Weslo Crosswalk 5.2T Treadmill Review
The Weslo Crosswalk 5.2T Treadmill is an upgrade to Weslo’s budget Cadence G 5.9. The Crosswalk has nearly the same dimensions as the Cadence but boasts extra features including a shock absorption system and arm bars to give your upper arms a workout while you jog.
- Treadmill Dimensions: 48 x 23 x 7 inches
- Belt Width: 16 inches
- Treadmill Weight: 129 pounds
- Weight Limit: 250 pounds
- Max Pace: 10 MPH
On Sale – The Weslo Crosswalk is a budget treadmill with some of the features typically found in mid-range treadmills such as a shock absorption feature. It is currently on sale for around $300, and is an excellent value for that price.
Full digital display – The Weslo Crosswalk has a full digital display showing statistics such as calories burned, time elapsed, distance ran, and MPH as well as having a heart rate monitor.
Collapsable – The Weslo Crosswalk easily folds up to save space. The dimensions of the treadmill make it ideal for narrow spaces and a good choice when free space is in short supply.
Sturdy – The included shock absorption system makes the Crosswalk better able to stand up to punishment than other budget treadmills, and takes pressure off your joints.
Runs quiet – Does not make much noise. Even at higher speeds the Crosswalk will make little noise.
Only two incline settings – While it is very easy to alter the incline, there are only two incline settings. This is disappointing as the Crosswalk is more suited for heavy use than other budget treadmills, and dedicated runners will miss this option.
Limited as a midrange treadmill – The CrossWalk is a bit feature limited compared to other mid-range treadmills, lacking features such as a robust incline control system and a headphone jack to play music. This is excusable as it is currently on sale for budget prices, but better options exist at its usual price.
The Weslo Crosswalk fits into an interesting niche. It is small and compact like most budget treadmills, but it does have some extras usually missing from treadmills in this category such as a shock absorption system and arm bars.
The Crosswalk’s sticker price is around five-hundred dollars, and at that price it is inferior to other mid-range treadmills such as the Gold’s Gym Trainer 720 or the ProForm 505. It is currently for sale (as of 4/13/16) at a price of around $300 however, and it is a good value at that price.
