If you’re a TigerX cycling aficionado, you may have noticed some new gear in Tiger Lair this semester.
After consulting with our super knowledgable TigerX cycling instructors and getting member feedback, we decided it was time for a big-time equipment upgrade. Our new Schwinn bikes are pretty to look at — and we hear they work pretty well, too. Instructor Evan Jenkins let us know what’s up with the new bikes.
One of the biggest new features is the power component, which tracks how much energy you output. Now, the focus of your workout isn’t on distance or calories — it’s all about your effort and power.
“The power feature is a good way to check your effort level during class,” said Evan. “Since I have a background in outdoor cycling, it makes the class more realistic to riding outside.”
The new bikes also get an A+ for seat comfort, but that’s not the only other upgrade. “Some positive feedback I’ve gotten is that [members] enjoy the handlebars and how they give more options for hand placement,” said Evan.
Ready to see our new bikes in action? Check out this video and Evan will show you how to set up your ride.
