NordicTrack SpaceSaver SE7i Elliptical Review

What characterizes the NordicTrack SpaceSaver SE7i Elliptical machine is the ability to move the handle bars. This makes it that much easier to store the equipment. All you will need to do is fold them back and make use of the caster feels to gently move it into position.

This machine comes with a fly wheel that weighs just 18 pounds which does a good job at providing that smooth operation. With a stride length of 18 inches you can gain control of your workout to reach your fitness levels.

With the specialized space saving design, you can lift the equipment vertically and place it against a wall. To increase resistance, you have the option of adjusting the angle of incline to up to 8 degrees. During use, the silent magnetic resistance operation means that you can go about your business without interrupting the rest of the house hold.

This is not all. The NordicTrack SpaceSaver SE7i Elliptical machine comes with up to 22 levels of resistance to help you make progress in your training for that well toned physique.  With a total maximum user weight off 325 pounds, you can use with virtually every member of your household making it great fun.

To keep you well stabilized when exercising, make use of the soft touch grips. They can be used by people of different heights. You can adjust the pedals to better suit your foot size for that comfortable training. On the grip there are inbuilt sensors for detecting the heart rate completely eliminating the need for straps and wires.

Convenience is enhanced with the water bottle holder that is strategically located for easy access. When you finally get the machine home, it’s amazing how easy it is to assemble. Just a few guidelines from your user manual are you good to go.

To keep you motivated throughout the training, you can take advantage of the 24 workout programs. Simply switch on from one level to the next when ready. You will not have to leave your cool music behind with the integrated Smartphone and tablet holder.

The warranty gives you a life time cover on the frame, 1 year on the labor but up to 2 years o the parts. With the 5 inch display and control unit, you can keep track of your statistics including the heart rate, time, distance and speed.

Things we liked on our NordicTrack SpaceSaver SE7i Elliptical

  • Easy to assemble. It will only take 15 minutes and you are ready to use
  • Easy on your lower back thanks to the rear wheel design
  • iFit technology provides for an interactive display
  • you can adjust the incline to 8 degrees
  • space saving design, easy to fold

Things we didn’t like on our NordicTrack SpaceSaver SE7i Elliptical

  • The stride length is non-adjustable and too short
  • The flywheel is not heavy meaning that the ride is not completely smooth
  • 5 inch display screen is quite small
  • There is no wireless pulse sensor.


While the NordicTrack SpaceSaver SE7i Elliptical trainer is a model of space saving efficiency, it doesn’t come with many of the features found in higher priced elliptical machines.

It is however much gentler on your pockets and when used correctly will get the job done.  Compare this to the more expensive NordicTrack SpaceSaver SE9i model here.
