Rogue Echo Air Bike Released

Rogue Echo Air Bike Released

Rogue Fitness has released their first cardio machine, the Rogue Echo Bike. Similar to the Assault Air Bike and Schwinn Airdyne Pro, the Rogue Echo Bike utilizes air resistance along with a beefy frame to produce one of the best air bikes based on its specs. Is the Rogue Echo Bike the best air bike yet? Read the full review.

Pros & Cons

What we like ...
  • The most common phrase we hear from people regarding their Echo Bike is, "it's like Rogue took one of their squat racks and made it into a bike." It's that beefy.
  • Weighing in at 127 LB, the Echo Bike rocks side to side very little even with the strongest athlete going all out on a sprint.
  • Pretty much everything is made of black powder-coated metal; from the frame to the fan blades.
  • The Echo features a belt-driven fan instead of the traditional chain-driven system that leads to quick stops and starts and much less maintenance.
  • The LCD console screen is easy to read and features every metric you'd want.
  • The bottom of the legs feature leveling feet that can be adjusted depending on what the floor is like in your gym.
  • Although beefier than most other bikes, the Echo Bike still only takes up 44.5" in length and 23.75' in width.
  • The front wheels are oversized and heavy-duty which makes maneuvering the bike easy.
  • The Echo Bike is one of the better-looking air bikes on the market. This is objective, but the matte black powder-coat matches most other gym equipment.
What needs improvement ...
  • The overall size of the bike is bigger than pretty much every other air bike. This can be a negative or positive depending on your space and preferences.
  • The belt drive is overall harder to push than a chain drive like what's on the Assault Bike. Users report the chain drive being easier to "ghost ride" including CrossFit Games Athlete Jason Khalipa.
  • The Echo Bike, although not the most expensive air bike on the market, certainly isn't the cheapest.
  • One user reported that, "All the proportions on this bike feel much bigger than traditional air bikes. Smaller people can find difficulties with fit."

Product Summary

The Rogue Echo Bike is durable due to its heavy-duty steel, high quality engineering, and customization that drives it to be stronger than the average fan bike. It is under warranty for up to two years from the date of purchase, assuming that the product is used under normal conditions per the User Guide. 

Since it is overbuilt, it creates a smoother ride. The Rogue Echo Bike is 127 pounds and has a 350-pound weight limit, which allows it to provide a sturdy foundation for max-outs and outbursts. The Echo Bike is quiet yet consistent due to its belt-driven steel fan blade. It is easily portable and has a battery powered LCD console that lets athletes track everything from distance to calories burned. 

Due to its weight, the Echo Bike stands sturdy and is not prone to wobbling. Its construct lends itself to balance even when pushed to max output bursts. To add to the stability, there are rubber leveling feet under each base tube that adapt to the ground and create balance even if the floor is not level. 

The 6.375-inch by 6.37-inch LCD console provides the athlete with a variety of modes. These include different types of intervals, target, and heart rate tracking. The crystal clear console uses two AA batteries, which come with the purchase of the bike. 

The Echo Bike is finished in a black powdercoat and the steel tubing is 2-by-3 inches, 1.25-by-3 inches, and 1.625-by-3.12 inches. The seat is easily adjustable and padded. It locks into eight different heights and five different front-to-back settings. The grip handles, which are made of rubber and are 1.5 inches in diameter, are a part of the bike’s arms. There is a plate that is provided along with 4.5 inches long rating foot pegs and pedals. 

You do have to assemble the Echo Bike, but the tools you need are included with your order and align with easy to follow instructions. The fully constructed bike may sound overbearing, but Rouge has included a 1-inch wide set of wheels at the front of the unit, which allows it to easily be rolled around the gym.

    Summary

    The Rogue Echo Bike is our Top Pick for the Best Air Bike for most people. We've tested just about every air bike on the market, and the Echo combines many of our favorite features into one. The belt drive is much more durable and requires less maintenance than a chain drive. The size and weight make it extremely stable, and the price is much less than we'd expect for such a quality piece of equipment. If you want an air bike, this is the one we suggest.
