Verdict: Highly Recommended
The Smooth 7.35 treadmill is a high end premium home treadmill that seems especially designed with runners in mind.
You get an extra long deck to pick up your pace, an industrial strength deck that can take a pounding and advanced cushioning to protect your joints. Plus the side incline/speed controls are handy so you don’t throw off your stride.
And you can’t beat a 7 year parts warranty. No other brand in the industry is offering this right now. For a treadmill under $1600 – a great value buy.
Product Pros And Cons
Smooth 7.35 Treadmill
1) Extra Long 62″ Belt
This the longest belt that Smooth offers and one of the longest in the industry. It gives you extra room to move and pick up the pace. Runners and taller users will especially appreciate the extra space.
2) 7 Year Parts Warranty
While Smooth offers long warranties on all their treadmills, they’re currently offering an extra-long 7 year parts warranty on the 7.35 treadmill. This is an incredible value and pretty much unheard-of since most parts warranties give you 1 -3 years at most. This gives you an idea of the quality of parts here.
3) Industrial Strength Frame Gives Added Stability
At a whopping 271 lbs, the 7.35 is very heavy and stable. It uses an industrial strength frame so it can take a pounding without giving out.
Plus it has the strong 3.0 HP motor power to back it up – so you won’t feel like your treadmill is going to give out on you when you really test its limits.
4) Runner-Appropriate Cushioning System
The 7.35 uses the Im-Pression Shock absorption cushioning which gives a softer cushioning for where your foot lands and a firmer cushioning surface for where it pushes off (this is very similar to what health club brands like Precor are putting on their treadmills). This is a more advanced cushioning system that gives you great protection for your joints, especially if you’re a runner.
5) One Touch Incline / Speed Controls on the Side Handrails
Instead of reaching forward, you can just change the speed or incline from the side handrails controls. It may seem like a little thing, but it can be very handy as reaching forward can sometimes throw off your stride.The controls are more sleek and ergonomic than the lesser priced models.
6) Mp3 Port With Speakers
You can plug in your Mp3 player like your iPod and listen to your favorite workout music while you workout. This can make your workouts go by faster and feel a lot more enjoyable
7) Backlit Console With Constant Feedback
We really like the console on the 7.35. It has a bright blue 6.5 inch backlit window which makes it easy to read your stats. You get constant feedback throughout your workout including calories burned, distance, time, incline and speed. You can also choose several workout programs designed to burn a set amount of calories.
