The Dual Flex Techonolgy works as a shock absorber to absorb the impact and preventing injuries. Perfect for under pronation and heavy weight runners, who are always in need of cushioning.
When your foot steps down on a treadmill’s deck, it creates an impact force on the deck that is more than twice your body weight. This energy is then transmitted back up your leg – unless a shock absorption system is present to dissipate some of that force. A treadmill cushioning system lessens this shock substantially allowing you to work out longer and feel less fatigue in your legs and body.
How Cushioning Works
The three key areas: the front of the deck is the stride impact zone where the spring (Edge fitness dual flex technology) is located for maximum cushioning and absorption. This is where your foot lands. At the back of the treadmill is the firm push-off zone (for your rear foot) where the cushioning is more stable since it made of very top quality rubber material (Edge fitness dual flex rubber technology). The middle area is the transition zone, which has moderate cushioning.
