Customization is a hallmark of the Cybex brand. First, with the R Series Treadmill you have a choice of two consoles: the 70T and 50L. The 70T provides an integrated 16” video display with touchscreen for enhanced exercise guidance. The 50L has a simplified interface and can be paired with a detachable TV. Custom colors are another brand benefit; the Cybex R Series Treadmill can match any club’s colors. Owners can also choose from three software platforms for behind-the-scenes management and to share club-specific content with members.
However you customize Cybex equipment, it’s bound to bring great reviews. Cybex International is a top-tier commercial fitness brand and a favorite in elite health clubs worldwide.
What We Like:
- High Speed, High Power: The Cybex R Series Treadmill is among our review site’s best treadmills for runners. It features a 4.0 horsepower AC motor with peak capacity of 8.0 HP, and the tread belt can turn at up to 14 mph. For comparison most treadmills for runners top out at 12 mph.
- Incline Training: To optimize workouts at any speed, the deck has power incline with a max setting of 15 percent.
- Large Track: This elite cardio trainer provides a roomy workout area. The running space is extra wide at 21”, and it’s five feet long to support a sprinter’s best strides.
- Variable Suspension: The new R Series Treadmill has advanced suspension systems. Instead of giving uniform flex, it provides graduated shock deflection: The workout surface is firm at push-off to support high performance, and it’s softer in the landing zone to help protect joints and ligaments.
- Custom Colors: Cybex fitness machines are available in custom colors. Shoppers can specify any paint color codes for the R Series Treadmill frame.
- Service Wheel: A service wheel (optional) makes the fitness machine easier to move for servicing or club redesign.

- High Price: Compared with some other commercial treadmills, the Cybex R Series Treadmill has a high price tag. It’s designed for elite fitness centers rather than customers focused on lower-budget options.
- Large Footprint: Measuring nearly seven feet long, the R Series Treadmill isn’t a compact cardio trainer. By choosing a different model, a club might fit more machines.
- Warranty: The warranty is acceptable but not outstanding. It provides for seven years of motor and frame coverage and one year for mechanical parts. Labor is free during the first six months of machine ownership.
The Cybex R Series Treadmill is a premium cardio trainer that serves all workout intensities. Especially customizable, it’s a favorite for elite fitness centers worldwide. You could spend less on another commercial treadmill and be assured of durability… but you’d likely miss the “wow factor” that comes with a Cybex! This trainer is especially appealing when paired with the 70T console or the 50L plus detachable TV.
