Assault Air Bike Classic– Assault Fitness (AS-ASSAULTB)


Assault Air Bike Classic by LifeCORE Fitness - At Assault Fitness Products, our mission is and always will be, to make the highest quality and most durable fitness equipment. The Assault Air Bike is the culmination of over two years of painstaking efforts by the LifeCORE Fitness development team of engineers, Crossfitters and fitness enthusiasts. We listened to your needs, likes, dislikes and fitness goals. This feedback gives us incredible insight and experience that goes into the development of every Assault product.

Whats the best airbike for crossfit training? There are quite a few airbikes available nowadays, but this is the BEST airbike you will find. Modeled after the classic Schwinn Airdyne design, the Assault Air Bike has injected some new technologies, such as ball bearings on every pivot point, resulting in a fine piece of machinery designed to perform under even the most brutal interval style training. The Assault Air Bike has quickly gained acceptance in some of the toughest CrossFit facilities and has become their new standard of bike due to the rugged durability and unparalleled performance. Want to find out more about why the Assault Air Bike is the new standard for crossfit and cross-training? Read the article "Assault Air Bike is the Ultimate Cross-Training Tool!".

Key Design Elements:

  • The All-New Assault AirBike - Fan bikes have been around for decades. The wind resistance bike concept is great, but no one had sought to improve upon this design. Our team set out to create the highest quality, most durable air bike on the market... Let us introduce the Beast, The Assault Air Bike.
  • Workout Without Limits - No two athletes are the same which is why the Assault offers individualized and infinite adjustments for an unlimited workout. Keep it mellow and level to target a heart rate range, or jump into a high-intensity interval session that reduces you to a quivering heap of sweat.
  • Programmed to Push - The Assault console is either a friend who gently motivates, or a drill sergeant who kicks your butt. Match your mood to your workout with one of the seven on-board programs. Choose a challenging Tabata interval session, set a calorie, distance or time target, or build your aerobic base with a heart rate program. More choices means more motivation.
  • Built to Punish, Built to Take Punishment - We set out to design a machine that can take what it dishes out. Thick-gauge chromoly steel, sealed cartridge bearings and oversized pivots ensure the Assault holds up hundreds of thousands of maintenance-free hours of use on the military base, on campus, in the gym, physical therapy or at home. Built for the commercial environment and will prove to hold up to the most demanding abuse.
  • Built-In Durability, A 20-Bearing Salute - When we set out to design the Assault AirBike, we knew that integration of sealed cartridge bearings in every pivot and moving part was an absolute necessity and were more than a little shocked when the count totaled twenty. That's a bearing or two in every pivot, be it pedals, bottom bracket, flywheels or linkage arms. Twenty sealed-bearings in all... tucked and hidden neatly away under machined and formed steel. You can say that its the things that you cant see that make the biggest difference.
  • The Computer, Watts Up - We started from scratch with the design of the Assaults console. LCD technology offers a versatile array of display images. Large buttons and quick keys to offer faster access to the on-board programs, while the screen is packed full of useful data feedback. Simultaneously monitor heart rate, speed, RPM, time, Watts and calories... All this functionality in a sleek, compact heads-up display. Since Watts were important to our development team, we knew we had to get this right... and we did. Our first task was to connect the Assaults drive train to 20 horsepower electric motor, enabling us to deliver a constant RPM. We then coupled a calibrated torque measurement meter to the drive train and recorded output at each RPM increment from 5 to 150 RPMs. With a simple math conversion, the Assault was armed with actual Watt output values. The result... what you see is accurate.

Excellent Tabata Workout
WOW!! I can't tell you how great this bike is for Tabata. It's the best equipment I've used for Tabata workout. We had one at the gym, and it kicks my butt. I decided to buy one for the house since I wanted to kick my butt more often. It's the right price, easy to put together, and easy to move around in my apartment if needed. It's definitely a love/hate relationship!!

Solid and exhausting
Solid product. Easy to install. Easy to move around. Easy to use. Little cumbersome to adjust the seat. Chain is pretty noisy.

The dreaded ass bike, so good, yet it sucks
We have the assault bike in our gym, and I decided to get one for home for accessory work. I hate this bike, and yet I now have one for the house. The more I use it and deal with the awfulness of it, the better I get. It is great for building cardio capacity. It was packaged securely, the instructions were easy to follow and assembly was a breeze. Quality product!! We put this bike to the test at the gym and it takes a beating!! Highly recommend this bike!!

intense and effective workout
I've logged about 80 miles on the bike so far, enough time for the novelty to have worn off. I mostly do intervals, 30 seconds hard/30 seconds easy for 30 minutes or so. Somehow, the bike encourages you to push yourself more than I have experienced using an elliptical or a stair machine. I'd rate the intensity level second only to a cross-country ski machine, based on 50 years of working out for sports and general fitness.
The bike is as sturdy as everyone says, and is simple to assemble.
The only downsides are minor: Whirring fan noise is considerable when you're pushing it hard. And for me, the "wind" in my face was excessive, so I rigged up a homemade "fender" to deflect it.
Other than that, I'm more than satisfied with the quality of the bike and the effectiveness of the workouts.

Great Bike !
Ordered the Air Bike and it only took two days to get to my house! After a few minutes of getting the bike off the pallet, out of the box, I started putting it together. It was packaged very well, no issues. It took about 30-40 minutes to put the bike together. The tools they sent with the product were ok but I went out to the garage and got my real tools to make sure everything was tight. The bike performs as described. Being in our 50s, my wife and I wanted something besides a treadmill, and this does the job. I like how the seat adjusts up/down/front/back .The only complaint so far is trying to register the bike. The link to do this states cant find the page, and by the time I get off work the 800 number is a recording. Oh well I will keep trying. Overall 5 stars. Well built, gym quality and built to last!

Love it... and equally hate it ;)
I love the Assault Bike! I've been wanting one for a long time and I am so happy I finally bought one for our home gym. Set up is super easy-- I did it by myself and in about 45 min (I watched the video the whole time and it was super helpful!). It's a very durable machine with easy maintenance. And it's amazing for building your aerobic capacity in a low-impact way! I highly suggest this machine for any gym!

back in the saddle again...
We grew up in the 70's with the Schwin Airdyne and really helped our workouts, but moved away from it for other activities. The Assault is a great piece of equipment, smoother than the air dyne and with seat adjustments it becomes very personalized.... Great finish and look forward to many years of cardio work.... Thanks very much for making it available

Can you set the classic to meters?
Paul K on Aug 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: On the Assault Air Bike Classic, total distance will be displayed in miles or kilometers depending upon how the console is programmed during the initial set up. Speed value will be given in miles-per-hour or kilometers-per hour, depending upon which units were selected during the console setup process.
