The NordicTrack A2105 Treadmill – Not a Runner’s Treadmill

The NordicTrack A2105 treadmill is made by Icon Fitness who now own the subsidiary Nordic Track brand since the original company went bankrupt. Since the name has been around since the days of the ski machine, you would probably expect its treadmills to be quality machines. NordicTrack does have some good models in its line up, but the A2105 treadmill isn’t one of them.

The Machine

(This model has been discontinued)

The NordicTrack A2105 treadmill sells for around $1099 MSRP but we’ve seen it for $600 to $700. Its console includes a user weight input, a Grafixx™ display, Light Touch™ controls and can even generate stats for up to two users compiling daily, weekly, monthly and yearly results. Now that’s something you’ve never seen before in a budget treadmill. Here are the specs on the NordicTrack A2105:

The Buzz

One of the strongest features of the NordicTrack A2105 treadmill is the cushioning on the deck. It's amazingly comfortable to walk on - though experts agree that users shouldn’t consider doing more than just walking on the machine; it’s not much of a runner’s treadmill. The rest of the NordicTrack A2105 is not as mechanically sound, and its weakest areas are in reliability and overall quality. If things do break, that’s when the headache begins. Many industry insiders will often note that NordicTracks are notoriously more expensive to repair than other treadmill brands made by Icon Fitness.

Small users can be well satisfied with the performance of this machine. As with many budget models, they can work flawlessly for many years if the user is of average weight and height, or tends not to pound on it with regular intense workouts. This NordicTrack A2105 falls in that category. This has been said over and over again, but heavier users and runners must purchase a better quality treadmill or you’re wasting your money.

What We Say

The NordicTrack A2105 isn’t a bad treadmill for the sale price but it wouldn’t be our first pick when compared to “best buy” models in the same price range. It has a ton of nice features and graphics, it’s loaded with bells and whistles, but the quality just isn’t there. For our money, we’d go with the Smooth 5.25 with its bigger motor and outstanding warranty. You get more for your money compared to the NordicTrack A2105 treadmill.
