Weslo Cadence G 5.9i Treadmill Review - $299.00

  • How Long Will The Weslo Cadence G 5.9i Last?

    Though the Cadence G5.9i does have an above average build for its price range, it is important to keep in mind what we are reviewing. A basic treadmill such as this one is the equivalent to a piece of tissue that you put on a cut that will last long enough until you can get an actual band-aid. Like any cheap machine, the Cadence G5.9i will likely see the most years if kept in an ideal environment and used by someone who enjoys the casual walk every now and again. Still, the amount of quality matches the price tag and the life expectancy bar should not be set too high.
  • Brief Overview

    The Cadence G5.9i has won our Third Place 2019 Best Buy Award for the $399 and Under Price Range. While there are a few features that help give this treadmill an edge, one must remember that this is a basic treadmill. Comparisons between these types of treadmills can mirror a comparison between a cracker with salt and a cracker without salt. It is important to keep in mind that it is still a cracker in the end. With that said, we have found that the Cadence G5.9i has a decent build among treadmills with this price tag which has helped it win our award.
  • Overall Quality

    The Cadence G5.9i has won our Third Place 2019 Best Buy Award for the $399 and Under Price Range. While there are a few features that help give this treadmill an edge, one must remember that this is a basic treadmill. Comparisons between these types of treadmills can mirror a comparison between a cracker with salt and a cracker without salt. It is important to keep in mind that it is still a cracker in the end. With that said, we have found that the Cadence G5.9i has a decent build among treadmills with this price tag which has helped it win our award.

    With that said, Weslo’s Cadence G5.9i is equipped with the same basic features that seem to follow every treadmill in the lower end market: foldability, a few built-in workouts, and a sixteen-inch walking area (standard for this price range). Weslo has also given a one-year motor drive and ninety-day parts and labor warranty for this machine; while not the best, this is an average warranty for this price range that does give a hats off to the overall value in this baseline treadmill.

    One feature we do not like, however, is the incline capability. If these treadmills are like a basic ham sandwich, then Weslo forgot the mustard. They gave a two-position incline in the Cadence G5.9i which is pretty sad when the other most basic treadmills have the capability to incline up to ten percent with degree optionality. It seems as though Weslo has cut a corner where other companies have not.

  • History

    Throughout the years, we have regarded Weslo’s Cadence G5.9i as a very basic machine that looks better than others in this low-price range but won’t necessarily give more quality. We have expressed concern for users who purchase these basic machines with the expectation that they will withstand years of use as many times a user can spend more money repairing these rudimentary treadmills than if they were to simply buy a better-quality model.
  • Conclusion

    We have awarded the Weslo Cadence G5.9i Third Place in out 2019 Best Buy Category for the $399 and under quality with its standard features and decent build. We like to see efforts to help machines standout among others and the sturdiness of Weslo’s low-end model, while not the best, is a nice additive. With that said, we are sorely disappointed to see the two-position incline that is undoubtedly a cut corner on Weslo’s part. Overall, the Cadence G5.9i is a starter treadmill that is best suited for light walkers who exercise every once and a while.
