The Schwinn Airdyne AD6 is built to become the best cardio machine for your home gym that you ever imagined because of the excellent cardio workout you can achieve for both your upper and lower body parts. It's very eye-appealing too with its updated styling and the new features will really please users as they experience a more natural motion while exercising and the air resistance system actually creates cooling air as you pedal which can make you feel more comfortable during the workout. There are many benefits to using the seat but perhaps most important of all is the fact that while sitting and pedaling the user is made more comfortable because of the extra-padded seat. Users up to 300 pounds in weight can use this exercise bike comfortably.
The Schwinn AD6 is easy to assemble and can be done by one-person although the instructions suggest two people for the job of setting it up. All tools needed are provided which is convenient. This is a very compact exercise bike that fits into a space of 28” x 52” easily and has a good-looking professional black finish which looks great with any room décor.
Unlike other bikes the fan is very quiet and the bike has a good resistance for both arms and legs. It does get louder as you increase resistance. Unlike other models the wind created by exercising does not hit you in the face. There are adjustable foot straps for a more comfortable ride. The easy-to-reach bottle holder is located at the front which is nice.
Some users have noted that when arms are in the fully extended position it can be difficult to reach the handgrips with no adjustment available to correct the problem. To compensate the rider leans forward, which is bad because the upright position is best.
The Bottom Line:
Despite the one con the Schwinn Airdyne AD6 is recommended based on overall performance, looks and comfort.
