Deck and Belt
Deck is a one-inch Slik-Dek bed composed of 52 lb high-density fiberboard core with phenolic laminate bonded on both sides. Can be flipped to double life. Deck and belt require no external lubrication and are fully warranted for 2 years. Rear-deck hinges and front cushioning create a laterally stable platform, reducing shock to the user and providing firm push off. Injection-molded trim strips with textured-rubber insert are durable and offer secure footing when straddling the running belt.
Elevation system generates up to 1000 lbs of thrust and operates in compression for reliable operation.
Steel tapered rollers keep the belt centered to reduce maintenance and noise.
Two-step powder-coating process applies rust-resistant undercoat and cosmetic topcoat to steel frame.
Safety clip attached to emergency stop switch to immediately turn off power, bringing treadmill to a gentle stop. Stop switch has no magnet to lose and has a guard to prevent inadvertent activation.
