INDEPTH PRODUCT REVIEW
This folding treadmill uses that company's propriety EZfold technology with a hydraulic shock system to make unfolding and folding simple and convenient. When folded, the machine becomes a compact unit that can be stored in small spaces. When unfolded, the EZfold system ensures that the treadmill is dropped slowly and safely.
Among the features that make this machine both safe and functional, and essentially the best treadmill in the market, are the spacious running surface and the non-slip plastic rails on the sides. Specifically, the running surface has a dimension of 20 inches in width and 56 inches in length, providing ample space to anyone. It is also equipped with a deck suspension system with biomechanically appropriate settings, allowing the machine to carry anyone as heavy as 300 pounds.

Coupled with the 2-inch roller in the rear and the 2.5-inch roller in the front as well as a 2-ply belt type, the treadmill can provide a wide range of speed from 0.5 miles per hour to 11 miles per hour. To make your walk, jog or run more challenging, there are 15 incline levels to choose from.
