    • Balance mass according to the standard of Tiedje: 12 kg Details
      When you compare the products, please mind that some manufacturers define differently the balance mass of their crosstrainers. Therefore, the indications can vary among each other. Besides the weights of flywheel, pulley, and caryying wheel respectively cross and blank discs (levelling discs), the indications of balance mass of some manufacturers consider additionally the weights of pedal arms, handle bars, and other parts. This is dubious in our opinion. We define the balance mass as "total weight of flywheel, pulley, carrying wheel respectively cross and blanc discs", which form the rear balance unit.

The only crosstrainer with an unfixed adjustable stride length

In order to make a quick change between the lengths, there are 5 pre-determined lengths available, in which further adjustments are possible for your personal stride length.

What advantages offer crosstrainers with adjustable stride lengths?

One advantage that an adjustable stride length on crosstrainers and elliptical trainers offer is that it can simulate different running styles. With a short stride length it simulates more a stepper movement, at the longest length it can feel like a sprint. Different muscles groups are also activated depending on which movement you choose. Through these changes of stride length you can vary your training more often, more comprehensive and also more effective.

An adjustable stride length crosstrainer is also perfect for being used by more people with different body types. For example in a multiple persons household (Family or shared household). Also for semi-professional facilities numerous users can train on the cardiostrong Crosstrainer EX90 PLUS. For a comfortable training it is essential that the stride length is adjustable.

A crosstrainer with an epsecially stable construction

The cardiostrong Crosstrainer EX90 PLUS is built with a massive metal frame. Not only does it look good but gives the crosstrainer high stability. Good for two important reasons: The life longevity is significantly increased, even with repetative intensive workouts, and an optimal power transfer is ensured. Even with its heavy weight the cardiostrong Crosstrainer EX90 Plus can be easily moved. Through an optimally designed center of mass, the crosstrainer can be easily lifted at the end and tipped fowards onto the transport wheels for easy transportation.

Due to the high quality production and excellent stability the cardiostrong Crosstrainer EX90 PLUS is suited for semi-professional use.

EX90 Plus: a crosstrainer with all the comforts that a crosstrainer needs

It is not only for the comfort of different body types of the users but in longer training sessions many users find it comfortable to change the grip positions during their training.

I am a tall man - and it can be difficult to find fitness machines in my size - BUT the EX90 Plus works fantastic for me. The length of the steps are perfect and it really helps me to get back in shape - and hopefully lose weight at the same time.

