Best Workout Sweat Towels for Peloton

If there’s one thing you’re going to need when you start using a Peloton, it’s workout sweat towels.

Trust me–you’re going to sweat a lot.

And that’s a good thing.

Because when you’re sweating, you know you’re getting a good workout.

However, as I wrote in my blog post about cleaning your Peloton, sweat can be bad for your bike.

Sweat has salt in it and salt can rust metals.

So, after mopping up your own sweat on yourself with a towel, you want to wipe down your bike after a workout.

It’s a topic I’ve touched on briefly.

For example, I discussed using microfiber towels in my blog post on maintaining your Peloton.

But beyond generic microfiber towels that you can find on Amazon, there are a handful of brands of workout sweat towels that I personally use with my bike, were designed with Peloton in mind and which I think you would love using, too.

So, the purpose of this blog post is to introduce you to these workout sweat towels.

One of these can also be used as sweat towels for runners, too.

Anyway, I think after reading my review of these towels, you’ll want to buy some for your Peloton room, too.

Personalized sweat workout towels

Finally, I know that people love the idea of personalized towels.

That is, towels that you can personalize with an inspirational message or your name or whatever.

You can find a ton of these options on Etsy.

So at the end of this article I’ve created a mini gift guide, if you will, of personalized sweat towel options.

Brands of the best workout sweat towels for Peloton

For starters I’m going to focus on two brands of workout sweat towels that I’ve been using with my Peloton. They are:

  1. Velotowel, originator of the bike frame towel wrap
  2. Gus Grip handlebar towel

VeloTowel Workout Sweat Towels

The company called Velotowel makes a number of products worth mentioning for Peloton lovers.

They are:

VeloTowel Frame Wrap

The VeloTowel frame wrap is more of a sweat guard or giant towel for your Peloton’s frame.

It fits over the frame, with a hole in the middle for the resistance knob.

I think this is such a clever design and a great way to keep your bike protected from sweat. 

VeloTowel offers a Frame Wrap version that fits the original Bike as well as the Bike Plus.

If, like me, you have two bikes–one OG and the other the Plus–you can buy a two-pack of the Frame Wrap at a discount.

This way you have them for both bikes and you save money. 

AeroWrap handlebar towels

If you’re looking for handlebar covers in towel form, then you’ll want to buy the AeroWrap.

There’s a version for the original bike and one for the Bike Plus.

They are sold separately.

The AeroWrap comes as a two pack, giving you a fresh towel for each time you work out.

This sweat towel slides over the “hump” in the middle of the Peloton handlebar and comes off easily to wipe yourself down after class.

Easy on, easy off.


The VeloMat from VeloTowel is the original towel that goes under your Peloton bike.

It’s the one I have in my Peloton gym on top of my bike mat. 

The VeloMat is Chevron-shaped, almost like the Look Delta cleats on the bottom of your cycling shoes.

It fits perfectly between the front and back legs of your bike.

VeloTowel bundle

I love that the folks at VeloTowel have bundled their most popular products.

That means you can buy what you need and save money over buying items separately.

Right now, there are two kinds of bundles.

One is the Ultimate Wrap Bundle.

There is a version for the original bike or the Bike Plus.

This bundle includes three items:

  1. VeloMat
  2. FrameWrap
  3. AeroWrap

Next, there is the “It’s a Wrap Plus” bundle.

As with the other bundle, there is one with products for the original Peloton and one for the Bike Plus.

It’s a two pack, containing the following:

  1. FrameWrap
  2. AeroWrap

Use code LEAH10 to save 10% on your purchase of any VeloTowel products.

Here are some additional must-have, best Peloton accessories.

Gus Grip Handlebar towel

The Gus Grip handlebar towel literally wraps around your Peloton handlebars, and I think it’s great.

One, it allows me to keep my hands on the bars without the towel slipping.

Two, it’s absorbent.

And, three, it stretches to fit handlebars on the original Peloton bike as well as the Bike Plus.

Best of all, if you use coupon code LEAH10, you’ll save 10%.

Finally, if you’re looking to support a women-owned business or brand, Gus Grip fits the bill.

Personalized workout sweat towels

When it comes to personalizing workout sweat or yoga towels, Etsy is your best bet.

There are so many options to choose from.

Here is a link to personalized sweat towels on Etsy.

Below, I’ve highlighted some individual selections.

Same with personalized workout towels to use on your Peloton.

I’ve seen custom embroidered towels that have your name and your favorite piece of exercise or gym equipment on them, such as a spin bike or barbells.

Plus, there are microfiber towels that you can personalize with your Peloton leaderboard name, too.

Final thoughts on the best workout sweat towels for Peloton

I’ve covered a lot of ground in this towel-centered blog post.

When talking about the best towels to use with your Peloton, I offered options for Peloton handlebar towels as well as overall sweat towels you can use when running on your treadmill or riding your bike. 

This article focuses exclusively on the best yoga towels.

However, if I missed something or didn’t answer your questions about towels to buy for your exercise routine, post a comment and let me know.


  1. I invented, designed and patent the first wearable sweat towel called The Gym Bib. Came up with the idea while on my Peloton bike. Please check it out at @thegymbib on IG Facebook and TikTok. Available on my website, Amazon and Etsy 🙂
