Priced under $800, the Sole E20 elliptical trainer is the most affordable trainer under the Sole brand and time will tell if this will be reflected in the well established Sole reputation for quality elliptical trainers.
The Sole E20 weighs 15lbs less and with a maximum user weight of 325lbs, has 25 lbs less capacity than the E25 elliptical, the lowest priced trainer you can buy direct from Sole.
The stride length is power adjustable up to 20 inches, while the pedals are cushioned and angles slightly inward for optimal comfort.
The Sole E20 elliptical trainer gives you a choice of 10 different programs, a relatively low number, but consistent with Sole’s approach, while you can track heart rate both ways, contact grips or chest strap which you have to provide yourself.
Warranty on the trainer is excellent as you would expect, lifetime on the frame, 3 years on parts and 1 year on labor.
The Sole E20 gives you a little less than the Sole E25, but not by much. If you prefer buying direct from the manufacturer, go with the Sole E25 elliptical trainer, which also happens to be a Top Pick.
