MP3 Input and Speakers – NordicTrack offers some of the best sound systems installed on a treadmill. Many treadmill companies cheap out on the speakers and they are barely audible.
4.0” HP Motor – Let’s just say – this is a bit of an overkill for a motor in a residential treadmill. No matter how much you abuse this motor, it will take it and more.
22” x 60” Treadbelt – The Commercial 2450 has an extra wide 22″ treadbelt with a 60” length that gives you a nice comfortable zone for long running strides and interval training.
15% Incline & 3% Decline – NordicTrack is one of the few treadmill companies that allows you to both incline and decline the deck. This gives you the ability to simulate running up and down hills. It further enhances the experience of running with Google Maps.
Adjustable Shock Absorption – We’re not sure about the logic of this feature. You can turn off the shock absorption so you can simulate running on asphalt, which doesn’t make a lot of sense, since one of the major benefits of running on a treadmill is the reduced impact to your body. However, some people prefer a firmer running surface.
Warranty – The coverage is similar to other treadmills at this price range; lifetime frame and motor, 5-year parts and 2-year labor.
