The Engineering team at SOLE is concerned with a basic
design and an emphasis on durable made treadmills. With the market expecting
a quality made folding product, a stable base and a quiet machine, SOLE
works to achieve and meet these consumer demands.
· Bluetooth Technology - Sole now allows
users the freedom to transfer workout data via Bluetooth, from their
Sole fitness equipment to their smart device. Users can download and
track their info on the Sole app for free, or have their fitness data
be transferred to any of the following fitness apps (Fitbit, Record,
Mapmyrun, Apple Health).
· Convenient Controls - Users want to have the freedom
of increasing speed and incline quickly, the display features quick
speed/incline buttons along the sides of the LCD making it extremely
convenient and easy to control and maintain your workout.
· Cushion Flex Whisper Deck - A unique design to any type
of treadmill on the market, this deck provides our users with a comfortable
and quiet workout as well as reducing impact of up to 40%.
· Precision Welded Frame - Accurate and precise welding
is important when designing a treadmill. Durability of a product begins
with a strong frame, capable of handling multiple users of various weights
· Large Light Commercial Display Screen - The SOLE display
makes work outs easier and more effective. Sole touts two different
displays depending on the SKU, a vibrant white back-lit screen or a
10.1" TFT LCD. Both offer large clean readouts provide users with
helpful information, such as Heart Rate, Speed, Pace, Calories burned
and many other useful bits of information
· Message Board - SOLE is proud to offer integrated message
boards on most of our models. What is the SOLE Message Board; it is
an alphanumeric text center that sends scrolling messages to the user
in an effort to guide them through all of the details of every workout.
Ever wonder how to set up the user profile workout, just push the user
profile button the message board will walk you through the rest. Think
of the message board as having someone standing next to you reading
from the owner's manual on what to do next in just about every function
of the treadmill. After years of seeing people get frustrated in the
gym and at home we came up with a better way to help you use the full
capabilities of our treadmills, and we made is very user friendly. The
message board will also recap your entire workout after you are finished,
so you can see your progress.
· High Torque Motors with Flywheels- All
SOLE treadmills feature the heaviest duty chassis and motors in their
class. Beginning with powder coated all-steel welded frames and heavy
duty stable inclines, we add industrial quality motors with large diameter,
all-steel zinc coated balanced flywheels for a vibration-free secure
running/walking surface. Why do we add a flywheel to our motors? Flywheels
cause the motor to run cooler with less amp draw and extend the life
off the motor. They also allow us to offer a start speed of .5mph of
1mph. SOLE also uses much heavier flywheels than its competitors which
give you the fluid motion you're accustomed to at the gym or on treadmill
costing thousands more.
· Rollers- When we chose the rollers for our treadmill
line we went with only the best and outfitted all of our treadmills
with the same high-end rollers that most people only offer on $5000
treadmills. We use large rollers with a sealed bearing design and copper
ground wires for each roller to reduce static. Larger rollers make for
a larger contact surface against the belt and longer roller and belt
life. This makes for smooth, quiet, static free motion that will stand
the test of time.
· Belts- We use double woven 2-ply belts
with four layers on almost all of our treadmills. Two rubber layers
over a middle PVC layer with a nylon backing that rolls over the deck
and rollers. The rubber provides the durability, the PVC stops the belt
from over-stretching and the nylon provides a smooth static free surface
to glide over the deck and rollers.
· Bullet proof frames All SOLE treadmills feature epoxy powder
coated paint, baked to appliance finish durability. This finish protects
the all-steel construction, along with welded steel, not bolted, our
frames are indestructible thus the lifetime warranty.
· www.TreadmillDoctor.com- There are several
companies on the internet that review Treadmills but none is more honest
or straight forward than the TreadmillDoctor.com. He tells it like it
is and pulls no punches on the quality; or lack thereof, of the treadmill.
The amount of traffic that he gets on his site has set him up as the
premier location for treadmill research. SOLE has had a relationship
with the Doctor for the past 7 years and he has high regard for our
treadmills and considers them a huge value in both quality and service.
The Treadmill Doctor has spoken and SOLE has passed with flying colors
