The Schwinn MY17 270 2017 Recumbent Bike is the updated model of the popular Schwinn 270 2013.  The Schwinn 270 2017 retains the same high-end features of the 2013 model and is virtually the same bike but with a couple of exceptions as follows:

·        The Schwinn MY17 270 2017 recumbent bike comes with a newly designed console that has been streamlined for ease of use, making it more user-friendly and intuitive to use.  Don’t worry though – it doesn’t cut back on features!  The 2017 model offers the same amount of programs, resistance levels, Dual Track blue backlit LCD display (2 screens), sound system with MP3 input, USB port, 4 user profiles, media shelf, and cooling fan just like the 2013 model.

·        The Schwinn MY17 270 2017 recumbent bike now includes Bluetooth connectivity which is a feature the 2013 model does not have.  The Bluetooth connectivity of the 2017 model allows for quick and easy transferring of workout data to online fitness tracking apps.  However, the 2013 model does have a workaround as you can transfer data via its USB port instead.

So apart from the above 2 exceptions, the Schwinn MY17 270 2017 and Schwinn 270 2013 are exactly the same – both are sturdily constructed and ergonomically designed for comfort and allow for a maximum user weight capacity of up to 300 lbs.

Both the Schwinn MY17 270 2017 and Schwinn 270 2013 offer plenty of variety to keep your workouts motivating and progressively challenging.  Each bike features 29 workout programs (including profile, heart-rate, custom, fitness test, recovery test, and quick-start) and 25 ECB resistance levels.

The Schwinn MY17 270 2017 and Schwinn 270 2013 recumbent bikes utilize a high-speed high-inertia perimeter-weighted flywheel together with an Eddy Current Brake resistance system which combine to provide super smooth and quiet operation.

The Schwinn MY17 270 2017 and Schwinn 270 2013 recumbent bikes feature a step-through frame design that make it easy to mount and dismount the large comfortable seat.  The seat is constructed with a thick padded contoured base and large vented backrest for support and airflow.  The seat sits on a sliding seat rail system with which you can easily adjust the seat height / proximity to the pedals via a simple-to-use lever, making it ideal for multiple users of different heights.

Additional features of both the Schwinn MY17 270 2017 and Schwinn 270 2013 recumbent bikes include a 3-piece crank; over-sized pedals with safety straps for secure foot placement; front-mounted transport wheels for easy relocation; integrated levellers and mid-frame support for added stability.

Summary:

Schwinn are a well-known American brand, renowned for their high-quality bikes and exercise machines.  The Schwinn MY17 270 2017 and Schwinn 270 2013 recumbent bikes offer excellent value for money with their wide range of features and solid build-construction, rivalling some of the bikes in the higher-end more expensive categories.

The redesigned console and Bluetooth connectivity of the Schwinn MY17 270 2017 adds to the bike’s ease of use but if you’re not bothered about those 2 features then you may still be able to pick up the Schwinn 270 2013 at a bargain price (while it’s still available!) and get the same amount of programs, resistance levels and other high-end features as the 2017 model as listed in the table above.


N.B.  It’s advisable to consult your doctor or health care professional before undertaking any new exercise regime.
