Schwinn Fitness AC Performance with Carbon Blue™ - What is the best indoor cycle for realistic feel? Who makes a maintenance free indoor cycle for group fitness indoor cycling studios and home use? Now there is a solution for home gyms and fitness studios - no more bike grease, no more repairing broken cycle chains, no more wear and tear adding maintenance time and cost when you should be focused on your cardio workouts and burning calories.
Introducing CARBON BLUE™ technology - a belt drive system combining unmatched durability with the authentic outdoor biking feel you expect from Schwinn. For nearly 20 years, Schwinn chain drive bikes have led the indoor cycling industry. Even as other companies began to use belt drives on their group cycling bikes, Schwinn stayed true to their technology for one simple reason: belt drives felt nothing like riding an outdoor bike.
Today, all of that is changing. There is a revolutionary new belt drive taking the outdoor bike community by storm, and Schwinn Fitness has adapted it and brought it indoors on the A.C. Performance Plus with Carbon Blue indoor cycling bike.
This next generation system delivers guaranteed durability and virtually zero maintenance, without sacrificing the Schwinn authentic cycling feel that riders know and love.
What is Carbon Blue™? 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, Schwinn Fitness has worked with Gates to adapt this revolutionary technology to their A.C. Performance group cycle. 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". Innovation, Unchained.
Benefits of Carbon Blue™:
Virtually Zero Maintenance Belt - Belt never requires lubrication, tension never needs to be adjusted, and there is no stretching to belt
Real Bike Feel - High-inertia drive train provides momentum and feel of chain drive, and toothed belt provides rider feedback and the authentic cycling road feel
Guaranteed Durability - Carbon fiber reinforcement makes this belt incredibly durable, which is why Schwinn Fitness can offer the longest warranty (5 years) of any belt or chain on the market
A revolutionary brake system uses magnets to create resistance. Nothing physically touches the wheel! There are no wear parts to maintain or replace over
time, and the result is a silky smooth ride that is consistent both from bike to bike, and from ride to ride.
