Features and Comfort

Without a doubt, this model’s most outstanding feature is its impressive 350 pounds of maximum capacity, which is the same offered by the more-expensive model Schwinn AC Performance Plus and more than the offered by the best-seller Keiser M3 Plus.

As a top-end model, the Schwinn AC Sport also comes with some really nice features that put emphasis on comfort, hence it will certainly encourage athletes to spend more time on it, and lose more weight in a surprisingly short amount of time. For example, it comes with a fully cushioned seat that is ergonomically designed to adjust to your body shape, and can also be horizontally and vertically adjusted to the user’s particular height. Additionally, it comes with thickly padded handlebars to provide a much firmer grip even when your hands get sweaty and slippery, which also come with a fore and aft adjustable option to prevent lower back and shoulder strains from constantly leaning forwards.schwinn ac sport seat

Thanks to the SPD toe-clips, users will be able to make the most out of the oversized pedals that can be adjusted to every shoe size. This spin bike also uses Virtual Contact Resistance technology to provide enough resistance to draw all the muscles into the workout without straining any joint or muscle. This is undoubtedly something that both experienced users and beginners will appreciate since they will be able to go for a customized workout according to their own personal fitness level.

The spin bike also operates using an aluminum plate and magnets to guarantee an entirely smooth workout, which is also enhanced by a heavy flywheel and a chain drive system. This particular product is also equipped with a water-bottle holder to render your training session more comfortable and limit the number of times that you’ll have to get down from the machine for a drink.

Lastly, though this model doesn’t come with an LCD display, it is compatible with MPower consoles, which can come in handy for those that like to keep track of their progress as they workout.

Assembly and Parts

This model comes partially assembled with makes it even easier for users to set it up. In fact, the only parts that you’ll need to put together are the handlebars, saddle and transport wheels. This cycle won’t require any trip to the store either since every single tool and accessory needed for the assembly process is included in the boxed packaging. Users will also receive a step-by-step instructions manual to facilitate this task. However, while the booklet claimed that customers would need around thirty minute to join the different parts, I found that I needed around forty-five minutes to complete this step.


This particular bike is so exceptionally built that only one user complained about a hard-to-manipulate stop button which, according to him, made his workout less enjoyable. Other than that, this item received an overwhelming amount of positive reviews.schwinn ac sport
