Smooth 9.17 HRO Treadmill Review

The Smooth 9.17 HRO Treadmill combining the Im-pression deck suspension with an orthopedic tread belt for the ultimate in comfort.

Combining advanced fitness features with stability and performance we have the Smooth 9.17 HRO treadmill.

It sports a solid frame, spacious running deck, and commercial components. The 3.0 HP continuous duty motor should provide years of maintenance free service with a high horsepower output for all types of users.

The frame is a uni-weld steel construction, with no exposed bolts to loosen and rattle over time and has a lifetime warranty.

The “Impression” shock absorption technology is soft, yet stable when your foot strikes the deck. Rubber isolators cushion the impact and transmit absorption throughout the length of the deck. This eliminates side to side motion that is harmful to joints, knees and ankles. Pressure is relieved on the lower back, muscles and tendons.

The elevation mechanism is via worm gear providing 2000 lbs of thrust throughout entire range of motion (enough for the heaviest individual). This will ensure no hesitation while elevating treadmill.

The belt comprises a 2-Ply, 100% Polyester low friction sole backing with black PVC non-slip beam top. The Whisper weave 20 degree seamless diagonally fused belt is pre-lubricated with silicon. The whole results in a long life belt that is whisper quiet.

The treadmill also has a precision front roller/pulley assembly with perfectly trued front roller.This will result in a quieter treadmill with less vibration.

The PWM circuit board (Pulse Width Modulation) is silent in operation with no electrical “hum.” You get more power without the danger of throwing circuit breakers in your house. The circuit gives a very quiet yet powerful motor operation.

The large control panel / display indicates time, interval time, speed, distance, calories, incline, pulse, and program. Large buttons, well-organized panel and easy-to-read displays make operating the treadmill easy.

You can adjust preset programs on the fly. Quickly set (or reset) speed, incline, time or pulse rate while you’re in motion.

The heart rate control allows you to maintain your target heart rate throughout your fitness workout.

The treadmill determines a preset maximum target heart rate based upon your sex, height, weight and age. The HRC will then monitor your heart rate, and adjust your workout to keep you in your target heart rate zone.

The wireless control works through a receiver inside the console. The wireless chest strap transmits your heart rate to the receiver in the unit. The unit then adjusts the intensity of your fitness workout automatically until your heart rate is in your preset zone.

The Smooth 9.17 HRO treadmill is covered by a warranty which includes a lifetime cover on the motor and frame.
