Today, we will be taking a look at all three Velotowel accessories designed to keep your Peloton Bike and Peloton Bike+ clean and sweat-free. These items include the Velomat for underneath the bike, the Framewrap to protect the bike frame, and the Aerowrap for the handlebars, which can also be used as a face towel.
So let’s look at each of these accessories designed for Peloton Bike one by one so that you can get a good sense of how they are designed and what they look like, and of course, I will share my opinions on how they hold up.
This is a machine-washable mat that sits beneath your Peloton Bike in what Velotowel calls the “Sweat Zone.” This means the mat is designed to take up as little floor space as needed to catch all your sweat. Compared to other options, this allows the mat to be less intrusive and easier to move when needed.
But does the smaller Velomat, with its “Sweat Zone,” really catch all of your sweat? For me, the answer is ALMOST. I can get pretty sweaty, so after particularly long power zone sessions, I would occasionally notice a few droplets on the ground outside of the Velomat. But this rarely happened, and I would guess that it prevents 98% of my sweat from hitting the floor.
The Framewrap comes in two versions: one for the regular Peloton Bike and one for the Peloton Bike+ (the bike+ requires a USB-C passthrough). As the name suggests, it wraps around and protects the frame of the bike.
As part of the entire Velotowel package, it works well. However, compared to the Velomat and Aerowrap, it ends up doing the least of the workload, but that’s to be expected since it is protecting a smaller area of the bike. It did its job effectively, though, and I’ve never had to wipe down the Peloton frame since using it.
Finally, we have the Aerowrap, which is really sort of a mix of a handlebar cover to catch your sweat and a soft towel to wipe down your faced neck during a workout. I abused this thing to death on my rides. And after dozens of washes, it still works great (although it does look a little beaten up). I will be ordering more of them to rotate through, and my suggestion is to have at least two per person if you use your Peloton regularly.
Overall, I think Velotowel has made some really great sweat accessories here for the Peloton Bike that I personally find very useful. They definitely go with a more minimal approach than other items I’ve seen, which is nice so that things are easier to move and clean. While the color design may not work for everyone’s tastes, it does for me, and I think it looks pretty good.
I see the Framewrap and Velomat lasting quite a long time. The Aerowrap may not last quite as long with how much I am wiping my face down during workouts, and I’ll probably need to get some more to replace them over time. But that is to be expected, and they are well priced (under ~$16 for each Aerowrap). Velotowel is definitely a great option to check out if you are looking for a way to keep your Peloton Bike cleaner and sweat-free.
