Users will very rarely find a budget-friendly bike that delivers a full-body workout. The Airdyne AD2, however, is designed to engage every major muscle group of your body into the training, hence allowing you to burn more calories in just a short space of time.

This model comes with a fan that generates unlimited air resistance depending on how hard you pedal. By this toke, the machine is entirely suited to both inexperienced and experienced users since it automatically adjusts to each user’s individual fitness level. Because of the infinite amount of resistance, this model provides you with the freedom of selecting your personal level of tension since the harder you pedal, the more resistance you will encounter. Professional athletes will also be able to push themselves to their limits and enjoy a motivating and highly challenging cardiovascular training session.

This piece of exercise equipment can very easily sustain up to 250 pounds of maximum user weight, making it entirely suited for moderately overweight users.

Ease of Use and Comfort

Because of its air resistance, this model can be on the noisier side. However, most customers have been satisfied with the bike and have found its noise to be rather tolerable. Indeed, you will still be able to watch a movie, listen to some music or simply talk on the phone while you train.

The ergonomically-shaped handles are designed in such a way so as to prevent you from over-straining your body. Best of all, they’re thickly padded that will provide you with an extremely steady grip even if your fingers get slippery and sweaty after an intense training session. The pedals are just as ergonomically-designed, with a textured surface to ensure that your feet remain securely into place. They are equipped with long and firm straps that can suit various shoe sizes, even if you wear a larger than average size. Unlike lower-quality machines, this product also comes with deluxe floor protectors that do not only provide a firm grip but also protects your floors and carpet.

Since the Airdyne AD2 is entirely designed for comfort, it also comes with a thickly padded seat that can easily suit various body shapes. Additionally, users can vertically adjust the seat to their particular height to make it more comfortable. The stationary bike features built-in rollers that will help you easily move the machine to any designed room of the house. Since it comes with a compact and smallish footprint, the bike can suit individuals who live in cramped spaces.

Since it comes with all the tools and accessories required for the assembly process, you won’t have to constantly dash to the hardware stores for supplies. Most customers claimed that they only required around thirty-five to forty minutes to set up the bike.

One of the most comfortable bikes on the market, this item is designed with both novice athletes and veterans in mind. Although this model is generally considered a good investment,  it’s worth pointing out that its 250 pounds of maximum capacity are lower than what you’ll find on the cheaper model Marcy Air 1 Fan.
