One of the newest additions to our indoor cycle line-up is the Schwinn A.C. Performance Plus indoor cycle. Schwinn has generally been known for their high quality road bikes, but their foray into the fitness has been positively received. One of their flagship indoor cycles is the Schwinn A.C. Performance Plus indoor cycle, a small lightweight exercise bike that is great for a cardio.
If you’ve enjoyed riding a Schwinn bicycle before, you’ll definitely be at home on their indoor cycle. The Schwinn AC Performance Plus is designed to feel like real-life cycling, but you have the benefit of doing so indoors in a controlled environment. The cycle also has what Schwinn calls their “Virtual Contact” resistance technology. This innovative technology utilizes magnets and an aluminum disk to generate resistance. This method not only increases workout intensity, but it also keeps the brakes from wearing out which is great for the durability of the machine. The chain-drive system and extra-large flywheel allows for the resistance to be adjusted in continuous increments which allows for smooth and authentic pedaling.
The Schwinn AC Performance Plus indoor cycle also has a wide variety of adjustable options. The saddle is partly flexible and the seat is adjustable which will allow for maximum comfort. The handlebars can be adjusted to three different positions and has dual oversized water bottle holders. There is also a Smart Release safety system which slows the flywheel if you abruptly stop pedaling.
What makes this indoor cycle lighter than the competition is the aluminum frame, which is also rust-free as opposed to the more commonly used steel. In addition to the frame, the seat slider, handlebars and hardware material are also made of the same aluminum.
If you’re looking for a good midrange indoor cycle and are familiar with the Schwinn brand, there is no doubt that this indoor bike is for you.
