Sole Fitness E95 Elliptical Machine (Previous Years Model) photo 002
The E95 elliptical from Sole® is a value in every sense of the word. It’s designed with an easy-to-use console that features a vibrant LED readout, and a built-in cooling fan and water bottle holder offer total convenience. Fluid, natural motion is provided by the whisper-quiet drive system, while the combination of a 29-lb flywheel and high gear ratio ensures a smooth feel with plenty of top-end resistance.The top model in Sole’s elliptical series, the E95 is a great choice for serious workout enthusiasts. The E95 is equipped with a heavy 30-pound flywheel, a high gear ratio not found on most comparable models, and a whisper-quiet drive system.
The E95’s console includes a vibrant LCD display and an integrated sound system.
As a result, the trainer delivers an extremely fluid performance and plenty of top-end resistance, helping it function like a much more expensive trainer. The E95’s power incline feature, meanwhile, boosts resistance even more while targeting different core muscle groups, adding diversity to your workout. Simply press a button to raise the incline ramp to your preferred position. The ramp angle is fully adjustable from a level plane up to 40 degrees, so you can individually target and work all major lower body muscles.
The E95 makes it easy to track your workout progress via the commercial-grade 9-inch LCD display, which includes windows for resistance, incline, time, distance, calories burned, pulse, and pace. The console also offers a number of handy amenities, including built-in speakers for listening to your iPod or MP3 player, built-in cooling fans, and a water bottle holder.
The E95 comes complete with two heart-rate-controlled workout options, so you can customize the workout specifically to your needs. Throughout your HR workout, the elliptical will display a heart rate zone graph on the console while adjusting the resistance to keep you in your target zone (the trainer includes a wireless chest strap that touts a 99.9 percent accuracy rating). The remainder of the time, you can challenge yourself with the six automatic programs or two customizable programs.
To encourage a more comfortable workout, Sole added oversized, custom-designed foot pedals with durable foam cushioning to the E95. Designed in collaboration with a leading physical therapist and sports enthusiast, the pedals feature a 2-degree inward slope, helping reduce the ankle and knee stress that’s common in other elliptical machines. This collaboration also produced a revolutionary foot pedal adjustment system not found on any other elliptical brand. Sole knows that not everyone walks the same way, so the company’s engineers designed the E95 to adjust to your gait via a dial mechanism called a “worm drive.” This allows you to set the pedal angle from heel to toe, with 10 total choices. The feature also reduces the numb toe effects and sore Achilles tendons common on other elliptical machines.
Additional features include a pair of stationary handlebars with built-in pulse sensors; adjustable incline and resistance controls built into the handles; and 20 resistance levels.
