Which Treadmill is Best for You?
Want to compare the Sole F80 vs Nordictrack 1750? These are two of the most popular mid-range treadmills on the market today.
They both come in around $1499 and have both pulled in several “Best Buy” ratings over the years. This post will show you the main differences between these two treadmills to help you choose the best option for you.
Sole F80 Vs Nordictrack 1750:
The 1750 edges out the Sole F80 here slightly with a 3.8 HP motor vs a 3.5 HP motor.
Both treadmills give you a extra long belts at 22 x 60 inches. Both treadmills also fold up.
This depends on your preference. Sole has the highly rated CushionFlex cushioning that has been proven to reduce impact on your joints by up to 40%.
The Nordictrack 1750 uses RunnersFlex cushioning which is also very good. But with the 1750, you can adjust the cushioning level.
So if you want a firmer, more road-like feel, you can turn the cushioning down. And if you want more protection, you can turn the cushioning up.
Both the Sole F80 and the Nordictrack 1750 give you up to 15% incline.
But the Nordictrack 1750 gives you 3% decline as well – which is a great way to add some crosstraining to your workout.
The Nordictrack 1750 really outshines the Sole F80 when it comes to the console. The Sole F80 does have a large backlit console showing all of your stats. But it’s only dual color:
The 1750 has a full-color console with built-in, touch-screen web browser. So you can surf the net as you walk while watching your exercise stats in the console window as well:
The Nordictrack 1750 has a built-in tablet holder above the console that is not found on the Sole F80. You can watch your favorite movies, or shows while you walk with this option.
The Nordictrack 1750 also comes with the iFit LIVE option that you don’t get with the Sole F80. With iFit, you can download endless new workouts, map out new trails to run with Goooglemaps and even watch real landmarks pass you by on the console screen.
Built In Workouts
The Sole F80 comes with 6 built-in workouts. The Nordictrack 1750 comes with 38 workouts (plus the iFit LIVE workouts).
Both treadmills come with hand grip sensors and are wireless chest strap compatible. But you get the wireless chest strap included with the 1750 – you don’t get it with the F80.
The Sole F80 and the Nordictrack 1750 are both strong treadmills and most people will be very happy with either one.
However the new 2015 Nordictrack 1750 seems to edge out the F80 in terms of motor, workout options, console features and the addition of iFit LIVE.
