Cushion Flex Decks
Sole Treadmills is excited to offer Cushion Flex Decks, our low impact
joint friendly deck design. The Cushion Flex system offers stability
for the user while providing minimal stress to hips, knees ankles and
spine. The Cushion Flex system was originated back in 1992 and was recognized
by a leading university as the industry's best, providing a .365 lower
impact than walking or running on asphalt. Sole does this without compromising
any of the stable, safe feel of the treadmill. This type of technology
makes all the difference in treadmill training.
The Cushion Flex suspension system greatly reduces impact to feet, ankles,
knees, hips and spine. This reduction in impact is an outstanding benefit
to users with running and walking related injuries and has proven highly
effective in therapeutic applications. Sole's all-steel welded frame
design and Cushion Flex suspensions system provide the softest, safest
and most stable running surface available. Individuals of all ages who
are serious about fitness will appreciate the advantage offered by Sole's
Cushion Flex treadmills. Cushion Flex is a controlled low impact design
with the deck, frame and incline system all working together.
Folding Deck Design Easy Assist
Sole Fitness if proud to offer the best folding treadmill design on
the market. Our design features a patented all gear rack & pinion
system with the Safety Lock Deck design that locks the deck into place
when the treadmill is in the upright position. Our new 2009 folding
treadmills also come with our Easy Assist Folding Deck Design, this
unique feature allows you to release the deck, step back and the deck
will unfold itself effortlessly while you watch. The Easy Assist Folding
deck design is unique to Sole and makes unfolding your treadmill all
Double Horseshoe Folding Frame
The double horseshoe frame design came about as a result of needing
a very stable frame for our hotels. Hilton needed a 215 lb. treadmill
to be as mobile as a room service cart, while still putting a marathoner
to the test. The result is a folding frame that is more stable than
most non-folding frames. It also allows the user to move the treadmill
with ease. With the deck in the upright and locked position these treadmills
are as mobile and stable as a moving dolly.
Sole is proud to offer integrated message boards on most of our 2009
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 though 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.
Programmable Heart Rate Controlled Workout
Most Sole treadmills come complete with Heart Rate controlled workout
options to individualize the workout specifically to your needs. This
option shows the persons heart rate on the console and the treadmill
will adjust incline to keep the heart rate at a determined level. Professional
athletes have long known the aerobic benefits of training at a specific
heart rate; Sole gives this same option to everyone. Sole treadmills
come complete with the heart rate electronics in the console, and a
chest strap for the user. The wireless control is 99.9% accurate, as
good as an electrocardiogram.
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.
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 2.75" 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.
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.
In Room Fitness
Sole pioneered the concept of In Room Fitness by placing high end treadmills
in individual guest rooms at some of the best Hotels in the world. The
Sole F80 is available in Hilton Hotels, Omni Hotels and Kimpton Group
hotels in hundreds of locations throughout the US. This has created
huge awareness of our brand and made Sole Treadmills synonymous with
the most widely recognized hotel chains.
What makes the Whisper Deck so special, we offer a Lifetime Warranty
on all of our Whisper Decks. It is simple; we go the extra mile and
build a deck that is superior to any other on the market. Most decks
have a Phenolic coating to make them smooth, quiet and durable. Whisper
decks have this same type of technology in the design but through our
proprietary engineering we make them quieter, smoother and so durable
we offer a Lifetime Warranty on our Whisper Decks. No need to flip our
decks, if you wear it our, we will replace it f or free. (You won't
wear it out)
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.
