Opti Motorised Walking Folding Treadmill Review
This lower priced Treadmill under the brand name of Opti offers 15 programs to choose from, a folding mechanism to reduce the storage space required and it only weighs 30kg which is a whole lot lighter than your average motorised treadmill.
The console on the frame reports back on the main parameters such as speed, distance, calories and timings, the motor power is 0.75HP continuous (peak 1HP) and it offers a maximum speed of 6km per hour (walking pace). In addition, the max user weight allowance in 17 stone and 5 lbs or 110kg and you get the transport wheels built in along with the auto stop safety clip and a standard 12 month warranty
Once assembled, this treadmill measures out at H114cm by W66cm by D129cm and when folded, the dimensions are reduced to H124cm by W66 cm by D58cm. The running deck is pretty good at L102cm by W40cm which is plenty for casual or faster walking paces.
One of the main attractions for this treadmill is the low price tag and you should be able to get your hands on it for between £300 and £350 when seen at the time of our review. Instead of having to pay for it all upfront, you can choose to pay for it in 3 equal instalments using PayPal if needed
Pros for the Opti Folding Treadmill

3, Many treadmills can weigh 100kg or more but this treadmill is significantly lighter at just 30kg which makes the job of moving it about a whole lot easier to do.
4, Assembly is quick and easy to do with well laid out instructions and you should be ready to go after 15-30 minutes assembly work
5, The noise level is lower than expected which is down to the lower powered motor and compact size

Cons for the Opti Folding Treadmill

2, There is only 2 manual inclines available unlike premium treadmills that offer multiple auto incline options.
3, There is no Bluetooth connection, no MP3 connection, no loud speakers and no fitness app so it is quite basic overall so boredom could set in rather quickly.
4, You will need to buy and apply treadmill lubricants separately
