Is a fitness hybrid bike right for you?

A fitness hybrid bike offers the best of both the mountain and road bike worlds. Like a road bike the hybrid is lightweight and has thinner 700c tires. Like a mountain bike, the seat style and handlebar position keep you riding in an upright position. With components from each category, the Schwinn Hybrid Bike emerged for riders who want both comfort and speed.

What makes a fitness hybrid bike?

A fitness hybrid bicycle typically has flat handlebars like the ones seen on a mountain bike. With a wider grip, these handlebars help hybrid riders feel like they have greater control of their bike.

The tires on a hybrid bike are one of the most recognizable ways in which the hybrid bike combines mountain and road bike components. These tires have more groves like a mountain bike, but tend to be skinnier, similar to a road bike.

Some hybrid bikes also include a front suspension fork to help smooth out the ride. Both rim and disc brakes are common in this category to add to the versatile attributes found in this bicycle style.

What's the fitness hybrid bike riding position?

Fitness hybrid bikes are designed to keep you riding a more upright position than that of a road bike, but still keeps you in a slightly more leaned in position for the optimal body geometry for fitness riding.

Where can you ride your Schwinn fitness hybrid bike?

Fitness Hybrid bikes are the multi-tool of the bicycle family. Built to handle paved paths as well as unpaved, well-maintained trails, the Schwinn Hybrid bike offers the greatest variation in riding terrain. While it is best to let the mountain bikes handle the really gnarly mountain trails, a hybrid bike can be your ideal ride for paved paths, crushed limestone or smooth, dirt-packed scenic trails.

What people are saying

"I love my Schwinn Super Sport! Living in the Twin Cities I bike around the lakes and nearby parks. It is so nice to have a bike that can easily handle my adventures! The bike isn't heavy, which makes it easy to carry up my stairs to my apartment, if I need to."
