The Sole E95 is one of those machines who’s price has increased over the years. When it used to sell of $1699 we would recommend that people step up from the E55 to purchase this baby. No longer. You essentially get the same machine as the E55 with some small features that really don’t justify the $300 you have to spend to get them.

Sole Fitness is a company that sells decent quality treadmills and ellipticals that are built for them by Dyaco International.Â These machines are primarily sold at Dick's Sporting Goods, Sole's website, and on various mass-market websites like Amazon.com.Â Sole has quickly established their brand as a good value alternative and they have very broad distribution. They have blanketed the web with so many people promoting them it is hard to turn around on the web without bumping into them...just remember that the majority of the people promoting them are affiliate sites.
Quality / Philosophy
Sole Fitness is putting good components on their machines which makes perfect sense since they are putting such a long warranty on it. They are trying to sell their machines at a value price with a high end warranty and the result is quite good. We would expect another strong year for Sole.
From a startup just a few years ago to putting treadmills for rent in hotels all over the USA, Sole Fitness has quickly established itself as a mass-market player in the USA. The line is in need of a redesign just to bring the product up to today's standards but as happens with companies that achieve a good measure of success, it is easy to rest upon your laurels.
