NordicTrack Incline Trainer X11i Treadmill Review
treadmill Doctor Note :
The best just keeping getting better. With higher quality components and a HUGE running surface, the X11i makes a great addition to the incline trainer lineup.
The best incline trainer you can get from NordicTrack. The only disappointment will likely be some glitches with the Android interface.
The NordicTrack Incline Trainer X11i is a high quality treadmill without the ridiculous price tag. This is NordicTrack's best of the Incline Trainer models. It was the 1st runner up for our Best Buy award for treadmills sold between $2,000-2,499.
The walking area is great at 20" x 62". Even those with long strides will feel comfortable running on this treadmill. It's rare to see this size belt on a treadmill of any price, and it's even harder to find one that's bigger. Keep in mind, however, that with high inclines, the console with block some of the belt, so you will actually lose several inches off the stated length.
The motor on this machine is fantastic. It generates as much or more than many of the models that cost upwards of $4,000.
Reflex Cushioning was used to help reduce the impact running has on your joints. It's not particularly impressive for a treadmill that costs $2,499. Many of the lower priced models offer a cushioning system that is more forgiving than this one.
The projected reliability of this machine is about where you'd expect for its price. It shouldn't give up on you too quickly, and if you want something better, you'll usually have to pay more for it. The quality of parts used is pretty good, and incline training will increase their life by allowing gravity to assist the motor.
For its cost, you're getting a quiet treadmill. When compared to some of the other NordicTrack lines, however, it's not that impressive.
The warranty alone makes the NordicTrack Inline Trainer X11i worth taking a serious look at. Labor is covered for 3 years; parts and electronics are covered for 5 years; and the frame, motor, and deck are covered for life. You don't see this kind of coverage very often, and it really shows that NordicTrack is willing to stand behind this model.
