BH T1 Sport Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
BH's basic models don't even stack up against Icon units in the same price range. They either have inflated the MSRP's or they haven't seen what else is on the market.
If they can get $1300 out of people for this treadmill, God bless them because they would be some of the best salespeople in the world but my guess is that they would be working for a company like Boeing if they were that good.
The BH T1 Sport is tailored-made for those individuals who enjoy throwing money out of their car window as they drive. For the rest of us that like to hold onto our money unless we find something worthwhile, the $1,299 price tag is much too high. Unless you can get a massive discount on this treadmill, we see no reason to think about buying it.
The walking area is a good size. The belt measures in at 20" x 55", which is a solid 5" shorter than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that is found on many of today's treadmills. This should still provide plenty of room for larger users to run on comfortably without altering their stride.
A weak motor powers this machine. There are treadmills selling for $599 that have comparable power producing capabilities. Speeds of up to 12 mph are attainable, but we wouldn't recommend using this model for anything other than walking. The structure and drive system won't hold up well to running.
An unimpressive cushioning system comes on this model. Active Flex Suspension is used to reduce the impact that walking has on your joints and back. Many sub-$1,000 treadmills provide a more forgiving and durable running surface.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is extremely disappointing. Several treadmills that sell for $799 have similar life expectancies. The quality of parts used is also very low for this price.
The warranty on the BH T1 Sport is good. Labor is covered for 1 year, parts are covered for 5 years, and the motor and frame are covered for life. The warranty is the most price appropriate aspect of this treadmill, which is usually a sign that the manufacturer wants you to believe their machine is more durable than it really is.
