The Yowza Biscayne folding treadmill is the first model in the world to fold up to a slim profile of just 23.8".
The Yowza Biscayne folding treadmill has an attractive LED display on the console that is easy to use and offers an array of one-touch speed, incline, and program selection keys. The pre-set workouts include 3 Target (Time, Distance, Calories), Speed (each with 12 intensity levels), Weight Loss (12 levels), 5K run Learn program, Heart Rate Control, and a Fitness Test. The computer memory holds up to 9 user profiles (age, weight, and fitness level) for quick start up of any workout session.
The specs on the Yowza Biscayne treadmill include:
UPDATE: The Yowza Biscayne has been discontinued. You can take a look at all of the new folding models for sale to find a comparable new treadmill.
The Yowza Biscayne folding treadmill has one cool feature: at just 23.8” wide and 68" high when folded, it is the slimmest folding design of any treadmill on the market. No other machine folds up to near vertical like the Biscayne. Other components and features on the Yowza Biscayne are a commercial grade 3.0 CHP motor, crowned rollers with sealed bearings, Whisper Weave belt, and a robotically welded steel frame. It also comes with a reversible and maintenance-free 1" thick deck made of solid wood construction with phenolic wax coating pre-lubricated at the factory.
The Yowza Biscayne is a heavy treadmill, so do consider buying the Inside Delivery option ($60). The assembly only takes about 45 minutes and it is fairly simple to do even if you have never set-up a treadmill before.
Reviews remark that the Yowza Biscayne is a decent treadmill but does not offer the value as its less expensive siblings, the non-folding Smyrna and the Keewadin folding treadmill, both which have the same components and scientifically designed programs as the Biscayne. The Keewadin also comes with a Wireless Chest Strap as standard equipment and features the patented Swing Arm shock absorption system for a more forgiving running platform.
The $1,699 Yowza Biscayne folding treadmill is a nice machine but the only reason to buy it is for the SLIM LINE folding design. The Smyrna at $1,399 is a better value since it has the exact same specs, features, and warranty as the Biscayne, except it is 40 pounds lighter and does not fold. The best bet is to go with Yowza’s best treadmill – the Keewadin folding model at $1,499.
UPDATE: Spring Treadmill Sales have started!
