositioning after workouts, as well as 18-inch footpaths, and 18-pound flywheels, as well as 22 levels of silent magnetic resistance. Although both machines are iFit-enabled, the SE7i is lower priced primarily because it’s a bring-your-own-touchscreen elliptical trainer. It does have 10-inch HD Smart touchscreen, while the SE9i has a 14-inch HD Smart touchscreen.

Other key specs for the SE7i are Bluetooth audio capability and Google Maps technology, along with automatic trainer control, a workout fan, a water bottle holder and a two-year parts warranty. Other big benefits include a free 30-day membership with iFit’s Family Membership plan, normally priced at $39/month.
