NordicTrack equipment often sets the bar to which other fitness companies’ equipment is compared to by both reviewers and customers. It allows people to quickly assess how to rank a piece of new equipment. One example of this comparison would be comparing the Bowflex C6 Bike to the NordicTrack Commercial S22i Studio Cycle.
Why We Compared The NordicTrack S22i vs. The Bowflex C6
Normally, we do our best to compare exercise bikes that fall into the same price range, as this tactic allows for more accurate comparisons of what each bike has to offer. However, Bowflex only offers one bike at this time, the C6 stationary bike.
Also, Bowflex has already chosen to compare it to Peloton Bike, which is comparable to the NordicTrack S22i. So, since they have chosen to stack their exercise bike against that tier of bikes, we thought we would show you what the C6 exercise bike looks like next to the S22i exercise bike.

Which Exercise Bike Should You Pick?
Price-wise, the Bowflex C6 is around $1,000 cheaper than the S22i. However, with that lower price, you also lose things like having a display screen, the built-in iFit with free 30 day trial membership, and other quality additions you get with the NordicTrack S22i. Depending on your workout needs, you will likely be able to figure out which of these bikes you will get more use out of in the long run.
