Buyer Guide

 

Best Treadmill Frame And Deck

The XTERRA TR150 Review is a durable frame made of steel tube, but it can be considered a lightweight treadmill. The structural components of ABS are side rails, engine cover and console dashboard. However, this machine is designed for users up to 113.3 kg.

All steel parts of the frame have a corrosion-resistant varnish surface. The color used is black, and it is the only color available on the treadmill.

The XTERRA TR150 is not as big as a commercial trainer like Bowflex BXT216. But it is still 161 cm (63.4 inches) and 73 cm (28.75 inches). We also recommend placing more than 2 feet, 3 feet and 1 foot forward on each side for safe operation and easy access. It may not fit well in a small room.

Meanwhile, this device has a collapsible design. The lid is foldable and is approximately 29 x deep when folded. X 28.75 inches (74 x 73 cm) long.

The fully assembled device is quite heavy. It weighs about 49 pounds. However, the front is equipped with transport wheels. Moving the treadmill after exercise is not difficult, as it cannot exceed 35-40% of the total weight.

Treadmill Reviews Slope & Height

The XTERRA Treadmills has a manual slope system similar to the Weslo Crosswalk 5.2T. This means that the platform angle cannot be adjusted during exercise.

The adjustable backrest provides access to the device’s hinge cover. The locking pin makes it easy to hold in place. Of course, the maximum slope is not extreme. Actually, there are 3 gradient increments. 0.5 °, 1 °, 2 °. However, there are two trends that can make driving even more difficult and consume more calories.

The Height of the deck height may vary depending on the tilt setting selected. For example, at a slope of 0 °, the height of the roof steps is about 14.5 cm (5.5 inches). When you put your back down, it’s only 10 cm (4.0 inches). According to them, it is better to install and use the machine in a room with a ceiling of more than 25 cm in height.

XTERRA Fitness TR150 & Motor

The XTERRA Fitness TR150 is equipped with a 2.25 hp motor similar to the Efitment T012. It is not a powerful engine, but it supports session execution or long running even at full speed. It is also equipped with a small steering wheel that stabilizes the rotational movement and makes the movement of the strap much smoother.

The motor of this device offers a speed range from 0.5 MPH to 10 MPH. The console has speed control keys from 1 MPH to 9 MPH. However, the incremental speed control button provides 0.1 MPH steps. It is a great resource to help you find the perfect rhythm for your workout. The belt speed is also smoothly adjusted without sudden changes, so you can adjust the speed accordingly.

The machine console offers a variety of programs. When you select an exercise in one of these programs, the treadmill automatically adjusts the belt speed for each segment of exercise used.

Lastly, power consumption is minimized as it is a basic engine. In other words, even if you use it every day, you shouldn’t add more than a few dollars to your electricity bill. In addition, the motor itself does not make much noise during operation, but it may make some noise depending on the cadence speed.

Treadmills & Console

There is no Bluetooth and is not compatible with other online fitness apps, but the XTERRA TR150 has some motivating features. First, the LCD screen displays fairly large, easy-to-read numbers that record time, distance, speed, calories, and heart rate.

Distance and speed are displayed in English only (miles, miles per hour). However, mileage is also displayed on the track on the left side of the screen. This function counts completed rounds. Each turn is 1/4 mile.

The console device is not telemetry. This means that the pulse can only be read through the sensor integrated in the handlebar. It does not work with POLAR chest transmitters or other types of FC transmitters.

There are 12 predefined programs (P1-P12) and manual programs. Most of the predefined programs are based on time intervals. Each default time is 30 minutes. Of the selected programs, the speed is automatically adjusted every 3 minutes. However, you can customize any program. You can increase or decrease the speed of each cycle. Of course, you can always move freely while adjusting the speed with a manual program.

The console has a stop / start button. If necessary, you can use the stop button to stop the exercise. However, the break is 5 minutes. After 5 minutes, the screen will reboot and return to start mode.

For non-motorized functions, the console has a reading rack or tablet holder. In addition, the panel has two small pockets for various accessories. The device does not have a sound system, USB charging port or cooling fan.

For Maintenance, the strap should be lubricated every 40 hours of use. The console has a lubrication warning function to ensure that the belt is fully lubricated.
