Product Summary

Featuring an improved graphic performance, the NordicTrack S15i is equipped with a 14-inch rotating HD touchscreen which creates an immersive training experience. This monitor tilts and offers one touch controls for easy access while mid-ride.

A membership to iFIT is required to utilize this bike. At the time of this writing, NordicTrack requires a 4-year membership to purchase this stationary bike. The cost of both the bike and the membership is built into the current price. So what is iFIT? iFIT is an online fitness platform which houses thousands of on-demand classes that vary in style, length, and intensity. With the rotating screen, you can seamlessly transition off the bike to a floor-based workout.

The S15i comes with some impressive specs and features. Two 2-inch digitally amplified speakers improve the listening experience. Combined with the HD touchscreen as well as incline ranges from 20% to a 10% decline, the S15i provides a session that reproduces an outside ride as well as any other bike on the market. An AutoBreeze fan and dual water bottle holders are located at the bottom of the console for your convenience.

With its Silent Magnetic Resistance (SMR) mechanism, the S15i has 22 levels of digitally regulated resistance offering a smooth and ultra-quiet ride. Resistance can be manually adjusted using the controls on the adjustable handlebar controls or on the touchscreen. With the iFIT programming, the resistance may also be controlled by the fitness instructor for a hands-free ride. If you prefer to do it yourself, manual controls can override the automated ones.
