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 with power incline. 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 22″ x 60″ area for running, jogging or walking.

Best of 2021 AwardSmart-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 375 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).
