At the end of 2020, NordicTrack revamped their treadmill inventory. Some of the changes that they made included discontinuing older models and introducing new models.One of the most popular line of treadmills that NordicTrack produces is known as their T-Series of treadmills. The T-Series machines are known for their innovative features, durable construction, and affordable price point. The newest addition to their T-Series of treadmills is the EXP 10i treadmill.
The NordicTrack EXP 10i treadmill is manufactured by the parent company, Icon Fitness. Icon Fitness is the largest fitness equipment manufacturer in the world, and they also produce ProForm treadmills. One of the most popular features among NordicTrack and ProForm treadmills is their exclusive fitness technology known as iFit. Note: At the time of this review, the EXP 10i treadmill includes 1-year iFit family membership in the purchase price. (A $468 value)!
The NordicTrack EXP 10i is available for $1,599, plus an additional $199 fee for threshold delivery. 0% financing is available for up to 36 months.
3.5 CHP DurX Commercial Plus Motor – This is a really powerful motor that will be able to handle miles of use, from light walking to avid running. This motor features their SMART-Response Drive System that enables self-cooling and reduced vibration of the motor.
20” x 60” Treadbelt – The standard treadbelt size that we see is 20″ x 55″. Although it may not seem like much, the extra 5″ makes a difference. The 60″ length will make this machine more comfortable for tall users and those with a longer running stride.
Incline AND Decline – A decline feature is something we do not see much on a treadmill at this price point. The EXP 10i allows you to go from -3% decline to 12% incline to mimic going up and down hills. This will take your HIIT workouts to a whole different level!
0-12 MPH – A top speed of 12 MPH is nothing to look over. Most treadmills will max out at 10 MPH, so if you want to have the option to push yourself during your workouts – this is a really great feature.
FlexSelect™ Cushioning – The cushioning on the EXP 10i is designed to mimic running on a real road surface, and soften the impact on your joints.
10” Smart HD Touchscreen – A 10″ display screen will be sufficient for most people. It’s certainly not the largest that we see out there, but it is a good size for the price point of the EXP 10i. Although it’s not a giant screen, the 10″ SMART Touchscreen will enable you to take advantage of your 1-year iFit membership that’s included with your machine purchase. Note: If you want to continue using iFit after your free 1-year membership expires, it is a $39/month subscription fee.

For a budget priced treadmill, the specs on this machine do not disappoint. For less than $2,000, features like a 10″ touchscreen, 3.5 CHP commercial motor, a lengthy 60″ treadbelt, and decline capabilities are nothing to shake a stick at.
