Product Summary

Sole continues to engineer cardio machines made with high-quality components and conveniences. The Sole E98 Elliptical is engineered for light commercial and residential use, able to withstand up to 5 hours of use per day. This tank of a machine stomps out a hefty footprint which measures 71-inches high, 82-inches long, and 31-inches wide and a weight of 249 pounds. Its size is a testament to its sturdy build and durability.
You will not find any immersive training on this elliptical, but it does come with 10 pre-programmed workouts and the option to join STUDIO, a virtual training platform that houses thousands of workouts. With the new integrated tablet holder, users can stream a workout from STUDIO. The E98 has the ability to transfer fitness metrics from Sole E98 to the Sole app or the following third party apps: Fitbit, Record, Mapmyrun, and Apple Health. A 10.1-inch LCD monitor is easy to read and use but definitely basic.
The 400-pound user weight capacity and 20-inch stride length makes the E98 an option for users of varying heights and weights. Designed in conjunction with physical therapists, users appreciate the comfortable and ergonomic foot pedals. The E98 offers variability in training with its combination of a 32-pound flywheel, power incline, EMS resistance, and moving handlebars. Track your heart rate on the stationary hand pulse grips or utilize the Bluetooth connectivity and use a chest strap.
