At ItsAboutTreadmills, one of our favorite brands we talk about on our site has got to be the Sole Treadmill Brand. Sole have about eight treadmills in their product range and they do a pretty good job of manufacturing treadmills that are solid, durable, comfortable machines for people to workout on.
We really do feel that Sole Treadmills are designed and built to really satisfy the consumer as they include only the highest quality of components on their machines. Over the years, Sole have been found in high end hotels such as the hilton hotels, but in recent times, have also made their way into the broader individual consumer market.
What Do I Like So Much About Sole Treadmills?
I guess one of most intriguing things about Sole Treadmills that we admire so much is that they offer a lifetime warranty on their motors! If you know a thing or two about motors on treadmills, you will understand that they are one of the first major components to fail on a device like this.
Another guarantee that they offer is the deck warranty which is three years. These sort of guarantee’s assure better confidence on your purchase with the Sole Treadmill brand. So with all that being said, which treadmill model is popular amongst all the other machines in the brand treadmill product line? Lets talk about a machine that gets a lot of attention these days…
Sole F80 Treadmill Review
Introducing the Sole F80 Treadmill. This product is currently one of our favorite treadmills out of all the treadmill machines in the marketplace right now. At this moment in time, we have actually ranked it number one in our top five treadmill machines. If you check out some other trusted web properties online, you will also notice that they have some positive words to say about the Sole F80 treadmill. There is good reason for it too… let us explain why we have such
admiration for this machine.
What’s So Good About the F80 Sole Treadmills?
I guess the first point I want to mention is that the frame on this machine is very solid and sturdy. Its a power coated steel wielded frame. Its one heavy piece of fitness equipment that weights in at about two hundred and fifty pounds. When you are on this device, there
is very little shaking from the treadmill as you walk, jog or run. This makes for comfortable exercising as you dont want a treadmill that shakes everytime you put your foot forward to take a step whilst exercising.
Moving onto the running surface of the device. The Sole F80 comes with a generous 20 x 60 inch deck surface which allows for enough comfortable room to exercise on, even if you are tall and have a larger stride or are over weight and have a few extra pounds on the side, you should be able to fit comfortably using this machine. The deck also comes with a cushion flex shock absorption system, which is great at reducing the impact to your feet, ankles, hips and knees and
makes it comfortable for those that use the machine on a frequent basis.
As mentioned before, the motor comes with a generous lifetime warranty. The motor itself is a continuous 3.0 horse power heavy duty motor and can deliver speeds of up to eleven miles per hour. If you have limited space in your home for a piece of fitness equipment like this, you’ll be happy to know that the Sole F80 Treadmill also comes with an easy to fold deck design feature. So whenever you want to use it, all you gotta do is pull down the deck surface and click it into
place. When your done, just simply lift the deck back up into place.
Any Drawbacks to The Sole F80 Treadmill?
Even though this device is ranked number one on our top five list of treadmills, there are a few things that are not so good about the Sole F80 treadmill. I’ll talk about one in particular, which is of course the fan that is attached to the console. I really like the idea of a fan blowing cool air on your face, but these fans are very poor in how they actually perform for you. They are not very convincing when you turn them on and I believe you are better off without it. If you feel like you want to have fans blowing cool air as you exercise, I would suggest using your own fan as it might prove more beneficial.
