UPDATE: The Tunturi T50 treadmill has been discontinued. Check out the newest Tunturi treadmill models on the company's site.
This Tunturi T50 folding treadmill has Tunturi’s unique T-Flex, T-Pulse, and Position Speed Control (PSC) functions that adjusts speed, pace, and intensity when necessary to match your fitness needs.
It reacts proactively to the user; when you begin to run slower, the treadmill belt slows for you – no need to dial in a new mph speed. Likewise, the belt will automatically speed up when you feel like sprinting!
Other features of the Tunturi T50 include heart rate sensors on the handlebars, wireless HR compatibility, motivational and challenging fitness programs, a folding and space saving design, an orthopedic running belt, 4 personal user memory settings, a 3.0 hp motor, a 12% max incline in 0.5% increments, and a 245-lb product weight that supports a user weight up to 330 pounds.
While the Tunturi T50 folding treadmill is a solid performer and the reviews are good, you are better off with a North American brand than a treadmill from a Finnish company with a new US distributor (Accell Fitness) and unproven local product support.
If you are going to spend $2,400 on a treadmill, go with a True, Life Fitness, or Precor, as any one of those best-selling leaders are not only well established in this market, they provide attentive customer service for consumers of their high quality machines.
