Best NordicTrack S22i and S15i Accessories and Clothing to Improve Your Indoor Cycling Experience
The NordicTrack S22i and S15i are excellent exercise bikes, but there are still plenty of accessories that make your NordicTrack S15i and S22i bikes much more comfortable. This is a definitive list of the best accessories for NordicTrack S22i and S15i spin bike to save you the time of scouring the internet for what you need to make the most of your indoor cycling experience.
In no particular order (you should read the whole article) here are the top accessories to buy for NordicTrack S22i indoor bike and NordicTrack S15i indoor bike.
14 Accessories you would need for NordicTrack S22i and S15i
Tablet Holder – Tablet Floor Stand
Although your NordicTrack comes with a lovely HD screen, it is still a good idea to have a tablet close by to watch your favourite show or keep on top of your social media while working out.
This stylish table holder does not attach to your bike but is a floor stand, which means that you can position it wherever is convenient for the space you have and the intensity of your workout. They are available in black or white and come with a wide range of adjustments, so you do not need to worry about whether this stand will fit your tablet or decor.
Phone Holder – Crostice Acrylic Phone Holder and Towel Hook
No matter how intense your workout it is always handy to have your phone within reach while cycling indoors. This phone holder attaches to the edge of the NordicTracks screen giving you a convenient to reach and secure cradle for your mobile phone.
Not only is it easy to reach, but you will also be able to see if anything urgent is coming through while you are working out, without having to take your eye off the screen if you are following a workout on the iFit platform. As a bit of a bonus, this phone holder also comes with a separate towel holder. Using the same fitting (double-sided sticky tape), it can be attached to the back of the screen to hold a small gym towel.
Thanks to the sleek no-fuss design, this is one of the top accessories to buy for NordicTrack S22i indoor bikes. However, as the NordicTrack S15i has buttons on the edge of the screen, you will not be able to use this phone holder on the S15i model. For Nordictrack S15i, I would suggest the TFD Cellphone holder. It fits both models, S15i and S22i exercise bikes.
Upgraded Pedals – Spinner Trio QR Spin Pedals
Using clipped in pedals on Nordictrack bikes may not be for everyone, but fortunately, Spinner thought of everyone when they designed their exercise bikes. These pedals are the only set you need, no matter what type of cycling cleats you use.
Being clipped-in while cycling indoors helps your cycling performance and makes long rides a lot more comfortable and bearable. These pedals have been designed with indoor cycling in mind and are guaranteed to improve your performance and comfort while on your NordicTrack exercise bike.
Even if you are not using cleats and opt for the toe clips with a unique snap-in pedal platform, you can still make use of all your leg muscles during your workout instead of relying on your quads all the time.
Seat cover – Zacro Gel Bike Seat Cover
28 used from $17.59
It is no secret that the NordicTrack exercise bikes do not come with the most comfortable seats. However, instead of buying a new seat altogether, you could try giving your exercise bike a new lease of life with this Zacro Gel Bike Seat Cover.
This is one of the top accessories that make your NordicTrack S15i and S22i bikes much more comfortable. The layer of gel covering makes a world of difference while you are cycling. Thanks to the fitting and non-slip design, you do not find that the cover slips all over the place while in use (this often happens with cheaper versions).
We also found that this bike seat cover does not make you too hot, no matter how intense your workout, due to the ergonomic design and large indentation in the centre of the cover. So if you are struggling to sit in the saddle for the whole workout, this is a worthwhile investment to let you focus on beating your PB rather than trying to get comfortable.
Replacement Seat – Velmia Bike Seat
One of the easiest ways of improving your comfort while cycling on NordicTrack S22i or S15i is by investing in a top-quality seat. It is one of the accessories that make your NordicTrack S15i and S22i bikes much more comfortable. The Velmia bike seat is an excellent option and comes in a range of 3 widths. We found the Touring style to be the best of both worlds and the perfect addition to a NordicTrack exercise bike.
