Link for detailed written review of the Grand Tour Pro:
The Grand Tour Pro offers the perfect combination of comfort with innovative tech found on more expensive bikes! Angled handlebars, an upright design, and wide saddle keep you comfortable while you ride. It also includes built-in -10% decline and +10% incline. A motor under the bike frame lifts and tilts the bike to create actual grade in addition to resistance! It also has a nice 10” full-color touchscreen display and includes iFit free for the first year.
Some of our favorite features include:
+10% Incline to -10% Decline
A motor on the rear stabilizer lifts and tilts the bike to simulate outdoor grades. The combination of incline and 26 levels of magnetic resistance makes it feel as close as you can get to outdoor riding. This feature also significantly increases training variables.
Magnets oppose the motion of the flywheel to create friction-less resistance.
Magnetic resistance is silent and easily regulated electronically through preset resistance levels. It does not cause wear on the flywheel.
Digital Resistance Controls
Digital resistance is calibrated and consistent. Many cycling bikes still use friction resistance that is adjusted via a tension knob. One problem with this type of resistance is the tension is variable and hard to calculate. Digital resistance allows riders to find and achieve the same level of resistance each time on each level.
10” HD Touchscreen
Boasting a lovely 10” touchscreen, the Grand Tour Pro features crisp graphics and high resolution. The screen keeps you interested and engaged.
iFit is NordicTrack’s signature program that offers over 16,000 different workouts led by personal trainers. On the Grand Tour Pro, you can join a studio-based cycling class and ride alongside other cyclists — or you can select from any number of gorgeous outdoor routes filmed all over the world. iFit provides a myriad of interesting and abundant training options.
The wide, well-designed seat on the Grand Tour Pro is a welcome addition for those looking to be comfortable while they ride. This seat provides both support and padding.
Wide, ergonomic pedals
Extra-wide flat pedals with adjustable straps will keep your feet in position. Straps also allow you to “pull up” at the top of the pedal stroke, engaging glutes and hamstrings, so you get more out of the full pedal rotation.
Four different controls for incline and resistance
QuickTouch preset buttons on the console flank the screen. Resistance is on the right with Incline on the left.
Manual +, – buttons on the extension grips are easy to reach.
Additional +,- large buttons sit at the bottom of the console.
Touchscreen controls also allow riders to increase or decrease resistance and incline

Horizontal saddle adjustment (via seat knob)
