Best Treadmill for Zwift running

Ah ok, very good, that burst the myth I had in my head that the treadmill worked like say a smart turbo trainer and ERG. So that does open up the number of treadmills then.


Read some other threads I’ve commented on as these cover your options.

You MAY need something to report speed. Many treadmills are smart enough to report running parameters to zwift.

I was replying about the treadmill the OP mentioned which means they WILL need something to report speed.

It’s not a smart treadmill.

I stand corrected. Sorry.

Hey @Niall_O_Gorman_AMS ! The treadmill options are endless and there are a lot of good recommendations in this thread already, but I thought I would share this article as well in terms of what Zwift has outlined for Compatible Running Hardware. Some key areas to research for treadmills specifically are cost, belt size, cushioning, size, weight, warranty, motor, max speed/incline, etc. Some treadmills require an additional membership to use certain functionality within the console, so that’s important to keep in mind as well. I wish the perfect (and affordable) treadmill existed, but it’s slightly different for everyone. And I wouldn’t count out other treadmill brands not listed such as the one you suggested, but you may just have to do some additional research or use a footpod. Hope this helped even a little!



Are there any plans to update that article you’ve linked?

It’s woefully out of date given the numbers of new Zwift compatible treadmills on the market and the demise of some of the running pods you’ve mentioned.

Also the numbers of watches with virtual run modes is far greater.

I know you’ll never be able to keep it ultra accurate but that article must be closing in on 5 years out of date.

Hi there. Don’t mean to be rude, but if you’re not an AI bot, you certainly sound like one.
