Sole TD80 - Best Features
Unlike many of the treadmill desks you find on the market today, the Sole TD80 is sturdy and well built, with the highest grade steel construction.
You get Sole’s patented Cushion Flex Whisper Deck, which reduces impact on the joints by 40%.
The treadmill is quiet and smooth, with an ample motor and foldable design for convenience.
Ample Work Space
The TD80 comes with a 47″ x 31″ desktop space, plenty of room for your laptop, phone, tablet, files…whatever it is that you are working on while you’re walking on the treadmill.
You can attach the LCD console anywhere on the desk that you’d like, so if you’d rather have your laptop right in front of you and the display off to the left or right side, you can do that.
You can also adjust the height to your exact specifications which is a great feature.
Whereas many desk treadmills have a cramped walking area, the Sole TD80 gives you a 20″ x 50″ belt, so there is plenty of room to stretch out regardless of your size.
User Friendly Display
The display on the TD80 treadmill desk is basic but gives you everything that you need to enjoy your workout.
You can do everything with the touch of a button, and it even has three convenient speed controls: slow, medium and fast.
So you can just get on and go, and get right to your work without any setup. And when you’re finished, just hit the stop button and get off. Its that simple.
Other Nice Features
As we mentioned you get an ample 2.5 CHP motor, 325 lb. max user weight capacity, foldability and solid manufacturer’s warranty.
Sole TD80 Review - Conclusion
The Sole T80 is a solid choice in the treadmill desk market, as there really aren’t too many to choose from, especially ones that are high quality like this one.
As you read about above, you get a nice sized cushioned deck, intuitive console, generously sized walking area, solid construction and an ample warranty.
There aren’t really any negatives here, but if we had to mention something it would be the fact that there is no Bluetooth capability, like you find on some other models like the similarly priced LifeSpan TR1200-DT5.
But it’s definitely not a deal breaker as it has everything else that you could want in a treadmill desk.
If you’re in the market for a treadmill desk, the new Sole TD80 is definitely worth considering.
If you can find it on sale for around $1,500, jump on it because that is a great price for the high quality treadmill you are getting.
