Sole F80 Vs F85 Treadmill

March 24, 2015

Which is Best For You?


Two of Sole’s most popular folding treadmills are the F80 and the F85. The Sole F80 comes in around $1499 and the Sole F85 is about $300 – $500 more depending on where you buy it.



This leaves many buyers wondering – is the F85 worth the extra money? How exactly are they different?

This can be a challenge since many of the main differences are found “underneath the hood” so to speak. And it can be hard for most buyers to compare them on the surface.

With that in mind, here’s what you need to know about the Sole F80 vs F85 treadmills:

Sole F80 vs F85 – Main Differences:



The F85 comes with a stronger motor – 4.0 HP vs 3.5 HP on the F80 model. What does this mean to you? It means that the F85 can handle more strenuous and longer workouts without straining to keep up with you.



The deck on the F85 is reinforced  – so again, it’s built to take more of a beating. This also helps to give it a higher user weight capacity than the F80.

While both consoles are fairly similar, the F85 console is slightly larger – so it’s a bit easier to read your workout stats.

So those are the main differences between the Sole F80 vs F85. Basically the F85 is built to be tougher and handle long running workouts better (i.e. it will last longer under constant, strenuous use).


So Which is Best for You?


It really depends on whether you’re planning on heavy use of your treadmill. This includes things like your weight, your average workout time and frequency, how many other users are in your home and what kind of workout you’re doing (running vs walking).

If you’re planning on heavy use of your treadmill then the F85 will stand up better over the long run. If you’re just planning on medium use, then you can probably save a bit and go with the F80 treadmill.
