NordicTrack’s T 8.5 S is one of our Best Buy Treadmills of 2019. This folding treadmill is a great buy and fits in most homes for convenience.

Some of our favorite features:

FlexSelect™ Cushioning
The NordicTrack T 8.5 S is designed to create a solid foot strike and healthy toe-off while also providing a bit of cushioning in the deck for both comfort and joint support.

20” x 60” Commercial Tread Belt
This is the same size tread belt as NordicTrack’s Commercial series treadmills. It offers you abundant forward/aft length as well as more lateral space while running.

3.5 CHP DurX™ Commercial Plus Motor
A DurX 3.5HP motor is powerful enough to support walking, jogging and light running. This may not be ideal for heavy training or daily use by multiple users, but if you are a single user who wants to walk and jog regularly, the 8.5 S is an excellent option.

SpaceSaver® Design with EasyLift™ Assist
The 8.5 S treadmill has the same size running belt as all the Commercial series treadmills! The 22” width and 60” length is a spacious running platform that will fold up to save space when you are finished.

10” Smart HD Touchscreen
NordicTrack has added full-color touchscreens to most of their T-series and all their Commercial series treadmills. The addition of a touchscreen makes the treadmill a more fun and effective way to train indoors.

Includes 1-Year NordicTrack iFit® membership
iFit includes over 16,000 different workout classes and programs that you can watch on or off the treadmill. iFit includes walking, jogging, hiking, running and combo classes that all look great on the 10” touchscreen.

50 On-Board Workout Programs
For those who don’t want to use or pay for iFit, the 8.5 S comes with 50 preloaded programs already on the treadmill that do not require a subscription.

0-12% Incline
12% incline is impressive for a folding treadmill! Walking or running on an incline burns more calories than running at the same speed on a flat road — so you get more out of your workout in the same amount of time. Incline training also allows users to stay low impact (walk) but still increase heart rate for intense cardio training.

0-12 MPH Speed
12mph is about the fastest speed you get on an indoor treadmill. The NordicTrack T 8.5 S provides you with all the speed you will need for HIIT, sprints, interval training, heart rate training, etc.

10-Year Frame Warranty
This is an impressive warranty! NordicTrack backs up their equipment with solid warranties that reflect the quality of construction and design.
