Sole Fitness has always been one of the best fitness manufactures and that is largely credited to sound engineering and their outstanding warranty packages.
The Sole E95 may only be in the $1,500 to $2,000 price range but the incredible warranty resembles something that most manufactures would require you to pay much higher to earn. Sole has confidence in their products and it shows.
The E95 is the strongest operating elliptical Sole produces.
This elliptical is capable of meeting just about every fitness demand and adjustment capability on many parts satisfies users who like diverse workouts.
The Sole E95 features 10 workout programs, 6 standard and 2 you can design yourself.
The best workout program feature on the sole E95 is definitely the two included heart rate programs.
Not only does the E95 track your heart rate on a zone graph easily seen on the console, but resistance is automatically adjusted guaranteeing you stay in your targeted zone.
The included wireless chest strap functions with a 99.9 percent accuracy rating.
Unfortunately, the elliptical is not compatible with iFit Live which may irk some buyers looking to jump on the latest technological craze. But the extremely accurate heart rate programs make up for this limitation.
The Sole E95 is loaded with a plethora of amazing features. The performance of the elliptical is unrivaled for both comfort and quiet performance.
Not only does the 34 lb. flywheel guarantee a smooth performance, fluid natural motion allows you to easily listen to your favorite tunes without annoying background machine noise.
Adjustable oversize cushioned pedals are engineered with a 2 degree inward slope, reducing ankle and knee stress.
Ramp angle up to 40 degrees, foot pedal adjustment and resistance controls as well as pulse sensors built into the handles easily adjust to the pace of your workout. Not all ellipticals have built-in incline so it’s definitely an important addition.
The Sole E95 is music friendly with iPod/mp3 compatibility and built-in speakers. Exercise data including time, distance, calories burned and pace are all displayed nicely on a 9 inch LCD display.
Sole has also installed a cooling fan and water bottle holder to keep you cool and hydrated.
The Sole E95 has not forgotten working upper body muscles and incorporates them into your workout thanks to molded hand grips. Incline, resistance controls and heart rate pulse sensors are conveniently located there as well.
