Reebok TT2.0 Treadmill Review

One of the best known names in home fitness, Reebok have been making C.V fitness equipment for quite some time now with their more recent models delivering some of the best value for money out there. Having reviewed other models in their Titanium (TT) series we were very much looking forward to having the mid-point treadmill of range, the TT.20, at Treadmill Running Machine Reviews towers to see how it measures up.

Now that we’re used to the concept of Reebok assembly guides having no diagrams or words, but rather clear pictures the assembly of the TT2.0 treadmill was a straightforward job that took just over half an hour with no difficulties to mention. Anyone who’s remotely familiar with flat-pack furniture shouldn’t struggle here but as always we’d strongly recommend that this is made a two person job as there are a couple of stages where having two is much easier than trying to go it alone.

Looks-wise the TT2.0 fits in with the rest of the range and has a nice clean black and white colour scheme which looks really fresh and certainly makes it look more modern that the more traditional black and dull grey colours that treadmill manufacturers tend to go for. It looks solid too and just sitting there on the floor gives the impression that this machine has been designed to see some proper action.

While it looks nice, it’s what’s underneath that counts and from that point of view and taking into account price point the TT2.0’s spec looks pretty good. Powered by a very respectable 2.75 horsepower motor, a top speed of 20kph (12.4mph) and 16 levels of incline it should be fast enough and powerful enough to withstand some serious use and provide a proper challenge even to veteran runners. The 51cm x 150cm (20” x 59’’) running deck is wide and long enough to accommodate even very tall users and is supported by Reebok’s Triple Flex cushioning system which imitates the sort of thing you find in commercial machines. This cushioning system provides a soft landing, a firmer midstep and a very firm push which makes running on it a very nice experience indeed.

The speed and incline have all the usual controls that you’d expect on a treadmill at this level including handlebar controls, instant access keys and the standard up/down keys on the main console unit, for both speed and incline functions. Transition between speeds and incline levels is nice and quick and shouldn’t present any issues for those wishing to engage in some intense, short burst interval training. The steepest level of incline is very much middle ground, being not as steep as some, and steeper than others. While it does lean towards the easier end of the range of inclines we’ve seen, it’s still respectable and will be more than adequate for most runners that would buy this machine.

In terms of workouts there’s plenty to choose from with 6 preset programmes (divided into 3.5km walk, Hill Climb, Hill Run, Interval, Rolling and Weight Loss), all of which are scalable for difficulty, heart rate control workouts (several of them), four user-defined workouts that are easy to programme due to the ‘i-drive’ dial in the middle of the console and a selection of four difficulty levels of the Random workout setting. We really like the concept of the Random workouts as you simply select from four levels of difficulty and then the computer runs a random programme. This function really should go a long way to keeping things interesting. It’s simple but it’s very useful in mixing things up and a feature that we’d like to see on more treadmills.

Unusually, there are 5 user profiles on the TT2.0 which again is a really nice touch. Most other treadmills offer a maximum of 2 user profiles which often isn’t enough for a family treadmill. Setting these up is quick and simple, again down to that ‘i-Drive’ dial and well worth doing as the computer uses your personal information to improve the accuracy of the training data. There’s also a USB port built in which you can use to charge your tablet/phone, though it doesn’t connect to any external devices in any way.

The display on the console itself is nice and clear and easy to read even under the bright lights of the office. It provides all the usual feedback you’d expect to see including calories, speed, incline and so on. Lastly, the TT2.0 has a 3.5mm jack input and two speakers, a cooling fan, 2 bottle holders and a USB charger.

With a 10 year motor, 2 year on-site parts and labour warranty, lots of functions and a nice, comfortable running deck the Reebok TT2.0 is definitely one to consider if you’re looking for a comfortable, reliable and relatively feature rich treadmill from a top brand.
