Product Description

Product Description

No need to join a club! The Sole® S77 treadmill offers you all the quality of a piece of gym equipment in the comfort of your own home. It boasts a 3.5 HP continuous duty motor, a 60" running surface and a double-woven 2-ply deck. The user-friendly console features a vibrant LED display that includes a message board for clear instruction and feedback, and there are even built-in speakers that allow you to hook up any MP3 player.

Offering the power of a club-quality treadmill but in the comfort of your own home, the Sole S77 non-folding treadmill is ideal for serious runners committed to winter training. All Sole treadmills are outfitted with powder-coated, all-steel welded frames and heavy-duty, stable inclines. Sole took the S77 to another level, however, by using an industrial-quality 3.5-horsepower continuous-duty motor and adding the largest deck that Sole offers--a 22-inch wide running surface that fits virtually any runner. The treadmill also includes an all-steel, zinc-coated balanced flywheel that's much heavier than most other brands, giving runners the fluid motion they're accustomed to at the gym. To accommodate runners with balky joints, Sole added its low-impact, whisper-quiet Cushion Flex system. The Cushion Flex system greatly reduces the impact to your feet, ankles, knees, hips, and spine, making it comfortable for frequent runners or for users with running- and walking-related injuries. In a recent study, researchers concluded that the Cushion Flex deck reduced impact up to 40 percent as compared to running on asphalt.



The S77's console includes a vibrant 9-inch LCD display and an integrated sound system.
The S77 makes it easy to track your workout progress via the vibrant 9-inch LCD display, which includes windows for speed, incline, time, distance traveled, calories, pulse, and pace. The console also sports a 1/4-mile track and a peak-and-valley graph for different programs, along with an integrated sound system for listening to your iPod or MP3 player (the system includes built-in speakers and a sound cord that plugs into your player's headphone jack). Perhaps the handiest feature is the integrated message board, which offers scrolling messages that walk you through the treadmill's features or the workout itself. The message board will also recap your entire routine after you're finished, so you can see your progress from workout to workout.

The S77 comes complete with two heart-rate-controlled workout options, so you can customize the workout specifically to your needs. Throughout your HR workout, the treadmill will display a heart rate zone graph on the console while adjusting the incline to keep you in your target zone (the treadmill includes a wireless chest strap that touts a 99.9 percent accuracy rating). The remainder of the time, you can challenge yourself with the six automatic programs or two customizable programs.

Other features include built-in cooling fans, armrest speed and incline controls, and a 10 amp circuit breaker. The S77 is a non-folding treadmill, making it a great choice for homes with dedicated fitness rooms.

I bought a 2011 S77 directly from Sole; I paid extra to have the box moved into my house and it arrived about 12 days later. Unless you have several people to help move it, paying extra for inside delivery is worth it because it is bulky and heavy. Once it's inside though, as long as it's right-side up and on the correct floor, you can wheel it into position and assemble it solo relatively easily.

Assembly was straightforward BUT there were two critical pieces missing (steel brackets that help secure the posts supporting the console) and one of the plastic pieces was malformed. To Sole's credit, when I called they FedEx'd the parts the same day (after initially saying they might be out-of-stock on the brackets--common problem?). However, you'd think the quality control would be a little better for something this expensive.

The treadmill itself is decent. I've only put around 15 miles on it so far, but it feels solid and the running area is big. As other reviewers have mentioned, it takes a long time to change speeds, which isn't so great for doing intervals. The console is intuitive enough and works; I don't think it's worth the extra money over a 2009-10 model, though.

I'll call it "good enough"--for the money you get a big solid running surface.

Oh, and one final warning: included with the treadmill was a brochure to buy an extended warranty from one of the top treadmill review sites on Google. So the rumors of Sole "buying" positive press on the internet would seem true.

