Sole F65 Overview

The F65 is a newer introduction to Sole’s top-selling fitness line, and has quickly become one of their most popular models. With a few upgrades from the value-priced F63, this model features commercial-grade durability, along with the comfort and convenience that make it ideal for home use.

Ergonomics

The F65 is built for frequent use by serious runners. Safety features include an easy-access stop switch with a tethered cord, an incredibly low starting speed of 0.5 mph, and a sleek design that won’t get in the way of your running. Like all of Soles’ home models, the F65 has an easily foldable deck that doesn’t compromise on quality and construction.
  • 15 levels of incline
  • Foldable for convenience, locks into place 100% secured when upright
  • 22” X 60” deck allows for speed pacing and long strides
  • Cushion Flex Whisper Deck reduces impact of up to 40%.

High Quality Track

The Sole F65 track helps fight against runner’s fatigue. Poor running surfaces can cause various types of impact on the foot and joints. While cheaper treadmills may put more strain on the body, the F65 offers an effortless feel for the runner. A smooth surface allows the runner to focus on the task at hand. All this is thanks to a high quality, two-ply track built for durability. A thick track paired with 2.5” rollers promotes quiet operation, lightened demands on the motor, and lessened fatigue on the runner.

Cushioning to Promote Joint Health

Sole’s F65 boosts a roomy running surface that exceeds that of the average treadmill, and also showcases the CushionFlex Whisper Deck. This distinct cushioning makes cardio workouts significantly easier on the ankles, knees, and hips. Joint impact will be reduced up to 40% compared to running on pavement.

Display and Digital Features

The 7.5 inch LCD display shows at all times:
  • Distance
  • Time
  • Calories

MP3 and Bluetooth Compatible

It features incredible MP3 speakers built directly into the console. Listening to your music during exercise will never be easier. The F65 also has bluetooth compatibility, which makes transferring all of your fitness data to your favorite fitness apps that much easier. A weakness to note is the limited number of preset workout programs. Only 10 are included, which is less than most other treadmills at this price range. Unfortunately, users cannot upload their own workout programs to complement the standard features. Although this is may be a drawback for some, the excellent quality of the construction and heavy duty motor make the lack of digital features almost a non-issue.
  • 7.5 inch LCD backlit display
  • Bluetooth enabled
  • High-quality built-in speakers
  • 10 preset workout programs

Programs For Everyone

The programs may not be as robust in number, but there’s a workout option for whatever the cardio goal may be. With a manual mode, two user-designed programs, two heart rate controlled workouts, to five classic presets, including:
  • Hill Workout
  • Fat Burn
  • Cardio Workout
  • Strength Training
  • Interval Training

Motor

The biggest selling point of any Sole fitness treadmill is the heavy-duty motor. The powerful 3.25 horsepower engine is suitable for any cardio activity. The serious runner will appreciate a motor that is reliable throughout a workout. Even at top speeds, the motor stays quiet and contains features that help reduce vibrations, and increase efficiency. The F65’s motor comes with Sole’s lifetime warranty.
  • Powerful 3.25 high-torque horsepower motor
  • Speeds up to 12 mph
  • Safe for weights up to 350 lbs
  • 2.5" rollers for smoother operation
