The 9.27 treadmill provides a comfortable foundation for your cardio fitness or weight loss goals. With our patented shock absorption, a smaller size, and just the right combination of features, the 9.27 fits into your home and healthy lifestyle with ease. Full length handlebars, aluminum side rails. Patented Ground Effects Impact Control Technology reduces joint stress, minimizes fatigue and helps prevent injuries. Shock absorbers at the front of the deck offer extra cushioning to absorb impact, while a pivot point in the back supports a full range-of-motion and provides a solid surface, but with some give, for an easy push off. Stride Support technology senses the changes in your stride velocity and adjusts the belt speed up to 57 times a second at 12 mph.
