NordicTrack C 900 Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
If you are short on budget and long on needs, this is the best option on the market. High value machine with good drive system parts.
What can be said in favor of this treadmill…
Good motor that powers the tread with minimum noise
The 3 HP motor is a great feature that works nicely in combination with the drive system to power a satisfying running area of 20" x 60", giving a relatively noise free performance. Runners can clock speeds up to 12 mph without straining this motor and the lifetime warranty on the motor will add extra zing to your stride.
The expansive treadbelt and well cushioned deck will please walkers and runners
The 20" x 60" treadbelt size is fast becoming the gold standard for reputed models and it presents just the right length and width to accommodate both the strenuous walker and serious runner.
A major plus point in this treadmill is its QuadFlex cushioning structure which ensures that runners get superior protection for legs, hips and back muscles during intense exercises. The cushioning adds significant value to the treadmill and a better surface can only be found above $3,000.
This is a folding treadmill
With dimensions of 82" L X 36" W X 58" HT users will heave a sigh of relief that this treadmill folds at an angle, freeing up valuable space within homes. But a good amount of space will be required to accommodate the machine when it unfolds and it is never compact enough to be called small.
Some negative points…
Good value for money below $1,000 but extreme users will not be satisfied
A great motor, an excellent track and reasonably good quality drive components makes the NordicTrack C 900 good value for money below the $1,000 price point. But extreme users would prefer more meat in their diet which comes only in a bigger $2,000 menu in high end NordicTracks.
Warranty coverage is inadequate
You get lifetime frame and motor warranty along with 3 year parts and 1 year labor which is quite average for the price point and only emphasizes the fact that NordicTrack warranties don't promise much in their low priced models.
Even after deploying cheaper parts to bring prices within $1,000 this treadmill can't be written off as a bad buy. The quality of the motor, frame, and drive components is decent enough to add value to the machine. Despite the average warranty this machine has good features and is sturdy and reliable enough to withstand prolonged use by normal walkers. The really serious users should aim higher and go for NordicTracks priced at or above $1,500.High value NordicTrack with some of the better parts of the higher end models without the higher end price.
