When I first saw the Sole E35 Elliptical, the first thing that popped into my mind was how cool this thing looks. Even the LCD looks like a command prompt from a star wars or trek movie. The Sole E35 was also rated as a “best buy” by leading consumer magazine for its value and quality. It was also rated again a “bestbuy” by many consumer leading websites.
The Sole E35 bridges the gap between home and commercial use elliptical machines, for a fraction of the cost of the commercial units. The fixed handle bars include built in heart rate monitoring using pulse sensors. The moving handle bars are completely adjustable for optimal comfort. There is also a chest strap included for hands free pulse monitoring or when using its interactive heart rate optimizing programs. It features a very smooth and natural motion provided by its whisper quiet drive system. The Sole E35 functions in both forward and reverse movement motion. It contains a solid 29lb flywheel with a high gear ratio that is not found in comparable elliptical models. This means it has a hefty amount of resistance on the high end. As well as a very smooth feel throughout, for a challenging and enjoyable workout.
The angle of the ramp is fully adjustable from a 0 to 30 degree margin, this allows specific targeting to work all major lower body muscle groups. This elliptical includes heavy duty rails that have four rear wheels, providing reduced side to side foot pedal motion. In turn, also providing a smoother and much more stable feel. This feature is usually found only on much more expensive elliptical models.
The sole e35 elliptical also gives you a comfortable workout through its oversized foot pedals. Designed with leading physical therapist and sports enthusiast. Foot bedding is adjustable and pedals have a 2 degree inward slope for the reduction of knee and ankle strain, a common problem for other ellipticals.
The previously discussed interface includes a lit blue LCD. Fully integrated speakers which include input for mp3 players. The Sole E35 Elliptical also has a built in water bottle holder and cooling fans, that allow you to cool down during a hard workout.
( Based On Over 40 Customer Reviews )
The Sole Fitness E35 Elliptical received a whopping 4.5/5 overall rating based on over 40 customer reviews. A lot of customers noted how the E35 was the closest thing they could find for home use, that mimicked the very expensive, commercial gym ellipticals. Customers even at 6’4 and 250lbs were happy with how stable and solid the elliptical machine was. A problem some customers have noticed is the developing of a squeak like noise. However, this has been fixed with adding some lubricant to the source. A ton of customers have raved about how quiet the Sole E35 was, one even went as far as saying, besides the noise from the control panel. One could sleep in the same room as the person using this elliptical.
Overall the Sole Fitness E35 being a “bestbuy” from industry leading websites and magazine alike, being super sturdy, super quiet, and bridging the gap between home and commercial use elliptical machines. Adding to that, its overall cool look, we definitely recommend you take a good look at this one.
