Sole E20 Elliptical – Overview

Typically sold in stores only, as opposed to the rest of the Sole elliptical lineup that is available directly through the company via their website, the Sole E20 is a very capable entry level elliptical with features not typically found on machines in its price range. As such it’s a very good choice for those looking for a solid cardio machine for their homes that won’t break the bank.

Let’s jump into our review and take a look at the best features…

Best Features

There’s a lot to like on the Sole E20. It has an 18″ stride, which is ideal for all but users who are on the taller side. You get 10 built in workout programs plus unlimited programs through the company’s partnership with Studio, a provider of on-demand classes with top personal trainers. So there’s plenty of options on and off the machine.

You get a nice variety of resistance levels as well as 20 levels of incline capability. There’s a small but functional 5.5″ LCD console that shows all of your workout metrics. You get large, no slip pedals, wireless heart rate capability, cooling fan and water bottle holder.

One of the best features, although not an actual component, is the Sole warranty, which is really impressive for such an inexpensive elliptical. You get lifetime on the frame, 3 years on parts and electronics and 1 year on labor.

Sole E20 Test Drive

We tried out the Sole E20 a few times and for an entry level elliptical, it feels pretty good. We weren’t entirely comfortable with the 18″ stride, as we’re on the taller side, but it should be OK for most average size users. Our model seemed to be constructed well but we did hear a tiny bit of squeaking, but not enough for it to interrupt our workout. We liked the bottle holder and the built in fan as we were working out in a very hot room. We also liked the 20 different incline levels and the fact that we could play our music through the speakers.

If we had to choose one Sole elliptical our reviews would probably lead us to the E35 or E95 which seem to compare more favorably to other ellipticals in the price range, but for the money the E20 is not a bad choice by any stretch. We thought the workout was very good, far better than we’ve experienced on some sub $1000 models and certainly better than most in the $500 or $600 range.

Sole E20 Review – Conclusion

The Sole E20 is a very capable entry level elliptical machine for the beginner and intermediate user. It has everything you need in a home cardio machine, including incline capability, built in workouts, low impact, quiet drive system, grip and wireless heart rate monitoring and a whole lot more.

If you want something a little more advanced you can check out the E55 or the Elliptical Review Guru favorite Sole E95, as those will be more durable and give you additional capabilities.
