How long will the Matrix T50 XER last?

In a masterful mix of aluminum and welded steel, the Matrix T50 XER treadmill can hold a max user up to 400 lbs., and has a sturdy assembled weight of 315 lbs. It designed for joggers to light runners and with moderate use, should last for many years of cardiovascular workout pleasure. The T50 has a generous lifetime warranty on the frame, motor, and cushioning with 7 years on parts, and 2 years on labor and comes backed by 20 years of design under the Matrix brand name.

Brief Overview

The Matrix T50 XER treadmill is the 2nd step up console offering in the T50 series and offers quite an upgrade from the XR simple display in terms of technology offerings and iFit compatibility. The T50 XER is a great blend of functionality and tech and will appeal to an immense customer base with its commercial grade features and roomy workout space. While it is a bit more expensive than your average home treadmill, with the lifetime warranties on top of the other quality attributes, this machine is quite an investment for any user on the path to higher fitness health.

The Matrix T50 XER treadmill offers luxury in the home gym setting.

Aluminum side rails offer greater stability while the 1” cushioned deck lessons painful impacts on joints and knees during workout sessions. A roomy 20” x 60” running surface allows taller users the ability to stretch their strides while remaining comfortably on the belt instead of falling off the back or stepping on the motor cover.

History

Before, we have discussed how the T50 XER fits in with the other treadmills in this price range. Matrix is similar to True and Lifespan in that the company has become a staple for the upper end, quality treadmills. Accordingly, the T50 XER has fit the bill over the years. Though it has lacked in added features, we have continued to regard the T50 XER as a good treadmill.

Conclusion

As it compares to other treadmills in this price range, the Matrix T50 XER is a sturdy built treadmill with fewer programmed workouts. Even so, the added entertainment features in the XER console and the Matrix warranty in the T50 XER help to make this treadmill a good machine for a moderate to heavy user. Subsequently, we have awarded the Matrix T50 XER Second Place among our 2019 Best Buys for the $3,000 to $3,999 dollar category.
