Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Exercise Bike

The Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Comp features patented air resistance technology.

The resistance system is based on exponential resistance which means the harder you work, the greater the workout.

As a result, the Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Comp is designed to provide a smooth resistance system for both fitness and rehabilitative use.

The wind-based system also sprays off cool air while you exercise to keep you cool and comfortable. Learn more about the Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Comp below…

Quick Summary
Rating: 79.5/100. Resistance-based braking creates zero friction and considerably less maintenance than other models. The Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Comp features a small fan built directly into the wheel of the exercise bike.

The Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Comp may look like your average upright exercise bike, but once you take it for a ride the exponential resistance really separates it from the rest of the pack.

If you are recovering from an injury the Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Comp is one of the top trainers for rehabilitative use.

Workout Programs

The Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Comp features a mere two workout programs.

For its innovative resistance system and maintenance free design, there is really no excuse Schwinn didn’t put at least a little more effort into creating some pre-defined workout options for the Airdyne Evolution Comp.

If having a guide to your workout is important, you may want to consider another exercise bike with more pre-defined options.

Exercise Bike Features

The Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Comp features a complex resistance-based braking which creates zero friction and provides considerably less maintenance than other, more complex systems.

The upright exercise bike is all about smooth operation with sealed cartridge bearings that provide smooth and clear mechanics.

A durable steel frame delivers a quiet ride with max weight of 300 lbs.

The Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Comp does not have a cooling fan, per say, but the small fan-wheel cools user during exercise and basically resembles a workout fan attached at a different location on the bike.

Have trouble getting off and on larger exercise bikes? The low step-over height makes mounting and dismounting easier for smaller users.

The Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Comp is considered ideal for rehabilitative use because of its wind-based resistance with zero friction.

In terms of additional features, the Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Comp offers little else including no mp3 compatibility or water bottle holder.
