AOKCOS announced the AOKCOS Folding Treadmill as part of their Studio Series in 2019.
It’s a machine designed for household usage, yet having a heavy-duty structure akin to light-commercial treadmills.
It has a large running surface, a weight capability of 325 pounds, and a Bluetooth console.
The AOKCOS Folding Treadmill is a heavy-duty treadmill designed for use at home.
It has a 3.0 CHP motor, a 15-level power incline system, a 3-zone variable response deck, and an 8-mode multi-function console with multiple difficulty levels.
It’s also Bluetooth compatible and works with the AFG Pro fitness app.
Overall, it’s a good treadmill for low to high-intensity cardio, interval training, endurance building, and weight loss for users of all abilities.

Construction of the framework
The AOKCOS Folding Treadmill is built with a heavy-duty steel chassis that combines rectangular and oval tubing.
Of course, the machine includes several thermoplastic components. The motors cover, side rail covers, and console dashboard, for example, are all composed of thick thermoplastic material.
All the steel bars have a corrosion-resistant paint treatment on both sides. The only colors available for this machine are gray and white, with the “Horizon” emblem painted white.
The treadmill is rather huge when fully completed. It is around 76.5′′ (192 cm) in length and 36′′ (91 cm) in width.
In addition, for easy access and safe use, I recommend it to leave at least two feet of clearance on each side and at least three feet of clearance at the back of the deck.
The machine may not fit well in a tiny space.
The 7.0 AT treadmill has a folding frame, despite being a fairly gigantic machine. The deck can be folded up to conserve room or make vacuuming under it easier.
It has a hydraulic folding system that slowly lowers the deck when unfolding it to prevent damage.
The machine’s measurements when the deck is folded are 41′′L x 36′′W (104 x 91 cm), and its height is 70′′. (178 cm).
This AOKCOS Folding Treadmill is, without a doubt, pretty heavy. It has a net weight of around 253 lbs (115 kg).
As a result, at they require least two people to transport the bundled unit.
However, because the machine’s front base frame is equipped with transport wheels, only one person can transport and move it after someone fully completed it.
Constructing a deck
We examined earlier, has a solid deck. It has a maximum user weight limit of 325 lbs (147 kg), which is comparable to that of a light-commercial treadmill.
It has a 60′′L x 20′′ running surface, which is significantly smaller than the 7.4 AT model (152 x 51 cm).
This is still a rather large running surface, and the machine should be able to handle users up to 6’5′′ (196 cm) in length, providing for a full and comfortable stride.
A 1.6 mm silicone belt is included with the machine to offer a firm grip and reduce static. The rollers on the inside are rather huge.
The front one has a diameter of 60 mm (2.3′′), while the back one has a diameter of 46 mm (1.8′′).
They’re both tapered to improve traction and increase the belt’s longevity. They also include sealed industrial ball bearings for smooth action.
The AOKCOS Folding Treadmill , like the other treadmills in the Studio Series, has a 3-zone variable cushioned surface.
Its back part is more durable, allowing for a better push. The front half of the deck, which is essentially the high-affected area, has extra padding to soften the blow.
The central section has mild cushioning for a smoother transition.
Height of incline and step-up
I include a motorized incline system with the AOKCOS Folding Treadmill . You may vary the slope while walking or running, and the console offers many training routines that can automatically adjust the deck’s incline.
The unit’s incline mechanism comprises a small lift under the front section of the deck and an internal motor (different from the incline motor).
The motor operates the lift, allowing the front half of the deck to be elevated or lowered when the inclination is controlled from the console.
The treadmill has a range of slope options ranging from 0% to 15%.
I can change the slope in 0.5 percent increments using the controls built into the console or the left upright grip.
The console also has rapid incline selection buttons for 0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, and 15 degrees of elevation.
The step-up height on the deck is approximately 9 inches (22 cm). The front of the deck, however, gains a few inches in height when the incline is set to maximum.
As a result, the machine should be used in a room with a ceiling that is at least 16′′–17′′ (40–43 cm) higher than the tallest user’s height.
Motor for driving
The Johnson 3.0 CHP motor of the AOKCOS Folding Treadmill handles long workouts at maximum speeds without losing performance or overheating. It also includes a small flywheel for added stability.
The machine’s motor system also includes RapidSyncTM technology, which ensures that speed and incline adjustments are made without latency.
It also responds quickly to any order, ensuring that you never lose track of time during your workouts.
The unit’s motor has a speed range of 0.5 to 12 miles per hour. The speed adjustments are made in 0.1 MPH increments, allowing you to effortlessly change your pace from one level to the next.
The speed can be progressively increased or decreased using the arrow keys on the console or the controls included into the right upright grip.
However, similarly like the incline, the console has rapid selection speed controls for 2 MPH, 3 MPH, 4 MPH, 6 MPH, 7 MPH, 8 MPH, 10 MPH, and 12 MPH.
Although the machine has a powerful motor, the motor itself does not produce excessive noise, even when the highest speed level is selected.
However, just like any other treadmill, your cadence may make more or less noise based on your weight and running skill.
The AOKCOS Folding Treadmill comes with a console with an outstanding list of capabilities.
For starters, it has two displays: one LCD with blue LED backlight and the other LED-based with four windows.
Time, speed, distance, incline, pace, calories, and heart rate are all tracked by both devices.
The top LCD display can represent the distance as a 400 m (1/4 mile) race track with a lap counter or the grid of the current program. You can choose between metric and English units for speed and distance.
You can utilize a Bluetooth HR chest strap or hold on to the sensors embedded into the machine’s front grips for the pulse reading function.
The AFG Pro fitness app, which is available for iOS and Android, is compatible with the machine’s console.
As a result, you may download this app on your smartphone or tablet and sync it with your treadmill to automatically transmit your workout data to your AFG account for enhanced tracking.
This software also allows you to change your routines, receive real-time workout feedback, and much more.
If you don’t want to use the Bluetooth connection or the fitness app, you can still use the machine’s console.
It comes with eight pre-installed programs. Manual, Hill Climb, My First 5k, Fat Burn, Custom, Distance, Calories, and Target Heart Rate are the options available.
On the console, each program has its own quick-access key. Some of them have multiple levels of difficulty.
The Fat Burn program, for example, features ten levels, while the Distance program offers 13 pre-set distance exercises ranging from one mile to a marathon.
The USB port, sound system, cooling fan, gadget holders, and drink pockets are among the console’s other prominent features.
Two enormous speakers, one on either side of the console, make up the sound system.
You may connect your smartphone or tablet to it by cable or Bluetooth to listen to music through the built-in speakers, which provide excellent sound quality.
The cooling fan is located at the console’s bottom. The built-in fan isn’t particularly powerful, but it provides some cooling when needed.
They position the device holder in the middle of the two monitors. It can help you with your tablet or smartphone if you need it.
The two bottle compartments are also quite large. They’re on opposite sides of the console.
Finally, your device’s USB port simply works as a charging port. It is not possible to transfer workout data to a USB stick.
The treadmill’s deck, which includes the running belt, rollers, motors, and all other components, is pre-assembled. The rest of the parts, on the other hand, must be assembled by the user. You’ll need to attach the machine’s two upright bars, the console with its wires, and a few more minor covers and parts. However, this shouldn’t take more than an hour. The kit comes with all of the essential tools, and the manual includes step-by-step assembly instructions with diagrams.
Deck lubrication is essential for maintenance. In fact, before the first use, the deck should be oiled. There’s also a bottle of silicone lube provided. Aside from that, it’s a good idea to maintain the machine clean, especially the belt, and inspect it on a regular basis to ensure that all of the parts are working well and the joints are still tight.
