Sole E25 or Sole E35?
~~Side-By-Side Elliptical Comparison Review~~
Stride Length: In This first category, the two are tied as they both have a fixed stride length of 20”.
Resistance Levels: When it comes to resistance levels, the two models are tied with 16. Having different resistance levels can add to the intensity of your workouts.
Max Ramp: It is yet another tie between the two models as they both offer a 30° incline feature which definitely adds to the intensity of your workouts.
Built In Programs: In terms of built-in programs, the Sole E35 wins over the Sole E25 with a 10 to 7 advantage which can be sufficient enough for many users.
Notable Features: In the bells and whistles category, the Sole E35 beats the Sole E25. While both models have a lot of similarities, the E35 has an additional wireless heart rate chest strap monitor which is considered to be more reliable in getting your heart rate feedback. With metallic handgrips, you don’t need to break your upper body workout pace just to have your heart rate read.
But aside from this difference, the two models have the same bells and whistles.
Parts Warranty: When it comes to the parts warranty, the Sole E35 wins as it offers 5 years as opposed to the Sole E25’s 3 years.
Labor Warranty: In terms of labor warranty, the Sole E35 beats the Sole E25 with its 2-year offer. The lattes only offers a year.
Machine Weight: Machine weight is important because it has been said that the heavier the machine is, the sturdier it is. In this case, the E35 weighs at 200 lbs while the E25 only weighs at 189 lbs.
Machine User Weight Capacity: In this category, the Sole E35 beats the Sole E25. The former can accommodate users who weigh up to 375 lbs while the latter can only accommodate 325-lb users.
Money Back Guarantee: When it comes to the money back guarantee, the two are tied with 30 days. This means that you can easily return the product if you are not happy with its performance.
Conclusion: At the time of the comparison review, there’s a $345 price difference between the two. The question is if the additional expense is worth it?
You get 3 more programs, a $60-value wireless chest strap, a parts warranty of 5 years and 2 years on labor with the E35. It also includes an 11-lb edge against its counterpart. When it comes to the features, it may not have too much difference but it’s the warranty that justifies the price.
However, the E25 is also a good option as it is almost similar to the E35. It saves you the additional $345 too.
