NordicTrack S22i / Best Exercise Bike

This NordicTrack with 22 screen and iFit Coach membership is NordicTrack’s response to the Peloton revolution. In other words, it’s a new way to “bring home” the energizing atmosphere of a spin bike studio. With downloaded spin class videos, you can benefit from top-notch iFit Coach trainers and get motivated seeing other riders work toward fitness goals.

Also included with iFit Coach personal training are:

  • Unlimited downloads of Google Maps workouts, which let you virtually bike outside
  • Access to hundreds of iFit Coach exercise videos for workouts away from your bike
  • Automatic logging of fitness statistics such as heart rate and daily steps
  • Daily suggestions for calorie intake, and an easy way to track meals and snacks
  • Many other benefits for all-around personal training

Pros:

  • 22″ HD Touchscreen: NordicTrack named the Commercial S22i Studio Cycle for its 22-inch diagonal touch screen. This impressive viewing screen has HD resolution for iFit Coach spin classes and other workout programs. For comparison, the typical modern fitness machine has a screen that’s 10 inches or smaller.
  • On-Demand Cycling Classes: With the S22i and an iFit Coach membership, you can exercise with a motivating bike class environment anytime. Each time you power up your bike, the big screen will welcome you with tailored workout suggestions. If you choose a spin studio video, you’ll exercise with a sort of “virtual reality” gym experience: The iFit instructor will address the camera with specific tips and general encouragement. You’ll appreciate how each iFit Coach trainer is clearly a world-class personal trainer, an expert at shaping your body and providing encouragement.
  • Quiet Magnetic Resistance: Instead of using a contact brake, the S22i has its tension controlled magnetically. This friction-free resistance system helps the bike operate quietly. You can choose from 22 resistance levels for tailored strength training along with cardio exercise.
  • Upper-Body Exercise: Each NordicTrack Commercial Studio Cycle is shipped with a pair of three-pound dumbbells. Storage is provided behind the bike’s handlebars, so hand weights are always within easy reach. This makes it especially convenient to get upper-body exercise during bike workouts. Many of the iFit Coach bike studio videos provide instruction.
  • Heart Rate Monitoring: NordicTrack studio cycles have contact pulse sensors. They’re also compatible with Bluetooth chest straps for wireless heart rate monitoring. With the iFit Coach app, you can automatically chart your pulse to track cardio health long-term.
  • Adjustable Saddle: This bike’s saddle is adjustable both vertically and horizontally to fit a wide range of user heights. It’s padded to promote comfort and endurance. Additionally, it’s interchangeable with standard road bike saddles; you can customize your exercise bike to make it feel like your outdoor ride.
  • Caged Pedals: To give you extra stability during intense spin classes, bikes in the Commercial Studio Cycle Series have pedal cages. You can swap the pedals for standard road bike pedals too.
  • Compact Steel Frame: Compared with most home fitness machines, indoor cycle trainers need little space. The NordicTrack S22i is about 4½ feet long and 2 feet wide.
  • Transport Wheels: For easy repositioning, after workouts, this cross trainer has transport wheels. Just tilt the bike to roll it into position.
  • Emergency Stop: A prominent red brake button lets you quickly stop the wheel.

Corns:

  • Assembly: Standard delivery for NordicTrack studio bikes is free. However, for the S22i we recommend paying $250 for the premium delivery service, which includes assembly. This bike has more than 150 parts. By paying extra you’ll likely save lots of time and frustration.
  • Price: The S22i is one of the most expensive spin bikes. The advanced electronics push it into a high price bracket. Some shoppers would prefer to spend less on a durable ride with less flash.
  • Slow Customer Service: Typical wait times for NordicTrack customer service have been long in our anonymous shopping experiences and according to customer reviews.
