**New for 2016** The Sole F80 Treadmill model provides commercial-grade fitness at home. The Sole brand of treadmills has been used in commercial sites, such as hotels (Hilton), which says something about its durability. The new F80 model provides all of the latest features along with a sturdy well made treadmill with exceptional professional and consumer reviews. Features include an upgraded 3.5 horsepower (hp) motor (continuous duty) , which can reach speeds up to 12 miles per hour (in increments of 0.5 mph). An all-steel zinc-coated balanced flywheel, creates a secure, quiet, vibration-free running/walking surface. The treadmill can incline between 0 (flat) to a 15 percent grade. You can easily store the Sole F80 as it folds up. The exclusive Easy Assist allows you to release the deck, step back, and watch the deck unfold itself. Running deck is a big 20″ x 60″ area for running, jogging or walking.

Sole F80 Treadmill Features: Other features include the Cushion Flex shock-absorption system (provides shock absorption and support to reduce the impact on your feet, ankles, knees and hips). Integrated Stereo Speakers sound system for listening to your iPod or MP3 player while you exercise. Pulse grip heart rate monitoring and wireless chest strap monitoring. Heart rate programs, and Workout Fans (keeps you cool during your workout). This model includes a new larger 9.0-inch LCD display includes windows for speed, incline, time, distance traveled, calories, pulse, and pace. You can use the six automatic programs, two customizable programs, or use the two heart rate target programs. SOLE’s folding treadmill frame design for the F80 originated from the demand of hotels for a treadmill that could be moved, yet still be stable and powerful. For 2016, Sole has added bluetooth capability and a Sole App for your smartphone or tablet.


Maximum User Weight Capacity: Up to 350 pounds.
Treadmill Warranty: Lifetime Warranty on the Frame, Motor, and Deck; Parts/electronics – 5 years; Labor – 2 years
Unfolded Dimensions: 80″ long x 35″ wide x 58″ tall (265 lbs.)


Smart-Review Commentary: The Sole F80 treadmill is one of our best top rated treadmills in this price range. It is built for commercial long-term use in hotels (including Hilton). Based on this and past F80 models, the reviews on both a professional and consumer level were outstanding. This model should fit most needs as its maximum user weight is 350 lbs. It is suitable for walking, running, and jogging. It is loaded with convenience features, and comfort features (cooling fans, stereo speakers, and armrest speed/incline controls). Since it folds up, it is ideal for areas where you can’t leave the treadmill open at all times. The F80 treadmill was upgraded from a 3.0 to a stronger 3.5 horsepower continuous duty motor which means it won’t be straining to keep up with you. (Straining motors burn out quicker). The maximum MPH has increased as well to 12 mph. For 2016, Sole has added bluetooth capability and a Sole App for your smartphone or tablet. This model has a very good warranty as well. The Sole Fitness F80 is a Smart-Review Top Pick for treadmills in 2016 and has received our BEST of 2016 award for treadmills under $1500.
