Sole E95 Elliptical Review


Sole E95 Elliptical Review

The Sole E95 elliptical‘s maximum user weight of 400 pounds means that those who are looking to shed a lot of weight will be able to use this unit efficiently without worry of structural damage. The flywheel weighs a generous 34 pounds, providing a much smoother, quieter ride than many other models in this category.

The incline goes all the way up to 30 degrees and there are 20 levels of resistance, which allows the rider as intense a workout as desired. Control of both of these features can be done from the handles so that the rider does not need to pause mid-workout for adjustments.

The Sole E95 elliptical has an adjustable stride length from 20 to 22-inches which provides flexibility for those of a larger height. The oversized pedals are cushioned and adjustable, built with a 2 degree inward slope which keeps the knees and ankles from absorbing too much pressure. The pedals also go forward and in reverse, which is not common among other models that are similar.

The Solo E95 has a base weight of 215 pounds and can be moved for storage, as it includes transport wheels.

Sole E95 Elliptical – Workout Programs

The Sole E95 elliptical comes with only 10 workout programs; 6 are standard programs, 2 are heart-rate programs, and the final 2 are fully customizable to the needs and goals of the rider.  Although the Sole E95 elliptical does not have as many workout programs as others in this category, It is a solid machine for those looking to do the basics right and with higher levels of resistance and control due in part to the heavier flywheel and adjustable stride length.


Heart rate monitoring is available through the in handle controls and also included is a hands-free heart-rate chest strap, not supplied as standard with competitor models. The display console includes a large 9-inch LCD blue backlit display screen where the speakers are built-in. Available on the display are heart rate, speed, distance, calories burned, incline level, and current program. Large buttons make it easy for the user to make adjustments and choose programs and options, while in motion.


The Sole E95 elliptical is compatible with most devices like, smartphones and MP3 players via a plug in for listening to music or an audiobook through the unit’s built-in speakers.  There is a built-in water bottle holder as well as a space to put your MP3 player or anything else that is small enough to fit. Cooling fans are built into the unit to keep the rider refreshed.

Sole E95 Elliptical – Review Summary

The Sole E95 elliptical is a powerful machine for those who want the option to increase their workouts and develop their strength. The incline and resistance levels, as well as the sleek styling of the unit, make you feel like you are in a professional gym, without ever having to leave your home. The warranty for the frame is lifetime, parts and electronics 5 years, labor 2 years; this is one of the better offerings on warranties.
