The treadmill

The Rodby RL2700E x 1000 treadmill is our largest for running, bicycling, wheelchair and cross-country roller skis. Belt length is 270 cm and the width 100 cm. The treadmill belt can be fitted with vulcanized rubber strips of 3 or 8 mm thickness for better pole action. The treadmill is usually equipped with Emergency Stop Framework and a Safety belt. This is many renowned Swedish and Norwegian elite skier’s choice. The treadmill is equipped with Pulse Control. All new Rodby treadmills are delivered with Control System 2.0 including a computer, a touch screen, keyboard and mouse.

Pulse Control is standard

All Rodby treadmills delivered with Control System 2.0 features Pulse Control as standard. Pulse control requires a connected Polar pulse band (version 7 or 10) and allows you to set a target pulse (Target Pulse). The control system adjusts the speed of the belt to reach the user’s desired pulse. This is a very useful feature when you want to be sure to stay within the desired pulse range for endurance training, fat burning, aerobic exercise, anaerobic exercise or interval training.

Track Simulation GPX is standard

Rodby treadmills with Control System 2.0 features an import function of a GPX file created by a GPS device so that you can exercise on the simulated track. This provides an excellent way to prepare for a race and exercise with almost the same conditions as the real track. Use Track Simulation GPX for your favorite home track in the forest or an competition track such as a marathon or the Vasaloppet.

Auto Positioning as Option

Treadmill with Control system 2.0 can be equipped with Auto Positioning. Auto positioning allows the treadmill through sensors to determine the user’s position and automatically increases the belt speed of the treadmill when the user approaches the front of the treadmill and decrease the belt speed when the user falls back on the belt. In this way, the user can control the speed of the belt through his own position during exercise.

Roller skiing on Rodby treadmills

Rodby recommends fitting the belt with vulcanized rubber strips primarily because the Karda pole tips will last longer. Though the belt is very wear resistant the belt will also last longer with these self-healing rubber strips. Please note that according to some riders, the rubber strips can to some minor degree adversely effect the grip capabilities of the “Karda” tips. The most extremely powerful double-poling riders should opt for the 8 mm strips and tips mention below.

The vulcanized red rubber strips are available in two thicknesses: 3 mm and 8 mm.

Rubber strips 3 mm

  • With the 3 mm thick rubber strips we strongly advocate using only tips modell “Karda” or walking ski pole rubber tips with studs having a maximum protrusion of 2 mm.
  • With the 3 mm thick rubber strips the treadmill is more suited for a usage situation where roller skiing is combined with running or other types of exercise.

Rubber strips 8 mm

  • With the 8 mm thick rubber strips you can use the same tips as for the 3 mm strips.
  • The belt will last longer with 8 mm strips.
  • The belt with 8 mm thick rubber strips allows you to use the tips Swix Force or Swix Triac tips with the sharp tip slightly grounded off leaving a protrusion of maximum 3 mm. This combination of 8 mm strips and the before mentioned tips give good pole tip grip and minimal tip and belt wear.
