Product Review: Schwinn AD6 Airdyne Exercise Bike
Price Range: $650 – $700
Who Would Buy This: Those shopping for a long-lasting exercise bike which provides an intense and challenging cardio workout in the comfort of your own home.
- Solid, robust construction is a staple of the Schwinn Airdyne series. With strong welding, quality bolts and a solid frame, you can be confident that this exercise bike will be your workout buddy for years to come.
- Assembling the Schwinn AD6 Airdyne is easy even without assistance, taking only about 1 hour in total. All the tools required for assembling the bike are included.
- The compact design means the bike can fit inside even smallish rooms. The smart black finish looks very classy and upmarket.
- Thanks to its dual-action design, the AD6 provides an intense workout for both your arms and legs, either independently for a more concentrated exercise or simultaneously for a full-body workout.
- Schwinn’s air-based resistance system utilizes a unique design which means the faster rate at which you peddle the resistance level increases so you’ll really be put through the rigor for a truly challenging ride.
- The on-board console displays six metrics to monitor your progress, which include distance, RPM, watts, speed and calories. The longer length of the display means the metrics are now displayed simultaneously opposed to scrolling through, which is nice for convenience.
- Front transport wheels make moving the bike that much easier when it comes to transporting it.
- An optional reading rack is available, allowing you to read as you workout.
- While the console is an improvement from the AD4, it is difficult to read the display due to the lack of a backlight.
Guarantee: 15-years on frame, 3-years on parts, 2-years on electronics, 6-months labor.
Value for money?
Schwinn took all what was great about the Airdyne AD4 and enhanced it to provide an even better experience. A superior compact build, enhanced comfort features and a smart aesthetic design make this an exercise bike of tremendous value and a brilliant successor to a much loved classic.
