The 19lb flywheel and a high gear ratio contribute to a very smooth, quiet elliptical motion with a 20 inch stride length, plenty long for any height.
The Sole E25 (20011) elliptical trainer also uses 4 rear rollers which makes the trainer more stable.
The foot pedals slope slightly inward to mimic the natural position of the foot, which in turn reduces stress to the knees, ankles and feet.
To add intensity to a workout, the Sole E25 (2011) can incline up to 30 pct without interrupting the workout. In addition to making the workout harder, different levels of incline also target different muscle groups.
As expected, there are also upper body handlebars for even more intensity. In addition to the contact grips, the Sole E25 elliptical trainer also includes a chest strap for monitoring heart rate.
The console and display on the Sole E25 (20011) elliptical trainer is the area of greatest change from the earlier model.
The display is a blue, backlit LCD which is easy to read and offers 16 different levels of resistance and a choice of 10 different training programs.
The Sole E25 (2011) includes MP3/Ipod docking station with speakers, cooling fan and water bottle holder.
Warranty on the Sole E25 (2011) is excellent, especially for an elliptical trainer selling for under $1000, lifetime on the frame, 3 years on parts and electronics and 1 year on in home service.
When you buy directly from Sole, they include free shipping and a 30 day guarantee.
In this price range, the Sole E25 (2011) is as good as anything on the market and better than many elliptical trainers costing a lot more.
