The Sole F65 folding treadmill is a new model for 2011 that fits between the F63 and the F80 models in size, features, and price. The F65 has an upgraded 2.75 CHP motor, a longer 20” x 58” running surface, and an increased 350lb. weight capacity. The F65 also comes with a larger 7-inch LCD display.
The F65 has all the basic features in a compact, foldable form factor to satisfy walkers, joggers, and most runners. Six workout programs include both cardio training and fat-burning specific programs. The F65 has speeds up to 11mph and inclines up to 15%, more than enough to satisfy all but the most competitive runners.
The F65 has hand pulse grips to monitor your heart rate and includes a wireless chest strap. It does not have a heart-rate control program that automatically adjusts the speed and incline to maintain a target heart rate. Fitness experts recommend heart-rate training as the safest and fastest way to improve your fitness.
Like the F63, the F65 has a built-in MP3 compatible audio system with speakers so you can listen to your favorite music, podcasts and audiobooks while you exercise. It also has cooling fans and speed/incline controls on the hand rails.
The F65 has the same basic shock absorption as the F63, but lacks the more advanced Cushion Flex Whisper Deck that models starting with the F80 have. Like the F63, the F65 lacks the Easy Assist folding feature found on the F80 and F83.
The frame and motor have a lifetime warranty. Parts and electronics have a –year warranty, and labor is covered for 1 year.
The F65 has an MSRP of $1,999.99 but is on sale, with shipping included, for $1,199.99 direct from Sole.
