What We Love About the Spinner S1 Spin Bike:
Like most Spinner indoor cycles, the S1 is a well-built piece of exercise equipment. Even though the Spinner S1 is a light Spin bike at 96 lbs, its 31 lb flywheel keeps it grounded well. It has some great components for its price point, like the pop-pin adjustability of the seat and handlebar. The seat allows you to adjust both vertically and horizontally, while you get vertical adjustment on the handlebars. The seat itself is large and comfortable, which lets you extend your workouts.
The Spinner® S1 comes with some nice bonuses. First, Spinner throws in four workout DVDs that are sure to motivate you. These videos are designed provide intense workouts. The titles include Ultimate Energy, Train and Tone, Turn and Burn, and Maximum Results. On top of the videos, Spinner also includes the Spinning Guide to Ride manual. This manual is designed to make sure you reach your fitness goals and even create a healthier lifestyle if that is your objective.
It would be nice if the Spinner S1 had a computer to track exercise statistics. Nothing elaborate, but at least something with basic readouts for time, speed, distance and calories. Most competitor indoor cycles at this price point have basic computers. In fact, there are cycles in the $200 price range that provide computers. Not a deal breaker, but a drawback.
Another drawback of the Spinner S1 is that its size and weight capacity doesn’t accommodate everyone. For instance, the design and adjustability of the Spinner S1 will comfortably fit anyone from 4’10” to 5’10”. That’s not a large range and eliminates a lot of potential riders and customers. The 250 maximum weight capacity also eliminates potential riders.
Final Word on the Spinner S1 Spin Bike:
For its price range, the Spinner S1 is a great Spin Bike. You’re definitely getting a quality bike from a reputable company. They also throw in some nice bonuses to help with your exercise regime. There are however some drawbacks to the Spinner S1. Most notably the lack of computer and size of the bike does not fit everyone. There are some bikes that will accommodate these users.
