Assault AirBike ReviewAssault AirBike is a heavy-duty exercise bike designed by Assault Fitness. It uses air resistance and automatically scales to how hard you want to work out. Essentially, the way it works is the harder you pedal, the greater the resistance you’ll face. The bike is built on simple physics that are effective and those who use it tend to have a “love-hate” relationship with it, according to the manufacturer.

What makes the Assault AirBike unique is its ability to automatically ramp up resistance as you apply speed and force to push, pull and pedal. In this way, the exercise equipment manages to match an individual’s ability and strength, providing a workout that is not only tailored to the rider but one that is virtually unlimited.

The Assault AirBike is all about pushing you to your max, which is why it is liked by athletes and fitness enthusiast alike. Even the console on the machine has also been programmed to push you to your max. It is equipped with seven on-board programs, all of which are designed to match your mood. Whether you are ready for an intense Tabata interval session or you want to design your own workout based on distance, calories, heart rate or time, you can do it all. The machine was designed to give those who use it choices, and the more choice someone has, the more motivated they are to work out.

As for the bikes specifications, there is an LCD screen, where you can view and select the different programs. The exercise machine consists of a heavy duty steel frame, which prevents side to side movement. There is a comfortable hybrid seat with multiple adjustment options. The exercise bike also has a 25 inch diameter steel fan, reinforced pedals and crank, and 20 sealed cartridge bearings, utilized in every pivot.

While the Assault AirBike does offer those who use it many benefits. Among them include metabolic conditioning. It can help you break through plateaus in your training, and is a good way to incorporate interval training and build your aerobic capacity without the loss of strength or muscle mass.

That being said, while the Assault AirBike may be a great fitness tool, make sure you use the machine properly and be sure to talk to your doctor before you engage in any intense or strenuous exercise, especially if you have a health condition or an injury.

When this review of the Assault AirBike was written, it could be purchased at many online retail stores including the official Assault Fitness website, where it sold for $799.
