It’s a tough call to choose a winner from here among the top 3 treadmills. There are actually no wrong responses because all three are amazing treadmills with extremely similar statistics.
Finally, I have chosen Sole F63 as my number 2, since it has several more training programmes, and uses somewhat bigger rollers than the Horizon 7.0 AT (and the XTERRA model above is a bit heavier-duty).
The Sole F63 is on the “best of” lists of most bloggers. And why- it’s good-built and comes with good specs for such an inexpensive gadget isn’t really surprising.
Right outside the bat, it comes with 20′′ x 60′′ running surface – the highest seed on this list must be snatched. The framework also folds for convenient storage and the deck is designed to decrease stress through your joints with Sole’s CushionFlex shock-absorption system.

Overall, the Sole F63 is a robust, user-friendly, durable machine. If you don’t have to have a ton of pre-programmed workouts, this workout is a wonderful choice.

One treadmill produced in 2023 is the Kicode Under Desk Electric Treadmill . It’s a fold-flat treadmill that like the OVICX X3 in several ways.
It doesn’t have any pre-programmed workouts or online connectivity, but it has built-in Bluetooth speakers.
Its handlebar assembly with the console is also angle-adjustable to accommodate users of various sizes.
Construction of the framework
The frame of the Kicode Under Desk Electric Treadmill is largely built of steel tubing, with a few sections made of aluminum.
The primary tubes in its construction have a rust-resistant and chip-resistant paint finish on both sides.
The color chosen is black, which is currently the only color available for this model.
The fully configured machine is quite huge. It measures 62′′ (157 cm) in length and 31′′ (79 cm) in width.
However, for safe use and access, at least two feet of clearance on each side of the deck and at least three feet of clearance at the back of the deck is advised.
The machine’s height reaches approximately 48′′ (122 cm) above floor level when the upright bars are put to their highest position.
The Kicode Under Desk Electric Treadmill is a treadmill that folds flat. The upright bar assembly, which includes the console and side grips, folds completely over the deck.
Its height, when folded flat, is approximately 8′′. (20.3 cm). When folded, it can also keep the machine upright against a wall.
The upright bar assembly, which includes the console and side grips, is angle-adjustable, as noted previously.
Hydraulic cylinders in the upright bars allow you to change the height of the console and side grips.
As a result, people of various heights can use this computer while we adjust the console display to their height.
Last but not least, the Kicode Under Desk Electric Treadmill is a substantial piece of equipment.
The packaged unit weights around 114.5 lbs (52 kg), therefore transporting it will need two people.
Once unpacked and ready to use, however, it may simply be moved by one person. It has two transport wheels on its front base.
Constructing a deck
To begin with, the Kicode Under Desk Electric Treadmill lacks an inclination system.
As a result, we can only use it with the deck lying flat on the floor. I made the deck of a durable material.
It has a maximum user weight limit of 265 lbs (120 kg), which isn’t terrible for a treadmill for home use.
The machine has a 49.2′′ (125 cm) long and 18.1′′ (46 cm) wide running platform. As a result, it should be able to accommodate comfortably users up to 6’2′′ (188 cm).
Taller people should be able to use this treadmill, although they may not get the entire range of motion when running at maximum speed.
The Kicode Under Desk Electric Treadmill has a 7-layer tread belt that disperses and absorbs shock, with a top layer composed of high-density rubber that has a textured surface for better grip.
The deck has 14 cushioning pieces that are hidden below the side rail coverings.
These significantly lessen the impact of running and walking, resulting in a safer workout, particularly for your joints and lower back.
The interior rollers have a crowned shape to help the belt last longer and provide better traction.
They have sealed bearings that allow the belt to slide.
The belt is barely about 5 inches (13 cm) above the ground. As a result, you shouldn’t have to be concerned about ceiling height difficulties.
Everything should be fine as long as the ceiling is at least 10′′ (25 cm) higher than the tallest user.
Motor for driving
The Kicode Under Desk Electric Treadmill has a 2.0 HP motor, which is comparable to the LifePro Electrostride treadmill’s motor.
It isn’t a powerful treadmill motor, but it allows you to run for an extended period without overheating.
I also included a small flywheel for better motion stability.
The Kicode Under Desk Electric Treadmill has a speed range of 0.6 to 9.0 miles per hour. I adjusted the speed in 0.1 MPH increments.
The console includes controls for both gradual and fast speed adjustments. 2 MPH, 4 MPH, 6 MPH, and 8 MPH are the rapid speed selection keys.
It’s worth noting, though, that changing the belt’s speed via one of the quick change settings will cause the speed to gradually rise or decrease, allowing you to easily alter your pace.
The treadmill’s motor isn’t particularly strong, with a maximum output of only 2.0 HP, therefore its power consumption is low.
Even if you use it regularly, it shouldn’t add more than a few dollars to your electricity bill.
Also, while the motor itself does not make a lot of noise when in use, your cadence may make more or less noise depending on how quickly you run.
The console for the Kicode Under Desk Electric Treadmill is rather basic. It has no pre-programmed options or access to the internet.
It doesn’t work with any fitness apps, either. It has a 5-window LED display that shows speed, time, steps, distance, and calories burned in order from left to right.
MPH and miles are used to display speed and distance.
It is not possible to adjust them to km/h or kilometers.
The unit is also non-telemetric and lacks built-in pulse sensors.
As a result, you’ll need to use a separate monitor to keep track of your pulse during your workouts.
They built a device holder and speakers into the console.
The device holder is a very large compartment above the unit’s LED display where you may insert a tablet or smartphone. The speakers are of a good size.
On each side of the tablet holder, I put one. They include Bluetooth connectivity, so you can connect your phone or tablet to the console and listen to music through it for greater sound.
The console has no additional ports for a phone or tablet (no AUX, no USB). There are, however, controls for rewind and loudness.
The Start/Stop buttons, magnetic key for swiftly stopping the belt, quick speed controls, and two bottle slots on each side of the keypad are just a few of the console’s features.
Installation and upkeep
The Kicode Under Desk Electric Treadmill is delivered folded and completely assembled.
So all you have to do now is unpack it, unfold it, and plug it in to get started.
It shouldn’t take you over 15 minutes to do this task. The documentation clearly explains how to set up and use the device.
To maintain the machine, simply keep it clean, especially the belt, to avoid any dirt or textile fibers becoming entangled in the motor.
The belt, like other treadmills, needs to be lubricated regularly.
Aside from that, it is also a good idea to inspect the machine regularly to ensure that everything is in working order and that all the parts are still working properly.
