Superior, top of the range home fitness treadmill. This treadmill really is the top of the pile, and this is reflected in the high price. However, the specifications outshine other less priced treadmills in the V Fit range, offering a 2.5hp peak motor and a micro-processor based motor controller. The running belt reaches a maximum speed of 16km/h, which translates to 10mph, and ramps up to a peak incline of 15%. At this speed and incline range the V Fit T2-08 folding treadmill will cater for almost every type of home fitness user.
The higher price of this treadmill means the build quality is also higher, and offers a more robust frame that can cater for a maximum user weight of 120kg (18.8 stones), which is higher than most other home treadmills on the market. This particular model also comes with a cracked grey coloured epoxy coated finish that is fully chip resistant. The running belt is 126cm long and 46cm wide and is silicon impregnated to increase smoothness and durability. The treadmill can be easily stored and maneuvered due to its easy folding mechanism and transport wheels, and is something that is highly desirable, if not essential in home treadmills.
As is standard with home fitness machines, the V Fit folding treadmill is fitted with an auto cut-off safety key, so that if something goes wrong the belt stops immediately. There is a 4 screen, 5 function LCD monitor console that allows you to control every function of this machine. Your heart rate, speed, distanced covered, workout time, and calories burnt are all displayed in front of your eyes, while you can choose to operate the treadmill in manual mode, where you set and adjust your speed and incline throughout the workout yourself, or you can select one of the 10 pre-defined workout programmes.
