The Matrix Treadmill TF50 with XER console is a commercial-quality treadmill with a price tag to match. This tank of a treadmill is well-made with quality components, lots of entertainment options, and a decent amount of added conveniences. Powered by a 3.25 horsepower motor, the TF50 is responsive, recalibrating with each footfall. It supports speeds up to 12.5 miles per hour and incline ranges from 0% to 15%. Unfortunately, there is no decline option, a feature typically seen on treadmills in this price range.
The TF50 comes equipped with several onboard programs including the Sprint 8, a high-intensity, short in duration workout. The 10-inch touchscreen comes equipped with access to apps such as Facebook, Spotify, Netflix, Twitter, YouTube, Weather, and iFIT all of which require subscriptions. Monitor your workout as the display provides feedback on calories, heart rate, peak heart rate, speed, incline, pace, distance, and more. With its WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity, the TF50 keeps you connected when getting in that sweat.
Its folding design and transport wheels make it possible to free up some space when not in use. That said, at 346 pounds, the TF50 is not something that will be moved easily. Stamping out a footprint of 81 inches long, 35 inches wide, and 62 inches high, you will need a dedicated spot for this. Even when folded, it takes up a decent amount of real estate.
While the TF50 comes with some solid conveniences such as water bottle holders, soft-touch buttons, and a folding design, it is expensive. Its specs and features do not stack up to similarly priced treadmills.
