“Overall, it’s a sleek looking treadmill,” Sullivan added. “We know that there’s some pretty good quality behind it for $2,500 bucks.”
Having to pay for a $40 monthly subscription to access many of the treadmill’s features is one of the drawbacks.
The Big Guy team was also surprised – in a bad way – how little cushioning the treadmill offered.
“It has some cool, futuristic features in its console and design, but it’s a lot of pay, pay, pay,” Sullivan said. “That’s what Pelton is. They’re known for their classes, their app.
“We were surprised that the Peloton Tread 3500 has an extremely hard deck with little to no suspension.”
