About the Sole E25

The Sole E25 Elliptical Trainer is a bit of a dark horse among elliptical machines.

Sole themselves are not that well-known as a maker of ellipticals (although Sole treadmills are well thought of and have been a preferred supplier to major hotel chains for many years).

In fact, Sole make only a few elliptical models - the E25 elliptical machine is their entry level model and then you will only find the Sole E35 (also one of our best buy recommendations in its price range), the Sole E55, the Sole E75 and the Sole E95.

But where Sole lack the well-known brand name of other ellipticals or a confusing array of models from which to choose, they make up for in the superb quality, durability and value of their machines. And they show confidence in the build quality by providing a great warranty.

As for the E25, numerous elliptical trainer reviews show that the Sole E25 elliptical trainers are very well thought of both by those who repair ellipticals for a living and really get right into the insides of the machines and by those who decide to buy an E25 for their home gym.


For an elliptical machine around the $1000 mark, the E25 is head and shoulders above the crowd with a number of features which set it apart. With your E25 elliptical you'll find:-


Sole E25 ellipticals come with a lifetime warranty on the frame, three years on parts and one year labor warranty. All service is performed at your home. This is one of the most extensive warranties found at this price range and not to be beaten among the cheap elliptical trainers we have come across, many of which have only 90 days parts and labor. (We shake our collective fist at manufacturers who expect their ellipticals to last only 90 days!)

Any issues?

Of course no elliptical machine is perfect and for this money you can't have everything although you get an awful lot. The few things we have found in our extensive research are:-
