  • Heavy Duty Flywheel — A heavy flywheel allows for a comfortable and fluid elliptical motion. You’ll notice when you start the motion on the Sole E95S it takes an effort to get moving. And when you stop the motion it gradually stops.  This is how you want the elliptical motion to perform.
  • Stable Dual Wheel Design — Sole machines have two concave wheels moving along a track for a much more solid motion that most competition models.
  • 18-24″ elliptical stride —  This is one place that the E95S excels over the Sole E95.  Its wider range of stride length allows for a smooth elliptical motion more in line with those top priced machines.
  • Elongated Handlebars —  The handlebars on this machine allow you to grip with various positions.  This lets you target different upper body muscles.
  • Includes Heart Rate Control — Many people love heart rate control because it lets you determine your level of exertion. The Sole E95S comes with pulse grips and is chest strap compatible.

Fitness Source Sole E95S Elliptical Review

Once again, this is probably one of the most durable elliptical trainers available for residential use.  There are other commercial grade brands for residential use like Precor or LifeFitness, but plan on taking out a second mortgage to buy one. With the Sole E95S you get exceptional quality at a value price.

Also note that Sole has an excellent reputation for standing behind their products is also important to consider. We are not aware of any issues with their customer service, which is not something we can say about all of the leading brands out there. The only downside to this machine is its size.  If you have the room to accommodate its 84″ length, then you will be good to go!

    I am I te rested in the E95s, yet I am 5’4″ and want to make sure it is appropriate for my height. Also, is assembly required? If so, how challenging is it. Lastly, how much power does this equipment utilize?


    1. administrator

      Hi Kelia,
      Nice to meet you. The Sole E95S should be okay for your height as it features an adjustable stride length from 18 inches up to 24 inches. As to assembly, it is minimal and not difficult. Regarding power, it will plug in to a normal home electrical socket. Good luck!

    Hi –
    Wondering about head clearance for the E95S … my basement ceiling is about 85″ and I’m about 71″. Would this work without grazing my head on the stucco?
    I note that the E95S lacks a pretty common feature – adjustable incline. Never having owned an elliptical, I don’t know how much that matters. What’s your take? Maybe incline is something I can’t use in my basement, anyway.
    Thanks – Dave

      Hi Dave,
      We generally recommend you add 18″ to your overall height to determine ceiling height requirement.

      Hi Aristides,
      Yes, Sole offers a “Turnkey” option cost of $239 currently on their website. When you add the E95S to your shopping cart and go for check out, that’s where the option of delivery/set up is available.


    1. Site Admin

      Hi Deb, the stride has a range of 18-24″ so it should work for both you and your husband. You will likely find the 18″ stride more comfortable, while he is more comfortable near the 22″-24″ range.


  3. Tom

    Looking at a model comparison chart it says that the E95S does not have power-adjusted incline. This seems to be the only model that doesn’t have it. Is this a mistake in the chart? Does E95S have power-adjusted incline?


    1. Site Admin

      Hi Tom! No the Sole E95S doesn’t have power adjusted incline like some of the other ellipticals from Sole. It’s unique in that it has power-adjusted stride.


  4. Will Lane

    We are thinking about purchasing the E95S but curious how big an IPad would fit in the holder. I know it says tablet holder and cell just curious size??



  5. Joseph Heller

    Sole has stopped delivery to the door due to COVID. Any idea when that will be changed back to their various delivery options?


  6. Leslie Smith

    Does the E95S have cushioned foot pedals? Also, I am 5′ 6″ and would like more of a running motion on an elliptical. Is a 20″ stride enough for me or do I need a machine with the capability of a 24″ stride?


    1. Site Admin

      Hi Leslie. They aren’t cushioned on the E95S, but they do advertise that they are physical-therapist designed for comfort. Most users under 6″ report that a 20″ stride is comfortable for them – but it is really personal preference. Have you ever tried an elliptical?


  7. Dawn

    I’m debating between the e95s and e98. I’m 5′ but am all legs and an average stride length. I am VERY hard on equipment (1-2/hr daily). It appears that the e98 has incline option and e95s has none, but variable stride. Are there other pros & cons to the differences between the two? Dawn


    1. Site Admin

      Hi Dawn! Sole is a great brand if you are tough on equipment. They are known for the durability of their equipment! You are right, the E95S does not have an incline option and the E98 does. The E95S has the variable stride option also, so you would be able to choose a length that’s most comfortable for you. Other than that, they are very similar machines.
