How long will the Matrix TF30 XR last?

The Matrix TF30 XR folding treadmill offers space saving solutions while still coming in at a reassuring weight of 333 lbs. It is a sturdy machine that can fold almost to a 90-degree angle, and it is built of welded steel with the ability to hold users up to 350 lbs. max weight. The TF30 XR comes with a lifetime warranty on the frame, the motor, and cushioning, with 5 years on parts, and 2 years on labor. It is designed for light to moderate use by those of the shorter persuasion and will last many years with proper care and maintenance.

Brief Overview

The Matrix TF30 XR folding treadmill is the base console option in the TF30 series and is very simplistic in nature and does not offer entertainment options. The TF30 was designed to move easily out of the way when workouts are complete and for those who want to solely focus on workout performance. It is mainly suited for power walkers and light joggers who plan to exercise a few times a week and will fit perfectly into any home gym with its sleek, foldable design.

Overall Quality

The Matrix TF30 XR treadmill is designed with a cushioning suspension system including a 1” deck that helps soften impacts on joints and knees and comes with a lifetime warranty. A 3.25 HP CD motor provides decent performance with a max of 12.5 MPH speed limit while users can alternately push themselves towards higher intensity workouts with a 15% incline. The belt is appropriate for smaller strides measuring at 20” x 55” and serious runners are encouraged to look at the TF50 which offers a larger surface area suited more towards longer strides. The Matrix TF30 XR folding treadmill has an easy to read, blue backlit, 8.5” LCD display in the middle of the console, and while not entertainment savvy, can wirelessly gather heartrate info or offer connection to headphones only with Bluetooth technology. The XR console also offers 5 built in programs to entice users to optimal levels of fitness health. This treadmill option is more tuned for those focused solely on performance or who already have a TV mounted to their wall for entertainment pleasures.
