Further down the page, you’ll find some explanations regarding the key similarities and differences between the ProForm 995i and the ProForm 905 CST.
Bearing a spacious deck size of 20’W x 60’L inches, the two treadmills accommodate people of most heights. That standard belt area provides users with enough legroom to run long strides, no matter if they’re with short limbs or longer legs. It makes you safe and comfortably do your workouts without fearing falling off the track.
Both support a max weight of 350 lbs, being an ideal treadmill for a wide user range. Heavy runners can step on the machines and start their weight loss plan with confidence. Most models in the same class come with a 300 lbs limit, so it’s very nice of the two models to offer a 50 lbs higher capacity.
The top speed of 12 MPH is an amazing rate for those interested in taking up intense training variables. Compared to many maxing out at 10 MPH, these two units can keep up with the most hardcore sprinters out there.
Powerful is another feature they share in common. Both are run on a 3.0 CHP motor, delivering stability throughout long sessions. Many specialists consider the rate of 3.0 a bare minimum muscle for good-quality home running equipment. The machines can sustain high speeds without posing hiccups or pauses while producing minimal noise.
Yes, that’s it. The 3.0 CHP motor is nicely quiet. The consistent whirring sound aside, we didn’t notice any cranking or screeching noise. The whole training process was a smooth experience from end to end.
While the ProForm 995i offers 15 incline options, its competitor gives out a max incline of 12%. With the first one, you can enjoy more extreme uphill challenges and burn more serious calories.
There are 30 onboard workouts on both topical treadmills for users to choose from, including calorie-burning and GoogleMap-based programs. You can select a daily routine to follow or take up some fun challenges to target your fitness goals.
These two units are integrated with a cool air fan, which helps cool down your body and the atmosphere around you. However, we realized that the 905 CST workout fan didn’t put out a bunch of air. We mean, it works less effectively than the latter one.
The ProForm 905-CST includes a 5-inch backlit display, showing speed, time, heart rate, but not your pace. Meanwhile, its rival’s 7-inch LCD screen shows all data of your process. Moreover, we find the CST screen is slightly lackluster, whereas the 995i’s delivers easier read of stats and more vivid images.
While you need to plug your phone into the 905 to hear your tunes from its speakers, the 995i comes with Bluetooth speakers so that no wire is needed. All you have to do is connect your smart devices to the treadmill, play some melodies, and hike. Good music will give you extra boost as you’re working out.
Either of the two models is incorporated with water bottle cubbies on two sides of the display and a tablet holder under it. The convenient location makes sure your device and gadgets won’t block any of the screens.
The sad news is that neither of them includes a USB port. Some may be fine with this lack, others may not. We belong to the latter case. We would like to jog while surfing our feeds and checking notifications. If our phones run out of battery, we can’t do so.
Both brands cover consumers’ purchases with a lifetime frame & motor, 3-year parts, and 1-year labor warranty. Obviously, nothing can’t beat the lifetime warranty, and the labor of one year is standard.
One thing to note is most similar models offer a 2-year coverage on parts. So, the companies give better reassurance and get your backs longer than their opponents.
Lengthy warranties also mean that your treadmill can handle the workload of repeated use over the long haul.
