Scouting Report: This treadmill is designed not to take up much space, and can even be rolled out of the way when not in use.
For starters, the Mobvoi Home Treadmill looks great and best of all, it doesn’t take up much space. That’s because the treadmill can be used with or without arms, making it easy to store when I’m not using it. If I don’t attach the arms, I can fold the riser until it’s flush with the treadmill, and then use the built-in wheels to roll it under my sofa, under my bed, or stand it up against the wall in my laundry room. While the ability to move the treadmill out of view is undoubtedly my favorite feature, the Mobvoi only gets better from there.The 2.25HP motor is quiet, so even though I’m listening to music in my headphones, I don’t have to crank up the volume too loud.
I admit it’s not a Peloton, but it doesn’t have the Peloton price or bulkiness either. For such a lightweight and compact treadmill, I thought I would have to sacrifice on performance. The Mobvoi has both walking and running modes. Walking is more my style, and the 5 layers of durable running belt provide more than adequate shock absorption for easy and comfortable movement. A few friends who prefer running have used the running mode, and they say it compares to the larger, bulky treadmills they own. Even at high speeds, the treadmill doesn’t move.
