NordickTrack has outdone themselves with the introduction of their largest touchscreen yet with the S27i studio bike. If the 27” Smart HD Touchscreen wasn’t enough to help you immerse yourself in the trainer-led workouts offered through a 30-day iFit Family Membership, the 30 W premium audio system completes the experience. For anyone who appreciates an interactive workout emulation, the S27i could be the bike for you.

You won’t be restricted to a handful of built-in programs with NordicTrack’s premium studio bike. The iFit Coach allows you to do something different each and every day, and certified personal trainers make sure the workouts you choose target your goals. 

The S27i is the priciest of the exercise bikes NordicTrack has to offer at $2,499, but you get what you pay for. If you don’t use all the bells and whistles, you may be better suited for a lower-tech option. However, if you appreciate maximizing innovative design, keep reading to see if the S27i will check all the boxes.


The Great

  • iFit Membership: Your 30-day Family Membership provides the opportunity to experience the immersive world of virtual fitness. From simulated rides that realistically guide you through remote control by a certified personal trainer to group fitness and more, you get a personalized touch without ever leaving the house.
  • iFit-Enabled Touchscreen: The S27i makes engaging with iFit easy with a 27” Smart HD Touchscreen. 
  • Ergonomic Padded Saddle: The improved padded seat is complete with vertical and horizontal adjustment capabilities. 
  • 24 Resistance Levels: The 24 levels of resistance allow you to calibrate a realistic experience as you enjoy Google Street View images along the way. 
  • AutoAdjust™ Technology: Your iFit trainer can make remote adjustments to your resistance and incline so you don’t have to worry about it. 
  • Two-sided SPD pedals: Maximize efficiency with a more secure connection to the bike. 
  • Wireless Heart Rate Monitoring: A Bluetooth heart rate monitoring system makes it easier to closely track your biometric data for maximum success in meeting fitness goals. 
  • AutoBreeze™ Fan: Not only will it keep you cool, but it can mimic the wind in your hair as you immerse yourself in the iFit destination of your choice. 
  • Dual Water Bottle Holder: Hydration is never more than arm’s length away with not one but two water bottle holders. 
  • Transport Wheels: Moving your S27i around the house or even from one home to another is made much easier with front-mounted wheels.
  • High User Weight Limit: The S27i can support riders weighing up to 350 lbs. 
  • Warranty: The S27i is backed by a 10-year guarantee on the frame, two years for parts, and one year for labor.




The Not-So-Great

  • No built-in workouts: If you don’t plan to renew iFit Coach membership, you’ll need to get creative in workout programming.
  • Heavy unit: This S27i has an in-box weight of 217 pounds, which is heavier than many studio bikes.



Who Should Use The Proform C10R Recumbent Bike?

The NordicTrack S27i is an excellent purchase for the tech-savvy fitness guru who values the ability to closely target their workouts to meet their goals. Whether you frequently train for events, live a very active lifestyle, or just get bored with standard machines with a handful of repetitive built-in programs, the S27i is a breath of fresh air.
