The Lifespan S1 is a solid entry-level bike for anyone who is just getting started in indoor cycling.It comes with a heavy flywheel, weighing 31 lbs, thereby making sure that the pedaling motion feels smooth and natural, although it doesn’t quite deliver that true road bike feel like higher-priced spin bikes do.
The resistance knob is in an easy accessible position and lets you change intensity levels quickly.Spin bikes tend to be unable to offer users a comfortable riding experience, but we feel that Lifespan have succeeded in this aspect.The seat is cushioned and easy to adjust via its simple adjustment knob. Both the seat and post can slide up and down (the seat also can be adjusted forwards and backwards), allowing you to get into a comfortable riding position.
The PVC dipped, no-slip handlebars also happen to be easy to grip and are adjustable both up and down to cater to people of varying heights. With their soft-grips they are comfortable to hold onto, allowing you to work out for extended periods of time without suffering from strain, and also allow for multiple exercise positions.
The LifeSpan S1 weighs 85 pounds, features built-in transport wheels for easy portability, and is backed by a 5-year frame, and 90-day parts, labor and wear items warranty.
LIFESPAN S1 USER REVIEWS
Users say that the S1 is easy to assemble: “I had no problem putting it together,” “took roughly an hour from unpacking to fully built.” It is also well constructed: “I was very surprised at how solidly built the spin bike is at this price point.”
The S1 is comfortable and easy to use: “The bike is very comfortable,” “The resistance knob is easy to set,” “The bike is easy to move around,” “the seat is padded and comfortable.”
Users also say that the bike is well constructed: “The bike is solid,” and good value for money: “The price for the performance so far is great!” “great spin bike for the price.”
The only complaints consist of the “lack of fine adjustment for saddle to pedal relationship,” and how “the pedals are not made for clips,” forcing you to purchase separate pedals if you want to use the bike with spin shoes. Lifespan’s customer service also seem to be a bit hit and miss.
