Product Summary

The Sole E55 elliptical is a sturdy and thoughtfully designed product from a highly reputable manufacturer. Like Sole’s other ellipticals, the E55 is equipped with 2-degree inwardly sloped adjustable foot pedals designed to reduce stress on the ankle and knee.

Featuring six standard, two custom, and two heart rate programs, users have a lot of variability in training options. Twenty levels of power incline enables a wide range of intensities suited for beginner and experienced cardio junkies alike. In conjunction with all this, the 15-inch pedals have a generous 20-inch stride length and glides both forward and backwards so users can target different muscle groups. 

The Sole E55 comes equipped with many notable conveniences. Built-in cooling fans, a water bottle holder, Bluetooth speakers, an integrated tablet holder, and USB port keep you cool, hydrated, and entertained. Monitor your fitness metrics on the 9-inch LCD backlit display then download the Sole app for free and transfer the information to FitBit, Record, MapMyRun, or Apple Health. Users find that the Sole app is not very user-friendly but still a nice perk.

Weighing over 200 pounds, this compact machine supports a maximum user weight of 375 pounds.The E55 is not easily assembled so you may consider recruiting some friends or hiring a professional.
