In case you haven’t noticed, I have made a foray in to other treadmill and elliptical brands. I’ve also started reviewing exercise bikes. Look for a greater diversity of treadmill brands in the pipeline! Okay, let’s get down to business. Here is my review of the Sole E95 Elliptical Trainer.
Sole E95 Elliptical Trainer Review
Sole E95 Elliptical Trainer Rating: 1 star out of 5 for being identical to the Sole E55 but costing a lot more.
Price: $Arm, Leg, and Firstborn

I could talk about how the Sole E95 Elliptical has an extremely solid frame. I could mention that a 400 lb. user should have no problems with the “quakes”, the very scientific term (Yes, I said scientific.) I use to describe fitness equipment with unstable frames that rattle and shake when being used. There’s also the enormous selection of user programs. (I think Sole has some of the better heart rate control fitness programs right now.) But I’m not going to talk about those things because there is a single fundamental flaw in the Sole E95 Elliptical Trainer. It has nothing to do with design or malfunctions, but everything to do with the dreaded marketing department.
Ah yes, the marketing department; the people who foul up just about any product or company with a stroke of a pen. I have had plenty of clashes with these guys myself and if you have ever worked in corporate America you probably have too. Unfortunately, it looks like the marketing department decided to take the Sole E55 and slap a Sole E95 sticker on it and charge about $250 more for it.
Let’s compare the specs for a second so this
Sole E95 Review makes sense.
As you can see, the specifications are nearly identical from the resistance levels to the built in MP3 player. The big difference is weight capacity and price. There’s a 25 lb. weight capacity difference between the Sole E55 and the Sole E95. Is that really worth paying an extra $250 more for? I can’t recommend the Sole E95 in good faith despite the fact that it is a well made elliptical trainer. The only thing Sole can do to appease the Treadmill Master is lower the price $250. Until I see that happen, go with the Sole E55 guys, you’ll be getting your moneys’ worth.
The better buy by far is the
Sole E55 Elliptical Trainer.
