Designed for convenience, the Echelon Stride Folding Treadmill features auto-fold technology to make heart-pumping workouts more accessible. In addition, the lightweight design and built-in wheels make it easy to move and store the Stride wherever, whenever. Just 10 inches in depth when folded, the Stride can fit in just about any size space.
At 55 inches long and 20 inches wide, the Stride has a relatively sizeable running surface. However, it’s about 5 inches shorter and 2 inches narrower than high-end models. Regardless, it works well for running at any pace with little worry of catching the side rails or stepping off the back.
With a top speed of 12 mph, it is suitable for everything from walking and jogging to sprint workouts, although the deck doesn’t have the most impressive cushioning. The incline is adjustable from 0 to 10%, and while that is substantial given the size, weight, and storability of the Stride, it falls a bit short of the competition.
The Echelon Stride folding treadmill uses Bluetooth to connect to your device and the Echelon app. It doesn’t need to be used with the app but offers a massive selection of live and on-demand treadmill workouts. If you’re the type who enjoys the instruction and motivation that fitness apps like Echelon provide, there’s no shortage of quality options.