I love this cross trainer, by far the best we have ever purchased. It is expensive but well worth it my option. Very stabile, smooth running and quiet. I would have liked a bit more information on using the console. This cross trainer is suitable for people of all sizes and ages. I'm thrilled with our purchase.
de by klaus on 18.4.2020 5
Ich muss zugegen, ich war schon vor dem Kauf des EX 90 ein großer Sport-Tiedje-Fan. So besitze ich bereits den Ergometer BX 60 und den Crosstrainer EX 60. Mit beiden war ich sehr zufrieden, was ich auch in früheren Rezensionen hier dargelegt habe. Gemäß dem Motto "Das Bessere ist der Feind des Guten" habe ich den EX90... [Read more] Plus vor Ort in einem Sport-Tiedje-Geschäft fast eine Stunde getestet. Schon das ist positiv zu erwähnen, dass man dies ausgiebig machen kann. Da das Training auf dem EX60 eine der letzten sportlichen Betätigungen war, die ich mit meiner Hüft-Arthrose bedenkenlos ausüben konnte, habe ich dann beim Black-Friday-Angebot zugeschlagen und mir den EX90 zugelegt. Denn gerade bei solchen Krankheiten ist Bewegung mit das Wichtigste. Er steht im Wohnbereich in Nähe des Fernsehers, so dass man z.B. beim Anschauen eines Fußballspiels oder mit Kopfhörer und rhythmischen Songs schnell mal 50 bis 60 Minuten hinter sich bringt, ohne dass man merkt, wie schnell die Zeit vergeht. Schön sieht er eigentlich nicht aus, trotz seiner Kompaktheit ist das "futuristische" Design nicht jedermanns Sache. Aber der Zweck heiligt die Mittel. Warum so ein teures Gerät kaufen? 1. Er besitzt einen hohen Aufforderungs- bzw. Motivationscharakter. Schon allein durch seine wuchtige Präsenz und "Ausstrahlung". Da muss man einfach drauf. 2. Man schwebt bzw. läuft - wie jemand anders schrieb - tatsächlich fast wie auf Wolken. Er läuft wirklich sehr leise und - zumeist - fast geräuschlos. Man ist relativ hoch oben, das wirkt irgendwie erhaben. 3. Die Möglichkeit, die Schrittlänge viele Male schrittweise zu verstellen, ist sicher mit das Highlight des EX90 und rechtfertigt in jedem Fall den hohen Preis. Und zwar kann man neben den fünf voreingestellten Positionen noch durch leichtes Tippen auf den entsprechenden Knopf viele Zwischenschrittlängen einstellen. Und tatsächlich merkt man fast bei jedem Verstellen der Schrittlänge, dass sich da im Oberschenken etwas tut und die Muskeln irgendwie anders beansprucht werden. Das motiviert ungemein. 4. Natürlich wären auch die vielen voreingestellten Programme interessant, obwohl ich sie momentan nur selten nutze. Aber die Möglichkeit, bis zu 16mal die Schwierigkeitsstufe zu erhöhen, ist ein weiterer Punkt, der das Gerät ungemein variabel macht. Das Display ist unauffällig und unspektakulär, erfüllt aber voll seinen Zweck. 5. Schließlich steht das Gerät da wie eine Eins. Fest, unverrückbar, ohne Ruckeln und Zuckeln. Da bewegt sich nichts, egal, wie intensiv man aktiv ist. Noch zwei Tipps: a) Sollten zwischenzeitlich Geräusche oder ein Klackern auftreten, wie von anderen beschrieben, dann scheuen Sie sich nicht, den Kundendienst anzurufen. Bei meinem EX60 war das so, und ein Mitarbeiter kam zu mir in die Wohnung und hat das Gerät kostenlos repariert. Auch beim EX90 hatte ich zwischenzeitlich ein Klackern. Jetzt ist es wieder weg. Kommt es wieder, dann lass ich jemanden kommen. Vielleicht steckt in diesen neuen Crosstrainern schon fast zu viel Technik und Elektronik, so dass sie auch für Defekte eher anfällig sind. Aber Sport Tiedje ist da normalerweise sehr kulant. b) Wenn sie das Gerät bereits aufgebaut liefern lassen wollen, dann achten sie darauf, ob es überhaupt durch die Tür passt. Ich habe den sog. Palettenversand für 99,00 Euro hinzugebucht, was bedeutet, dass das Gerät in der Wohnung aufgebaut wird. Für mich die sinnvollste Lösung, wenn man sich den Zusammenbau nicht antun will. Alles in allem ist der EX90 ein wirklich in hohem Maße motivierendes Sportgerät, das ich jetzt in der schweren Corona-Zeit vier- bis fünfmal pro Woche nutze, ohne, dass es mir langweilig wird. Kompakt, robust, stabil, wertig, das zeichnet dieses außergewöhnliche Gerät aus. Man freut sich einfach, es immer und immer wieder zu benutzen, auch wegen der vielen Einstellmöglichkeiten. Besser als viele der Crosstrainer von den Fitnessstudios, in denen ich in den letzten 30 Jahren trainiert habe. Sicherlich einer der besten Crosstrainer der Welt für den Homebereich, das wage ich abschließend zu behaupten. [Show less]

Nachdem ich ca. 5 Jahre auf einem Lifefitness 95xi trainierte, habe ich mir vor ca. 4 Wochen den Crosstrainer Cardiostrong EX90 Plus gekauft und bin begeistert. 1. Das Gerät läuft extremst leise 2. Verstellbare Schrittlänge ist Hammer 3. Sehr stabil 4. Macht süchtig. Der Computer ist ohne Schnickschnack, erfüllt seine... [Read more]n Zweck und arbeitet einwandfrei. Mir persönlich fehlt eine Ablage für Handy / Tablet und die Flaschenhalterung ist nur für 0,5l PET geeignet. Besonderen Dank für die perfekte Beratung und Betreuung (Jens) an die Filiale Bonn. Reibungslose Montage durch Sport Tiedje Service. [Show less]
