Yowza Largo or Yowza Bonita?
~~Side-By-Side Elliptical Comparison Review~~
Stride Length: The first round is a tie as both have a fixed stride length of 18”.
Resistance Levels: In terms of resistance levels, the two are tied again at 16. The Yowza Largo has the electro-magnetic system while the Bonita has the Servo Motor Direct Drive.
Max Ramp: It is another tie between the two as they both have an incline/ramp feature. However, they did not indicate how far the angle of the incline goes up.
Built In Programs: The two are tied in the built-in programs as they both offer 12 each which is within the average given their price.
Notable Features: In the bells and whistles category, the two are tied since they are equipped with identical features. They have the Surefit self-pivoting pedals, a pair of speakers, endurance programs, and 9 user programs.
These two can also let you do reverse strides. What’s more, the two are compact with 51” footprint length.
Parts Warranty: The two are tied yet again. This time, they have the same parts warranty offer of 3 years each which is considered to be average for models that belong in the $1000 and $1500 price range.
Labor Warranty: When it comes to labor warranty, the two are tied with 1 year each. Take advantage of this as labor costs can get pretty expensive.
Machine Weight: In terms of machine weight, the two are tied yet again. They both weigh at 121 lbs each. Remember that the heavier the machine, the studier it is.
Machine User Weight Capacity: In this category, the two are tied again with 331 lbs each for maximum user weight capacity. However, for safety purposes, there should only be a 100-lb difference between the actual weight and the max user weight capacity.
Money Back Guarantee: In terms of money back guarantee, the two are tied as they both offer 60 days each.
Conclusion: If you look at the categories, there seems to be no difference between the two. However, it is in their appearance and the upper body workout that they have makes the big difference. The Largo is your typical elliptical with handlebars moving forward and backwards and on the other hand, the Bonita belongs to Yowza’s core training ellipticals with upper body handlebars moving sideways instead.
Making a decision depends on your preference and how much you are willing to spend for an elliptical. You can try the Largo and of you are not happy with it, return it within the 60-day period so you can get a refund.
