Product Summary

The Concept 2 BikeErg is an air bike popular in CrossFit gyms and among people who really want to feel the burn in their legs.  It uses air resistance generated by a fanned flywheel.  How much effort or power you put into pedaling affects how much resistance there is. The harder you pedal, the more resistance you will feel. For example, riding up a challenging hill.   The lighter you pedal the less resistance creating a smoother, easy ride.   

Like the Concept 2 Rower, the BikeErg has damper settings that can be changed to adjust the resistance you would want on the bike.  

The PM5 performance monitor allows you to see your pace, watts, rpm and calories in real time.  The PM5 Performance Monitor is Bluetooth-compatible, allowing you to connect to Concept2 ErgData app or hook up a wireless heart rate belt. The monitor is generated by the flywheel as soon as you start pedaling, however it still requires two D-cell batteries.  

The Concept2 BikeErg is lightweight and easy to assemble making it easily portable.  The seat and handlebars are adjustable to fit any person. For the bike enthusiast, you have the option to  attach your own bike seat, handlebars, or even pedals.

    After using the Concept 2 BikeErg over the course of two years in a variety of workouts from sprints to long-distance bikes, we highly recommend it to anyone wanting an air bike. Although we like air bikes with arms, we actually prefer the BikeErg and have found it to be great for general fitness as well as simply blowing up the quads. The BikeErg is a Concept 2 product; we think that speaks for itself.
