The NordicTrack S27i Studio Cycle is the luxury bike from the brand with three such machines in its lineup. At nearly $2,500, the S27i has just about everything you could ever want on an exercise bike. First, it streams iFIT interactive workouts from a 27-inch high-definition touchscreen that swivels so you can do workouts on the bike as well as off (iFIT has classes such as yoga and strength training). With iFIT, trainers actually control the resistance and incline while you exercise, so you don’t have to.
Speaking of incline, the S27i is one of the few indoor exercise bikes on the market that has decline capabilities. With a range of -10% decline to 20% incline, your ride can mimic an outdoor riding experience. The bike also comes with 24 digital resistance levels.
The S27i also has a number of other high-end features, such as:
- A built-in cooling fan
- Dumbbell holders and a pair of 3-lb dumbbells
- Silent magnetic resistance for a quiet ride
- Hybrid pedals so you can clip in or use the toe cages
While $2,500 is a lot of money, NordicTrack does offer financing. This is also a larger bike, mostly due to that huge screen. It also weighs over 200 pounds, so it’s no picnic to move. However, if you can make the investment, you might just fall in love with this bike.
