Honestly, I REALLY don't like it, and I would refuse to run on it, because it looks really dangerous actually. Unless I'm mistaken, but based upon this picture, the design looks flawed at the core. I'm sure it's fine for walking or going slow speeds, since the risk isn't really that high with that much speed on the track. It also is likely easy to stow. However, for running/jogging faster speeds, I feel like it could get real dangerous when/if you need to stop.It has no bars on the side that you can grab on to for balance, and typically, you grab onto those bars to support you as you lift your feet to the side. Treadmills also have a subtle way of disorienting you at high speeds, so you're more likely to trip or miss the rather thin edges when you are jumping to get off. Falling off and hitting a fast moving high-grip track will HURT badly, especially if you get caught/pinched anywhere in it.This brings me to the second point of danger I see with it-- it looks like it has no emergency clip to stop. Many treadmills (I imagine most) have a safety clip / magnet you can attach to your clothes. That way, if you go too far back, the treadmill shuts off, thus minimizing damage. Since there is no support bar or front, there doesn't seem to be a safety clip. Even if there is, it looks like it'd be possibly attached to the bottom, which is a tripping hazard. Now, I admit, it could be a wireless safety clip, but I honestly wouldn't fully trust a wireless one.The third issue I see with it is that the back doesn't roll off. Instead, it has about half a foot or a third of a foot gap between the rubber track and the back corner of the machine. Most treadmills just roll off and have no back. Why? It minimizes potential risks of getting badly pinched by the treadmill if you go too far back. Plus, as you get tired, you're more likely to fall behind. You don't want your feet getting trapped in some pocket in the back. That's a good way for some heavy friction burns as the machine keeps going since it lacks a safety clip.
All good points!! Thank you!! Tell me if the following images make you change your mind a bit? The back edge is there only when waking at low or moderate speed.. but when you wanna go fast, the back edge is part of the bar that goes up. You can only go fast when the bar is up, therefor providing the support for arms if needed and getting rid of the edge at the back. Look. And it’s not wireless.. it has a small plug 🔌 at the bottom.. The only thing I don’t like is that it works with a remote control apparently:/ I haven’t got it yet to actually say more about it.. just want others opinions on it firstThanks
Oh and it does have emergency stop but only when the bar is up which would be when you’re running faster
My first thought was, how would you stop?
You stop the treadmill? Like you would any other. Or slow it down.. or simply step on the sides as I normally do with regular treadmills I just place my feet each to the side and the come back to the middle when you’re ready to run or walk again
It has sides to step on
