Xterra treadmills are relatively new to the fitness equipment market, owned by a large company called Dyaco based in Taiwan. The company also owns two other popular brands, Sole Fitness and Spirit Fitness, which we also cover on this site.
Like some of the other treadmill manufacturers, including NordicTrack and ProForm, Xterra offers a number of choices, which can be good or bad, depending on your preferences. Personally I don’t like too many different options as it makes it harder to make a decision.
As of 2021 the company offers about 10 different treadmill models in three series: Compact Series, Sport Series & Performance Series.
The Compact Series includes the TR150, TR200 and TRX1000. The base Xterra TR150 is the most affordable and compact model, with a 16″ x 50″ running surface, 2.25 HP motor, 3 levels of manual incline, a 5″ display and 12 built in workout programs.
The Sports Series includes the TR300, TR6.4 and TR6.6, and features stronger motors, larger belts and more incline than the Compact Series. The TR6.6 has a huge 20″ x 60″ running deck.
The Performance Series includes the TRX2500, TRX3500, TRX4500 and TRX5500. These improve on the Sports Series treadmills with added durability as well as additional features and capabilities.
The Xterra treadmills range in price from $499 to $1999 on sale. As such they compete directly with brands like Horizon, Sole, NordicTrack and ProForm, which also offer a number of different models in that price range.
Some of the features you’ll find on all Xterra models include at least some incline capability, at least a 250 lb. weight capacity, very strong warranties, advanced cushioned decks, heavy duty steel frames, easy fold up and down capability and widescreen LCD displays.
As you move up through the lineup, you get larger displays, more advanced cushioning, larger decks, more incline, stronger motors and higher max weight capacities.
One of the advantages of buying an Xterra treadmill is the fact that there is free shipping and a 60 day money back guarantee. That’s very appealing and is the reason why they are becoming more popular these days.
The more advanced models also include Bluetooth capability, which allows you to sync with the Xterra App and track all of your workout progress.
Xterra is a good choice if you’re looking for a solid machine for walking or jogging and you don’t want or need all of the extra bells and whistles. All three of the Dyaco brands are made well, and Xterra is no exception. However it’s important to keep in mind that for a comparable price you can get more from brands like NordicTrack, such as decline capability, more built-in workouts and tools such as iFit which allow you to run anywhere in the world, create custom programs and share your results with others.
Still, Xterra is not a bad option in the price category.
We’ll be reviewing all of the Xterra treadmills shortly as they are made available to us. For now if you are interested in purchasing one of these you can visit the official site. They are currently offering some bundle packages that you can take advantage of.
