The Schwinn AC Performance Plus with Carbon Blue is in a class by itself with enhanced ergonomics, comfort and function wrapped in an even more beautiful package. Schwinn launched a phenomenon with the first production bike designed specifically for indoor cycling, and we’ve never looked back. Our newest bike, the Schwinn AC Performance Plus with Carbon Blue Indoor Cycle, is designed to enhance rider comfort with an infinitely adjustable seat and handlebars, a wider step-through and durable, covered stretch pads – all surrounded by a rust-free aluminum frame. A stronger drive train with carbon core technology belt drive make for easy maintenance while delivering an authentic riding experience indoors. It’s an innovative and stylish design that keeps us on the cutting edge of the indoor cycling industry – and it will keep you coming back time after time.
With this in mind, we gathered input from hundreds of users, cycling instructors and fitness buyers around the world to help us create a new line of products and education that would take cycling to the next level. The result: three new bikes with a revolutionary resistance system and rider fit; a new bike console that provides measurements and tracking never before available; and an updated instructor program that brings those new measurements to life, turning measurement into motivation.
Several years ago, a company named Gates introduced a concept never before seen on outdoor bikes – a belt drive that performed like a chain.
Their innovative system – called Carbon Drive™ – features a carbon fiber reinforced belt with teeth for maximum durability and true bike performance. Over time, this has transitioned from a novelty system to a mainstream solution used on hundreds of outdoor bike models today.
Over the past year, we have worked with Gates to adapt this revolutionary technology to our A.C. Performance Plus bike. The result is a new belt-based drive system that combines the maintenance-free durability and performance of a belt with the authentic-ride feel of a chain. We call it Carbon Blue™ – those who ride it call it “incredible.”
