Best Folding Treadmill – The Sole F80 Reviewed

The Buzz

Personal trainers have high regard for the Sole F80 for a number of reasons. One feature that is unusual is the speed and incline controls set into the arm rests, making it easier to maintain your pace and stride without having to reach for the console to make changes. It’s one of the best features that runners will appreciate. Professionals are also extremely impressed with the unique folding frame design – the stability wins kudos from every reviewer. You would never know this was a folding treadmill by walking or running on it.

What We Say

Sole F80 Treadmill Folded

We hate to be late to the game, because others have already chosen the Sole F80 as the best foldable treadmill, but we have to agree. Sole’s Cushion Flex Deck is even quieter than phenolic decks and is extremely comfortable without being over-cushioned. The 3.0 horsepower motor has a higher than normal torque, giving this treadmill real power. When you look at the warranty, it’s simply a no-brainer. The lifetime on motor, deck and frame is fantastic, and two full years of labor is almost unheard of. It’s simply the best folding treadmill at any price.
