The Kettler Axos Cross P offers smooth performance, due to its heavy-duty 30 lb flywheel, and highly functional computer programming (there are 12 programs and 16 resistance levels to choose from) yet comes in a small package.
The stride length of the Axos Cross measures 15 inches, while the footplates travel 18” along their elliptical paths. This means that the elliptical is suitable for both smaller and taller individuals; however, very tall users may find their workout to be not as comfortable.
As the flywheel comes in at a very respectable 30.5 pounds the stride motion feels very smooth and accurately mimics your walking and jogging motion, which is one of the real advantages of the Cross P compared to similarly priced models. Due to utilizing a Poly “V” drive belt system, the elliptical is also very quiet in operation, which is another plus.
The Kettler Axos Cross P features 12 built-in workout programs, complete with adjustable intensity levels. This should be enough variety for most users, particularly as the programs are designed for a range of fitness goals, such as weight loss, endurance and heart rate control, with the latter automatically adjusting the resistance to maintain your target heart rate.
Again, the 16 resistance levels should be more than enough variety for most; actually, 16 resistance levels is definitely enough. This is because the lowest level of resistance takes it nice and easy and is ideal for very out of shape users and for warming up and down purposes, and the highest setting is more than challenging enough for even the fittest of individuals.
The computer console features a graphic dot matrix and provides you with feedback on distance, time, speed, rpm, energy consumption and heart rate via the telemetric hand grip sensors, infrared ear clip sensor or wireless Polar T-34 chest strap transmitter.
While all the readings are accurate, if you want the most accurate heart rate readings then we recommend purchasing the optional Polar T-34.
The Kettler Axos Cross P does a good job at providing users with a comfortable workout experience. This is mostly down to the adjustable foot plates which are adjustable to three positions for varied elliptical motions.
Rolling casters and built-in floor levelers allow for easy transport and storage.
The Cross P is backed by lifetime frame, and 2-year parts and electronics warranty.

Kettler Axos Cross P User Reviews
There aren’t many reviews to go off, but from what we’ve seen users really quite like the Axos. Users say that it is very well-constructed and therefore likely to last for many years to come. The stride motion is very smooth and it is also quiet in operation.
There appears to be no complaints, besides one person commenting on the assembly process.
There is very little to complain about. However, something along the lines of a built-fan, speakers, or a reading rack would’ve been appreciated.
Anything Else You Should Know?
While it’s true that Kettler are better known for their rowing machines than elliptical trainers, the company have managed to design a very good elliptical in the Axos Cross P. A couple of extras would be nice, but it’s hard to fault the Axos at this price.
