Good points

  • Comes with 30% incline
  • Access to 23 workout programs and it’s iFit compatible so there’s a lot of variety to your workout
  • The belt is not too big for the motor so you can expect there to not be a lot of problems with quality
  • Spacesaver design meaning it’s foldable
  • A very distinct look for a trainer/treadmill works upper body via digitally adjustable cardio cables
  • Not one but two fans
  • One of the heaviest machines from Icon weighing in at 380 lbs

Bad points

  • Goes up to 10mph but you probably won’t want to since the 52″ is on the short side
  • Although the belt and motor is a good fit together, it would be even better if they had a longer belt with a bigger motor for a machine at this price
  • Lifetime motor warranty is coupled with a mere 1 year warranty on parts and labor

Comments

  • Despite the name, the X5 is actually inferior to the X3 incline trainer in a lot of ways. One is the price, the other is the incline.
