Sole E95 Elliptical Review
Sole ellipticals are known for supporting fluid, natural motion. Since the E95 has one of the heaviest elliptical flywheels available, the ride is smoother than Snoop Dogg’s voice. This machine operates almost silently thanks to magnetic resistance and top-notch construction. The automated incline offers additional resistance and can diversify workouts with 20 elliptical paths. Using the incline is an excellent way to target muscles in the legs and, of course, the glutes. For upper body training, the Sole E95 Elliptical has movable arm bars with molded hand grips. Controls for the machine’s resistance and incline are conveniently built into the handles. Stationary handlebars with pulse sensors are provided too, and for wireless heart monitoring the E95 is shipped with a chest strap.
Foot pedals on this trainer are oversized (a full 15”) to allow trainees to reposition themselves for comfort during workouts. Unlike the pedals on some elliptical trainers, they are even cushioned. They even have a slight inward slope to reduce the likelihood of ankle and knee stain common with some other front drive elliptical machines. Additionally, the user can adjust the pedal angle with a dial for added customization and comfort.
This model’s warranty package includes lifetime coverage for the frame, five years for parts and electronics, and two years of in-home labor. Considering all of the above it’s easy to see why the Sole E95 is one of our top recommendations for at-home elliptical training and easily justifies its high price point. This machine is one of the elite ellipticals on the market.
