Schwinn launches fitness bike with rear suspension system

Published November 20, 2015

MADISON, Wis. (BRAIN) — Schwinn's new Vantage fitness/hybrid bikes feature new Smooth Ride Technology, an elastomer suspension design that allows 15mm of rear travel.  The pivotless design includes an elastomer mounted between the seatstays and seat tube. The company said the design reduces vibration while preserving rear lateral stiffness. 

"The Schwinn Vantage is ideal for those who want a versatile bike. When on the Vantage, the rider is in a more aggressive sport position perfect for putting in extra miles on a bike path or fire road. However, the rider is still upright enough to comfortably cruise around town. The Vantage is highly functional; it has integrated mounts so it can be loaded up front and rear with racks, panniers and fenders for commuting and touring," the company said.

The Vantage will be offered in two models – the F1 and the F2, $880 and $660 respectively. Both will be available at independent bike dealers worldwide.
