This is the best quality machine here, only marked down because it's also the most expensive, but if you're happy to pay that bit extra, this is well worth it
The Sole Fitness E35 Elliptical Machine is the most feature rich of all the ellipticals reviewed, and would be the best if it were not for the slightly more expensive price tag.
This machine has been designed with tall people specifically in mind. It has a huge 20" (50cm) stride length, while the peddle height is only 14" (35cm) the lowest of all the machines meaning you'll only need ceiling clearance of your height plus 14".
It comes with all the features you'd expect, such as mp3 connection, storage of user settings 20 levels of resistance, 10 different workout programs water bottle holder and transport wheels.
The Sole Fitness E35 also has heart rate monitoring by both grip contact and wireless connection via a supplied chest strap.
This is by far the best elliptical if you're looking to really push yourself with the incline as it has the highest level incline of all machines reviewed, allowing you to go up to 30 degrees.
The product support provided by Sole is excellent, you get a lifetime frame warranty, 5 years parts and electronics plus 2 years labor. Sole have also put together some really useful assembly and troubleshooting videos.
An excellent elliptical machine let down only by it's higher price tag, but you do definitely get what you pay for with this machine, if you can stretch to the extra, it's well worth it.
