The Schwinn® Airdyne® Pro has received the 2017 Good Design Awards for the groundbreaking fitness solutions received this international award for their cutting-edge product design.

The Schwinn Airdyne Pro Bike was awarded a Good Design Awards out of the thousands of products entered. Organized by the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and the European Centre for Architecture, Art, Design and Urban Studies, the Good Design Awardhonors innovative and inventive international industrial, product and graphic designs. The award was founded in 1950 and is one of the oldest, most prestigious design awards in the world.

“By providing innovative designs that incorporate new technologies and are informed by what customers need to be successful, we are able to take everyday workouts and make them extraordinary,” said Rob Murdock, Senior Vice President, Innovation at Nautilus, Inc. “The Good Design Award proves that our fitness solutions meet the highest design standards for form, function and aesthetics.”

The Schwinn Airdyne Pro Bike is an iconic machine in a class of its own for low-impact, total-body workouts. The Schwinn Airdyne Pro is a unique type of fan bike that utilizes user-controlled resistance, so the harder a user pedals the more resistance they generate. As a result, the more resistance they generate, the more intense the workout becomes. Unlike traditional stationary bikes, the Airdyne Pro doesn’t need electricity. Users power the bike with their own effort. The bike’s iconic wind-resistance Airdyne Technology™ blends seamlessly with custom interval training programs to offer users of all levels uniquely challenging workouts.

This is the first design award received for the Schwinn Airdyne Pro Bike.
