The Sole E35 elliptical machine is a step up from the popular E25, with a slightly higher price tag to go with it. It continues a tradition of excellent machines by Sole, a brand name known for elliptical performance and long life.
You're getting a machine that's always been a favorite with users who don't mind going over the seemingly magical cut-off price of $1000. While listing at over $2000, you can get the newer model for $1399 on sale (or less), putting it at either the upper end of mid-priced equipment or the lower end of high-priced ellipticals.
Features on the Sole E35 elliptical's new model include:
Trainers immediately point out in their Sole E35 elliptical reviews that the new version continues to out-perform similarly priced machines by other manufacturers. The smooth, quiet ride that won't disturb the neighbors or interfere with your enjoyment of your MP3 is noticed in particular.
Consumer reviews by in-home users noted that it is easy to assemble in just a few hours. They attributed this to the precision design and engineering, with every high quality part a perfect fit, right down to the bolts. A few people compared its performance to that of higher priced home models, giving it a favorable review for the same fluid movement for hundreds of dollars less.
The 2016 redesign introduced Bluetooth technology to the E35 and some of the ellipticals, which allows you to sync your workout data to either Sole's own app or some other popular fitness apps such as Apple Health and FitBit. This helps them compete better with NordicTrack, a brand known for having the latest technology built into their machines.
While you're considering the Sole E35 elliptical take a look at the slightly more expensive E55 model, which offers a larger display and a much more compact frame. It's perfect for those with space constraints.
Also take a look at the entry level E25 model, another great choice that will put you just under $1000 if that's your budget.
We love it when a company keeps building on its success. Sole has kept all of the features that made the older version of the Sole E35 and improved on a few of them. The four wheels attached to rails at the rear of the E35 still reduce side to side movement of the footpedals, which is a detail you don't usually find at this price point.
They've increased the already generous stride length to an impressive 20" and upped the weight capacity to 375 pounds without pushing the limits of the machine's performance. If you're looking for a step up from the E25, the Sole E35 elliptical trainer is a good deal for serious in-home users.
