The Tunturi T50 folding treadmill is a Scandinavian design that features the company’s unique Position Speed Control (PSC) that automatically adjusts the belt speed to match the user’s pace.
It has incline capability, a large selection of workout programs and a strong motor, all great features to have.
Yet at almost $2,500, it's very expensive for a treadmill and there are much better options out there for you.
The 6-window LED and LCD combination display shows speed, time, distance, energy consumption, elevation, and heart rate.
With 35 total programs you can choose from among pre-sets, manual, constant heart rate control, race, fitness test, and more.
Let's look at some of the best features here...

UPDATE: The Tunturi T50 treadmill has been discontinued. Check out the newest Tunturi models on the company's site.
The new lineup consists of the Cardio Fit, FitRun, Competence, Performance, Endurance and Platinum pro models. There are a lot of options for you.
Note that you are probably better off looking elsewhere, as you can't buy Tunturi treadmills online anymore, and there are no longer dealers. As such we recommend some of the other top brands like Life Fitness, Matrix and Precor.
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 US distributor (Accell Fitness) and unproven local product support.
If you are going to spend $2,400 on a treadmill, go with a Matrix, 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.
Tunturi used to be a much more attractive brand, but they have faded over the years and you'd be hard pressed to find one of these machines in any gym or anyone's home for that matter.
Go with one of our top recommendations from other high end brands and you'll be much happier with your decision.
UPDATE: Spring Treadmill Sales are going strong!
