You need a mat under your Peloton bike for several reasons. The bike weighs around 170 pounds. It's a heavy piece of equipment and so you should protect your floor from scratches or dents. Also, a good mat will make your Peloton more stable and less likely to rock during your workout. In addition, people sweat on their Pelotons…. a lot! If you aren't sweating hard during the last half of your rides, you probably aren't doing it right. A proper mat makes keeping your workout space clean an easy task.

Peloton Mat Options

CyclingDeal Bike Mat

Size: 72″ L x 30″ W

A good hefty mat that's heavy and 3mm thick with a non-slip bottom to keep things in place. Your floor will be well protected. It's also easy to clean. It's a tad narrower than some of the other options, but it will still fit under the bike and catch your hard earned sweat. The logo also looks good alongside the Peloton bike. All in all, a great Peloton mat.

Size: 72″ L x 36″ W

Peloton's own branded bike mat is a great option, although a little more expensive than some of the alternatives. It's a big mat which will more than cover the floor under which the bike sits. The mat is water-proof, making it easy to keep clean. It's a heavy high-density product, and even on carpet, it provides a very solid base eliminating rocking. The non-slip bottom keeps things in place.

The Peloton Bike Mat can be purchased for $59 at Peloton's website.

Conclusion

There are a lot of great options out there for use as a Peloton mat, and I've talked about some of my favorites here. I do think that with so many options and range in prices, the non-Peloton brand mats will be the better option for most. I personally just don't think it's worth paying more for a logo, but I also understand that some owners might want consistent branding in their home gym. Either way, measure your space and pick the best bike mat for your setup.
