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.
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%. The reversible deck is the same type used in Commercial grade models
and is wax lubricated, which means less work on the motor during use.
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 and heights.
Large Light Commercial Display Screen - The SOLE
LCD console display makes work outs easier and more effective. A vibrant
blue screen with 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 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.
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
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 3" 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
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
