Kaideser 2 in 1 Portable Folding Treadmill [2021 Updated ]
In terms of features, the Kaideser 2 in 1 Portable Folding Treadmill is very similar to the OVICX X3 model. It does, however, come with a 4.0 HP motor and a few extra features, such as pulse sensors and controls built into the side grips. Although the console has a similar display, the control pad is unique and works with a different fitness software.

Construction of the framework
The steel frame of the Kaideser 2 in 1 Portable Folding Treadmill is coated with a corrosion-resistant paint finish. However, the machine also includes a number of plastic components. The motor cover, side rail covers, and the majority of the console casing, for example, are composed of a robust thermoplastic material.
The treadmill isn’t particularly large, and it can also be folded. The two upright bars with the console and the side grips fold all the way down over the deck in a fold-flat style. The machine is just about 9′′ (22.8 cm) above the floor when folded flat, so it can be stowed beneath a bed if there is enough space. It can also be stacked against a wall vertically.
The machine is approximately 64′′ (163 cm) long and 33′′ (84 cm) wide when fully set up, and its highest point, with the console screen in its upright position, is around 46.5′′ (163 cm) (118 cm). Despite the fact that the machine does not take up a lot of room, it is recommended that you provide at least two feet of clearance on each side of its running platform and at least three feet at the back for safe operation.
The treadmill is also quite hefty. It has a net weight of 132 pounds (60 kg). As a result, the bundled machine should be transported by two people. However, it can only be moved by one person after it is unboxed and ready to use. This is due to the fact that it has a set of transport wheels on its front base.
Constructing a deck
The Kaideser 2 in 1 Portable Folding Treadmill does not feature an inclination mechanism, which is one of the first things to remark. It has a horizontal running platform that cannot be tilted. It has a 50′′L x 20′′W (127 x 51 cm) running/walking surface, which isn’t terrible for a home machine. It can also support a maximum user weight of 265 pounds (120 kg).
Several cushioning components are integrated into the machine’s deck. On each side, some of them are visible. These help to minimize the impact of each foot contact by a significant amount. As a result, compared to running on concrete or asphalt, a run on this treadmill will cause less workout-related joint pain.
The multi-layer construction of the integrated thread belt is impressive. It’s made up of seven layers of various materials. It has a rubberized and textured top layer for better grip. There is also a thicker inner layer of PVC foam that contributes to the running platform’s overall shock absorption.
The internal rollers’ diameter isn’t mentioned. The front roller, as with most treadmills, is slightly thicker than the back roller. They’re both crowned to improve traction and prevent belt wear and tear. For a smooth action, they also include industrial-grade ball bearings.
Motor and speed range of the drive
The engine of this Kaideser 2 in 1 Portable Folding Treadmill is rated at 4.0 HP. Although it isn’t as powerful as the NordicTrack 2450’s 4.0 CHP motor, it is still a capable motor for a home machine. It has a compact flywheel for better stability and vibration reduction. Even if you use the machine at full settings for extended exercises, it provides a decent long-term performance without overheating.
The machine, of course, comes with a power chord and requires a 110V power supply. The cable has a standard plug for use in the United States. It connects to the deck’s front section. Near the cable port, there is also an On/Off switch.
The motor has a speed range of 0.6 to 9.3 miles per hour. It’s worth noting that the console displays speed and distance in km/h and kilometers, with no option to change them to meters. So, the speed range is 1 to 15 kilometers per hour. The speed adjustments are made in 0.1 kmh increments. As a result, the speed steadily increases, allowing you to easily control your pace.
The console includes controls for both gradual and rapid speed adjustments. The machine’s right handgrip also has controls for gradually changing the speed. 2 kmh, 4 kmh, 6 kmh, 8 kmh, 10 kmh, and 12 kmh are the quick speed adjustment controls. That’s 1.2 mph, 2.5 mph, 3.7 mph, 5 mph, 6.2 mph, and 7.4 mph, respectively.
The motor does not make a lot of noise. As a general rule, you should be able to hear your TV at a moderate volume level when running at full pace. Your cadence, however, may make more or less noise based on your weight, running gear, running methods, and other things.
A LED display console is included with the Kaideser 2 in 1 Portable Folding Treadmill. There are five windows on the device that display distance, steps, speed, time, calories, and pulse. As previously stated, the speed and distance figures are displayed in metric units, with no ability to change them to English equivalents. The pulse reading feature is solely based on grip contact. To put it another way, the console can only track your pulse if you keep your hands on the sensors built into the side grips.
Bluetooth is included into the console. It works with the YPOO app, which is accessible on Google Play and the Apple App Store. The treadmill comes with a QR scannable code sticker that makes it simple to download the software.
The software allows you to track your progress and training history online, as well as provide supplementary readings, personalized coaching, and entertaining games for runners. The built-in speakers are also compatible with Bluetooth. For enhanced sound quality, you can link your tablet or phone with the machine’s console and play your music through these speakers. On the console dashboard, there are also volume controls for +/- and mute.
The console features its own set of workout programs if you don’t want to use the machine’s fitness app. Depending on its layout, each application will automatically alter the speed. Some of the routines are designed with intervals in mind, while others are designed to help you gain stamina or lose weight.
Installation and upkeep
The Kaideser 2 in 1 Portable Folding Treadmill is delivered completely constructed. It merely has to be unboxed, unfolded, and plugged in. It is described in detail in the manual. There are also tools for adjusting the belt provided.
The belt should be kept clean for maintenance to avoid dirt or textile fibers becoming entangled in the motor or rollers. The treadmill belt needs to be lubricated on a regular basis, and a container of treadmill lubricant is included. Aside from that, at the end of the workout, it’s a good idea to wipe away any sweat that may have accumulated on the frame and console. You should also check if all of the parts are still in place and working properly on a regular basis.
