Advantages or Pros:

  • The one thing that you will like is the fact that it can be folded very easy, neatly and flat so that it is completely flat with the console and in line with the running deck as outlined in the images further below.
  • The incline is also electronic and programmable which is a major plus when you don’t want the hassle of having to change the incline manually
  • You get lots of different choices throughout for building your cardiovascular fitness with 15 different levels of incline to choose from and also 16 different user programmes to work through depending on how hard you want to work. The programmes include a manual, 10 pre-set, 3 user settings, your pulse control and also your body fat analysis.
  • No assembly work is needed (unlike many other cheaper brands) as it is more or less built and ready to go once delivered so no time is wasted here
  • There are the built-in speakers, Bluetooth and MP3 connectivity that will allow you to listen to your favourite tunes and to keep you motivated as you complete your training regimes and it offers a speed level operation from 1kmph up to 13kmph
  • Overall, we found to be a reliable and great feature rich performing treadmill and does exactly what you need it do and comes at a much more affordable cost range for the average home owner and the safety key is great to have especially if you have children about.

Disadvantages or Cons:

  • You are limited to a running speed of 13km per hour only so if you wish to run faster than this, then you should start looking further below
  • Limited also to just 6 functions on the console as other models can offer a higher set of functions to keep track of your workouts and fitness levels.
  • As it weighs over 50kg, it will be difficult to move it upstairs if that is where you intend to use it so please bear this is mind.
  • You don’t get a water bottle holder to keep you saturated for long distance running.
  • Minor issues have been reported about the belt which needs to be tensioned or adjusted from time to time and it cannot be folded upright (only flat down)

Price Guide:

  • The price guide for this Roger Black Easy Fold Treadmill when last seen on sale with Argos at the time of this review was in the £290 to £330 price range which can be double checked below if you wish to take a closer look

  1. Excellent review you have written up here for the roger black treadmill. This treadmill has ticked all boxes for me right now concerning the kind of treadmill I want and I’m sure I will get particularly from this brand. I just started my working out back and I want to set up a mini working out gym in my home and that’s the reason I want to get this treadmill. Going by the price range, the easy fold electronic inclined treadmill is great and It is just perfect for me. Great post! Cheers!
