Product Summary & Specs
When it comes to performance and stability, there are few treadmills out there at this price point that can compare to the Sole F80. This is truly a treadmill designed with heavy runners in mind as its key features are ones normally found on more expensive models. Constructed with the highest grade welded steel, this formidable treadmill is sturdy and durable yet easily folds when not in use. With a 3.5 horsepower motor and elongated running surface (60 inches by 22 inches), the Sole 80 is ideal for those looking to put the miles in. Sole claims that their patented cushioned running surface reduces impact on joints by 40%.
If you are looking for a treadmill jam packed with programs and integrative technology, this is not your machine. The Sole F80 does boast console fans, two integrated Bluetooth speakers, and a USB port so you can connect your smart device and listen to your favorite playlist while you workout. But, the 9-inch display is simple and tracks the important stuf: distance, calories burned, and heart rate to name a few.
