Rated as the best elliptical under $1,000, the 2013 Sole E25 Elliptical features a vibrant LCD display as well as a number of creature comforts. Capable of functioning in both the forward and reverse directions, the 2013 Sole E25 Elliptical provides ample opportunity to get an extensive workout. Below are the details and benefits in our Sole E25 Elliptical (new 2013 Model) review.
With its whisper quiet drive system, its heavy 25 pound flywheel and high gear ratio, the Sole E25 Elliptical offers a challenging workout while remaining extremely smooth. With its power incline feature, you can vary your position in order to diversify your workout while increasing its intensity. Capable of being adjusted to up to 30 degrees, the incline plan allows you to target individual muscles or to target an entire muscle group. The incline is easily changed with just the push of a button.
To assist you with enjoying a comfortable workout, the 2013 Sole E25 features oversized foot pedals designed in collaboration with sports enthusiasts and a leading physical therapist. The unique pedals boast a 2 degree inward slope, which helps to reduce the knee and ankle strain that is common in other elliptical machines. The pedals are also articulating, which allows them to change to suit the way you naturally move. Not only does this allow you to work out in a more natural fashion, but it also reduces your risk of developing a sore Achilles tendon or experiencing numb toe effects. Meanwhile, the four real wheels on heavy duty rails increases stability and provides for a smoother workout with less side-to-side foot pedal motion.
To aid in creature comforts, the 2013 Sole E25 Elliptical boasts a number of quality features. These include a sound system with built-in speakers and MP3 hookup, a water bottle holder, a built-in cooling fan and an electronic console boasting a vibrant back lit 6.5 inch LCD display. The LCD display allows you to easily choose from the 10 available programs, which includes 6 standard programs, 2 custom programs and 2 heart rate programs.
Featuring stationary handle bars, the Sole E25 Elliptical makes it possible to easily monitor your heart rate. With its built-in pulse sensors, you can monitor your heart rate by simply gripping the handle bars. Alternatively, you may choose to purchase a heart rate chest strap in order to enjoy the optional wireless monitoring feature.
The 2013 Sole E25 Elliptical comes complete with a lifetime warranty on the frame, which is made of heavy 38 mm steel and can hold users weighing up to 350 pounds. Electronics and parts are covered by a three year warranty, while labor is covered for one year.
