Sole TT8 Treadmill Review for 2022
Gym equipment for the home does not have to be uncomfortable. The Sole TT8 Treadmill proves this point with its large running surface. It has a couple of other features under its belt as well – no pun intended.
With a great mix of price to performance, the T88 from Sole is one of the best treadmills you can buy. This review will give you an in-depth review. We will touch on specifications, build quality, performance, and extra features.
Sole TT8 Treadmill Specifications
You get some very commendable specs with this model of the Sole TT8 treadmill. Here is a full detailed breakdown of the specifications.
Belt Dimensions: 60” x 22”
Speed: 0.1 MPH – 12 MPH
Incline Adjustment: Yes (0 – 15%)
Presets: Yes (6 presets)
Display: Yes (10.1” inch touchscreen)
One of the key selling points of this particular model is the fairly large running belt. Coming in at 22″ inches wide, it is fairly larger than most models out there on the market. This makes it significantly more comfortable to run as you have more room to stretch your legs.
Sole TT8 Treadmill Build Quality
Sole has been in the treadmill business for some time now. They have over 20 years of experience creating some of the most well-built and feature-packed treadmills in the industry.
They did not disappoint with their TT8 model either. In comparison to some cheaper made models of treadmills out there, this treadmill is refreshingly well built. We love how minimal the design of this one is. The construction is very sturdy and should last you for a long time.
If you are looking for something that folds, then you are out of luck. The sole TT8 does not fold. However, it is still a fairly lightweight machine. In our testing of the machine, we did not notice any creaks of bad manufacturing tolerances.
The 3.5HP motor performed admirably and the belt was very well built and comfortable to run on. The belt quality is one of the major selling points of this one as mentioned before. The rollers are 3” – which is also a tad bit larger than the industry standard.
Larger rollers generally translate to higher durability. You do not need to worry much about these getting damaged in normal wear and tear. If you are worried about the long-term durability of the product, fear not. Sole gives you a very respectable warranty policy, too.
The warranty is divided into a couple of parts. You get a lifetime warranty for the frame; 3 years for the motor, deck, and electronics. You can use the machine without a worry in the world.
For the price of this treadmill, the build quality is absolutely top-notch. The great thing about this one is you can even find it in the sale sometimes. That just makes for killer value.
Even fitness enthusiasts who want to work out at the comfort of their homes want to benefit from something that is adequately powerful. For that purpose, this treadmill achieves that without any issues.
You get a very capable 3.5HP motor with a max speed of 12 MPH. The speed is, of course, variable. You can either get some intense cardio running done on here or just a casual one.
There is the option to also get some elevation. Elevation makes burning more calories easier as you are working harder and going somewhat uphill. The Sole TT8 treadmill achieves 15% max elevation. This is plenty of incline for home and equipment.
The addition of 6 preset workout programs should have you spending less time fiddling with the settings and get you running quickly. We quite like the large LCD screen as well. More on that a bit later.
The overall theme of this treadmill that jumps out at us is just how user-friendly it is. The high performing motor, large touchscreen and the large belt size provide for a very well-rounded workout experience.
Apart from very good performance, this treadmill also has a couple of creature benefits that make working out and burning calories a better and more enjoyable experience.
First up, you have the screen. There is what the Sole calls the ‘pulse grip’. This provides you with a better grip when you are getting those intense running sessions done.
There is a speaker system and even an accessories holder. Take a break with a conveniently placed cup on the accessory tray. As if that was not enough, an integrated cooling system makes its way into the Sole TT8 treadmill.
Your body can overheat when you are working. So, The addition of a cooling system – which is basically just a couple of fans, and we must say it really is quite a nifty idea. These, although won’t make you super chilly, do provide some air movement to give you a more comfortable experience.
Working out at home does not have to deprive you of some of the comforts that you get from a gym. For some people, regularly going to the gym is out of the question. Whether it’s issues with scheduling or even not having access to a proper gym nearby.
A piece of compact and lightweight equipment like this can most definitely make getting into shape and getting some much-needed exercise right at home a very real possibility.
We quite like the Sole TT8 treadmill. The reviews of other users are very positive and with good reason too. This treadmill gives you everything that you might need in a compact and powerful package.
The build quality is admirably robust and there are some very cool and innovative features. Things like the cooling system, heart rate monitoring, and speaker system are very thoughtful additions. This surely is a no-brainer purchase and an easy recommendation from us.
