<strong>Sole E25 Elliptical Review</strong> The E25 is always one of the best ellipticals you can buy year in and year out at $999. Our 1st Runner Up Award Winner for 2014. <strong><em>The bragging points</em></strong> <strong>Adjustable Stride</strong> This machine sports an adjustable stride with maximum length of 20"-25". This is an ideal feature for taller users. You won't have a cramped up feeling since it offers this feature. On top of this, the adjustable feature enables you focus on different muscle groups as you alter the stride. <strong>Top reliability</strong> What we like most about the E25 is the reliability it offers for the price point. Sole Fitness has lived up to a high standard in their production of quality machines, which the E25 gracefully displays. At a $999 price, you can't find any machine more durable and much more reliable than this one. This machine's reliability has always been regarded to be comparable to those in the $1000-$2000 category. To put it simply, this machine has the most solid build out of them all (products under the $999 tag). <strong><em>The shortcomings</em></strong> <strong>Has had some roller issues</strong> On machines sold in the past, there have been some issues with rollers staying on the track. Sole has promised that they have fixed this and the early returns have proven that they have this issue solved. With this said, you shouldn't have a $1000 machine with this type of design issue. <strong>Spotty customer service</strong> Sole has grown from being one of the larger "quality" manufacturers to being the largest outside of Icon. With this, they have seen business explode in the past few years and it has caused all the problems you experience with huge growth like parts shortages, call delay, and the like. <strong><em>Our verdict: </em></strong> All in all, this machine has its fair share of quality features. Though it has the top reliability you can look for in an elliptical, growing pains have caused some dings to the sterling image of Sole. If your budget is a tight $1000, the best choice is our Best Buy Winner 2014, the Nordic Track A.C.T. Commercial.
