Sole F80 Overview

The Sole F80 is a foldable treadmill with a high-quality commercial-grade motor and frame. Built with Sole’s trusted quality, the F80 is a more budget-conscious decision than the top-of-the-line F85 but carries most of the same features and benefits. If you’re looking for a great treadmill at a low price, the F80 is the perfect choice for you. What’s more, when you purchase one, it includes Sole’s lifetime warranty on the frame and motor, a 2-ply belt for better comfort and durability, and the runner-friendly Cushion Flex Whisper Deck, which reduces noise as well as impact.


Many hotels approached Sole to request a treadmill that fit their unique needs: A convenient, lightweight treadmill that can be easily transported and has the capabilities of a commercial treadmill. In other words, they asked for a high-quality, long-lasting treadmill that they could move easily, and Sole delivered. The Sole F80 is the solution to all of those problems. With its industrial frame, powerful motor, and Easy-Fold deck that locks securely and unfolds automatically, this treadmill is the go-to choice for many hotels and runners around the world.

Comfortable, Durable Track

In addition to being easy to use, it is comfortable as well. A hard running surface can be uncomfortable and even lead to injuries such as shin splints and stress fractures. This treadmill boasts a large running surface, a 2-ply belt, and Cushion Flex Whisper Deck that serve to reduce impact by up to 40% when compared to running on pavement. That is a huge (and comfortable) step forward in the advancement of treadmill technology.

Specialized Cushioning Technology

Sole’s F80 has a spacious running surface, but the real kicker is the CushionFlex Whisper Deck. This specialized cushioning technology makes cardio workouts a lot easier on your joints. The overall joint impact is going to be reduced by 40%, due to this trademarked cushioning tech.
