Three Ways We Evaluate and Choose our Elliptical Best Buys:
1. Personally Trying the Different Models (Yup, this means we test the machines).
2. Visiting with Manufacturers & Maintenance Centers (Yes, we’ve been to the corporate headquarters).
3. Calling Customers that Have Made a Purchase (We’d Love to hear from you)!

Comfortable and fun exercise machine, the Sole E95S includes up to a 5 year warranty which speaks of the quality. Electro-magnetic resistance on the heavy duty spin wheel makes it one of the quietest and smoothest machines we tested when changing resistance levels. The E95S includes many safety features such as ergonomically designed foot pedals to prevent toe sleep. We have been on a number of machines in this price category and you normally would spend $3500-$4000 with competitors for this quality. Buy direct from Sole and receive a better value with more "bang for your buck". Read our full Review Here.
