How long will the Schwinn AD2 Airdyne last?

The Schwinn AD2 Airdyne is built for light to moderate use and will offer many years of hearty workouts to the lucky purchaser. It comes covered in a 5-year frame warranty, 1 year on mechanical and electrical, and then 90 days on wear parts and labor. Those needing to ride more than a few times a week might look at purchasing the optional 3- or 5-year extended parts and labor warranty plans.

Brief Overview

The Schwinn AD2 Airdyne pits the user against themselves in the race to riding glory. Humans offer their own resistance and battery power with this innovative design. Though fitness machines in this price range are generally not built to last, the low amount of electrical and fancy parts in this machine will help keep it humming through many sweaty workout sessions.

Overall Quality

The Schwinn AD2 Airdyne offers both lower and upper body workouts which is an incredibly motivator in helping tone muscles and build cardio health. The power of the wind is harnessed through innovative technology with each circle of the pedal offering unlimited resistance tailored towards everyone’s own fitness level. The AD2 has a compact frame at right under 4-foot long and can easily be moved with the attached transport wheels to provide more living space in smaller abodes. Handy pegs adorn the cycle to provide sole upper body workout fun when legs need a rest while oversize straps keep feet secure with each ride of the pedal. The AD2 has a very tiny LCD screen and it offers RPM, speed, distance, time, and calorie information.
