Updated Shop Review: Sole E35 Elliptical Product Specs And Features (2021/2022)

We are now entering the winter season, and 2022 is just around the corner. I remember all the way back in 2016 when we published one of our first blog posts here, and now the time has come to update our previous findings to accurately reflect the current 2021 model. The Bacchetta Shop & User Fanpage is happy to announce a our second (REVISED) review (by popular request from our readers!), we continue to focus on winter cross-training alternatives: The Sole E35 Elliptical Machine is a fitness machine that can provide you with a quiet drive system and a fast paced cardio workout in any place of the home. Our last article covered the E95, in this article we cover the E35 Elliptical trainer features. Providing a challenging cardio workout, there are features like a backlit LDC display and a training data tracking device to help you stay up to date on your workouts. Based on reviews, the overall design makes the price worth it. The machine has a measuring size of 27 by 58 by 83. The 375 pound weight limit gives plenty of leeway for people of a heavy weight to use the machine.

Sole E35 Elliptical Product Specs And Features

Let start by looking at the Sole E35 Elliptical specifications and features as listed by Sole Fitness, Steve Frazier at Elliptical Consumers, and Consumer Reports 2021 (where you can find detailed product test, and in-depth reviews).

– Sole E35 Elliptical Adjustable Pedals

The pedals are completely adjustable. The stride and incline of the entire cardio machine can be adjusted very easily with a few adjustment movements. The 20 to 22 inch stride length system allows for you to get multiple types of movements.

– Plenty Of Programs From Sole Fitness

Plenty of programs allows for you to have an easier time when you’re trying to get your workout in on a Sole Fitness Elliptical. For example, there are six standard programs, two custom programs you can use, and even two heart rate programs. The heart rate monitoring uses chest straps and pulse grips to help you exercise efficiently. The E35 Elliptical Programs are perfect since they allow you to follow a certain plan while you’re exercising. The new workout programs from Sole Fitness (here) are of high quality and usually more then good enough for most people. Nowadays you can also connect your smart devices to choose your favorite program. More: Elliptical trainers better than treadmills for increasing heart rate.

– LCD Console

There is a 7.5 inch display drive system that can provide you with an easy view of what you need to do. There is 15 inch pedals added to it. The sound system helps play music without the use of headphones in the ear while you’re running.

– The E35 Drive System

There is a very quiet drive system. This allows for you to run and use the machine using a very fluid motion that functions both forward and backwards. The 29 pound flywheel and the high gear on the Sole E35 Elliptical helps create that perfectly smooth feel as you are using the machine. This gives riders the chance to continue exercising without hearing a loud noise that most traditional fitness machines make. There is less resistance that can make it annoying to run on the elliptical. It’s fast, fluid, and quick.

– Extra Size In Foot Pedals

These were designed by a professional physical therapist. The engineers from Sole Fitness created a two degree inward slope throughout each pedal. This helps on reducing the ankle and knee stress that your body has to deal with. Most ellipticals will give you a lot of stress throughout the knees and ankles because they force you to move your body in a certain way. This simple little design allows for users to avoid future or potential pain throughout their body. The knees and ankles are very fragile, and they can deal with more pain in the future if not properly cared for.

– Four Rear Wheels

There is an additional four rear wheels on the Sole E35 that are actually very heavy duty rails. This causes for the rider to get a much smoother experience as they exercise. The stable feel helps reduce any side to side pedaling motion that is oftentimes experienced on other machines.

– Inclining Is Easier On The E35 Elliptical

You can add in a perfect amount of resistance if needed. The resistance added will only make you workout more effectively. You can even achieve variable positions to give you a challenging workout with a quick touch of a button. Just one touch can change the movement of the elliptical to go higher and make it tougher to run. This gives you that extra challenge. It will still remain fluid, fast, and also quiet as you are running. You can adjust the angle of the ramo between 0-30 degrees, so you can change it up to target the different muscle groups of your body.

Pros Of The Sole E35 – Based Off Of Reviews

One of the main pros of the Sole Fitness E35 is the fact it has additional features like a strong surround system and a nice fan to help keep you cool as you continue to run. This allows for you to get the additional breeze that you need during and throughout your workouts. Since the machine is extremely quiet, you don’t need to worry at all about having to get other people hearing you working out in your fitness room at home or at your gym. The machine is quiet and fluid. Most users experience plenty of easy access to the machine. This is what most people like about the LCD. Setting up one of their programs is easy and fast. More: Don’t underestimate the elliptical.

Cons Of The Sole E35 – Based Off Of Reviews

One of the main cons is how large the E35 Elliptical trainer is. The specifications and measurements is quite large. It is not a tiny little compact machine you can lug around anywhere in the house. If it were going to be out in a house, a huge fitness room will be needed, or else the entire room will just be able to have this elliptical to fit inside. The heavyset design makes it even more tough to bring to your home since it’s very heavy and weighs nearly 270+ pounds to carry. Having multiple people is usually needed to help assemble the system since the elliptical is quite large with heavyset parts and equipment.

You don’t want anyone to trip or hurt themselves by either dropping the weights or moving the machine around. It’s tough because of its large size and then there’s the fact that you will always need to clean it after every workout to get it clean again.

Is This Elliptical Trainer Worth Buying?

The Sole E35 Elliptical is only worth buying if you feel as though it fits into your home and you have outweighed both pros and cons. There are a many features to this entire machine. It is worth using if you want to, but there are definitely things you need to consider before you invest your money in this machine.
