Difference #2 Incline

This is probably one of the biggest differences between them. The Nordictrack 1750 gives you a healthy 15% incline.

But the Nordictrack X9 gives you much more – up to 40% incline.

Walking on a high incline like this can help you burn up to 5 times more calories than a standard treadmill. So if you’re looking to lose weight fast, the X9 is probably the better option.





Difference #3 Decline

The Nordictrack 1750 helps you add in more crosstraining with a 3% decline. However the X9i trainer gives you a deeper decline of 6%.


Difference #4 Motor Power

The Nordictrack 1750 motor is slightly stronger than the X9i trainer: 3.6 HP vs 3.0 HP. However they are both pretty solid, well-constructed motors covered by lifetime warranties.

The X9i does not have this tray or an extra fan. But there is a dual fan built into the console.



Difference #6 Folding

The Nordictrack 1750 treadmill folds up to save space. The Nordictrack X9i does not fold.
