BEST FOR Houses with sleep­ing babies. THE GOOD ‘This thing fo­cuses on what’s im­por­tant: the feel of the run,’ said one tester. It proved to be the qui­etest ma­chine we tested, and the thick, four-ply belt made for ninja-like foot­falls. The L9 is also quick to re­spond to speed and in­cline changes; run­ners were pleas­antly sur­prised at how rapidly it re­acted to big vari­a­tions when do­ing in­ter­vals. They also liked that the dis­play flashes un­til the belt reaches its des­ti­na­tion, so you know when you’ve reached your de­sired speed or slope. Un­like other ma­chines, the L9 lets you hit top speed and in­cline at the same time – a combo that would tax even the world’s best moun­tain run­ners. Our test model came with a ‘car­dio con­sole’ (four set­ups are avail­able), which pri­ori­tises heart-rate-based train­ing pro­grammes. THE GRIPE The tiny fan is poor. You have to stand right above the con­sole to even feel it.
