Polar H9 strap runner treadmill

Echelon Fitness UK announced the launch of their smart folding treadmill, further underlining ongoing commitment to bringing the most accessible and convenient, yet innovative at-home immersive fitness technologies to the UK market. This compact and smart treadmill will be a welcome addition to the range.

The launch builds upon the success and appeal seen for Echelon Fitness’ range of Connect Bikes and their Smart Rower as they continue to build out an extensive portfolio of workout solutions for UK consumers.

The Echelon Stride sees functionality and technology meet intelligent design through a patented three-step auto-fold mechanism. The ultimate space saver, built-in wheels and a lightweight frame combine to afford unrivalled maneuverability. Folding to just 10 inches, the Echelon Stride will enable consumers to conveniently store the treadmill horizontally or vertically with ease.

With a healthy 55-inch x 20-inch running deck, the ergonomic Stride treadmill also boasts an impressive array of wider features including:

  • Smart technology - the Stride comes with an 18.5 inch integrated LED readout display delivering live data around heart rate, distance, incline, time, speed and calorie burn.
  • Functionality and features – with a maximum speed of 12 mph and a maximum incline of 10%, the Stride’s handlebars double up as a convenient way to toggle between speeds and inclines, and as heart rate sensors.
  • A sleek, sophisticated build - when assembled, the 69-inch x 31-inch x 49-inch steel build treadmill includes a generous ‘step-off’ area on each side, as well as a built-in safety stop lanyard. 
  • Hundreds of live and on-demand classes – the Echelon Stride connects via Bluetooth to the Echelon Fit App, with the ability to tap into an expansive range of run-based classes. These are delivered by world class instructors to suit your style, accessed through your tablet or smartphone.
  • Versatility - from endurance and interval runs, to immersive scenic runs that transport you to picturesque trails and walkways around the globe, there’s even a versatile range of off-treadmill classes to tap into, from yoga to Pilates to boxing and more.
  • A community, and personalised data at your fingertips – users can compete against friends, family and the wider global Echelon community on a motivating leaderboard, and will receive personalised performance reports, to track progress in real-time.

Speaking on the launch, Angelo Ramsbott, President at Echelon Fitness commented: “Following the success of Stride in the US, we’re delighted to now bring the product to UK consumers. Convenience and accessibility have always been things we stand by in everything we do, and the Stride is proof once again that these things needn’t come at a compromise in terms of quality and design.” 

He added: “The vision has always been to support and champion our global communities with the very best workout solutions, and in the UK this is an exciting next chapter in doing just that.”

The Echelon Stride Treadmill costs £1,599 and payment plans are available from £67 a month. Subscription to Echelon’s hub of live and on-demand workouts starts from just £24.99 a month. 

The inclusive nature of Echelon’s ‘United’ subscription model means one membership works for all equipment, including their Connect Bikes and Smart Rower.
