NordicTrack T8.0 Review & Ratings

Share our review of the NordicTrack T8.0 treadmill


T8.0 ConsoleThe NordicTrack T8.0 is the top treadmill from the T series. The 8.0 has fairly good specs, but is priced rather high. It uses a 3.0 CHP DURX™ Commercial Pro motor to power its 20" x 60" tread belt. The cushion used on the deck is called DuraStride™ Response Cushioning. This cushion reacts to your stride to minimize impact on your joints when you are running. The deck can incline up to 12% and is able to fold up for storage. The maximum weight capacity of the machine is 350 lbs, which is fairly good. The T8.0 has iFit Live capability, but charges extra to have it included on the machine. Really the T8.0 uses a multi-window LED display so using iFit Live on that screen is just not as good as it would be on other models from NordicTrack that automatically include iFit Live.

The T8.0 improves a bit on the T7.0 in a couple of areas. The motor of the T8.0 is slightly more powerful and the tread belt of the T8.0 is also longer. One of the bigger differences however would be the deck cushioning system. The T8.0 uses a different system to reduce impact on joints and there is a noticeable difference. The screen display is also more helpful and easier to use on the T8.0 than the T7.0. When it comes right down to it though, the T8.0 is NOT worth the extra $600 over the T7.0.

The number of improved specs on the T8.0, while nice, is not worth such a drastic price jump. There may come a sale sometime where you can find the T8.0 more affordable, but the improvements made to the T8.0 are maybe worth ~$150, not $600.
