When Octane introduced their new elliptical line a few years ago they launched with the flagship Q45e elliptical and the “entry level” Q35 elliptical trainer. This review covers the Q35…
As I mentioned in my review of the Octane Q45 (which I own) Octane has made some good machines here.
Although the Octane Q35 and Octane Q45 share the same front drive design and elliptical motion, the Q35 isn’t a stripped down version of the Q45 but a different animal all together.
The q35 is a fixed length stride elliptical with no wireless heart rate control option and none of the workout features of the higher end machines, yet this elliptical still costs around $2000!
Octane has realized the shortcomings of the Q35 and are phasing this model out in favor of the Octane Q37 series.
Octane q35 Elliptical Trainer Key Features and Specs
- fixed stride length of 20.5″
- natural feeling elliptical motion
- 20 levels of magnetic resistance
- low step in height and 2″ pedal spacing
- 300 pound user weight capacity
The Octane q35 elliptical is an elliptical trainer that you should avoid buying in this price range.
Either step up to the better Q37 or Q45E and get the wireless heart rate control and adjustable stride length or get the better Sole e95 elliptical and save yourself $400 bucks.
