  1. 7.0 AENarrow Pedal Distance – This is a front drive elliptical trainer that has the pedals close together.  This is to mimic a natural walking motion and reduce stress on the hip joints. The pedals on the 7.0 AE are about as close as you can get with a Q-Factor of 2.6" (6.6 cm)
  2. EX-59Tighter Q-Factor - The pedals are spaced closer together, which provides less strain on the hips.  Many people find this more comfortable as there is less strain and pulling, especially during longer workouts.  We use overlapping foot pedals which puts the Q-Factor at 0.
