NordicTrack Bike Review

nordictrack bike

NordicTrack has created some of the most progressive modern exercise equipment in the fitness industry. Their bikes are sturdy & designed to last.

The S22i Studio Cycle features a 22-inch HD touchscreen. It also includes iFit Coach, live Google Maps, and quiet magnetic resistance. You can enjoy iFit trainer-led destination rides that keep you engaged with motivating workouts.

iFit Coach

iFit Coach is one of the most popular features on NordicTrack’s commercial series workout cycles. You can stream interactive studio and destination trainer-led classes right to your console, tablet, smartphone, or even your TV. iFit AutoAdjust changes real-time your machine’s resistance, speed, and incline to match the class.

You can also choose from a wide selection of pre-recorded rides that take you through a variety of landscapes around the world. These are not just flat routes; you will find yourself climbing actual hills and descending down trails that really get your heart pumping, build strength, and improve stamina.

You can download the iFit app to your laptop or smart phone and access thousands of workouts and studio classes not just on the S22i, but on other compatible equipment including their treadmills, ellipticals, rowers, and their Fusion CST home gym. This makes it easy to stay on track with your fitness goals. The program will record calories burned, exercise logged, and even your sleep patterns to provide you with a full health and fitness experience.

Google Maps

Google Maps is the world’s most popular mapping solution. It’s used over a billion times every day.

The service provides directions for cars, bikes, buses, and walking. It also offers real-time updates on public transit routes (visible once you opt for this option when getting directions).

It will show you the best route based on your preferences and will avoid any obstacles that may prevent you from reaching your destination safely. This includes avoiding low clearance bridges and overpasses.

It will also optimize your route based on your fuel type, whether you drive diesel, gasoline, or a hybrid car. Using this feature will help you save money on gas and reduce environmental impacts.

Rotating Screen

The console on this bike consists of a 22” HD touchscreen that can rotate and tilt. This makes it easy to follow along with iFit classes and feel immersed in the video content. It can also be rotated to watch off-bike workout videos or to keep an eye on your progress during a run.

The S22i is one of the best exercise bikes with a rotating screen, although it does come at a price. It’s also a bit bigger than other studio bikes, but it will fit in most home gyms. The bike features magnetic resistance, which is quieter than traditional friction resistance.

As with any fitness equipment, it’s important to follow the directions when assembling the NordicTrack S22i studio cycle. It can be a little tricky, and it’s a good idea to have two people working on it. You’ll also need a few tools, including Allen wrenches and a Phillips head screwdriver. It’s best to lay out all of the parts first and use a box cutter to open only what you need.

Comfort Seat

The S22i in this bike’s name stands for the 22-inch HD touchscreen, which is a primary way that riders interact with this exercise bike. It enables them to follow along with the huge variety of iFit videos and to feel immersed in their workouts. It also helps them to feel challenged and to get the most out of each ride. The bike is designed to automatically adjust for incline and decline, allowing it to mirror the terrain of each video workout.

It also has a built-in heart rate monitor and an Autobreeze workout fan. The oversized cushion seat is designed to be as comfortable as possible. It features memory foam that can help to relieve pain from pressure points on your buttocks and back. The seat can also be adjusted forward and back. The pedals on this NordicTrack bike are caged so you can use them with regular sneakers, or you can swap them out for SPD clip-in shoes.
