Occupying the low to mid-price sector of the treadmill market, they tend to be characterized by being feature rich and offering good value for money.
These are the models that we have reviewed:
Epic 600 MX Treadmill
Epic exercise treadmills compete well against the other brands, because they meet customer's expectations. It is a low priced treadmill that has the features customer's demand and Epic's product quality although not up with some of the more expensive brands is continually improving.
While it can't compete with some of the upper market names, for consumers on a budget they are worthy of consideration.
The majority of treadmills in their range span from low cost, entry-level models up to treadmills that you would class in the mid price range. Typically that equates to a price range of $999 to $1500.
If you consider yourself to be a serious fitness enthusiast, a seasoned runner or in any other regard expect that your treadmill will receive heavy use then avoid the lowest priced treadmills in their range.
Of course as is the case with most things, you tend to get what you pay for, but on the whole Epic treadmills offer quite good value for money with features not found on some budget machines of the same price.
