Our Epic treadmill review looks at one of the best value brands of treadmills we’ve come across to date…so what do you get for your money?
Quite a lot, actually. These are well built, durable machines aimed at the low to mid-price market and offer a very competitive package.
Epic is another brand owned by Icon Health and Fitness, one of the largest manufacturers of exercise equipment.
As a big player in the marketplace, Icon spends a lot of money designing and developing their treadmills and whilst I’m not a big fan of all their products, they’re on to a winner with Epic.
Epic Treadmill Review – Introduction to the range
When taking a close look at Epic treadmills, you’ll notice similarities with other Icon brands, notably Image treadmills.
They’re not the same but share a number of the same features that make them a good buy if you’re in the market for a feature packed, well built treadmill that won’t break the bank.
There are five models that we have reviewed.
They range from around $1,000 to $2,700, but you can get some huge discounts online, which is what makes them such good value.
Epic Treadmill Review – Features…
Whilst there’s a lot to like about Epic treadmills, it’s the important stuff that stands out for me.
The motors start at 2.25 HP continuous duty on the 400 MX through to the powerful 3.0 HP unit on the 1000 MX.
The belts are a generous 20″ wide and range from 55″-60″ long. The decks are robust with decent sized rollers, which helps to prolong the life of the belt.
Cushioning is good on the whole range and even the entry level 400 MX and 450 MX feel very comfortable and stable.
They all fold completely and are compact enough when folded to store away easily.
The display consoles are clear and easy to read and each model has multiple pre-programmed workout programs so you should get plenty of variety when you train.
You also get heart rate monitors and cooling fans.
Epic Treadmill Review – The Bottom Line…
Our Epic treadmill review leaves us quite impressed by the Epic range. The entry level 400 MX and 450 MX are good choices for walkers and the 600 MX upwards should suit joggers through to serious runners.
For us, the 400 MX offers the best deal as it can be had for under $900 online. The problem for Epic, though is that the rest of the range are in competition with some seriously good treadmills.
To be frank, whilst these Epics are good, if I were investing $1,300 upwards I’d buy a Sole which have more powerful motors and better warranties.
However, these Epics are well worth considering at the heavily discounted prices.
