Overall Rating


Pros This model is a fully customizable machine with multiple adjustable features. These features include an adjustable console that can be moved up or down, a power adjustable stride that runs from 18” to 24”, and 20 levels of resistance to choose from. In addition, there are built-in customizable workout programs and a heart rate programs so you can tailor workout programs to your individual needs.
Cons While the E95S is built for comfort and convenience, it's a front-drive machine and it's fairly bulky (not at all compact). These features are only problematic if you prefer the feel of a rear-drive machine, and if you don't need a lot of space to workout in. Some other cons to note are the lack of advanced entertainment options and lack of a reading rack on the console.
Summary Overall, the pros outweigh the cons. The many adjustable options make this model fun and easy to use for almost all users, and the many customizable features make it easy to reach and meet individual fitness goals. The overall design of the E95S can pose a few issues for some people, but as a whole, it's a reliable machine with lots of comfort features to fit almost anyone's needs.

Sole E95s Elliptical Detailed Overview

The E95s Elliptical Trainer by Sole takes their award-winning, best-selling model, the E95, a step further with multiple adjustable features and high performance features. The E95s is one of the elite models in the elliptical trainer series by Sole, but it retails for a fairly affordable $2,199.99.

This front-drive trainer can withstand user weights of up to 400 pounds with its 38mm steel frame that is very durable. This model is not particularly compact, but it does come with transport wheels for easy mobility. There are multiple adjustable features to this model that include a power adjustable stride, multiple levels of resistance, and adjustable console. The power adjustable stride can go from 18” to 24”, and the resistance levels range from 0 to 20. The adjustable console moves in an up/down motion so it’s easy to adjust for varying heights.

The foot pedals are a comfortable 15″, designed with a 2 degree inward slope to reduce the stress on ankles and feet that can be common on other elliptical trainers. This is both a comfort and safety feature.

The console area is equipped with a large 9″ LCD display that gives you the basic workout readouts, along with 10 built-in workout programs that include 6 standard programs, 2 custom programs, and 2 heart rate programs. The E95S allows you to monitor your heart either wirelessly (chest strap is included) or using the pulse grip sensors built into the stationary handlebars. There are also multi-positional moving handlebars in addition to the stationary, which can also be used for stability when working the lower body. Other features of the console include one large water bottle holder, an accessories cup, a built-in cooling fan, built-in speakers, and an audio plug-in.

Sole offers a warranty for this model that covers the lifetime of the frame, 5 years on electronics, and 5 years on parts.

The Bottom Line

The E95 is a wildly popular model by Sole, and the E95S only steps up a notch with more features to love, and for only a few hundred dollars more too! The E95S is specifically designed to be a machine for multiple users, with tons of customizable options that many other elliptical trainers lack. With so many adjustable options and comfort features, it really is very easy to get in a good workout on this model no matter your height, size, or skill level. For just over $2,000, it is a bit of an investment, but with such an impressive warranty, it’s worth the money and we recommend the E95S as a highly reliable, easy to use elliptical trainer.
