Tunturi collection restyling complete – presentation of the international collection at ISPO 2009 in Munich
Almere, 1 February 2009
Over the past few years, the entire Tunturi collection has been given a complete makeover, so that all aspects of the latest techniques, user-friendly monitors, down to the finest of details have been fully scrutinized. Ergonomics meet design. Functionality at the service of the user.
The new international collection is traditionally presented to retail partners, dealers and the many globally operating distributors during ISPO in Munich. The important brand value “Scandinavian design” continues to be a characteristic of the new international collection. Tunturi, originally a Finnish company, is synonymous with the elegant combination of natural colours, smooth lines and many uniquely – especially for Tunturi – designed parts.
Making news at ISPO 2009 are:
1) presentation of no less than three trainers under the “Compact Design”
2) two completely updated Tunturi recumbents
3) the renewed Tunturi treadmills collection
Tunturi monitors: user-friendly and optimal functionality
|Tunturi has distinguished itself for many years with its recognisable Scandinavian design and user-friendly monitors. Monitors that are operated easily with only a few buttons and a selection wheel. This monitor and console functionality applies to the entire Tunturi product range. Consumers who purchase several Tunturi products will have no difficulty using the monitors on the different trainers as the functionality is essentially the same!|
New trend: Compact Design
Compact trainers are extremely popular among consumers. Extensive market research has indicated a growing demand for compact trainers. Consumers often do not have a separate area, or simply insufficient space for fitness equipment at home. The trainer must be portable and take up as little space as possible. With the introduction of the “Compact Design” models, Tunturi has consciously chosen to simplify the monitors to fully optimise user-friendliness. Research also showed that – similar to mobile phones – only a small number of the many fitness and training programmes are actually used. The Tunturi monitors on the R25, F20 and F30 are solely equipped with programmes that are actually used by novice fitness enthusiasts.
New to the range: Tunturi F30
|The successful introduction of the F20 has led to the introduction of a second model: the F30. In addition to compact design and its no-nonsense monitor, this model distinguishes itself through its horizontal saddle adjustment. Optimal ergonomics at the service of the user.|

New range of Tunturi recumbents
The new 2009/2010 Tunturi range consists of two recumbents; the E60R and the F30R. These recumbents are both equipped with a new monitor, the new back support made from comfortable, breathing mesh material and aluminium rails. The ergonomics of a recumbent are particularly vital as it must offer a perfect combination of 100% effectiveness and optimal training comfort.

Successful introduction of the T30 and T40 is followed by the new T50, T70 and T80!
The T30 and T40 treadmills introduced at ISPO 2008 were very well received by the market. The innovative console, with only a few buttons and a selection wheel, was judged “innovative and functional” by the market and consumers. The new treadmill consoles are just as easy to operate as the Tunturi monitors found on the exercise bikes and cross trainers.
Delightful design in beautiful Midnight Blue, with smooth lines that are so characteristic of Tunturi. The Tunturi top-of-the-range models are the showpiece of the Tunturi design team. Attention is paid to the finest of details, without losing sight of functionality. Unique to these top-of-the-range models is the new soft-drop system, so that the running mat gently kisses the floor, as it were, when folded open. Given the size of the trainer, this is unique for the Tunturi T70 and T80. The ergonomically formed hand grips allow users the freedom to make the most of the broad running mat. Another significant feature… due to the unique manner in which the running mat is lubricated, the new top-of-the-range models are particularly easy to maintain.
