So you want an exercise bike to reduce weight, improve lower body strength, and stay healthy? There are umpteen brands in the market, but there are only a few that are of top quality and affordable.

You’ll find top-quality spin bikes, but most are very expensive; you’ll also find many cheap brands that are not good enough for regular use. The Mad Dogg Athletics is one of the top brands that produce spin bikes. The company has introduced many models; some of them are for commercial use. The Spinning S3 Indoor Spin Bike – one of the most popular models – is a home spin bike that was derived from commercial models. In this article, we’ll talk about the best features and benefits of the Spinning S3 Indoor Spin Bike.

The Best Features and Benefits of the Spinning S3 Indoor Spin Bike

Size does matter

Most homes lack separate space for fitness equipment. Since exercise cycles occupy substantial space, most fitness enthusiasts are reluctant to invest in them. Fortunately, the Spinning S3 is one of the smallest in its price range. The physical dimension of the bike is 43 x 18 x 37 inches – a compact body that can fit in a small place.

To make the bike compact and portable, the makers didn’t have to compromise on the weight or strength of the product. The bike frame is made of corrosion-free steel and it weighs around 96lbs – sturdy enough to withstand intense workout by anyone weighing 250lbs or less.

Stability is a key element in choosing an exercise bike. The Spinning S3 Indoor Spin Bike has a rubberized base that can be adjusted to increase the grip on different surfaces. The rubberized base adds stability and prevents scratches on the floor. After the workout session, the bike can be easily moved with the help of small wheels near the base.

Adjustable seat and handlebars

The Spinning S3 Indoor Spin Bike accommodates anyone between 4’10’’ and 6’7’’ in height. In order to avoid injuries and maximize the benefits of the workout, you need to assume the proper posture during workouts. To help the user in assuming proper posture the bike comes with adjustable seat and handlebars. The bike has a multi-grip handlebar that can be adjusted only vertically (up and down).  The handlebar has 6 different adjustable positions. On the other hand, the seat can be adjusted both horizontally and vertically (i.e. 4-way adjustment mechanism).

To avoid accidents during the pedaling activity the bike is fitted with slip-proof straps on pedals and toe cages. The seat of the bike is thicker and wider; this is done to make the bike more comfortable.

The drive system and resistance

To mimic the feel of a normal cycle used on the road, the makers of the Spinning S3 bike have added the chain drive system. The chain drive mechanism and the medium sized flywheel ensure the pedaling activity is noiseless and smooth.

In the Spinning S3 Indoor Spin Bike, resistance is created by leather pads attached to the main tube. The friction mechanism is controlled by a knob. Turning the knob will increase/decrease the resistance of the pedaling. Reverse pedaling is possible, but its resistance cannot be adjusted.
