Sole S77 Overview

The Sole S77 Treadmill gives you the quality of a top-rated club gym treadmill in the comfort of your own home. With one of the most powerful motors on the market, backed by Sole’s lifetime warranty, as well as the largest deck that Sole has on offer, it’s a durable, comfortable treadmill suitable even for the most dedicated user. The S77 matches the best-selling F85 in almost every way, except for the folding capabilities, which make it less maneuverable. Like every Sole model, this treadmill is made with a high-quality steel frame.

Ergonomics

The S77 features the largest deck of any Sole product, with a 22” width to accommodate you at any level of running. Whether you’re opening up your stride, or simply prefer the feel of a longer and wider track, the S77 is hard to beat. With Sole’s Cushion Flex Whisper Deck reducing each step’s impact up to 40%, it’s the smoothest run you’ll ever experience. One of the only complaints about this product, though, is the short arms, which come down to a matter of preference. If you like long arms to border your run, the Sole S77 might not be the right choice for you.
  • Spacious 22" X 60" running surface (biggest of any Sole product)
  • 15 levels of incline
  • Textured belt

Motor

Featuring one of the most powerful motors on the market, the Sole S77 is a go-to tool for serious trainers and even commercial users. Backed by Sole’s lifetime warranty, both the steel frame and the heavy-duty motor are built to endure. The belt on the S77 is made from a double woven 2-ply belt with four layers. Two rubber layers lay on top of layers of nylon and PVC. Meaning this belt is particularly durable and also stretch resistant. If you’ve ever owned or used a treadmill at a gym that has an uneven, stretched out belt, you understand the annoyance of trying to get in a great run on a surface that slips under you. Thankfully, this belt holds up to countless runs.

Is it Right For You?

It’s easy for us to give the S77 positive reviews. After all, it competes well when put up against commercial treadmills, at a much lower cost. If track size and joint comfort are top priorities for you, this might be the treadmill you put on the list of your top options. It’s never easy to find treadmills with significant running surfaces without compromising something else on the machine. Our only complaints are this model's short armrests, non-foldable design, and fewer programs. 10 programs will be more than enough for the average runner, but if you especially need variety to keep yourself motivated on your runs, it might be worth seeking out a machine that offers a greater number of programs. Why do we love it? Its roomy track can easily accommodate runners who are both tall or weigh more. It’s updated tech makes it simple to connect to the devices you love and sometimes just don’t want to workout without. The S77’s well-constructed frame, Cushion Flex Whisper deck, and quiet motor make it an excellent choice for any at-home gym.
