xTerra Free Style 5.8e Elliptical Review
TREADMILL DOCTOR NOTE :
xTerra would have you believe that the Free Style 5.8e is comparable to the Sole E35, nothing could be further from the truth.
With a surface glance the Free Style 5.8e does look comparable to the Sole E35, but when you look closer you can see that xTerra has taken a lot of quality out of this product. Look no further than the ramp and wheel system. While it has an adjustable ramp design like the Sole, it uses a single channel and wheel design where the Sole uses a dual channel and wheel design on each side of the machine. That makes the Sole version dramatically more stable and smooth while the machine is in operation. These machines may be made in the same factory but that is about the only thing they have in common.
