The quality of the manufacturing is what sets the Assault Air Bike apart from the rest of the competition out there. The bike is made up of thick-gauge steel to provide a durable frame.

What experts didn't like
Pricey. At 110 lbs., it's also heavy and hard to move. The seat gets uncomfortable after prolonged use.

The Assault Fitness AirBike gets almost unanimous positive customer reviews. One potential problem is a wobbly seat. However, the bike seat can be tightened or replaced with any standard outdoor bike saddle.
