Pros of Sole E55 Elliptical Trainer
- Long stride to allow for natural body movements
Sole E55 Elliptical Trainer has a long 20 inches stride length that is great for not just average height users but also for those who have a more than average height. This stride length makes you feel comfortable that obviously results in a more effective workout.
- Eddy current braking system
This is a braking system that is considered the best these days to add to the resistance of any elliptical trainer. Sole E55 Elliptical Trainer makes use of this system that employs a small magnet that comes close to the flywheel whenever you want to increase the resistance level.
- 27 pounds flywheel
It is basic physics that the heavier the flywheel, the more fluid motion the trainer provides to the user. This elliptical machine has a heavy 27 pounds flywheel to make for smooth and fluid workouts.
- Cooling fan
E55 has a cooling fan on the main frame of the machine to make you feel comfortable with cool air while you are sweating. This prevents you from tiring quickly and allows you to do workout for a longer time period.
- Long warranty
The trainer comes with an extended warranty on frame, parts, and labor. This was only to be expected with the expertise of the company and its long experience in making sturdy elliptical machines. The trainer has a lifetime guarantee on the frame, a 5 year warranty on parts and 2 year warranty on labor. This is a big plus for this elliptical trainer.
- Adjustable incline
One can add to the incline with the press of a button and make his workout a bit more challenging. This automatic system allows one to simulate the experience of running on a slope with a steep incline.
Cons of Sole E55 Elliptical Trainer
- The company claims the machine to have a weight capacity of 375 pounds. But the machine weighs only around 200 pounds making it circumspect when it comes to allowing a person more than 300 pounds in weight to do workouts on this machine.
- This elliptical trainer comes in a high price range. But the grips provided belie this high price as they appear to be standard and not very comfortable as are available with other elliptical trainers.
Authorized consumer reports
“Sole E55 Elliptical Trainer is a sturdy machine that is extraordinarily quiet. It is very easy to assemble and do workouts upon. The information provided by the LCD panel is quite large but easy to understand to make the workouts more effective.”
“The trainer is a bargain at its price. I was a little skeptical at first but found the quality very impressive after use. It is a bulky machine with a solid built. It provides decent workouts in a very smooth manner. I am more than average in height and the stride length of the machine has proved just right for me. The only issue I found was with the water bottle holder that seems to have a very steep angle that can cause spill of liquid if the seal is not tight.”
