SOLE E35 Elliptical 4.5 5 90 90
Very good Elliptical This is a very good machine. It is well built, sturdy and ergonomically fitting. It doesn't offer a very high difficulty level, however. I would like for it to have a really hard level so that I can limit my workout to 30 minutes. I run it at the highest incline and highest resistance level (both 15) but it is still fairly simple, thus I have to increase the length of time I use it as that is the only other option to get a decent workout since I am "peddling" as fast as I can. I still recommend this machine. It offers everything the higher-priced E95 offers, except the larger screen but is hundreds of dollars cheaper. January 22, 2015
Nice Machine Really quite, I'm loving it! Very heavy to move. I unbolted the articulating arms from the flywheel to move it up a long flight of stairs; simple to do, just remove the plastic decorative trim piece (1 screw) then remove the 1 large chrome bolt that bolts the articulating arm into the flywheel, there is one bolt for each arm on each side of the flywheel. Much easier to move and less awkward without articulating arms flopping around and it is not as heavy, but, it still requires 2 strong guys to move it up the stairs. Assembly took about 5 hours, awesome youtube video available online that really helps to follow, I am a girl, fairly mechanically inclined and I figured it out watching the video no problem, the book directions alone are a little hard to follow.

Great product ... so far! Purchased this product several weeks ago and it is a quality elliptical. Very smooth action and it has all of the features that I require. It was very time consuming to assemble. Not to mention that it is bulky and heavy. If you are not a strong guy or gal, would recommend getting help or having someone assemble it for you.

Well Built Elliptical We looked at a number of elliptical machines as we were trying decide which one to purchase. After looking around and reading numerous reviews, we determined that our initial intention of spending about $800 wasn't going to buy a reliable machine with the features we wanted. After upping our budget a bit, we looked at the Sole E35 and were immediately impressed by the build quality, the fact that the company stands behind it with a 5 years parts warranty including the electronics, and the fact that in the vast majority of reviews the Sole customer service people were very responsive and helpful. It's worth noting that we looked at this machine in three different Dick's Sporting Goods stores in the area over the course of a couple of weeks of shopping, and all of the three display units were not very well maintained... loose parts, scraped wheel tracks and squeaks. But looking at the way the E35 is built, we were still impressed with it even though the stores didn't do a very good job on presentation, so we decided to make the purchase. Our Sole E35 was delivered yesterday afternoon, and this morning I spent a few hours unpacking and getting it assembled. The two guys who delivered it kindly carried the 260 lb box down the hill around to the back of the house and placed it in our walk-out basement where we have our gym. Unpacking was straightforward, and everything was VERY well packed and protected. This elliptical is made in Taiwan rather than mainland China like most others, and the quality of the packing materials made a very good first impression. Each part was in its own recyclable plastic bag, and everything was very well supported by styrofoam, heavy cardboard and plastic stiffeners, and the smaller cardboard boxes containing the misc parts. Although I hate that styrofoam isn't environmentally friendly, at least it wasn't the China variety that makes a zillion little particles that end up getting tracked everywhere. First impressions as I unpacked and organized all the pieces: The unit is definitely heavy, but that's largely because of all the thick metal parts. This is one of the aspects of the design that caused us to buy this model after spending some time with the display unit and inspecting how it is made. As an engineer, I always look closely at the choice of materials and the workmanship in the design. This elliptical has well-made components including large bearings, excellent welds, thick and stable materials and a nice finish. Assembly was a piece if cake. A large, heavy cake to be sure, but anyone with a little mechanical skill can assemble this thing with no problem. I spent maybe three hours, taking my time. All the major assemblies are already put together; the assembly process is just getting the parts put together that prohibit reasonable packaging: you simply mate the front assembly to the back assembly, install the main vertical structure and the control panel, put the handlebars in place, and then mount all the plastic covers. The instructions are clear, although the diagrams are a little small so 50+ year old eyes need plenty of light