Sole Treadmill for Low Joint Impact

Published Date: April 15th, 2013

When it comes to working out on a treadmill, one of the biggest concerns that many runners express is the joint impact. After all, it is no secret that running on hard surfaces over a period of time can cause undue stress on the body and its joints. For those who already have joint problems, this can be particularly problematic and can serve as the greatest obstacle between themselves and a healthy lifestyle. Therefore, when purchasing a treadmill, it is important to consider the technology that has been put in place to help prevent damage to the joints. Below you can decide which model is the best Sole treadmill for low joint impact.

No matter which Sole treadmill you purchase, you can take comfort in knowing that steps have been taken to help minimize joint impact. Even the Sole F63 treadmill, which is the most basic model the company has to offer, features a 33 x 75 phenolic deck with shock absorption. With a 2.5 HP continuous duty motor capable of achieving 1 to 10 mph, the F63 is geared more toward those who plan to use their treadmill to walk or for casual jogging and running. The F65, which offers a 2.75 motor capable of reaching speeds from 0.5 to 11 mph, also features a phenolic deck with shock absorption, though the deck is slightly larger at 33 x 78.

While the F60-series offers a great deal of protection against joint impact, the F80-series takes it a step further. Boasting the patented Sole Cushion Flex Whisper Deck technology, these treadmills reduce impact by up to 40 percent. The unique deck also helps to reduce noise while putting less strain on the motor. Treadmills in this series offer 3.0, 3.25 and 3.5 motors capable of achieving speeds ranging from 0.5 to 12 mph.

If you want the very best that Sole has to offer, you will need to set your sites on the S70-series treadmills. Not only do these treadmill boast a 30 x 80 deck, but they also feature the Cushion Flex Shock Absorption Whisper Deck technology. While the S73 offers a 3.0 HP motor, the S77 steps it up to a 3.5 HP motor. Like the F80-series treadmills, both are capable of achieving speeds ranging from 0.5 to 12 mph and are built to accommodate users weighing up to 350 to 400 pounds. With a 20” x 60” running surface, both also provide you with plenty of space to achieve a full stride and enjoy the most comfortable workout possible.
