In this Spec Review, we’ll look at the new EXP 10i treadmill from NordicTrack. The NordicTrack EXP 10i is a newer model in the NordicTrack T-Series lineup. This treadmill offers many of the features found in the Commercial Series line at a more affordable price. The 10i has a 10” touchscreen, a 20” wide by 60” long running surface, FlexSelect cushioning, and a 3.5 horsepower motor that will power speeds up to 12mph. The 10i also inclines to 12% and declines to a -3%, so it provides extensive training variables as well. The 300lb user capacity makes it a workable option for most users.

NordicTrack EXP 10i Treadmill review
The new NordicTrack 10i has wireless connectivity, so it will sync with Bluetooth headphones. iFit also has automated controls which means while you enjoy a program, the incline and speed will adjust for you which allows you to walk hands-free. The 3.5 horsepower motor is also strong enough to support walking, jogging and running. iFit comes free for the first year with up to five profiles for different users in your home. The Flex Select cushioning also reduces impact and joint discomfort from walking or jogging. We find the 10i to be a welcome addition to the NordicTrack lineup and offers a good combination of features at a great price.
