The Tunturi Pure F 10.0 Cross Trainer is the top specification model in the front driven range of Pure cross trainers. This particular design is front driven, which has various benefits over the rear driven version.

The following product article takes a look at the overall design, workout programs, user profiles and even quality of assembly instructions to help you decide if this is the best cross trainer for your style of training.

Design features

Tunturi Pure F 10.0 Elliptical Cross Trainer


With cross trainers being classed into the two main categories of front driven and rear driven, it can be difficult to know the difference and benefits of each.

The main difference with the Tunturi Pure F 10.0 over the Pure R 10.0 model is the fact that this is front driven (F) instead of rear driven (R).

In terms of the range of motion this essentially means that front driven cross trainers usually have a longer stride length and are more suitable for taller users, compared to the shorter range of motion that comes with rear driven versions.

This is true of the Tunturi Pure F 10.0 where the stride length measures 19 inches compared to the 16 inch stride length of the Pure R 10.0.

With the flywheel housing being kept at the front of the machine out of the way of the foot plates, this also makes front driven cross trainers much easier to climb onto.

A large 9kg flywheel has been built in which together with the rails that the foot plates slide along ensures complete stability and smooth running motion while working out.

The Pure F 10.0 also includes heart rate hand sensors built into the smaller set of handles, with the larger set being ergonomically designed to make the most effective use of your upper body power.

If you are looking to buy a cross trainer that is easy to move around then it’s worth noting that this particular design doesn’t include transport wheels. It does however include adjustable support feet that can help make sure the machine is stable on slightly uneven ground.

How easy is it to assemble?

Although there is no textual instruction, the exploded drawings are exceptionally clear and easy to understand

One of the main focuses in the design of the Tunturi Pure F 10.0 was ensuring the overall design was simple yet stylish and aesthetically pleasing.

This is one of the reasons why there is really very little assembly required, with the flywheel housing and base frame being delivered pre-assembled.

Due to the front driven nature of this cross trainer this does mean there are a few more parts and assembly steps compared to the rear driven Pure R 10.0, but this is mainly just for attaching the rear rail section.

The quality of assembly instructions really couldn’t be better, with a full detailed list of all parts you should expect to be in the box. Each step is then broken down in exploded drawings showing the part references and how they fit together very clearly.

With 12 assembly steps, each being relatively quick to complete it’s possible to have the Tunturi Pure F 10.0 setup and ready to use in under 40 minutes.

Intuitive touch screen display console

The intuitive touch screen display of the Tunturi Pure F 10.0

The main difference between the earlier Pure Cross F models and the Pure Cross F 10.0 is in the display console design and training options.

The extra large 10.2 inch full colour LCD screen is possible thanks to this being a touch screen, with an on-screen menu system and training options that remove the need for any buttons.

Basic functions such as the volume and screen brightness are still controlled manually using buttons on the side of the display, but the main training options are accessed through a menu of icons on the left of the screen.

As well as the wide variety of workout programmes, the Tunturi Pure F 10.0 also provides a few menu options to help make your workouts more interesting and enjoyable.

A built in E-Book Reader that accesses your E-Books stored on a USB, internet access through Wi-Fi and a media centre to listen to your favourite workout music while you train are all included.

Wide range of workout programmes

The Tunturi Pure F 10.0 allows you to choose from 10 preset training profiles, each designed for specific goals and for a variety of fitness levels.

These are broken down into the following:

  • 2 hill climb programs with relatively low intensity
  • 2 programs designed to increase you aerobic fitness
  • 2 more advanced programs focussed on fat burning
  • 2 interval training programs, with one designed to improve your strength and one designed as more of a cardio workout
  • 2 cardio climb programs designed as high intensity programs for more advanced levels of fitness

While each of these workouts will have preset resistance and intensity levels, you can still choose the duration or distance of your workout.

Being able to store up to 20 users on the register also means you can create a lot more custom workouts yourself. Up to 100 of these user created workouts can be stored on the F 10.0 training computer.

As well as these preset and user designed training options, the Tunturi Pure F 10.0 also includes a number of workouts specific to Tunturi that make much more use of the large display screen.

Tunturi specific workout programmes

‘T-Ride’, ‘T-Road’ and ‘T-Music’ are the 3 Tunturi specific options included with the Tunturi Pure F 10.0 and have been created to provide you with much more interactive and varied workouts.

  • T-Ride – This brings a whole new level of configuration to your workouts. As well as being able to change the resistance, before you start you can also select the terrain for your running course and the start and end points.
  • T-Road – Similar to T-Ride with being able to select a course for your workout, but also displays a video of your progress on the screen.
  • T-Music – This is a 40 minute workout that varies the tempo of music being played based on your heart rate. So if the workout intensity and heart rate are high then faster paced music will play, with slower paced music being played with lower heart rate and intensity levels.

Fitness test

As well as the wide range of workout programs, the Tunturi Pure F 10.0 also features a fitness test.

This simply starts you at a low level of effort and gradually increases both the resistance and speed according to which of the categories you choose (Athletic, Active, Inactive) until you reach 85% of your maximum heart rate.

The test will then end and display a number of results relating to your overall fitness levels. This includes an aerobic fitness grade, maximum oxygen uptake level and an estimate of your maximum exercise power.

Any of these results can then be chosen and measured again in a few months time as a way of measuring how much your overall fitness level is improving.
