Sole F65 Treadmill Reviews & Ratings
Web Price: $1,999.99 | Current Price: $1,199.99
If you like the Sole F63, you’ll love the new F65 and its upgrades. This model has a more powerful motor, a higher max speed, and inclines up to 15%. The F65 is one of the best buys on the market, and has a great warranty for its low price.
“There are really no down-sides or drawbacks to this treadmill. You get what you see, a reliable treadmill, for a reasonable price.” -TreadmillSensei.com
“The key to staying motivated when using a treadmill and achieving your fitness goals is having a variety of preset programs. The Sole F65 scores here with six preset programs including cardio training and fat burning specific programs. In addition to these there are also two user defined programs.” -Treadmill Advisor
“Here is my take on the first new treadmill from Sole in several years. For $300 more you are only getting 3″ more treadbelt length and an addition 0.5″ horsepower. I might suggest you save the $300 and settle for the slightly smaller Sole E63, or you spend $200 more and get the 2011 Sole F80 treadmill.” -Fred Waters
“This model kind of gets lost in the shuffle. With the Icon units at this same price point, this one simply doesn’t make sense.” -Treadmill Doctor
Amazon has some great customer reviews regarding the Sole F65. Read them here.
“A side-benefit (unexpected or not) of the F65’s portability is to compensate for drift: After a forty-minute session I noticed the back of the treadmill had fishtailed about 10-15 degrees from its starting position on my concrete basement floor. How much of this can be blamed on the imperfect leveling of the floor versus my favoring one leg over the other, I don’t know. It’s a minor annoyance I’ve had with other pieces of equipment but fortunately, the F65 is a breeze to reposition back where I want it.”
“I have a 6 month old Sole F63 tradmill. Been nothing but trouble. Have not been able to use it once without an error. Customer service doesnt return phone calls. And if you get them on the phone they are no help.”
“My wife and I use this machine casually. As a more mid-level model, it is probably not for the high energy runner. We each run about 30 minutes per day on this with no problems. We like the programs (although it would be nice if you could save the changes).”
“I wanted an affordable treadmill that I could run on. I am 5’7″ tall and this treadmill is plenty big to run on. I am impressed with all the treadmills features. The treadmill is very solid and I am happy with my purchase.”
“The treadmill set up was straight forward, it took about 45 minutes. The treadmill is so sturdy, whether running or walking with the incline at the highest percent it does not wobble or shake. I love the features, its great to be able to hit a number button for the speed and incline changes instead of constantly hitting the up or down buttons.”
The Sole F65 is a relatively new product from Sole and it seems to be growing in popularity. It is important to research the features and specifications on this treadmill, because there are mixed reviews from experts and customers. Overall, the Sole F65 seems to be a decent treadmill for its price range. It has received Best Buy awards and it is an upgrade from the Sole F63, and it is only about $150 dollars more. This treadmill offers a decent tread belt size and diverse workout apps that will keep the user entertained. It may not support users who want to sprint or train for marathons on their machine, because of the smaller motor HP.
