Treadmill Series by Weslo Cadence

The treadmill series by Weslo Cadence offers a large range of products for the customers to choose from. While every treadmill model has its own features, there are some general specifications that can be expected from a Weslo Cadence Treadmill series.

Expected Specs

Motor: A motor is one of the key elements a buyer would investigate before purchasing their treadmill. A Weslo Cadence Treadmill generally comes with a 1.0 HP motor, whereas top models are also available with 2-3 HP motors.        

Cushioning: The tread belt has been made more comfortable by adding another layer of cushioning to avoid extra stress of knees and feet.

Space utilization: The majority of the Weslo Cadence Treadmills can be folded and thus utilize much less space and are portable as well.

Durability: Most of the Weslo Cadence Treadmills are durable enough to withstand a load of 250 pounds, which is a good number given the technological simplicity

Economic: The best-selling point of this treadmill line lies in its cheap pricing.

Electricity Usage: Many models of these treadmill series will not require the user to plug in the electricity and therefore save up a lot on electricity usage as well.

Some of the treadmills from the Weslo Cadence series have been reviewed below:

Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill

Launched in 2017- Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill is still the company’s best seller. A maximum speed of 10 MPH and priced around $300, this folding treadmill is very suitable for customers who are new to treadmill usage. If someone is low on space, the Weslo Cadence g 5.9 treadmill offers a space-saver design.

The Weslo Cadence g 5.9 treadmill has dimensions of 68″ L x 31″ W x 55.5″ H and a decent monitor system with six pre-installed workout trainer programs, and algorithms that can detect essentials like heart rate monitor as well as distance. The G 5.9 comes with a 2.25 CHP powerful motor that has 1-year warranty as well.

While the cushioning has also been ensured to avoid stress in knees and feet- the Weslo Cadence g 5.9 treadmill’s structure does not vouch much for its durability. This- along with a short track size hinders its usage for long-time running and restricts it to jogging and walking mostly.

  • The Verdict

It can therefore be suggested that while the Weslo Cadence g 5.9 is economical, user friendly, and not very spacious with a tread Area of 16″ x 50″- you do get what you pay for. If the customer is a beginner who wants a small-sized treadmill for basic purposes, then this can be the go-to option. You can also consider the G 5.9i as it has some enhanced features. The G 5.9i has the added option of Bluetooth connectivity as well as increased used weight capacity to 275 lbs.

Weslo Cadence R5.2 Treadmill

This model is a great alternative for the one mentioned above- but with a higher price, though it can always be self-assembled and is not technologically sophisticated which saves some money. The machine comes with a 2.25 HP motor which lets you access higher mph as a user.

As a special feature, the treadmill also has 2 different levels of incline. The best-selling features include a fold-able and space-saving structure, with layered cushioning to avoid joint pains suffered by the user. The downside, however, does include a rather small treading area.

Weslo Cadence 60 CT

This lightweight and compact Weslo treadmill (62″ L x 26.5″ W x 57″ H) have a footprint size of under 62″ x 27″; price around $229 with a motor that offers a top speed of 10MPH and comes with a warranty. Some attractive features of this machine include an auto-incline, and three blue-tinted LCD windows showing time, speed distance, and calories burned.

While the low price and compact shape are positive for low-usage purposes- the track is light weighted and small (14″ x 45″), thus suitable for a walk only. Users have complained of track wobbling as well as noise, and the treadmill does not come with a heartbeat sensor to add to exercise and fitness.

Weslo CardioStride 3.0

Weslo CardioStride is a manual treadmill machine weighing only 60 lbs, with a maximum capacity of 250 pounds only. For the reasons mentioned above, it is also extremely cheap with a price of around $100 only. Due to the compact size (52.5″ L x 27″ W x 42″ H), the machine is suitable for uses who cannot afford bulky equipment in the house, and it comes with a folding design as well.

Due to its manual nature, the electricity usage is also cut down. The design also offers a 15% incline which is most suitable for walking purposes. But this machine is not the right fit for fancy users as it has no console area. It is a very simple treadmill with no motor or other built-in programs. However, it may be suitable for users who are very low on budget.

Weslo Treadmill Crosswalk 5.2t

With a 2.5 HP motor, this treadmill can generate top speeds of around 10MPH. While it is primarily made for walking- jogging and running can also be incorporated as fitness practices on this treadmill. It has comfort cell cushioning and a compact and foldable design dimensioning (55″ L x 29″ W x 68″ H).

Furthermore, the treadmill also comes with four built-in programs, a heart rate sensor, and a maximum 8% incline option as well. It is rich in versatility due to its multifunctionality, as its arms are like an elliptical machine, giving the user a chance to work on the upper and lower body simultaneously.

The downside however is reflected by a lack of warranty on this product. There is only a 90-days coverage on parts and labor on this treadmill. Furthermore, it has a manual incline which reduces the handiness.

Weslo Cadence G40 Treadmill

This treadmill is designed to meet basic user needs and is a good buy for low-budget customers looking for basic entry-level needs, and therefore attracts the user through its price tag. The treadmill has a 2.25 HP motor with 1-year warranty and a blue-tinted LCD display.

  • The New Comfort Cell Cushioning

With a 3-position manual incline, the treadmill has a comfort cell cushioning designed to reduce fatigue for users on a 16″ x 50″ running surface. The treadmill also keeps a technologically interactive approach using a racetrack display. While the design is compact and foldable, the running surface is not adequate for large users, and the incline function operates manually.

Pros and Cons of the Treadmills

Holistically speaking, the Weslo Cadence Treadmills are very compact, and space-saving machines suitable for any user who avoids placing bulky machinery. All the models come with comfortable cell cushioned running tracks, and some have 4-6 options of different types of trainer-designed workout programs to kickstart fitness plans.

All these treadmill models are economically affordable as they lie in a good budget range; some suppliers even provide free shipping. However, some of the models are entry-level machines and you cannot expect much. Users have a complaint of wobbling on high speeds and low weights along with some noise.

The size of the running tracks has also been generally kept rather small in most of the models. This reduces the user mobility on the track and hinders running at high speed as well. Along with that, few models do not come with any kind of in-built programs or consoles and operate purely manually. Treadmill review has called this a downside that repels a consumer.

Our Final Recommendation for Weslo Cadence Treadmills

Our treadmill review suggests that Weslo Treadmills are not very versatile. They do not fulfill the need of every user. Most of the models have a low-price range because that is reflected in the lack of versatility of these machines.

If you are a frequent user looking for a long-lasting buy then Weslo Treadmills may not be the best option. However, if the customer is looking for basic needs and does not have a high budget, then this line of treadmills is a suitable option.

Out of all these models, the Weslo Cadence G 5.9 Treadmill can be considered the reviewer favourite. Even this best of the series treadmill has an average star rating of 4.1 out of 5.
