Schwinn Airdyne Evo Comp Exercise Bike


imageFor a real all around workout from an exercise bike, look at the Schwinn Airdyne Evo Comp Exercise Bike. This handy little bike is easy to fit into almost any living area, and has many extra features that make it a step above the ordinary stationary bike your mother used to have. Old-fashioned stationary bikes were basically just that, a bike that didn't roll. Modern exercise bikes have a lot more to offer than those earlier models, and the Airdyne addition is even better because the flywheel in the front of the modern exercise bike is replaced with a resistance fan that does double duty.

Airdyne Technology

The Airdyne fan is the hub of the resistance power of the Schwinn Airdyne Evo Comp Exercise bike. This machine doesn't used a cable run tension band that can break, and is needed to provide various levels of resistance on other modern exercise bikes. With an Airdyne bike the fan creates the pressure resistance so there are no knobs to turn, or computers to program. You control the resistance simply by how hard you pedal. Less speed and pedaling creates a lower resistance level to warm up and for those who need a lighter workout until they get accustomed to an aerobic workout. As you increase your abilities, or after a warm up period, pedal harder for stronger pressure.

The Airdyne fan also has another function that makes it even more unique. It creates a comfortable breeze that makes your workouts a pleasure. Sweat is fine during a workout, but overheating is not. The Airdyne fan wheel keeps you cool during your workout.

Total Body Workout

The Schwinn Airdyne Evo Comp Exercise Bike has handles that are unlike a standard exercise bike. With standard bikes you get handlebars that resemble a road bike. These can cause problems with riders who have shoulder or back problems. Leaning over the handlebars of a road bike style stationary bike can put a lot of pressure on the back, shoulders and even wrists. With the Airdyne Evo comp the handlebars are ski-pole styled handlebars that operate in unison with the pedals, and place your body in a more upright position, with no pressure on the back, shoulders or wrists. On top of having less pressure, using the exercise arms allows you to get a upper body workout as well as a lower body workout.

Comfort

The Schwinn Airdyne Evo Comp Exercise Bike includes a waterbottle, and bottle holder located on the frame in front of the seat for easy accessibility. The smooth running drive system makes it a joy to ride as well. The fan has a gentle whirring sound, but it is easy to watch TV or listen to your favorite music while you ride the Schwinn Airdyne Evo Comp Exercise Bike. Finally, if you have spent any amount of time on a standard exercise bike, or road bike, you know that the seat is the most important part, and usually very uncomfortable. The discomfort of a standard bike seat can range from mildly irritating, to so uncomfortable you stop using it. An exercise bike is only as good as the time you can spend on it, and Schwinn knows that. They made the Schwinn Airdyne Evo Comp Exercise Bike comes with a comfort seat that is wide and anatomically correct to take the pressure off your tail bone, and for men, to protect vital parts that come in contact with ordinary seats.

Disadvantages
