How long will the Sole E35 last?

Engineered from high grade steel, the Sole E35 weighs a hearty 231 lbs. and holds users up to a mighty 375 lb. max. It is built to last for at least a decade with proper care and maintenance and is best suited for light to moderate use. Sole covers the E35 with a generous lifetime on the frame, 5 years on electronics and parts, and 2 years on labor.

Brief Overview

The Sole E35 is our 2022 2nd place Best Buy Winner for the $1,000 - $1,400 price range and is a beast of a machine for a budget-friendly price. It contains a plethora of quality components and even has a hint of technology for the user who needs to stay connected. Purchase of the E35 includes a 30-day free trial to Studio which offers on demand classes and a community leaderboard that is in real-time where users can connect with people all over the globe.

Overall Quality

The Sole E35 has a forward and reverse operation that truly offers a full body workout and a unique way to work a variety of muscle groups. It has an expansive range of resistance levels with seamless transitions provided by a 25 lb. flywheel and smooth performance throughout the front drive system. The stride length modifies to a maximum of 20” and has 3 adjustable positions to comfortably fit users of all sizes while a 20% incline knocks the workout intensity out of the ballpark. The E35 has an adjustable console with a 7.5” LCD white back lit screen that displays workout stats and contains 10 built in programs. In addition, the E35 connects to the Sole Studio app and a few others through Bluetooth capabilities to transmit performance data to automatically influence future training sessions. Foot pedals are cushioned and designed by physical therapists to eliminate strain on lower body extremities with a 2-degree inversion angle for perfect positioning of feet during workout sessions. Other amenities provided by the E35 are a water bottle holder, a USB charging port, Bluetooth speakers, a fan, and a place to rest a streaming device.

John - Solid machine, needs quality controlFeb 28, 2019

Good news: seems to be a great machine. We've had it for a week but it's our third elliptical. The assembly instructions are incomplete and at times just wrong. Whoever wrote them is not a native English speaker. Tech support is useless: a simple problem stumped them and for the second problem they never called back. There is no operation manual. But it is a solid machine at a great price.
