The NordicTrack T 6.5S is a beautifully designed and built treadmill with all the features you need in a cardio machine. It has a 2.6CHP engine. This home treadmill can give you up to 10MPH speed, and can tilt up to 10%. In addition, the engine makes operation smooth and efficient. The running cover uses the FlexSelectdamping system, which is available on most NordicTracktreadmills. The damping system provides a smooth surface that does not damage the joints, but can be deactivated to provide a rigid surface like the exteriors.
Your console comes with a 5-inch LED display with track view. It has no fans, but it has two cup holders. Its console offers up to 20 preloaded training programs to choose from, and if you are subscribed to the iFitprogram, you can access many more training programs compatible with this treadmill. You can monitor your heart rate with CardioGrip sensors, although not wireless option on this model. For audio options, you have support for MP3 and two speakers. It does not have a USB charger. Finally, the console controls feature one-touch keys as well as quick-start keys.
For this model there is a lifetime warranty for the frame, 25 years for the engine, and 1 year for the other parts.
What we like most about this model is its shock absorption system that allows the user to customize their training with the ability to turn damping on and off. When it is turned off, the cover is stiffer and simulates running outdoors. When turned on, the cover is more cushioned and gives a better support experience.
This model uses the patented SpaceSaver design with the EasyLift Assis with which you can easily fold this treadmill in one step. The cover reclines on its own, so there is no need to carry a lot of weight.
The price is very good as it is nordiTrack’s cheapest treadmills, costing below $600. He’s very pocket-friendly.
However, when it is in operation this equipment can be somewhat noisy. Keep this in mind if you’re training in a place where noise can be a problem.
The console is quite minimalist, you get what you pay for. The T NordicTrack T 6.5 S treadmill doesn’t have several essential features like a fan or storage space, so you have nowhere to put your keys, phone, etc.
In conclusion, if you are looking for a treadmill that is budget-friendly so you can start training, this is a very good choice of a brand already widely recognized. Although you may get some better option for less price. This model is not designed for runners, or for maintenance-free lifetime use. If you want to save money, consider other models with which you can buy something better for the same price.
