If you are training for a specific goal and some of your training is on a treadmill, it is important to know exactly how fast you are running.

Sometimes your tread speed seems inaccurate. Either the speed on the display is slow or faster than it actually is. Which requires a calibration to your machine. 

Sole F63 calibration is a process that is used to correct imbalances in the machine’s operating speed and incline systems. The procedure involves pushing the machine to its maximum speed very quickly.

The calibration allows you to accurately register the incline and speed feedback of your treadmill monitor.

You would also want to calibrate your Sole F63 tread after installing any new controller, motor, or console unit.

Sole fitness treadmill owners are also advised to recalibrate the tread any time you move or adjust your treadmill.
