Update: This model has been discontinued. To find a suitable replacement, check out our treadmill finder here.

The Epic 450 MX SpaceSaver treadmill is a discount option that’s best for walking and light jogging. If it’s regularly used to support running, this machine’s motor will be strained. The 450 MX has a standard-size belt, a 10% incline, and eight impressive preset programs. It scores below average mainly because of its short parts warranty.

What We Like

    • Price: The 450 MX sells for less than $800 online.
    • Programs: Six built-in personal training programs can automatically adjust the treadmill’s incline and speed. Two heart rate control programs are also included; pulse is monitored through handlebar grips.
    • Console: The console screen can easily be read by people of all different heights. It includes a fan to keep trainees cool and comfortable.
    • Motor: The 2.25 CHP motor supports a user weight of up to 300 pounds. It’s sold with a 10-year warranty.
    • Track: The track measures 55”x20”. It’s long enough for most individuals to walk or jog with a natural stride.
    • Space-saving: The Epic 450 MX can be folded with Easy Drop self-folding technology.

What We Don’t Like

  • Cushioning: The basic cushioning on this treadmill is designed for light to moderate exercise, not for heavy impact.
  • Warranty: The 90-day coverage for parts and labor is too short. The motor, however, is protected for ten years.

Our Verdict

The Epic 450 MX treadmill is a low-priced cardio trainer with above-average interactive programs. However, its short warranty makes it a risky buy. The 600 MX has a longer warranty and looks like a better overall value. It’s also worth checking out other treadmill brands for a comparison of standard features.
