Sole E35 or Sole E95?
~~Side-By-Side Elliptical Comparison Review~~
Stride Length: In this first category, the Sole E35 and Sole E95 are tied with a stride length of 20” which is within the average of what most models have today.
Resistance Levels: When it comes to the resistance levels, the Sole E95 offers 20 while the losing Sole E35 offers 16. Having many levels of resistance adds to the intensity of any workout.
Max Ramp: In this category, the Sole E95 wins with its 40° incline ramp feature while the Sole E35 has 30°.
Built In Programs: In terms of built-in programs, the Sole E35 and the Sole E95 are tied with 10. There are many elliptical machines that offer more programs but having 10 are adequate enough to get you to achieve your fitness goals.
Notable Features: When it comes to the bells and whistles category, the Sole E95 dominates as it offers so many features. Just like the E95, the Sole E35 also has cooling fans, wireless chest strap and built-in sound system but it can’t match what it has to offer such as improved foot pedals that can be adjusted, a heavier flywheel for a smoother ride, molded handgrips with controls and it has a large console display.
Parts Warranty: When it comes to the parts warranty, the two models are tied with 5 years which is above the average or 2 to 4 years for ellipticals that belong in the $1000 to $1500 price range.
Labor Warranty: In this category, the two are tied yet again as both offer 2 years of labor warranty. You should take advantage of this free coverage as costs can get pretty expensive these days.
Machine Weight: The Sole E95 wins the machine weight category as it weighs at 215 lbs as opposed to the Sole E35’s 200-lb weight. Remember that a heavier machine means that it is sturdier.
Machine User Weight Capacity: When it comes to the maximum user weight, the Sole E95 beats its counterpart. It can accommodate users who weigh up to 400 lbs while the Sole E35 can accommodate only those who weigh up to 375 lbs. However, for safety purposes, there should only be a 100-lb difference between the actual machine weight and the max user weight capacity.
Money Back Guarantee: Both machines are tied in the money back guarantee category as they both offer 30 days in which you can return the product if you are unhappy with its performance.
Conclusion: At the time of the comparison review, there’s a $200 price difference between the two models with the Sole E95 being the more expensive of the two. It offers more features as it is the improved version of the Sole E35.
Although both machines are great choices, you should pay for the extra $200 if you are willing to spend more than $1000 for an elliptical machine. The Sole E95 has everything that you could ever want in an elliptical and it is actually the 2nd among models that belong in the $1000 to $1500 price range although the Sole E35 is at 7th place. So either way, you are in safe hands with these two machines.
