Expert Reviews

Industry experts really like the Sole E95 elliptical trainer pretty much unanimously. It receives very high marks from many top consumer magazines and has garnered many awards in the under $2000 category. At $1,799 or less it’s a great deal (We’ve seen it as low as $1699 during special sales!). What they like the most about this model is the impressive amount of features included for the price.

Some of the great features include a 400 lb. max weight capacity, an adjustable 20 inch stride, ECB (eddy current brakes) resistance which allows for smoother, quieter motion, and one of the best warranties in the business.

You also get a nice, updated 10.1″ TFT LCD interface with all of the relevant workout stats, a built in fan, speakers and a water bottle holder. Experts also note the very heavy flywheel. At 27 lbs, it is one of the heaviest you will find at this price level. Remember that the heavier the flywheel, the smoother/quieter the motion is. There is also incline capability and a heart rate chest strap included for more accurate readings.

The Sole E95 offers the features and capabilities of machines typically priced in the $2000-2500 range, so it’s a great choice at under $2,000.

User Reviews

Users seem to love all of the Sole Fitness elliptical trainers, especially the E35, E55 and the E95. They cite the smooth motion of the machines, as well as the gym quality workout and a price that’s quite competitive. They also love the fact that they pack so many great features into these machines. Many owners talk about the articulating, oversized foot pedals with the special cushioning which alleviates a lot of the stress on the feet and lower leg muscles.

Taking a look through all of the available customer Sole E95 reviews, it gets an average of 4 1/2 stars. That’s about as good as it gets as far as ratings go for sports equipment. Over 60% of users gave the E95 a 5-star rating, 20% a 4-star rating, and the remaining 20% was 3, 2 or 1 star. Most of these users were happy with the workout, the construction and the quietness of the motion. The handful of negative reviews were mostly about a few broken parts and issues with tech support, but this is always going to be an issue for any brand. There are always some defective machines and always some experiences with customer support that aren’t ideal.

So overall, very positive reviews from buyers. Now let’s move on to our Sole E95 reviews….

Sole E95 Test Drive

The E95 is probably our favorite elliptical trainer from Sole. Although it is one of the pricier ones, it is as close to a gym quality workout that it gets, mimicking the feel of some $2000 and up machines. It has a very heavy flywheel at 27 pounds, which means that when you use it it is super quiet and smooth. You can adjust the ramp from 0 to 20 degrees, which is very nice, to vary your workout and hit different muscle groups. The pedals are adjustable and they tilt, which helps you minimize pressure on your ankles during the workout. We find that when pedals are uncomfortable, or when they don’t incline, after a half hour or so your feet are killing you. Not the case here.

Overall, we got a really got workout on this machine, with limited stress on our joints. If you can swing the price tag, this is the most comfortable and stable machine Sole makes.

Also a note for all of you taller individuals, Sole recently introduced the E95S elliptical trainer, with stride length up to 24″. Although 20″ is plenty for most users, those who are very tall might be best suited with the ability to expand the stride length even further.

Conclusion

According to our latest Sole E95 reviews this is a very solid machine with good reports from both experts in the industry and consumers who have purchased these elliptical trainers. To find out more about the popular Sole E95 elliptical trainer you can check out the specs and features on the official Sole site.

Note that many of their ellipticals now have Bluetooth technology, introduced in 2016, which allows you to sync your workouts with their own app as well as Apple Health, FitBit and others. So for those of you looking to get a little more out of your workouts, this is a welcome addition.
