The anti-corrosive steel frame of the OVICX Q2S Folding Treadmill makes it durable and capable of supporting a maximum user weight capacity of 265 lbs (120 kg). This treadmill doesn’t take up much space for workouts or storage. It is usable out of the box, meaning no assembly is required.
The Q2S is not a typical runner’s treadmill but incorporates a 1.25/3.0 horsepower (peak power) motor at the front base with a vent. Therefore, it has enough drive capacity to provide a sustained speed range of 0.6-8.7 mph without overheating or breaking down, no matter how frequent or consistent it’s in use.
The OVICX Q2S folding treadmill doesn’t have the traditional dashboard of a treadmill. Instead, it’s small and innovative and features a few soft-touch navigation buttons such as +/- Speed Keys, Start/Stop Key, Function key, and Fatigue Slowdown Key (intelligent speed reduction).
It also features an LED monitor that tracks workout data in real-time such as time, speed, distance, calories, and pulse. It is also possible to track and record your workout stats via a smartphone or tablet with the FitShow app that connects to the treadmill via Bluetooth. The app is free and downloadable from Google Play or the Apple store.

Q2S Frame Construction
One of the essential features of the OVICX Q2S folding treadmill is its portability. The machine features a fold-flat design, allowing the two upright bars to fold down over the deck with the sidearm grips. Therefore, it results in very slim packing and superior storage possibilities.
In particular, you can even store it under a bed if there is a clearance of at least 10″ (25 cm). In addition, its front section has two folding foot stabilizers, which offer the possibility of storing the machine vertically.
The treadmill is not too large, with the frame unfolded and set for exercising. However, it does take approx. 65″L x 25″W (165 x 65 cm) of floor space. Plus, leaving at least two feet of clearance on each side of the deck and three feet behind the machine is advisable for safe usage and easy access.
Although the OVICX treadmill has a slim construction, it is not exactly lightweight. Its net weight is approx—94.8 lbs (43 kg). Therefore, two persons should carry the packaged unit. However, once unboxed, one person can quickly relocate the treadmill. Its front base integrates two small wheels that facilitate its relocation.
Considering that most of the machine’s weight is its deck, the treadmill has a low center of gravity when set up for exercising. Thus, it provides excellent stability.
The machine’s frame is steel-made. The deck frame and the two upright bars are rectangular tubings coated with a corrosion-resistant paint finish—however, the console dashboard, the motor cover, and several other durable thermoplastic materials.
Deck and running surface
The OVICX Q2S folding treadmill offers a reasonably decent running surface for a small treadmill. It is approx 49.2″ (125 cm) long and 16.9″ (43 cm) wide. Therefore, it should accommodate users up to 6’0″ (183 cm) for all workouts or even taller users if used only for walking. Also, the deck has a maximum user weight capacity of 264 lbs (120 kg).
The machine’s belt is multi-layered, with its top layer rubberized for an improved grip. The exact diameter of the rollers that set the belt in motion is not specified. But they integrate high-grade ball bearings for a smooth belt motion. In addition, the side covers of the running platform feature a textured surface for improved foot stability.
The treadmill’s deck comes equipped with the Silkworm Shock Absorption Technology. Accordingly, the machine’s base rests on six high-density foam stabilizers, acting as shock absorption elements. Moreover, the machine should provide more comfortable walking, jogging, or running, as it reduces the impact on your knees and ankles.
Unfortunately, the OVICX Q2S treadmill doesn’t have an incline system. Therefore, the running platform is perfectly horizontal for exercising. The deck is also pretty slim, so the step-up height is only approx—4″ (10 cm). Thus, you shouldn’t have to worry about ceiling height issues.
Q2S Drive motor
The OVICX Q2S treadmill is an electric treadmill equipped with a 1.25/3.0 HP (peak power) motor. It offers a speed range between 0.6 MPH and 8.7 MPH and provides a continuous belt motion during prolonged workouts even if the user is close to the maximum capacity of 264 lbs (120 kg).
It comes with a power cord connecting to the machine’s front base section. There is also an On/Off switch next to the connection port of the power cord.
The speed adjustment increments are 0.1 kph. Therefore, the transition from one level to another is smooth without jerks or sudden changes, so you can quickly adapt your pace. Unfortunately, the console doesn’t have quick selection keys for certain speed levels.
Thus, it is a downside as it takes quite a bit to increase the speed to the highest settings. But the speed adjustment buttons have a double function. A short press increases the speed by 0.1 kph, while if you press and hold the controller, the speed will increase faster.
Regarding speed adjustment, the treadmill also has a function that allows a quick switch between walking speed and the previous speed setting, which is quite helpful during interval workouts.
The motor itself is reasonably quiet. Therefore, it doesn’t generate much noise when used, but your cadence may create some noise during running depending on your weight, running technique, floor material, and other factors.
The OVICX Q2S folding treadmill comes equipped with a reasonably simple console. It features an LED display with three windows that indicate (from left to right) speed, time, and calories/distance/pulse.
The speed and distance are in kph and kilometers only. You cannot change the readings to MPH. Thus, the maximum speed is 14 kph (equivalent to approximately 8.7 MPH).
The console has metallic HR pulse sensors integrated on each side of the display for pulse reading. You can hold on to them if you want the console to read your pulse. Unfortunately, the console cannot read your pulse from a wireless HR transmitter or Bluetooth device. So, holding on to the incorporated sensors is the only way to monitor your pulse.
Although the console doesn’t have workout programs, it does have built-in Bluetooth. Therefore, you can sync it with your smartphone or tablet via the FitShow App, which keeps track of your workout history and offers features like workout goals and programs. If you sync your device with the treadmill, you can also control the speed from your device.
Unfortunately, the console doesn’t have features like incorporated speakers or a workout fan. However, a device holder comes with the machine. It connects to the top part of the console and supports your phone or tablet.
Q2S Assembly and Maintenance
The OVICX Q2S treadmill comes pre-assembled. So you only have to unbox it, unfold it, secure the upright bars and the armrests in usable position, plug it in, turn it on, and connect the safety key to start. Consequently, it shouldn’t take more than 10 minutes of your time.
For maintenance, the deck requires periodic lubrication. However, it comes pre-lubricated from the factory and shouldn’t require lubrication before the first use.
The manual provides instructions on lubricating the belt. A bottle of lubricant also comes included with the machine. Besides this, you only have to keep the machine clean, especially the belt, to prevent debris from being caught in the motor.
