Our Rating

Rating: 90.5/100. The Grand Tour Pro bike with 10″ iFit-enabled monitor is the top model in NordicTrack’s Grand Tour Series. Though its display is extra-wide, overall this bike is especially compact for convenient use at home. Its main appeal is a power incline/decline with settings from -10 to 10 degrees. When you train on an angle, simulations of uphill and downhill training feel especially realistic; other bikes can change the resistance but keep your ride flat.

Workout diversity with the Grand Tour Pro is exceptional. Thirty-five programs are preloaded to the console, plus with WiFi and an iFit Coach subscription you can access infinite computerized programs and training videos. Optionally you can train in manual mode and easily alternate among 26 resistance levels as well as multiple slope settings. Also, to support whole-body cross training NordicTrack ships this bike with two five-pound dumbbells. They can be stored at the front of the console to be easily accessible as you pedal.

Meant for almost anyone aged 14 and up, this NordicTrack bike has adjustable positioning for the handlebars, an adjustable and extra-large seat, and a 375-pound maximum weight load.

This exercise bike’s full price is $2499 but it often sells for less than $1500. The original owner gets lifetime coverage for the frame plus a five-year parts/electronics warranty and two years for labor.

Here are details about NordicTrack Grand Tour Pro bike workouts, other features and the factory-direct warranty.

Workout Programs

Grand Tour bikes arrive with plenty of workout programming, plus they can download new workouts anytime with the iFit Coach app.

The preloaded workout menu has 35 training programs. The routines are organized by main workout goal: calorie burn, incline training, intensity, heart rate and speed.

Using the heart rate programs requires a chest strap, sold separately.

iFit Coach, which brings infinite workout variety, can be added by the month or year. iFit Coach lets you personally design or automatically receive a new computerized personal training workout every day. You also get these options 24/7:

  • Google Maps workouts that match your preferences for calorie burn, distance, elevation change and more
  • Online Google Maps competitions planned by iFit members
  • HD video workouts led by world-class personal trainers; library includes classes for on and off the bike

Additionally with iFit Coach Plus your account can automatically download a choice of customized Google Maps bike workouts every day.

Each iFit subscription supports multiple user profiles. A profile is useful not only for workouts, but may also include health coaching that integrates exercise, other daily activity, nutrition and your sleep cycle.

NordicTrack Grand Tour Pro Features

A key feature of the Grand Tour Pro is the power incline/decline with maximums of -10 and 10 degrees. With controls built into the handlebars you can easily alter the intensity of your challenge and get the sensation of biking outside.

The integrated 10″ monitor is essentially a built-in tablet computer with apps for preloaded workouts, iFit and surfing the web. It can show 35 built-in workouts and has the iFit app for accessing new personal training workouts, exercise videos, and routines built with Google Maps data. An Android browser is included.

To encourage total-body training as you ride, the console stores a set of five-pound hand weights.

To support movies and music during workout time, the Grand Tour Pro bike has an adjustable-angle tablet holder. It can securely grip most full-sized tablet computers. iPod-compatible, Grand Tour Pro exercise bikes also have sets of 2” speakers built into their consoles.

Other features are a two-speed fan, two water bottle holders, and transport wheels.

Warranty & Guarantee

The standard warranty for the NordicTrack Grand Tour Pro bike includes:

– Frame: Lifetime
– Moving Parts & Electronics: 5 years
– Labor: 2 years

Additionally NordicTrack bikes are sold with a 30-day money-back guarantee.

Conclusion

The NordicTrack Grand Tour Pro bike is more exciting than the standard stationary bike, as it can physically tilt and deliver 10-inch-wide scenic views that match your motion. Overall this bike can help keep teens and adults healthy with cardio training, calorie burn and (including the hand weights) muscle toning for the whole body. Keep in mind that the flywheel on this trainer is lighter than the norm though, so using the incline is essential if you’re seeking serious resistance. With plenty of support for digital entertainment and multitasking, the Grand Tour Pro provides great incentive to make home exercise a habit.
