The Teeter Fit Spine X-Series are the Teeter “new for 2019” inversion tables.
Teeter X-Series inversion tables are upgraded and newer models to the very popular EP range.
The X series range all possess similar features to the Ep-560 and EP-960 inversion tables from Teeter.
Both the EP-560 and EP-960 are considered to be Teeters best inversion tables and often considered the best inversion tables available, however this may soon change with the release of this model!
There is also a choice of one of three models – the X1, X2 or the X3. Which like the EP range of Teeter inversion tables have different features depending on what model you opt for.
The Teeter X1 is the more basic, cheaper inversion table of the 3 and as you have probably guessed the X3 is the most feature packed and more pricey.
We will delve into more detail with regards the different features available when comparing each model further down the page.
As is to be expected with Teeter inversion tables, the new X-series tables have already started to get some very high ratings.
It is likely to be only a matter of time until the X-series inversion tables are considered to be the best inversion table from the Teeter range as they inevitably gain more popularity.
Teeter FitSpine X-Series Inversion Table Features
Teeter FlexTech backrest:
The futuristic, angular design looks really eye catching and very sleek.
As with the ComforTrak backrests found on the older EP-560 & 960 Teeter models the FlexTech backrests are not padded.
There is however, a good reason for this, as the backrest provides better spinal decompression overall.
Due to the lack of friction (often found with padded inversion tables), your body is able to slide down the table more easily and efficiently while you invert.
The FlexTech backrests on the X1, X2 and the X3 inversion tables from Teeter feature a ridged design which allows for accessories to be added to the backboard (much like the previous EP models)
The backrest also features Teeters trademark small black padded headrest and 3 stretch grip handles above and beside the headrest.
These three grips are a great addition that allow for more stretching options while inverted.
As you would expect from a top end company like Teeter, the FlexTech backrest has been designed to offer great comfort and optimized for exceptional support while using the inversion table.
On the back of the table bed there is also an 8-point floating suspension system that flexes as you move to maximize decompression.
Lumbar Bridge and Accupressure Nodes included:
With the X-series they are included in the standard price.
As you can see in the image to the right in the optional accessories box, you can add the acupressure nodes to the backrest via the multiple ridges. You can therefore position them almost anywhere on the table backrest to suit your personal preference.
The accupressure nodes are a really nice addition which allow you to add pressure to certain areas of your back.
You have the option of either shifting your weight around the nodes to simulate a shiatsu style massage or you can simply rest upon the nodes maintaining steady and continuous pressure.
The lumbar bridge is also a very good accessory. Allowing the user to add extra support and traction to the lower region of the back.
As you can see in the image to the right there a numerous horizontal slots in which the lumbar bridge can be placed into on the backrest.
This lets the user set the bridge angle to suit their preference.
Either to a high curved angle to really protrude outward from the bed, or they can set it to a more subtle angle to provide a little less intense lower back support.
These useful accessories are a great way of customizing your inversion experience and are not often found on inversion tables from other brands, making them unique to the Teeter range.
The Main Differences between the X1, X2 and X3 and the Similarities:
As you can see from the images above all 3 models are fairly similar. On the left is the Teeter FitSpine X1 inversion table, the X2 is in the middle and the X3 on the right.
Each table also features comfortable wrap around ankle cups for secure and comfortable support for your ankles when inverting.
All of the X-series inversion tables from Teeter also feature precision rotation which allows the user to easily control the inversion process.
The backrest can be controlled simply by raising or lowering your arms allowing you to balance the inversion table and rotate it in a controlled manner.
The tables also feature optional lock out in full inversion to keep the tables backrest securely in place when inverting at a full 180 degrees.
The last similarity is the stretch bar at the back of the inversion table on the lower back floor bar. The bar has been raised to provide a curve so that users have further support and an additional stretching support while inverting.
As you can see in the above images the Teeter FitSpine X1 inversion table has fairly small side support handles when compared to the long full length side handles on the other two models.
For those more experienced with inversion this may be fine, however, personally I prefer longer side handles due to the extra support and assistance they can give while inverting and reverting.
Ez-Reach Ankle locks (not on X1 model):
As you can see in the above images both the X2 and X3 have extra long levers protruding from the ankle lock area.
These features are great should you wish to avoid bending down fully in order to secure your ankles. A good design feature for those who suffer from back pain.
The EZ-Reach ankle levers also provide good security and safety. The deluxe system (on the X3) also has a triple lock system and a micro-adjustment feature.
Overall this is a nice feature to consider, should you wish to avoid putting strain on your back while bending down or if you prefer a little more security.
EZ-Stretch traction handles (X3 only):
The traction handles are a good choice for those who are perhaps getting used to inversion, or for anyone who prefers not to invert at higher angles but still desires some good decompression from a inversion therapy session.
Simply pushing on these handles provides additional decompression and stretching options.
You can also rhythmically push the handles to allow for oscillated movement or use them as an additional aid when returning to an upright position from full inversion.
You can view the traction handles in the image to the right pointing upwards above the side handles.

Are the Teeter FitSpine X-series Inversion tables a good choice?
Although (at the time of writing) it may be too early to tell how these new X-series Teeter inversion tables will be received by the general public. It is fairly likely they will soon be one of (if not) the best options around.
Simply looking at the buyer reviews on older Teeter inversion table models (for example the EP-960), will show you what an exceptional company Teeter are when it comes to producing very high quality inversion tables.
Teeter are a company that have always put a lot of effort into consistently upgrading and redesigning their already excellent inversion tables.
Over time the buyer ratings on this X range are likely to be as good as the highly rated EP range from Teeter.
Since many of the features on the X-series can be found on models from the similarly priced EP range from Teeter, the new and improved FlexTech backrest is clearly the main reason to opt for this particular inversion table.
Overall the X-series inversion tables from Teeter are a very stylish choice that are guaranteed to provide the great functionality Teeter are famous for.
They also have plenty of useful features that are great for beginners and for those more experienced with inversion therapy.
However, aside from the bed area not much has changed regarding the features when compared to the older EP range of Teeter inversion tables.
So the choice of Teeter inversion table may simply come down to what style of backrest you prefer.
Either way a Teeter inversion table is always going to be one of the best and most highly rated choices.
