Are Sole Treadmills loud? While treadmills offer an excellent opportunity to work out and to stay healthy, one common complaint amongst consumers is that they are too loud. Not only can these noises be iritating to the ears, but it can also make it difficult to watch television, to listen to music, to read or to engage in other activities while working out. Furthermore, if the treadmill is used in a room that is shared with other family members, a noisy treadmill can become a nuisance. Therefore, when purchasing a treadmill, it is important to consider how much noise the equipment will make while in use.
To better determine how to select a quiet treadmill, it is helpful to understand why treadmills may be noisy in the first place. In many treadmills, the excessive noise is caused by the large number of parts that are used to operate the treadmill. The problem becomes even worse when a small motor is used to move all of these parts. Therefore, you should look for a treadmill that keeps its parts to a minimum while also offering a motor with at least 2.5 HP.
The treadmill’s belt may also be a source of excessive noise. If the belt guides begin to push on the belt, it can create an irritating whining noise. The drive system, which consists of the belt, its pulleys, the speed sensor fins and the motor fan, can also be problematic. Unfortunately, even those treadmills that start off relatively quiet can become noisy over time if the drive system was poorly constructed or made from low-quality materials. Therefore, it is important to search for a treadmill that offers a quality drive system that will not wear down quickly from use.
When purchasing a Sole treadmill, you can take comfort in knowing that all of these factors have been taken into consideration. Not only are Sole treadmills designed to be durable, but they are also designed for quiet operation for now and well into the future. Even the most basic F63 model boasts a 2.5 HP motor and a Phenolic Deck with Shock Absorption technology. With its rack and pinion gear design and its 2 ½ inch rollers for its 2-ply belt, the treadmill is designed to withstand years of use while keeping moving parts to a minimum. Step it up a couple notches to the F80 model and you get the patented Cushion Flex Whisper Deck and 2 ¾ inch rollers for a double woven 2-ply belt. The top-of-the-line commercial-grade TT8 pushes the rollers up to 3 inches and offers a Cushion Flex Shock Absorption Whisper Deck.
In short, Sole treadmills are built with quality and comfort in mind. Regardless of the model you choose, you can count on your Sole treadmill to be quiet, durable and effective toward helping you achieve your health goals.