to see the small parts. The fasteners are all on a card, separated into the four primary assembly steps, which made finding the right fasteners very easy. There is also a great video on Sole's web site that walks you through each step... although I'll admit I didn't look at it until tonight when I logged on to register the unit for its warranty coverage. But, the video is just a nice extra because assembly is really pretty simple without it. We looked at a bunch of ellipticals before buying this one, and one of the things that became clear in that process is that assembly is a critical aspect for any of these things to help ensure they continue to operate squeekless for a long period of time. So I decided to use some Loctite on the frame bolts so as to hopefully never have to worry about things getting loose. Sole already thought about this, however, becayse all of the nuts provided have nylon inserts so they lock in place, and several of the bolts that thread into tapped holes in metal parts came with a thread lock coating already on them. Still, I added some of my own Loctite for good measure. It's also important to ensure fasteners are tightened properly. I found it interesting that Sole says your should tighten them "as tight as you can" rather than providing any torque specs. Folks who don't have a lot of experience tightening bolts can probably follow Sole's advice. And for those who have a good feel for how tight to crank various sizes of nuts and bolts, you won't have any problem as they are all sized well. The tools provided are okay, but I opted to supplement those with better quality box wrenches and sockets. Once assembled, I positioned the E35 in its designated location next to our Pacemaster treadmill. Given the length of this unit (about 7 feet), I decided to make some minor adjustments to the six adjustable feet to compensate for the basement floor over that distance. I found that by lifting upward (with a fair amount of force given the weight) on one side and then the other for a given support (front, center and rear), I could estimate whether the force was similar on either side. I adjusted three feet, locked them back in place (there's a lock nut), and the elliptical felt very solid and stable. I would NOT place an elliptical on a carpet, or use a mat/pad like is good practice for a treadmill to keep it from moving around. The six rubber feet under the E35 are very stable, and any additional cushion from a carpet or rubber mat will just make this very tall piece of equipment rock unnecessarily. Placing it directly on the floor, it's rock solid and doesn't move around. When I first powered it up, the display initialized, displayed the software version and then settled into the mode of waiting for the operator to make a workout selection. As soon as I hit the "Manual" button, the bedreaded "E3" error displayed! I had read other reviews about this -- indicating a problem with the incline ramp. A quick scan of the manual said nothing about errors, but it did mention that if you experience a problem with the incline function, try calibrating it. I did that, and a minutes later when that automated process completed, the E3 error was gone and all was well. After this experience, I thought I'd cruise through the "Engineering Mode" to see what else I could learn about the software. All of the functions were pretty easy to understand with the results as expected. Now satisfied that the thing was ready to rock, I strapped on the included heart monitor check strap and did a short workout. The machine operated extremely smoothly, solid, and in absolute silence! What a pleasure to use. The chest strap sensor seems to work very well... I checked my pulse manually at various heart rates to confirm what the display was telling me and it was on the money every time. I checked out the programmable "User 1" button (I left the "User 2" button for my wife), and set up my own interval training. Setting it up was a little tedious waiting for the display to tell me what was next, but now that I know what's coming, I found that you can just press ahead getting your settings (resistance level, incline, time plus age and weight) the way you want them. The "HR 1" and 2 modes are interesting in that they adjust the elliptical during a workout to make you work harder or less hard to try to maintain a specific heart rate. I only looked at one of them long enough to verify that this works. I'm not sure how useful this would be if you varied your peddling speed in the process, but we'll see when I get a chance to tinker with it. What's not to like? Well, 1) the fan is useless. I have a nice fan that I use when running on the treadmill that I'll just point at the elliptical when I'm using it and ignore the little one in the control panel. Also, 2) anything placed on the magazine/tablet/phone holder sits right on top of the display. I don't ever intend to try to read -- not sure I could -- when