The treadmill itself shipped fairly quickly from Sole. We received it in under 10 days. We set it up yesterday and read all the conditions upon which you might void those wonderful warranties they tell you all about. You think, "It must be good if they're guaranteeing for life." Be careful because there are lots of conditions. The absolute worst thing about this treadmill is the fact that it takes a VERY long time to change speeds. If you're tired and abruptly slow down, you're going to fling yourself off the back before the thing gets down to a manageable speed (almost did that this morning). After the first use it has a strange rub mark on the tread belt and it felt like it was rubbing somewhere, but not constantly. It's definitely not a health club treadmill. Also, though the motor is one of the biggest you can get, it feels like it is overly labored. I'll update after I investigate the rubbing and run on it more.

This is our second treadmill - 1sst was a Smooth that worked fine for 6 years.

Bought this directly from Sole. My first piece of advice - PAY to have this delivered to the exact spot you want it, and PAY to have it assembled. Sole's website says "Assembly is straightforward, 20-25 minutes." Um, NO. Try two hours, two people. And those plastic arm pieces someone else mentioned? They will drive you quite mad. The holes don't line up, so the pieces don't match up, either. We finally managed to attach them, but it's not possible to make them flush, so they look like the cheap junk that they are.

Directions are simply worthless. Tiny, poorly written. Parts aren't identified...you have to match them with the badly drawn illustrations - there's no "explosive" drawings that show the parts enlarged. And, there is no drawing of how it SHOULD look when complete. Perhaps more mechanical types will do this in a jiffy - but we thought the process was a nightmare.

Finally assembled, plugged in. Can't use it. There's a grinding, scraping noise that makes no sense. Since the deck is all assembled when the thing is delivered, it must be an issue with the deck and the belt. Since it's Friday night...it will be two days before we can even call someone at Sole and begin the laborious inquiries.

TRUST ME - PAY someone to assemble this.

Can't review the actual working of the treadmill, because it doesn't work.

Here's an example of the hilarious instructions: "Belt tension is not critical for most users. It is very important though for joggers and runners in order to provide a smooth, steady running surface." Um - who else besides runners and joggers - whatever a "jogger" is - would be using the machine?

UPDATE: Well, it's going back.

Verified Purchase
I bought this treadmill from Amazon about five months ago. I use it several times a week, and it is still in excellent shape. I pretty much just use it to walk and I don't use any of the fancy settings.

I would offer two warnings to potential buyers:

1) Don't try to assemble it yourself. It took a paid team of three home repair people 45 minutes to move and assemble this.

2) The factory setting is for it to beep every minute on the minute mark. This is really, really annoying. To turn it off, remove the key, put it in, then really really fast, push start, stop, and enter all at the same time. This will bring you into the maintenance menu and from here you can turn the sound off on the machine.

We purchased a Sole S77 treadmill despite some bad reviews out there because of consumer reports and some friends who were happy with older (10 year old) versions of sole treadmills.
We purchased it from Sole dealer directly. It worked for about one week - after that it broke: the speed would not go past 3 MPH and the stop button would not function at all (the only way to stop the belt was to pull safety key).
I promptly contacted Sole - didn't hear from them until a week later. They were sending a new console given the problem description, which would then need to be installed. The new console arrived, and it took a long time to schedule someone to come in and install it because Sole did not notify the repairman until late in the process. Once the new console was installed it became apparent that this was not the problem - treadmill still doesn't go past 3MPH, doesn't stop when stop button is pushed and moreover, now the incline function does not work (it was working previously). It has been over one month that the piece of junk stopped working, some new parts were ordered and we are still awaiting them, but I have low hope that it will be fixed.
The company has not contacted us directly - they just sent emails notifying us when a new part ships, and the repair person eventually calls us to come over and install it. You'd think that after they send a useless piece of junk they'd be calling to apologize...
I would give this product zero stars but I guess that's not an option, so I give it one.
We may have been unlucky in getting a particularly bad serial number but given the price of this equipment and the poor response from dealer I would not recommend this machine to anyone.
