      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 Taurus FX9.9 Cross Trainer with adjustable incline from the Taurus 9.9 fitness equipment line is a glowing example of quality, in terms of excellent movement and stability. Being able to adjust the position makes it so much easier to vary the intensity and focus of the muscle training!

Incline is (good) for A... Gluteus maximus

The Taurus FX9.9 is one of the few cross trainers on the market that has an adjustable incline. An adjustable incline offers two major advantages. Firstly, in addition to the resistance level, there is a second option for setting the training intensity. It is much more demanding to run up a slope than on the flat. Secondly, the muscular focus is a little different. As with climbing stairs, the high-incline cross trainer trains the gluteus maximus, i.e. the bottom, more intensively. So if you want to lose weight and have a firm bottom, the Taurus FX9.9 Cross Trainer is the right choice for you.

Exceptionally high quality of movement and ergonomics

You should of course feel comfortable when training on the cross trainer. The FX9.9 Cross Trainer does an excellent job of the three points that are largely responsible for a comfortable workout: stride length, stride width and elliptical height.

  • The stride length is a generous 56 cm. A longer stride is usually found to be much more comfortable when exercising. With a stride length of 56 cm, the cross trainer is suitable for people who are between 160 and 210 cm tall.
  • At just 3.3 cm, the stride width is very small. A narrow stride width is much more comfortable and ergonomic, and hip misalignments can also be avoided. Just test it for yourself when you walk: your feet are close together.
  • The stride and elliptical heights are also very comfortable at just 14 cm. Along with the stride length, the result is a gliding feeling that feels good AND is even easier on the joints.

The foot plates / pedals are non-slip and nice and large. The fitness device also features multi-grips for additional ergonomic comfort. Everyone will find the optimal hand position, regardless of their height. This makes the FX9.9 perfect for fitness rooms where several people train, for example: in a family home or a professional fitness studio in a hotel or workplace.

Lots of comfort functions: this is how fun training can be!

Operation is quick and easy

The display of the FX9.9 can be easily operated with a dial. Programmes can be selected quickly, and target values (e.g. watts or calories) can be quickly changed. When you have configured all the settings and the programme starts, why not watch a film on your tablet while you exercise? Just put it in the tablet holder. Or you can connect your mobile device to the free training app, iConsole+.

The little extras make the Taurus FX9.9 Cross Trainer really great

As well as the simple controls and tablet holder, there are some other features that make the FX9.9 so good. For example, the display can be swivelled, and you can control the settings for the incline (10 levels) and resistance (32 levels) on the console or the handles in the middle. These handles also have hand pulse sensors, so you can choose whether you want to measure your pulse there or using a chest strap.

There is also a drinking bottle holder attached to the console mast. You don't want to get dehydrated during a strenuous training session. Incidentally, the FX9.9 can be easily adjusted after training. There are two sturdy wheels at the front and lifting handle at the back.

The Taurus 9.9 fitness equipment series: welcome to the family

Strong performance, high stability and comfortable, ergonomic training – this is what the new Taurus fitness equipment family stands for. The family consists of two cross trainers (a front wheeler, a back wheeler), a recumbent bike, an ergometer and a range of treadmills. The devices are coordinated in function and design and, together, they are the first choice for every high-quality fitness room.

Good movements and mechanical sturdyness
0 persons found this review helpful
Really comfortable movements and solid mechanical quality that feels nice - a bit like driving a mercedes-benz. The touch edition with a built in tablet is great conceptuallly with good online media access options but the actual training function interface is very buggy with seriously poor error handling that leads to regular need for rebooting. For instance if pulse rate is exceeded or RPM exceeded during a fitness test it just aborts. That is quite frustrating. External bluetooth heart strap works very smooth. Finally I have not been able to find any app on IoS that actually supports receiving the bluetooth data stream fro the FX9.9 and putting into the apple universe to track my progress over time. So in conclusion - from my perspective: Great machinery and comfortable to use but also significant need for a complete firmware overhaul to recover and deliver the expected functionality as specified in sales materials. Finally if compatible IoS apps exist for this specific cross trainer - guidance and pointers to such should be part of the manuals - right now those apps pointed to from the user manual do not integrate or communicate with Taurus:-/...