exercising, so I'll just stick with the TV that I have mounted on the wall to take my mind off of what I'm doing. And, 3) if I want to listen to music, I'll play it through the stereo in the gym rather than through the little speakers on the control console which are pretty much an afterthought. None of these "cons" is meaningful for me. Some elliptical fans will want internet connectivity, although I for one am thrilled to get away from the internet to get a little honest exercise. Others will want to pay a monthly fee to run through a video taken in some location on the planet, but that's not an included feature either. I think I can live without it. It would be nice to have workout details captured in an app to be able to see how things are going over time. I may end up wearing my blue tooth chest strap that is captured by my phone, but you only get heart rate, not resistance level, incline, pedal RPM, etc. This is a feature I would really like to have, and perhaps Sole will add this in the future. One key consideration for me is what kind of warranty the manufacturer provides and what type of customer service they have. Sole provides a 5 year parts warranty on the E35, including the electronics, which to me means they stand behind their product (compare this to one or two years, or in some cases even less). And while I haven't had to make use of it (yet?), the vast majority of feedback from others is that their customer service is very helpful and supportive. They provide a shorter 2 year warranty on labor, but I don't ever plan to have anyone else touch this thing. It's not a rocket science device, and replacing parts is pretty simple, so it was the 5 year parts deal that was meaningful to me. For the money, this is a very well-made elliptical that is a pleasure to use and highly recommended. I'll provide an update or two over time as well see how it holds up. January 14, 2015
Smooth action Nice eliptical - using and enjoying it. Fairly easy to assemble January 13, 2015
Home gym Works great in my home gym. Would recommend to others. January 13, 2015
Product has lots of options The elliptical has a lot of options, a little complicated to figure out. January 13, 2015
Sole 35 Good so far After much research, decided to go with the Sole E35. Purchased this online and picked up at store. Good customer service at store, was helped right away. Assembly took a few hours, Youtube video was helpful as manual just shows a parts diagram, no text to explain steps. So far the machine works well. Is very quiet, speakers are good enough to play TV through. One negative is the slot to hold water bottle or remote, it is not deep enough. The remote won't stay, had to rig up cardboard shelf to keep it in place. Used it for about three weeks, like it so far. January 13, 2015
Excellent Workout Machine It has been only a month since I bought. It is very sturdy, stable. I really like it. This is the first elliptical machine I liked. The only issue is assembling. I would certainly suggest manufacturer to put to gether better instructions. Very time consuming and poor instructions. That's why I gave 4 stars otherwise 5. January 11, 2015
FIne machine Bought it around thanksgiving and am very satisfied thus far. Set up: Was able to muscle the box into my basement by myself, but you're much better off with 2 movers. Found a youtube video showing how to assemble it and followed that. Took 2-3 hours by myself. Usage: Doing 45-75 minutes maybe six days a week and no issues yet. I don't really bother with the programs, prefer to set it manually. My 3rd elliptical so i'm used to long sessions. incline/resistance have 20 levels each and i'm around 18/18 for the workout before i find it an effort. Guess the lower levels are for lighter people and beginners. Only 2 more levels left to move up for me. A more elliptical (less circular# motion than my previous Precor machine, but i'm used to it now. Handlebars are good. i mostly hold on at the bottom, palms down but nice to be able to switch for variety. Quiet and smooth. Sometimes get a quiet 'crackling' sound that goes away after a few minutes. Tried to adjust the foot pedals, but prefer the preset flat setting. Toes still tend to go numb on a long session. It had an issue on the control panel misbehaving, but a call to the 1-800 number corrected it with some resetting button pushes. I didn't see them explained in the manual, but it was quickly corrected and has not reoccurred. irritations: The cupholder is at a low angle so it looks like things are always about to fall out. The plug connector is on the front wheel and does not reach to the outlet behind the machine. So i had to connent it to a power strip for it to reach. If it were more central, it could be plugged front or back. Last machine cost $400 and lasted four years with one repair job #$90# before getting a terminal squeaking. So this will have to last a decade to be as economical. January 7, 2015
