Epic Treadmills

Epic treadmills were once produced by Icon Fitness, but now can be purchased at mass retailers like Costco and Sams Club. Amazon.com also has a FANTASTIC deal on all of these models that include free shipping and no sales tax!!

Below are a few product specs on the View 550, 600 MX, and the 425 MX treadmills, so that you can be the judge. Epic is produced by Icon, and this factory has over 200 engineers that help craft their products. Put simply, they are the best designed treadmills in the business. In the past, they have had to be the best because they used the cheapest parts in the business. They have finally discovered that you can find some of the key component parts overseas for less and the eventual cost is less if you put more quality into the machine; so the quality of drive motors, rollers, and other key components are much higher than in the past and it still sells for a value price.

Icon is the largest fitness equipment producer in the world with around $1 billion in sales. In terms of stability, they are the best but overall, their customer service isn’t up to the standards of some of the lower volume producers. Although they have told us they are upgrading their service, it is still a long road to what we would consider good. Although you get a value price for the product, you also get value service, so keep this in mind when buying their machines. Due to the sheer number of units they produce, we pick up support in many cases where this factory leaves off.
