Tunturi Elliptical Review Index
General Information:This is a Finnish company that has made treadmills for many years. The new models are a vast improvement over what we have seen recently! Models are made in both Europe and in Asia and are now being distributed in the USA by Accell Fitness. With the market so crowded and Accell putting their emphasis on Bremshey, we are uncertain about the long-term prospects for this brand in the USA.
Manufacturing Philosophy:Tunturi has emerged to have a broad product lineup that has feature rich products and an acceptable quality level for the price that is being asked.
Company Outlook : Accell seems to be one of the stronger newcomers in this market and if this were a normal downturn we wouldnÂ´t have any question if they were going to be around, but this is not a normal downturn. It will depend upon how much money Accell wants to spend in order to ride this downturn out as to whether we will see the Bremshey brand 5 years from today. The Tunturi brand hasn't had as much luck in the US market over the years and new distributors for Tunturi have been more common than we would prefer to see, especially considering product support. We don't expect to see this brand around in 5 years.
