A comparison of the differences between the Sole Fitness E35 and E95 elliptical machines.

What's the Difference Between the Sole E35 and E95 Cross Trainers?

As you can see from the comparison table on the right, the E35 and E95 are pretty much exactly the same apart from only a few minor differences.

For instance, they have the same frontal drive system that allows for both forwards and reverse action whilst keeping the workout operation to whisper quiet levels. You will also see the pedals are adjustable in terms of stride length and are angled on a two degree basis (moreover they have been designed to be purposefully oversized in order to offer you more support and stability, causing less fatigue for when you're working out).

Cross Trainer Set Up

They also both offer the same levels of resistance on 20 separate increments based on an magnetic ECB system that ensures the entire operation is nice and smooth. Likewise, the power incline adjustment can be made up to a 30 degree angle (which is suggested for those who are quite joint damage conscious). Also, as you would expect from a quality cross trainer, everything is adjustable, the handlebars, the pedals and so on.

Fitness Programs

Both cross trainers offer you 10 specific fitness programs in total, 6 specified cardio programs, two heart rate zone programs and finally two customisable settings as well. To measure your heart rate, you are provided with a wireless chest strap as well as ECG grips that are placed on the stationary & moving handlebars.

They also share a lot of the add on features as well such as a surround sound system with built in speakers that you can connect to via your iPod and are also placed on casters so you can move the cross trainer around. They are built from 38 mm steel designed with super stability at mind, as with all Sole fitness machinery, they are built like tanks (e.g. see the Sole F80 Versus F85, their treadmills are just the same).

Warranty Coverage

To prove that fact, they offer you super extensive warranty programs -- both the E35 and E95 come with a lifetime coverage on the frame, five years on electrical components and two years for labor costs.

So Where Do They Actually differ?

Well mainly in just three aspects (apart from that they are pretty much exactly the same): the Sole E95 simply can hold a slightly heavier weight capacity, has a larger flywheel fitted (to ensure more stability) and comes with a larger 9 inch LCD screen than the E35. That's it.

Which Elliptical Trainer Should You Buy the Sole E35 or E95?

Which Sole Elliptical Trainer Machine to Get?

One difference we haven't mentioned and thats price, you can see the E95 is $400 more expensive than the E35. So this tells me you are definitely better off going with the Sole E35, as although the E95 is better suited to a larger user, the actual difference between them from an objective view point demonstrates the E35 offers loads more bang for its buck. But which cross trainer will you buy and why?
