The Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Comp Exercise Bike is the update of the classic dual action exercise bike. Anything can be improved, and the standard model Airdyne is no exception. To show they have good sense,the Schwinn people didn’t try to replace the original Airdyne. They just introduced this model as an added model. Good move. Here’s how the Evo Comp does it better…
It’s the breeze… and the noise… See, the Airdyne models use the resistance from turning a fan to create the load you work against. Turning fans make wind and noise. In this case, lots of wind and lots of noise.
What the Evo has is a different fan and a different drive system. That fan is smaller and the drive is a belt not a chain. Plus, that makes for a physically smaller machine, easier to move and store.
What you get is a quieter bike with less wind noise and less drive noise too. That’s a good deal. Plus you get less breeze on you too. Now a breeze is not all bad, but the old Airdyne can generate gale force winds. That’s not good.
So, with the newer Schwinn Airdyne Evolution Comp Exercise Bike, you get the same type rugged design as the older model. But, you get that same performance with less noise and less wind blowing at you too. This is worth a look if you’re in the market for a rugged exercise bike that will probably work for as long as you want to pedal an exercise bike.
