Buy a new Peloton recently? Here are 10 of the best accessories for your Peloton Bike, including cycling shoes, sweat towels, bike fans, and other essentials for your new best friend.

Cycling shoes

Peloton Altos Cycling Shoe – $145

While Peloton’s original cycling shoes were never highly recommended, the new Altos seem to be much better. Made with a single velcro strap closure and breathable jacquard mesh, the Peloton Altos are are great option.

Venzo Cycling Shoe – $99

While the Altos are great, the Venzo Cycling Shoes are just as nice and around $45 cheaper. These are what I wear most often with my Peloton Bike and have little signs of wear from over 100 rides.

Peloton Bike fans

VeloQuip Dual Fan – $75

A nice fan may be the most important of all when it comes to Peloton Bike accessories. When I tested over eight fans, these were my favorite. They may not be the cheapest option, but they are by far the best. During hard rides on hot days, this two fan set-up can make all the difference.

ATP Bike Fan – $29

If you are looking for a more cost effective option, the ATP Bike Fan does a great job. With surprisingly good air flow for being so tiny, this is a great option for the Peloton Bike. It gets extra points for also including an optional ‘Disco Light Mode’.

Peloton Bike sweat accessories

Spin Towel – $44

The Spin Towel by Drip Accessories is one of the best ways to protect your bike and keep your handlebars sweat free. Coming in a variety of colors and designs, they look as nice as they feel.

VeloMat – $49

Unless you want to have to wipe the sweat off your floor after every Peloton bike ride, you may want to consider the VeloMat. While small enough to easily place under the bike, it is just the right size to catch the sweat where it drops.

Heart rate straps

Peloton Heart Rate Band – $90

Just like their cycling shoes, Peloton’s previous heart rate band was generally not a great option. However, the recently released and upgraded Peloton Heart Rate Band looks much better. With the ability to wear it on your upper arm, it is a great option for both on the bike and for strength classes.

WHOOP strap –

If you want to better optimize your Peloton workouts, you might want to consider investing in a WHOOP strap. The new WHOOP 4.0 tracks your heart rate, HRV, sleep, and more to give you complete insight into your health and recovery. Knowing which days are best to push hard and which to back off can make a big difference in quickly you progress.

Peloton Bike modifications

The Pivot – $49

If you don’t have a Peloton Bike+, you can easily install the Pivot by Top Form Design to be able to pivot your screen. This makes it a lot easier to take strength, yoga, mobility, and bootcamp classes. Check out our review it here!

The Adjuster – $249

While expensive, the Adjuster (also made by Top Form Design) is a Peloton Bike accessory I consider essential for those on the shorter or taller spectrums. The Adjuster allows you to move your handlebars closer or farther away which can be essential to getting the perfect fit. My wife, who is 4′ 11″, would not be able to ride the Peloton Bike comfortably without it!

While this is by no means a comprehensive list of all the accessories you may want (padded shorts anyone?), it is more than enough to get you started. Enjoy your Peloton Bike!
