Unlike conventional trainers that rely only on the center pivot to steer the belt, the PT Max employs the unique "pivot and tilt" action that provides a greater training influence on the belt.
The PT Max reacts and compensates instantly to belt misalignment, and helps keep material on the belt where it belongs.
Unlike conventional trainers that only pivot, PT trainers also tilt to bring belts back in line faster. Here’s how. Sensor rollers allow for a predetermined degree of belt wander.
Once the belt moves beyond these limits, twin sensor rollers engage the belt edge, causing the top frame to begin a pivoting action. This pivoting action immediately triggers a corresponding tilting action that increases tension in the belt on the side that is tracking off, and reduces the tension on the opposite side. This uneven tension causes the belt to move back to center.
The dual rollers safe guard belt edges. Twin sensor rollers on each arm increase the surface contact area when engaged on the belt’s edge. This greatly reduces severe edge pressure and minimizes belt-edge damage.
Top-side and return-side models are available.
