Comparison of the Proform Thinline Desk Treadmill and the Nordictrack Desk Treadmill
Today we’ll compare the desk treadmill models from two competing brands – Proform and Nordictrack. As the name implies, desk treadmills are treadmills that has a console area that you can actually convert into a desk top allowing you to use it for work purposes. There’s a $100 difference between the two, with the Nordictrack being the more expensive brand. So, which brand and model is better? Let’s take a closer look.
Both models have identical motor capacities of 3.0HP. However, the Proform Thinline Desk Treadmill takes the upper hand when it comes to the belt size and maximum speed categories. It also has 34 preset programs.
Another similarity that these two models have is their incline function but the Proform Thinline Desk Treadmill makes the cut by having the higher incline level of 12% and a decline level of -3%.
Now, if you’re after aesthetics, the Nordictrack Desk Treadmill would be your best bet. It has an attractive mahogany wood grain laminate and can be adjusted to different heights. You can also use the desk top while the unit is folded. The Proform Thinline Desk Treadmill, on the other hand, claims to have the thinnest space saving design. When folded, this unit is only 12 inches wide.
Given all these facts, we feel that the $100 difference does not really bear merit. In fact, the cheaper Proform Thinline Desk Treadmill proved to be superior in most of the basic feature and bells and whistle categories.
What Makes Proform Thinline Desk Treadmill worth Buying?
– This model’s selling point is, of course, the console display that folds into a desktop. You don’t usually see this feature in other models.
– This model comes with an above-average belt width of 22″ which means there’s more space for you to move. The 60″ belt length is also ideal for taller users or serious runners who tend to have longer strides.
-If you’re into serious training, this model can help you simulate running uphill and downhill with its 12% incline and -3%decline features.
– The Proform Thinline Desk Treadmill claims to have the thinnest space saver design. It only has a 12-inch width once you fold it up. This would be good for homes with limited spaces.
What Makes The Proform Thinline Desk Treadmill NOT Worth Buying?
–We’re a little wary about this unit’s motor capacity. Based on our experience, a 3.0HP motor rating would be good enough for a 20″ x 60″ belt. The additional 2-inch width of this tread belt might add undue stress to the motor causing it to be overworked.
–Model has a 300-pound user weight capacity but no unit weight information so we’re wondering if this figure is accurate.
-The unit is iFit-enabled and no module is needed since it’s already built-in to the unit. However, you still need to purchase the membership separately before you can enjoy this feature.
