Features of the Schwinn 130 Upright Exercise Bike
The Schwinn 130 Upright Exercise Bike contains the type of features that can make your workout feel more like playtime instead of exercise time. Our team tested the bike for several hours to identify the features you see below.
LCD Monitoring System
You will love the LCD monitoring system feature that lets you keep an eye on essential health elements such as your heart rate, calories you are burning and fitness level increases. Track the distance you cover on each workout and then send it to your online Schwinn Connect account to see the progress you make with each workout. The display system illuminates through a series of six lights that make the information easy to read.
Body and Frame
The bike gives you one of the sleekest designs you can find in a stationary workout cycle. There are two integrated levelers running through the center of the bike that give it a sturdy foundation that allows you to pedal as fast as you can without fear of tipping the bike over. There are transportation wheels on the cycle, which allows you to easily move it from room to room when looking to change up your workout routine.
You will have everything you need for a successful workout at your fingertips. The handlebars have an ergonomical design that relieves pressure from your hands during a workout session. You have the ability to raise or lower the handlebars as necessary throughout your workout to gain a better grip for the tough parts of the workout. The padding covering the handlebars makes for a comfortable grip stance that works with the natural design of your hands.
The bike offers a wealth of accessories that make your workout as comfortable as possible. You will have a fan, operating on three speed levels, facing you to help alleviate the heat that intense workouts typically generate. Acoustic chamber speakers allow you to bring your favorite songs along for the ride, which can make a workout easier to bear at times. There is a water bottle holder built into the seating system, which keeps water close by during your workout.
You have the ability to select from over 20 levels of resistance settings that work to make your workout function in a manner similar to an actual bike workout on the open road. Easily adjust your resistance setting to mimic traveling up a mountainside and then lower the settings to return to a normal road setting. It all happens at the touch of a button that sits closely to your fingers in the center console of the bike.
