The Sole E20 Elliptical – The New Budget-Friendly Model

Sole introduces the Sole E20 elliptical as a budget alternative to their higher priced models. Available exclusively through Sears and Dick's stores.

What You Get

The E20 is a solid elliptical that Sole has developed for fans of their light commercial elliptical machines who can't afford their more expensive models. While this is a low end entry for Sole, it retains most of the features that make their ellipticals a pleasure to work out on, including the oversized, articulating foot pedals with a slight, 2% inward slope. These features reduce the risk of tendon injury or numbness in the toes during rigorous workouts.

The Word on the Street

The Sole E20 is one of the most popular entry level ellipticals, due to the fact that you get a lot of features and capabilities for a very competitive price.

The elliptical used to only be available in stores, but from time to time the company brings it online as well. When it does come online it sells out very fast, simply because it's such a great deal.

For under $700, you get a very sturdy machine that can accommodate up to 325 lbs, more than most sub $1000 elliptical trainers.

There are plenty of built in programs, including a few that are heart rate specific, and you get an impressive 20 degrees of power incline training capability.

You can use the integrated heart grips and also measure your heart rate wirelessly if you have a chest strap. There's a sound system, adjustable console and a really solid warranty, better than you'll find anywhere else.

One of the newest features, now available on all Sole ellipticals, is access to the Studio program, which gives you an endless array of on-demand workout programs, leaderboards, tracking and a whole lot more...similar to what NordicTrack and ProForm offer with their iFit program.

Sole E20 Elliptical Review - Bottom Line

If you're in the market for a feature-packed elliptical that won't break the bank, the Sole E20 is definitely one to consider. You get incline capability, solid construction, Bluetooth, built in workouts plus Studio on-demand training, wireless heart rate monitoring and so much more.

This one is very hard to beat, but keep in mind it is more of an entry level elliptical. If you want something more advanced, look at one of the higher priced models such as the Sole E95, one of our All Elliptical favorites.
