What makes the AD6 such a good value proposition? The fact that it is a cut-price fully-fledged air bike and professional athletes have been using air bikes to get amazing results for years.
If its good enough for pro athletesthen its good enough for you, yes, but is it suitable?
In a word: yes, it’s a great bike which is practically 3 machines in 1 because you can:
Use the arms only (what you do is rest your legs on the footrests that are near the fan at the front)
Use just your legs
Use your arms and your les together.
You know the great thing about being able to vary your workout by using the bike different ways? It shocks the muscles and when you shock the muscles you shock the cardiovascular system, in a good way and according to our in-house fitness expert, Guru: Tim Garrett:
“The body quickly adapts to any type of exercise so if you want quick results then expect and plan on having to change your workout regularly, the Schwinn Airdyne AD6 is the perfect 3-in-1 machine to help you achieve great results by constantly varying your workout”.
Down to the nitty gritty, what features has this bike got?
It has optional heart rate monitoring so you can see if you’re hitting the target heart rate of your choice, if you connect a heart rate monitoring strap (bought separately) it will show on the bikes screen.
It’s testament to this bikes quality that the frame gets a 15 year warranty, considering Schwinn know that most of the users will be doing punishing internal training on it, that’s really something special.
If you’re not familiar with air bikes, they have a fan inside and the harder you pedal the more resistance there is, its like a rower and if you’ve ever used a rower properly you know that you can pull hard enough that its so hard you have to stop In 30 seconds or less, it’s the same with this wonderful air bike.
And they have cracked it with the seat, you don’t usually see big seats on bikes, but Schwinn have done I here and boy does it work well. I am surprised that more bikes don’t do this.
