Further down the page, you’ll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the ProForm 995i and the ProForm 705 CST.
But before checking out explanations regarding their specs and features here’s a table that summarizes the main technical summary sheet for these 2 treadmills:
The deck size of 60’L x 20’W inches is pretty standard for most commercial treadmills. The 995i and 705 provide consumers with plenty of legroom to comfortably do their workouts. Tall runners with long limbs can stretch their legs properly without falling out of space.
While the ProForm 705 CST can hold up a 325-lbs runner maximum, its competitor supports a limit of 350 lbs. That means those weighing more than 300 lbs can’t step on the 705 CST.
Both are able to reach the top speed of 12 MPH. These two units would truly satisfy the most hardcore runners. Should you be into marathon training or mountain running, we bet you’ll love them.
The 995i is more powerful thanks to the 3.0 CHP motor. This machine can tackle more workloads at high-speed levels than the latter one. The 2.75-CHP 705 CST may overheat if we run it at the highest speed. Plus, one thing to keep in mind is that the stronger the motor, the more stable the treadmill. In other words, 995i will provide greater steadiness throughout long-running sessions.
Normally, a strong motor is synonymous with distracting noise. However, ProForm’s machines are remarkably silent. We could hardly notice a screeching or cracking sound but some consistent whirring sound you can expect from any treadmill.
A max incline grade of 12% is available on the folding 705 CST – a decent range in the industry. Meanwhile, the ProForm 995i offers 15 incline options, allowing users to level up their workout variability and intensity. The latter will add extra uphill challenges so that you can burn more serious calories.
The 995i provides 30 pre-installed routines, whereas 22 onboard programs are integrated into the fellow opposition. With a great variety of workouts, the first one suits people of the most intensity levels. It will spice up your daily routine and give you a hand to target any fitness goal.
Another thing the two models share in common is built-in speakers placed on either side of the console. These speakers have high quality and the sound remains fresh even at high volume levels. Good music will spark motivation, being a nice boost to your endurance throughout a long session.
While the 705 CST includes a 5-inch backlit screen, its rival comes with a 7-inch LCD display. We found it easier to read our workout data and make selections on the second one’s screen thanks to the high resolution. However, many similar models in the market are already incorporated with a fancy touchscreen. Perhaps it’s time ProForm made an improvement in its treadmill screen.
Either of these two units offers good storage. You would have a tablet holder carry your smart devices and bottle cubbies hold your water bottles. Users can catch some fav shows or scroll the news feed while lightly hiking.
Neither of them includes a USB port, which is not really a problem. We’re actually ok with this lack, but many may find it quite inconvenient. That’s because you can’t use your phone while walking if it’s being charged. Moreover, in case your phone’s battery runs out as you’re running, you’ll have to get off the treadmill to charge it. Some may feel lazy to pause their running and start it again.
The 995i comes with lifetime coverage on frame & motor, 3 years on parts, and one year on labor. Meanwhile, once you’ve purchased the 705 CST, you’ll embrace a lifetime frame & motor, 2-year parts, and a 1-year labor warranty.
The first treadmill will have your back one year longer regarding parts protection. ProForm seems to put a lot of confidence in the 995i’s components.
By and large, they offer extremely sweet warranties. Both are built with care and durability in mind; therefore, they will go with consumers for a very long period.
