It has a regular old quick release.

The bike is way too low end to have a thru axle.

You can see from pictures of the bike that it has dropouts in the fork and rear triangle, so the wheels are inserted in vertically. A thru axle does not have dropouts -- the axle has to go through the fork/frame. The wheel cannot be pulled vertically out from the frame.

  • Is there a way to convert it to a thru axle?

    No. The bike has to be designed for it.
