Nautilus Inc. Rides Into the Holidays With Two New Schwinn® Bikes
Value is showcased with innovative new products that include a wide variety of available workouts, JRNY® connectivity, Terrain Control Technology, and an affordable price point
VANCOUVER, Wash.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–This year, don’t let the holidays be a burden to your wallet or waist. Instead, find your best workout at a price you can afford with two new bikes from Schwinn®, the trusted brand in home fitness bike technology.
Nautilus, Inc. (NYSE: NLS), an innovation leader in home fitness for more than 35 years, today introduced the Schwinn® 190 Upright and Schwinn® 290 Recumbent Bikes. Both bikes are connectable to the JRNY® digital fitness platform, feature Terrain Control Technology, and new design elements and functionality suitable for all fitness levels.
“We know it’s a challenging economy, and our research tells us that consumers are sticking with home fitness for their health and wellbeing, even as they’re watching their budgets,” said Jim Barr, CEO, Nautilus Inc. “Designed with consumers in mind, the Schwinn® 190 and 290 bikes prioritize – rather than sacrifice – the key features, affordable price point, and functionality that deliver on their wants and needs.”
Consumers’ long-term habits have shifted over the last two years to favor home fitness. In fact, 62% of U.S. adults surveyed in August 2022 by YouGov said they consistently worked out at home – up from 43% who reported the same at the beginning of 2020.1
“We are continuing to elevate the home fitness experience with innovative products that deliver on both quality and price,” said Barr. “Paired with our JRNY® adaptive fitness platform, consumers can immerse themselves in workouts that adapt to their fitness level – not just in this moment, but for years to come. We are helping consumers invest in themselves – in fitness that feels different.”
The Schwinn® 190 and 290 bikes offer high-performance cardio combined with the ability to pair the user’s device to the JRNY® adaptive fitness platform. Terrain Control Technology automatically adjusts resistance with elevation changes in your ride when you experience select Explore the World workouts in the JRNY® platform. The bikes’ built-in media shelf makes it easy to explore new and personalized JRNY® workout experiences by using a tablet or phone (available on iOS and Android devices).
