Hi. I am back to cover treadmills and today we will take a look at the Sole F63 Treadmill model. This is an economy treadmill as it is priced at under USD 1000. In this price range however, it is one of the best treadmills available today. First, let us go through the Sole F63 Treadmill’s particulars:
Drive Motor : 2.5 HP Continuous Duty
Deck : Phenolic. Folding
Belt (Usage Area) : 20” (W) x 55” (L)
Speed Range : 1 – 10 mph
Incline Range : 0 -15%
User Load Cap : 325 lbs
Workout Options : 6 Preset, 2 User-defined,
Heart Rate Monitor : Hand Pulse Grip, Wireless, Chest Strap
Display : Blue LCD
The Sole F63 Treadmill comes with the feature of built-in speakers for iPod/MP3, cooling fans and a lifetime warranty of on motor and frame and 3 years on its deck, electronics, belt and rollers. It covers labour for a year.
There is one unique feature in the Sole F63 that I particularly like and that is the Speed and Incline controls are on the armrests. I have found this feature in other models as well of Sole. So mid-stride, you could touch the button of the armrest and change the speed or incline without actually having to reach for the Console.
Typical of Sole machines, the F63 has a sturdy built and resonates stability. The only thing I think they could do a bit better on would be to increase cushioning. Though the shock absorption is almost good, but the higher versions Sole F80 etc have great cushioning technology (Cushion Flex), but then they come at several more 100s of dollars.
MY RATING OF THE SOLE F63 TREADMILL – 4 stars out of 5
