Cybex 625T Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
A very solid treadmill but you should expect that for $6800! It is essentially a Cybex commercial model adapted for the home.
A treadmill that is solid for any type of use. If you want to beat the hell out of a treadmill and the machine not even flinch, this is your treadmill.
The Cybex 625T is a nice treadmill. It is sturdy enough to handle any exercise regimen. At $6,795, however, that's not enough to convince us to recommend it. It's not a bad value, but it's not a great one, either. If you are going to spend this much money on a treadmill, you owe it to yourself to get the best machine available.
The walking area is quite large. The belt measures in at 22" x 60", which is 2" wider than the standard 20" x 60" walking belt that comes on many of today's treadmills. Larger users with a wider stance may find this model to be more accommodating than most.
An impressive motor powers this machine. Very few of the treadmills we reviewed have greater power producing capabilities. Speeds of up to 12.4 mph are attainable, so even experienced runners should have no problem challenging themselves.
A disappointing cushioning system comes on this model. IS3 Intelligent Suspension System is used to reduce the impact that running has on your joints and back. If you know where to look you can find more forgiving and durable running surfaces on one or two treadmills that sell for less than $1,000.
As far as projected reliability is concerned, this machine is great. Only four of the treadmills we reviewed have a longer life expectancy. The quality of parts used is also very good, even at this high of a cost.
The warranty on the Cybex 625T is horrible. The deck, belt, and labor are covered for 1 year; parts are covered for 3 years; and the frame is covered for 10 years. Keep in mind, this warranty was design for commercial use. You may not get the coverage you would normally get, but you most likely won't need it due to how durable this machine is.
