  • X-Lite II Treadmill Review: Compact, Foldable and a Top Speed of 10 km/h

Smaller than most treadmills, the X-Lite II is the right choice for apartments, flats or smaller homes.

Designed to be compact, the X-Lite II also provides solid functionality with 12 preset programs and powerful 1.5 HP motor offering three manual incline levels.

Let’s see why this model is often sold out.

Key Features of the X-Lite II Treadmill

  • Compact "Space Saving" Folding design
  • Reasonable 10 km/hr top speed
  •  100 x 400 mm running deck
  • 12-preset training programs and 1 manual program option
  • 3 manual incline levels (0 - 7%)
  • Maximum User weight 120 kg
  • Lifetime motor warranty (1 year on frame & parts)

Functions and Performance

When you buy a treadmill, it’s not about the look of the machine or the size – it’s all about the settings. These settings allow you to increase your stamina, build muscle and ultimately reach your goals.

You’ll find that this super compact model has just about everything you can want in a non-commercial treadmill.

Once jumping on, you’ll be able to choose between three quick-start options if you want a quick cardio session, or you can choose between the 12-preset interval training programs.

There is also a manual setting if you want to control the speed and incline while running.

A maximum speed of 10km/h is more than enough for most people. This is a challenging top speed, so don’t be turned away from this model if you see high-end (and far more expensive) treadmills offering 16km/h.

Most people won’t get up to 10km/h for long, and very few can run at 16km/h for even a short distance.

X-Lite II Treadmill LCD

The display is easy to read, and settings are straightforward to adjust. There is a safety clip to ensure that if you fall, the belt shuts off. On the right and left of the display, you’ll find drink holders to hold your water.

If you want to monitor your heart rate, you’ll love the accurate heart rate sensors in the handrails. The LCD allows you to view your current heart rate as well as your speed and distance.

Noise Level

As with all treadmills, the motor and running belt generate some noise.

It certainly isn't loud, and is nothing to be concerned about overall.

That said, the engine noise does increase the faster you go. Also depending on your weight and running style the sound of your feet hitting the running deck will add some noise.

It will certainly be noticeable in the room you're using it, and you may hear it in adjoining rooms - but shouldn't be annoying for others.

Dimensions and Assembly

Meant for the home user, you’ll be able to fold your treadmill up and pack it away neatly in the corner of your room. If you live in a flat or apartment, this is a great way to get in your daily workout without having to sacrifice vital living space.

X-Lite II treadmill Folded Up

The Fit4Home X-Lite II Treadmill has the following weight and dimensions: 

  • Assembled Dimensions (L x W x H): 1350 x 650 x 1400mm
  • Folded Dimensions (L x W x H): 450 x 650 x 1400mm
  • Boxed Dimensions (L x W x H): 1430 x 280 x 710mm
  • Running Deck Area (L x W): 1100 x 400mm
  • Boxed Weight: 33 Kg

Weighing just 28kg when assembled, and is easy to transport thanks to the small lower wheels.

You can easily store this is a cupboard as it is quite narrow with the deck folded up, with only the handlebars adding depth at the top.

Maximum User Weight

The maximum user weight is 120 kg (19 stone). This limit is impressive given the compact design. Most treadmills this size can only support up to 100kg.

If you are a bit heavier than 120 kg you might still consider this model if you only plan on walking for most of your workouts, as these limits are designed based on someone that weight running at top speed on the treadmill.

Conclusion

For larger users, the belt width may be a little narrow.

Sturdy and reliable, the 10km/h speed is good and the 12-preprogrammed training options range from extremely fit to the first-time user.

When you’re done using it this model folds up very small, barely taking up any space.

I would recommend this to anyone wanting a reasonably priced treadmill with solid features and easy 'store-ability'.
