If you have been running for a while on the road or are using a basic treadmill at home and are looking for something with a little more to offer then the 3G Cardio 80i Fold Flat Treadmill is worth a look.
3G cardio are a fairly new company in the fitness and treadmill market. They offer higher spec treadmills like the 80i Fold Flat treadmill to be used in private homes. There are many brands who claim to deliver this higher quality standard with additional specs but few manage to achieve it.
This treadmill is for those looking for a comprehensive high-level workout.
3G Cardio 80i Fold Flat Treadmill
One of the first things that stands out about the 80i fold flat treadmill is that it was built with runners in mind. 3G cardio themselves point this out. It might sound like a strange thing to say about a running machine but it’s true. If you are a runner you will appreciate the features, specs and quality of this model.

What’s different about this treadmill?
Apart from the user features we have already mentioned the biggest unique feature about this model is the dual folding technology. A lot of treadmill manufacturers claim that there design is the best and will offer the smallest storage space in your home.
The 3G cardio system however actually does it. So what is the dual folding technology?
It means it actually folds flat as you can see in the picture above. Most folding treadmills only fold upright so they are still quite large when it comes to storage. This one folds completely flat and can simply slide under a bed or into a suitable storage space.
But will I still get a workout?
3g Cardio themselves call it “A Runner’s Treadmill”. The 3.0HP motor packs plenty of power which is great as some cheaper treadmills don’t offer this level of output.
There is 60″ of running space on the deck so that should be enough for most runners. It’s also very robust which makes it very stable. This again can sometimes be an issue with cheaper models which can be unstable and movement issues when in use.
In terms of speed the 3G cardio 80i clocks up 11MPH at full speed and also offers up to 15% incline. Great for hill training or just a little extra intensity in your workout.
3G cardio also claim to have the best-designed suspension system on the market. We did find that the suspension was very soft and gave great support and cushioning during the workout so we can’t argue with that.
Whats the verdict?
As you can probably tell by now we really liked this treadmill. It offers all the features of models which are more expensive than it. But it also offers the home use and space savings options of smaller models which don’t tend to have such high specs and features.
It lands nicely in the middle and for that reason we would highly recommend you consider it as a serious option. Check out the latest sale prices below.[thrive_link color=’orange’ link=’http://amzn.to/2mNanH3′ target=’_self’ size=’medium’ align=’full’]Check out the latest pricing[/thrive_link]
