Kettler Unix E Elliptical Review: In this product report we would like to introduce the KETTLER Unix E in detail. It is a further development of the Satura series.

With the Kettler Unix E, it is immediately noticeable that it is a bit slimmer in design. But more about that later. We will go into the most important functions and features in the Kettler Unix E Review. In addition, you will also learn the most important things about the construction, build quality and performance. This should give you a comprehensive overall impression of the elliptical trainer before you buy it, which will help you with your purchase decision.

  • Compact
  • German Seal of Quality
  • Flywheel Weight of 48.5 pounds for an easy and fluid motion

  • The Stride Length at 16 inches may not be enough for taller users

Kettler Unix E: All functions at a glance

In the following, we will discuss the most important functions, features and facts of the Unix E. For example, the Kettler Unix E is equipped with a drive wheel and a longitudinal ribbed belt. Thereby, an even concentricity is guaranteed which is definitely noticeable during the workout.

The integrated flywheel has a weight of 48.5 lbs (22 kg). Due to the high weight it is much easier to shift into the higher gears and increase the training load. This also improves the concentricity.

Furthermore, the Kettler Unix E has a calibrated induction brake system. As there is no wear and tear, it does not have to be maintained. A speed objective eddy current brake was integrated. The resistor is electronically adjusted, so that the individual resistors can be called up comfortably one after the other. The nice thing is that such a certificate is included with every elliptical trainer. This way you know for sure that the elliptical trainer has been calibrated correctly.

Due to the electronic adjustment, the resistance is always automatically adjusted to the load profile and heart rate settings. This guarantees that you always run correctly according to your requirements.

Furthermore, the training computer can also be adjusted to your own body size. This means that if you are, for example, particularly tall, you can adjust the console to your own height. Thus you can see something from every angle of inclination, no matter if you are small or big.

The display is also equipped with a backlight. So you can train with the Kettler Unix E even if it gets darker or it starts to dawn.

All important data like pulse, time, distance can be read off at any time without any problems. Additionally it also has a Heart-Rate-Light-Function. This is a visual heart rate display with which the current heart rate is shown.

The colored display tells you whether you are training in the optimal heart rate zone or whether it is above or below it. The colours for this are blue, green and red.

Unlike the Kettler CTR4, there is also a target zone training. Here you can set goals beforehand, for example a certain weight reduction or to train your endurance.

This keeps you motivated and you train more intensively. In total there are 4 profiles that can be saved. This allows other people in the house to train on the elliptical trainer.

The first impression of the KETTLER Unix E

All in all, once it has been assembled, it makes a very stable and steady impression. Moreover, it appears to be of a very high quality and at first sight, it can definitely keep up with the common devices of the fitness gym.

It looks very slim and here, the Unix E definitely stands out positively against other comparable models like the Satura P. Furthermore, the elliptical trainer is very space-saving. No wonder, it really takes up very little space with its dimensions of 138 x 58 x 155 cm.

All in all, it has a good motion sequence and the training on it generally looks very natural. This is due to the stride length of 15 inches (39 cm) and the ellipse height of 8 inches (20 cm).

However, you should make sure that the elliptical trainer is not loaded with more than 330 lbs (150 kg). Otherwise the machine can be damaged.

At first sight it makes a slim and very well thought-out impression.

Kettler Unix E

Our opinion on the Unix E Kettler: an unbeatable elliptical trainer

Both compact and efficient, the Unix E elliptical trainer is an almost elitist fitness equipment as its qualities are numerous: a heavy flywheel of 22 kg (48.5 pounds), electromagnetic braking as precise as reactive or an ergometer function will offer you an exceptional pedaling comfort. Your movements will be particularly linear and natural thanks to its high quality double ball bearings.

➡️ Designed for intensive use at home, the Kettler Unix E elliptical trainer has been designed to meet the most demanding fitness objectives.

➡️ Perfect Balance between comfort and efficiency

➡️ An ergometer function to better target your goals

➡️ Heavy 48.5 lbs (22 kg) flywheel for smooth, smooth and silent pedalling.

➡️ Packed with a nice ellipse height of 8 inches (20 cm).

➡️ Electromagnetic braking system particularly fluid and linear and without friction for an easier maintenance and a perennial use over the sessions. You will be able to control the level of resistance, in steps of 5 Watts, electronically directly from the dashboard of your bike.

➡️ From 25 to 400 Watts, the ergometer function will allow you to concentrate your work on a target zone defined according to your objectives. You will be able to target a variety of exercises, from improving your endurance to strengthening your muscles. All you have to do is change the resistance for effective work.

➡️ Cardiac sensors located on the handlebar grips of the fixed handlebars to measure your heart rate and adapt it to your objectives. An ear cup is also included with your elliptical trainer. For a safe exercise, an audible and visual signal will warn you if your heart rate exceeds the authorized heart rate threshold.

Kettler Unix E Elliptical Review Conclusion

The elliptical trainer Kettler Unix E is especially user-friendly when getting on: The extra deep entry allows a comfortable workout even with hip problems. The HeartRateLight makes it easier for Kettler to control the training and guides the user through the different training programs. All “E-models” have a USB interface on the front of the display. Here you can upload and manage training data in the KettFit Portal. Those who get the World Tours 2.0 software as an accessory can ride on 3D aerial photographs and even arrange a race with other users. The new Unix E elliptical trainer starts with a real eddy current brake in the current model range. This ensures a high and constant braking force which makes a balanced workout possible in all watt ranges. The elliptical trainer’s elliptical motion sequence is extremely easy on the joints and the large muscle groups. All in all it is safe to say that we recommed this elliptical trainer for almost anyone. The only downside that could put some buyers off is the stride length: if you are below 5′ 7″ (170 cm) there shouldn’t be a problem but if you are above 5′ 7″ (1m 70cm) it is best to look for other ellipticals with a longer stride.
