The Sole TT8 Review — An excellent but overpriced treadmill

Read Other Treadmills


Today the Treadmill Sensei is working on updating his page a bit, so the reviews for today are going to be a little short.

Everyone knows the Sensei loves Sole Treadmills. They put out some great product and are generally really well-priced. I say “generally” because they do a have a unit which saddens me a little every time I see it in the DOJO…not because of quality, because the treadmill is great, but because it’s a bit overpriced for what it is.

The treadmill I’m talking about is the Sole TT8 treadmill. As a slight variation on the upper-end Sole S77, the TT8 treadmill has a lot of great things going for it: it has a giant, cool-running 3.5 horsepower motor, huge 3″ rollers, 12 mph max speed, 15% incline, 400 pound user weight, heart rate monitoring and control, a quarter-mile track and a monster 22″x60″ running area.

The running area. That’s the problem. You see, that’s the only real difference between the Sole S77 and the Sole TT8 treadmills. Two additional inches to the width of the machine. Unfortunately, the going price for the unit is almost $500 more than the S77. It’s a bit outrageous.

Don’t get me wrong, the Sole TT8 is an excellent treadmill but it’s just not worth the ultra high ticket price that it’s being sold for. At $1999 it would be a great treadmill. At $2299 it’s just ok.

High cost without much of an upgrade, the Treadmill Sensei gives the Sole TT8 treadmill a reasonable 3 out of 5 golden buddahs.

Being priced too high for a slight upgrade gets the Sole TT8 3 gold buddahs out of 5.

About My Treadmill Reviews

TreadmillMy treadmill reviews are both subjective and objective. They are objective in the sense that I will provide you with information about each machine, such as motor, weight capacity and other features. But they are subjective in the sense that I am really giving my opinion of each treadmill. You may agree or disagree with my opinion, but my hope is that my elliptical and treadmill reviews can be helpful to you in making a decision on what to buy. Remember that each review is just what I think. You can always check out Treadmill Doctor, Treadmill Review Guru or these other treadmill reviews if you want another opinion.
