Schwinn 270 Review

You should have a few key things in mind when you begin your recumbent bike search: The first being the comfort of the bike. You are going to be using this thing a lot, and the last thing you want is a sore bottom (unless it is from the workout itself.) The second key thing was quality. You are spending a good amount of change on this bike, and you need it to be durable enough to last. The last thing was the main technical features. Most people cannot work out without music and want to be able to connect to fitness trackers and be able to monitor other workout data.


Schwinn was founded in Chicago by Ignaz Schwinn and partner Adolph Arnold in 1895.  Since then, they have become hugely popular for both commercial and home fitness products along with their line of on-the-road bicycles. Schwinn has been innovators in the industry ever since and introduced their piece of first in-home workout equipment in the year 1965. Nowadays, you can find the name anywhere. Most people have a Schwinn traditional bike in their garage and are not surprised to hear that Schwinn makes exercise bikes too. That said, they have quite a few options, and we recently turned our attentions to the Schwinn 270.

Overview on the Schwinn 270

The Schwinn 270 is a stationary bike. It is about 50 inches tall, about 30 inches wide, and around 90 pounds. No other bike comes close to the quality and features that this one has. When you go to spend your hard-earned cash on an exercise bike (in many cases, an entire paycheck) you need to get your money’s worth and then some. That is what the Schwinn 270 gives you.

The Schwinn 270 delivers in all regards. It works for anyone whether you are a workout beginner or a fitness expert. The 270 comes packed with features, from 25 levels of resistance to 29 great workout programs. You can also download your workout data, and it has excellent mobile device connectivity, and the electronic components have all the quality that Schwinn is known for. It nestles itself in the mid to high price range with an electronic console that is a highly user-friendly interface.

Comfort and Quality

When it comes to comfort, the 270, it’s in a class of its own. This product features enhanced back support and a padded seat to keep you comfortable longer. Many home bike users suffer from a lower back strain, and this bike is created with that in mind. The seat can be adjusted for many different postures and positions and has a vented back. It allows you to comfortably stay in shape with less of the sticky back sweat that makes you overheat.

As far as quality goes, nobody does it better than Schwinn in our opinion.  The 270 measures out at about 50 inches high and weighs around 90 pounds. It is a highly reliable piece of equipment, and you will be hard pressed to find any reports of problems. Additionally, this bike will remain sturdy through the most intense of workouts.


The features are another area where the Schwinn 270 shines. It has in-console speakers which are amazing when you want to play your music without having to wear headphones. It also has heart rate monitor. This is great for those that are cautious about pushing themselves too hard or too little. Along with the wheels added for easy transport, it has a feature that helps you connect to MyFittnessPal to upload your workout data directly. It comes with two different built-in fitness test programs that the bike uses to assess your fitness abilities along with 29 workout programs. With 25 different resistance levels, you will find you have plenty of room to make your workout harder.


Overall, you won’t be disappointed if you purchase the Schwinn 270 Bike. The Schwinn is known to be an affordable brand. In addition, it’s also known to help your body as it has a multitude of features to improve your rides. We are quite confident that you will be able to use it for your workouts, for a very long time.