The high-density memory foam and excellent air ventilation combine to create an enjoyable experience for you, no matter how long you decide to work out. This is one of the top accessories that make your NordicTrack S15i and S22i bikes much more comfortable to ride.
Floor Mat – CyclingDeal Bike Mat

A floor mat is one of the best accessories for NordicTrack S22i and S15i spin bikes. It often goes unnoticed, but once you have invested, you will realise that you should have had one all along.
A bike floor mat not only keeps your NordicTrack grounded, preventing it from slipping on hardwood floors (and potentially damaging them), but it also absorbs all that hard earners sweat that you want to avoid leaving to seep into or pool on the floor.
The Cyclingdeal bike mat is the perfect size for the NordicTrack and even helps to dampen the vibrations while you are pedalling at high intensity. If you are serious about indoor cycling and want to protect your flooring, then a Cyclingdeal bike mat is a must-have.
Cooling Fan – Portable Fan
You are not alone if you get very sweaty while riding your NordicTrack. Even at a relatively low intensity, you can quickly get boiling while cycling indoors. An additional fan is a top accessory to buy for NordicTrack S22i indoor bike.
This nifty little fan is rechargeable (up to 7 hours use per charge) and comes with a handy clip that can go straight onto the screen of your exercise bike. As it is battery operated, you do not have to worry about keeping it close to a socket while in use.
Heart Rate monitor – POLAR H10 Heart Rate Monitor Chest Strap
Recording your HR while cycling indoors on a NordicTrack S15i or S22i bike opens up a whole new world of training data to sift through. This super accurate and discrete heart rate chest strap from Polar is a must-have accessory for your NordicTrack if you are serious about your training.
You can sync this HR monitor to your phone, tablet or the NordicTrack itself using the built-in Bluetooth to monitor your HR in real-time. Using HR zones is a fun way to train and push your fitness to the next level, so why not invest in an HR chest strap to see which HR zone you have been training in?
Bike Dust Cover – CyclingDeal Waterproof Bike Bicycle Cover
After spending so much on a top of the range NordicTrack exercise bike, it makes sense to take good care of it. Whether you keep your NordicTrack in the garage or front room, investing in a bike dust cover will help keep it running smoothly and ensure that little hands do not damage the bike or themselves when it is not in use.
This bike cover is also 100% waterproof, so while you shouldn’t keep your exercise bike outdoors, it could give you some extra peace of mind that it is being stored safely, especially if you plan to park it up and not use it for an extended period.
Shoe and Towel Shelf – Nth Fit Bike Shoe and Towel Hook Hanger
This is the type of accessory you wish the NordicTrack came with as standard, but fortunately, there is an affordable solution. This neat little hook designed explicitly for the NordicTrack range is placed on the back of the seat rail and can hold a towel and a pair of shoes.
The shoe and towel shelf is a discreet NordicTrack accessory that, once you use it, you will never want to live without it. Although you do not want your exercise bike to end up as a clothes horse, keeping your shoes and workout towel in one easy to find place is very convenient.
Sweat Towels – Fitness Gym Towels For Indoor Cycling
If you do not need one of these, then you are not using your NordicTrack right. These handy cycling sweat towels are the perfect accessories that make your NordicTrack S15i and S22i bikes much more comfortable.
They are super absorbent and odour-free, making them a much better option than a tea towel or bath towel that you have lying around the house. As they come in a pair, you can have one towel in the wash while you use the other, so no excuse not to be working out.
Handlebar Sweat Towel – Nth Fit Handlebar Sweat Towel Compatible
For those who do not even have time to lift their hands while on your exercise bike, this handlebar towel is one of the best accessories designed explicitly for NordicTrack S22i and S15i spin bikes.
It lets you keep your head down without you having to worry about dripping sweat all over your bike and onto the floor. It is not attached, but as it was designed with the NordicTrack bars, it fits perfectly and doesn’t drop to the floor while cycling.
