Stride and incline

The Sole E95S offers an ideal stride length adjustable from 18 inches to 24 inches. Because the stride is adjustable, it will fit users of different heights, which is an excellent advantage if you’re not the only one working out at home.

But that’s not all! Because the stride length is so adjustable, you’ll be able to target different muscle groups and enjoy a more effective cross-training workout.

As far as the incline goes, the Sole E95S comes with a fixed (non-adjustable) incline system simply because it’s not possible (as far as I know) to have an electronically adjustable incline and adjustable stride together.

If the incline adjustment is something you fancy, you should consider the Sole E95; it has 20 incline levels that can add to the challenge.

This elliptical machine offers one of the best stride lengths on the market. Stride length refers to how far the foot pedals can move front to back while using them. The standard for home ellipticals is a 20-inch stride, allowing most people to find the perfect fit in the machine.

However, the E95S goes above and beyond with a 24-inch stride length. Thus, enabling you to work out without suffering or discomfort. Overall, the stride length is exceptional on the E95S, so it’s such an excellent option for home gyms!

Console

The Sole E95S comes with a 10.1-inch TFT backlit LCD monitor that tracks speed, time, distance, resistance level, calories burned and pulse.

For heart rate monitoring, you have two options: the Sole E95S, a wireless chest strap, and contact pulse sensors on the handlebars. These will allow you to keep track of your heart rate zone if you like to do something.

The console also provides ten different preset workouts to enjoy. Out of these preset workouts, 6 are standard elliptical workout programs, two use heart rate control, and two are fully customizable by the user. The ten preset workout programs will allow you to challenge yourself and redefine your limits regarding fitness.

You’ll also be happy to know this elliptical is Bluetooth-enabled, and you’ll be able to use the Sole Fitness App. It’s also compatible with fitness apps such as MyFitnessPal, Map My Fitness, Fitbit, iHealth, Record, and other open-source training apps.

You’ll also be able to track your progress thanks to the Bluetooth connectivity, and you’ll be able to use your favorite fitness app to do so, which is excellent!

The E95S is also packed with Bluetooth audio speakers to enjoy your music and other entertainment. There’s also an audio plug-in, a USB charging port for your phone, one large water bottle holder, an accessories cup, and a built-in cooling fan.

Assembly and Maintenance

When it comes to assembly, putting this elliptical together is not difficult. Sole Fitness provides a complete assembly manual. It takes a couple of hours to assemble the E95S. They provide images of the hardware you’ll use for each step; they do this for all the steps before starting. It would be better to provide the pictures for each step and a continuous sequence for you to follow.

However, if you don’t have an issue paying attention to detail, you will be able to assemble your E95S without too much trouble. It would be better to have an extra pair of hands because this is a large and heavy machine and many parts are involved.

As for tools, you’ll need a couple of wrenches, a screwdriver, and an Allen wrench, which are not difficult to find if you don’t already have them at hand. If you don’t want to do this yourself, you can pay a professional to assemble the machine.

Maintenance doesn’t require much. You’ll need to wipe down the machine after each use and pay particular attention to the tracks that the pedals roll on. You’ll want to keep them clean so that the machine runs smooth and quiet. Also, inspect for loose nuts and bolts or damaged parts and replace or retighten.
