The Sole F63 folding treadmill improves upon the popular earlier version with a few upgrades for 2016 while keeping the durability and quiet performance that it's always been famous for.
For the new model year, Sole has tweaked some of its most popular treadmill models, including some improvements to one of its most popular models, the F63. This is a truly impressive machine that lists for $1899, but sells direct on the company website for less than $1000, including delivery. The delivery costs alone will save you anywhere from $200 to $300. The Sole F63 folding treadmill has many of the same features as older models with a few notable exceptions, including larger, 2.5" rollers to improve the life of the belt, slightly longer overall length in order to accommodate a 5" longer running surface, greater speed and Bluetooth capability.
The specs for the Sole F63 are:
Sometimes a company shouldn't mess with something that's already a success, but in this case, Sole seems to have improved on some already stellar specs. Runners are unanimous in their praise of the running surface, which is a full 5" longer on the Sole F63 folding treadmill for the new year.
The company has also improved the speed range, which can now top out at a full 12 miles per hour as opposed to earlier models that could only reach 10 mph. And of course, the most popular change is the motor. You're getting a 3.0 horsepower, commercial grade motor. Older versions typically had a 2.5 hp motor.
Another welcome change on the Sole F63 is Bluetooth technology that allows you to track your workout results on the Sole App or transfer your workout information to your favorite fitness apps. One of the complaints users have always had about Sole is their lack of tracking/technology...now they're starting to introduce features like Bluetooth to answer the complaints.
A few features haven't changed on the Sole F63 treadmill for 2016, which is a good thing. Why mess with success? Owner reviews continue to praise the quick speed and incline adjustment buttons that are located along the sides of the console so you can shift without breaking stride.
There simply isn't a better brand out there offering a top quality treadmill for less than $1000. Sole's industrial grade motors and welded steel frames can take an incredible beating and still outperform many models at a higher price point. The oversized rollers and all steel flywheels create virtually no vibration and give you whisper-soft performance so that you can exercise any time of day or night without worrying about the noise bothering the neighbors.
The Sole F63 folding treadmill is going to quickly establish itself in treadmill reviews as the ideal $1000 machine, and we couldn't agree more.
