Detailed Feature Analysis: What Sets Them Apart

Motor Performance and Power

The motor is the heart of any treadmill, and both models have powerful motors designed to support long-distance running, high-intensity interval training, and everything in between. The ProForm 9000's 3.6 CHP motor is robust and reliable, while the NordicTrack 1750 has a slightly smaller HP - at 3.5.

Our SOLE F80 has a similar 3.5 HP motor that is powerful and can provide a top speed of 12 mph while still being quiet. At $1,599.99, our model is also a lot cheaper than the ProForm and NordicTrack machines. 

Console and Technology Integration

The ProForm 9000's console features a 22" HD touchscreen, which is large and intuitive, making it easy to navigate through different workout and entertainment tools. On the other hand, the NordicTrack 1750 features a 14" HD touchscreen, which, while smaller, still provides a crisp and clear display for all your workout needs.

The difference in screen size could be a deciding factor for those who prioritize a larger display for a more engaging workout experience. Both treadmills offer WiFi connectivity and integrate with iFit.

As for SOLE, our entry-level treadmill - F63 - has a compact 6.5" Backlit LCD while the F89 model has the biggest touchscreen, at 21.5". All SOLE treadmills - except for the F63 and F65 -  have WiFi and Bluetooth connectivity. 

Comfort and Usability

Comfort is key for long workout sessions, with both treadmills providing a comfortable running surface. 

The ProForm 9000 offers a roomy 20" x 60" tread belt paired with ReBound Pro™ Cushioning, which helps reduce the impact on your joints. Similarly, the NordicTrack’s 20” x 60” running belt has Runners Flex™ cushioning which allows you to customize its firmness based on your preference, simulate different terrains, and provide a softer landing.

SOLE treadmills have the unique Cushion Flex Whisper Deck technology that can reduce impact on your joints by up to 40% when compared to running on asphalt. We also have bigger running belts such as the F85 model, which comes with a 22” x 60” belt. 

Space and Storage Options

Space can be an obstacle, and the ProForm 9000 and NordicTrack Commercial 1750 address this by offering the SpaceSaver® Design with EasyLift™ Assist feature. You can easily fold and store the treadmill when it's not in use. 

Both treadmills have built-in accessory trays and holders to ensure that your water bottle, towel, or smartphone are within reach during your workout.

SOLE treadmills are unique because you get to choose between folding or non-folding designs. If space isn’t an issue and you want a premium treadmill, you can opt for the non-foldable ST90 or TT8. 

Warranty Period

A good warranty can give you peace of mind - both ProForm and NordicTrack offer solid warranties on their treadmills. Both models provide a 10-year frame warranty, 2-year parts warranty, and 1-year labor warranty. 

But at SOLE, we offer lifetime warranty for the treadmill frame and motor. 

Additional Features

Beyond the core features, both treadmills offer additional perks that enhance your workout experience. They both have built-in speakers, allowing you to listen to your favorite tunes or follow along with iFit trainers without the need for headphones. Additionally, they come with cooling fans to help you stay comfortable, and an integrated tablet holder for multitasking during your workout.

The ProForm 9000 takes entertainment a step further with its larger screen, which is great for watching shows or following scenic routes on iFit. The NordicTrack 1750, while having a smaller screen, compensates with its automatic trainer control, which adjusts the speed and incline to match the terrain of the iFit workouts you're following.

Expert Opinion: Our Take on the Best Buy

Just based on the features that you will get from the price paid, ProForm 9000 seems like a good choice. This is because ProForm provides a more powerful motor and larger display console than NordicTrack Commercial 1750 at the same price of $1,999. Getting the same warranty periods for the frame, parts, and labor is another bonus. 

Why is SOLE a Better Choice?

We believe that our SOLE treadmills are better in a few aspects. First, all our SOLE treadmills have a lifetime warranty for the frames and motors. It means that you’ll have peace of mind even after using the equipment for intense workout sessions. You will also get multiple-year warranties for parts and labor; these warranties differ according to the models. 

Next, all SOLE equipment (including bikes and ellipticals) will get you free access to SOLE+ fitness app. Unlike the iFit subscription that expires after the 30-day free trial, our app is forever free and you’ll have access to hundreds of fitness video classes covering basic to advanced routines. Most importantly, all SOLE treadmill features can be used without any monthly subscription fees. So, this is where you’ll save tons of money. 

And when you compare the features directly, you can get most of ProForm 9000’s capabilities on the SOLE F80 model. With the slightly smaller yet powerful 3.5 HP motor to the larger running deck that is 22” x 60”, it’s a piece of machinery that can make your workout sessions more productive and comfortable. The best part is that the F80 is cheaper by $400 too! 

These features, combined with competitive pricing, make SOLE treadmills the top choice for those looking for durable, powerful, and high-quality fitness equipment.
