The Sole F65 Treadmill Review
Here we go with the Sole! One of my favorite treadmill brands out there. Sole has some of the best treadmills, and is one of the top selling treadmill dealers. They are most recognized for their amazing customer service.
The F65 Model is a brand new middle model for 2011. The motor jumps up to a 2.75 CHP. With more power like this, the motor will remain at lower RPMs and will be quieter and last much longer without problems than a smaller motor would. The belt is a full 20″ width and a 58″ length with 2 ply thickness, the rollers are a full 2 1/2″ which help the belt move more smoothly and easily.
The incline goes up to 15% and the speed reaches 12MPH. The Deck can hold up to 350 lbs just fine. If a 300lb runner runs for a long time at max speed and max incline, it may take quite a toll on the motor, and you may feel it waning a little. But in most cases everything should hold up just fine. The components are built with quality and strength to give the treadmills a strong solid feel.
Here’s a list of the specs:
- 2.75 CHP Motor
- 350lbs Weight Limit
- 12 MPH Max speed
- 15% Max Incline
- 20″x58″ deck
- Heart rate grips & Wireless Chest strap
- 6 preprogrammed workouts
- MP3/Ipod port
- Built-in speakers
- Cooling Fans
The console has a blue display screen and displays speed, incline, time, distance, calories, pulse, and pace at all times. It also has a small single LCD window for messages. The fold up design works well, and is easy to fold.
That’s about it. The warranty last for life on the motor and frame, 3 years on parts and electronics, and 1 year on labor. Labor is in-home service. With that and the excellent customer service of Sole you should be well taken care of if anything were to happen.
