WHAT WE LOVE

Fast running speed • FlexSelect Cushioning • 12% Incline

The 20×60 running surface is generous so you don’t feel squished when running and uses an innovative FlexSelect cushioning system that takes stress off of your hips, knees and ankles. FlexSelect™ cushioning on can be activated for joint support or turned off to approximate an outdoor track if preferred.

The C990 tread can go up to 12 mph and has a 12 degree incline. It' sturdy, durable and has a well sized running deck.

The price provides so many features that aren’t on other comparable models from brands like Lifespan, Sole and Xterra and Sprit in the similar price range

Installation was straight forward, the instructions were simple to follow and it took less than an hour to fully assemble. Although you can opt to buy in-home assembly in the room of your choice.  This is handled by in-house technicians (no third parties)

We found the Nordictrack C 990 is easy to use, and has a great space saver design.  Folding-up is so quick and really easy then to unfold  with a gentle tap with your foot and the deck quietly returns to the floor. The C990 treadmill feels comfortable whether running on or walking,  there was no catching on the belt and it provides an enjoyable work-out at home.

SO IN THE END ── Final thoughts

This is a recommended treadmill. It has a powerful motor, automatic fan, integrated music speakers, a 7” color touch screen and 32 pre-programmed work-outs. Reliable and durable for all but the most intense runners. We recommend it as a buy.

The Nordictrack C990 is one of the best under $1K treadmills available. This is a great machine for light jogging, walking or occasional incline training. If you plan to use the treadmill every day for more than forty minutes or have several people using the machine a step up to the Norictrack Commercial 1650 is highly recommended.
