F85 Treadmill Key Specs:


The F85 is the top-of-the-line machine in the Sole's folding treadmill series. Widely considered as the best folding treadmill on the market, in most of online reviews it gains a 5-star rating, easily. Sale priced at just under $2,000, it is not the cheapest treadmill you can buy, but not the most expensive, either. Comparing the F85 with compete models by other brands, you'll see that it offers an unbeatable value in its price class. It is foldable, solid and designed for long-term use.

Sole F85 Treadmill Review

It is not so common case that a treadmill engineered on a folding frame can handle users weighing up to 400lbs (180kg). It must have a sturdy, welded steel, not bolted, reinforced frame, which is exactly found in this machine. Moreover, the F85 features epoxy powder coated paint, baked to appliance-finish durability that protects the all-steel construction. Thus it is indestructible and comes with a lifetime warranty.

The other important part that is covered with a lifetime warranty is the F85's motor. It is an impressive 4.0 HP Continuous Duty motor with output and performance you can't find in any treadmill at this price (even below $4000). It runs the large rollers (one of the largest track rollers in the industry, measuring 2.75 inches in diameter) which move the commercial-sized, double woven 2-ply belts (with four layers) providing a smooth static free surface to glide over the deck. The rollers make for a larger contact surface against the belt and longer roller and belt life. The motor easily accelerates the belt to the maximum speed of 12mph and raises the deck to 15 incline levels to support trainees focus on different muscles in the lower body.