Ein sehr wertiger und durchdachter Crosstrainer- schon bei der Montage sieht man das hier nicht gespart würde. Ergonomie, Verstellbarkeit und Design...jeden Cent wert.

Ich habe mir das Gerät heute ausgiebig in der Filiale in Bremen angesehen und ausprobiert und dann gleich bestellt. Hilfreich waren auch die Bewertungen die bereits abgegeben waren. Ich hoffe das es schnell geliefert wird, danach gibt es dann eine endgültige Beurteilung. Übrigens sehr freundliche und kompetente Beratung in Bremen. Ich freue mich drauf…

batte ogni concorrente

Bellissimo crosstrainer al quale non manca proprio nulla. Da tempo lo confronto con altri sul mercato e devo dire vince su tutti: solidità, consolle intuitiva, prestante nonostante la "leggera" inclinazione. Ottimo attrezzo per varie stature dal principiante all'atleta più esigente. Personalmente fare anche il passo variabile aumentando un pò il prezzo ovviamente e così assolutamente diventerebbe the best total body.
Tolles Gerät mit kleine Mängeln
2 persons found this review helpful
Wir haben den Crosstrainer beim uns im Betrieb. Er wird regelmäßig genutzt und macht viel Spaß. Entertainment und die verschiedenen Programme sowie die Steigungsfunktion machen den CT zu einem kurzweiligen Trainingsgerät. Die Stabilität könnte besser sein und auch das verbaute Plastik wirkt qualitativ minderwertig. Ein ständiges Klacken habe ich auch nach längerem Einstellen der Standfüße nicht weg- bekommen. Die Plastikabdeckung der oberen Gelenke musste ich mit Papiertüchern festklemmen, damit die nicht bei jeder Umdrehung an das Metal stoßen und auch Geräusche machen. Das Display ist leider nicht entspiegel und blendet stark. Man kann sich aber mit Entspiegelungsfolie behelfen, was die gute Bedienbarkeit des Displays nicht beeinträchtigt. Die Verbindung über WLAN und Bluetooth funktionieren sehr gut. Netfix & Co. funktionieren einwandfrei. Die Verbindung mit dem Interent wird relativ schnell aufgebaut. Mein Brustgurt von Polar wird sofort erkannt. Der Aufbau des CT war aufgrund der guten Aufbauanleitung leicht und dauerte mit 2 Personen (Alleine wird es schwierig) 45 Minuten. Wegen der kleinen Mängel gebe ich dem Taurus FX9.9 touch 4 Sterne. ... [Read more]

Ein schöner stabiler Crosstrainer der jeden Euro Wert ist. Durch die vielen Möglichkeiten der Einstellungen ist für jeden das passende Programm dabei. Eindeutige Kaufempfehlung... Die Beratung in der Filiale Duisburg war auch topp...

Alles in allem sehr stabiler Trainer mit vielen Extras. Die elektrisch verstellbare Steigungsfunktion hebt das Gerät von allen anderen Mitbewerbern ab. In den Trainingsprogrammen wechselt Steigung und Bremswirkung minütlich, das sorgt für ein spaßiges Training. Es sind mehr als 30 Programme mit der Touchconsole verfügbar. Aufgrund der stabilen Bauweise und der stark variierenden Intensität der Trainings wird man für lange Zeit Freude an diesem Gerät haben. Auch wenn der Preis erstmal hoch erscheinen mag, bekommt man ein Gerät welches in Stabilität, Innovation (Steigungsfunktion voll automatisch), und Extras zu punkten weiß.... [Read more]
