True Fit­ness Alpine Run­ner

BEST FOR Trail and moun­tain run­ners.

THE GOOD This is a fell run­ner’s dream ma­chine. The ob­vi­ous rea­son to buy it is be­cause it tops out at a mon­strous 30 per cent in­cline, but all our testers were also wowed by its rock­solid build: the 272kg frame doesn’t wob­ble a bit, whether on the level or fully raised. The in­cline mo­tor cranks out enough power to travel from one ex­treme to the other in as lit­tle time as ma­chines with half the in­cline ca­pa­bil­ity, and does so smoothly. Our test model came with the Tran­scend 16 touch­screen con­sole with a built-in HDTV tuner and a plethora of work­outs, in­clud­ing climbs up fa­mous mon­u­ments such as the Eif­fel Tower (324m) and the 192m Gate­way Arch in St Louis, US.

THE GRIPE With the deck at 30 per cent, your feet will be nearly level with the con­sole and your head will be in the rafters – your ceil­ings will need to be at least three me­tres high.
