Compare with other spinning bikes

One of the most professional spin machines on the market, the Schwinn AC Performance Plus is an ergonomic indoor cycle that will allow you to experience gym-quality workouts right in the comfort of your very own home. From the sturdy aluminum frame to the 6 magnet brake system setting, this spin bike is certainly worth its price. Most importantly, it remains an investment for life since it can very easily last for several decades with hardly any care and maintenance. In fact, long-term users have claimed to be quite impressed by how the magnetic brake system didn’t undergo any wear and tear, even after years of constant, heavy-duty usage.

About the Company

With a firm dedication to customer satisfaction and quality, Schwinn Fitness has become one of the main suppliers of both indoor and outdoor bikes. Now because of this- together with the quality and professional features that characterize its exercise bikes- we took the time to, in addition to this model, review the Schwinn AC Sport (which is also a top-end model) as well as the budget-friendly Schwinn IC2.

Product Features and Comfort Level

As far as comfort goes, there’s hardly any issue with this spin bike. For instance, this model is equipped with wide pedals that can very easily accommodate all shoe sizes, and pedal straps to hold your feet completely into place even during the most energetic workout. By the same token, the seat is wide enough to accommodate several body shapes without being uncomfortable for slimmer users. The thick foam padding easily keeps aches and burns at bay, hence allowing you to work out for longer hours without getting fatigued. Additionally, both the handlebars and the seat have the added advantage of being fore and aft adjustable to provide quite a harmonious and ache-free position.

As far as the features go, this spin bike is also enhanced with professional systems such as the high-inertia drive train that allows quite a bit of momentum, hence yielding more results in a shorter amount of time. It is also equipped with a toothed belt to deliver a surprisingly realistic sensation of outdoors biking, something which is bound to please veteran athletes.schwinn ac performance plus handlebars

As far as readouts are concerned, users will be able to make the most out of the high-performance display console that can easily be viewed from a distance. With this handy apparatus, you will be also be able to keep track of relevant data such as the number of calories burned, distance covered, workout time and the likes. This spin bike is also one of the rare machines that come with a 6-Magnet braking system to produce an exceptionally smooth and fully controlled cycling motion. Thanks to this system, the spin bike is entirely devoid of any of the usual annoying noises that normally come with poorer-quality machines. Another surprising and extremely rare feature is the twelve degree incline which assures optimal comfort, safety and weight loss.

Lastly, thanks to its aluminum finish, this model won’t just keep any rust away but it’s also lighter than similar models while remaining quite sturdy. In fact, and we consider this one of its best features, this model comes with a maximum capacity of up to 350 pounds! Now this is more than what more-expensive model Keiser M3 Plus comes with, and certainly an advantage over it.

Assembly and Parts

Personally, I didn’t have any trouble putting the spin bike together. In fact, in spite of all the additional parts such as the display console, I only needed around twenty minutes to half an hour to assemble it. The main frame comes partially assembled, which can make things easier for new users. The boxed packaging also includes all the required parts, tools and accessories to assemble the indoor cycle.


Hardly any drawbacks were noted with this spin bike. The only problem that users can encounter is related to the minimum height capacity of 4.11”, which can be detrimental to shorter athletes. Otherwise, this bike is so efficient that most customers claimed to have been extremely satisfied with it.schwinn ac performance plus side

A Top-end Spin Bike for Serious Athletes

All in all, this particular bike is extremely suited to users of various fitness levels. It is undoubtedly on the more expensive side but, in the long run, it does remain a solid investment for the future since it will help you cut back on gym fees by offering gym-quality features in the comfort of your own home. Additionally, with a highly stylish and innovative design, this model is also solid enough to withstand heavy-duty use, hence making it perfect for obese people as well. However, we noticed that when it comes to features, this model is very similar to the similarly-priced Spinner Blade, thus it’d be a good idea taking a look at that model before choosing.

The Schwinn AC Performance Plus Indoor Cycle is protected by a solid manufacturer’s warranty of 10 years on the frame, 2 years on mechanical parts and up to 1 year labor, and can be purchased on the Amazon website.
