Our Rating

Rating: 82/100. So what do we think of this bike? It has good and bad points. We like that the bike comes with a sturdy build. It has a 2.5mm tubing frame and linkage arms that have rotational bearings. It also has all metal fan blades, which is going to give the best overall riding experience possible.

In addition to that, it also has a 350lb. user capacity, which is high and demonstrates just how solid this one actually is. A lower user weight capacity is a giveaway that the bike may not be as well built as it claims.

The frame on this bike is heavy duty at 125 lbs., which is higher than most other bikes on the market of a similar nature.

With a 24-foot resistance fan, you’ll naturally stay cooler while riding this bike as that fan is going to make some wind. It also allows you to have a maximum amount of resistance if needed, therefore you can be sure you’ll feel fully challenged when doing your workout session.

What we really like about this particular air bike is that the chains that typically require lubrication have now been replaced with an automotive grade silent drive belts. This means that you’ll have no worries about dealing with maintenance. Before you would have to lubricate those chains every so often, but this is no longer a requirement. This makes the bike exceptionally easy to have and use, so it shouldn’t give you any sort of issues in the long run.

This is good, because the lack of warranty is definitely cause for concern. While most people should feel quite confident still going ahead with their purchase, know that you aren’t covered should anything break down.

Just by looking at the build though you can see the commitment to workmanship and quality that’s been put in, so this should help give you some peace of mind.

The fan on this bike is also heavy duty at 24’ and will supply you with variable resistance depending on what you set it at. This helps ensure that you continue to see good progress with your workout programming.

Pros:

  • Has a very solid build and construction
  • Is going to give you a real-life feel when riding your cycle
  • Offers a LCD screen for providing real-time data of your workout session
  • Has oversized adjustment knobs, which are going to help ensure that you can seamlessly go about your workout, changing resistance as you go
  • Has a very heavy duty frame at 125 lbs. versus the typical 95-100 lb. frames on the market
  • Is compatible with polar heart rate so you can keep track of how hard you’re working during each workout session
  • The LCD console is fully programmable to meet your own specific needs and desires
  • Bike contains no chains, which is going to provide some huge progress as far as maintenance goes. You’ll virtually never have to maintain this bike whereas in the past, with similar air bikes, ongoing lubrication was key
  • The blade is all metal for enhance durability. There will be no worry about the fan breaking.
  • Reasonable price point of just under $1000

Cons:

  • There is no warranty available
  • The bike doesn’t provide nearly the same programming options of what you’d get if you were using a commercial based bike instead. If you’re used to iFit or similar, you are going to find you feel very alone when using this bike
  • Some people may not like the air bike experience. If you’ve never tried one before, do try and do so before making your purchase

Workout Programs
