Give the user options when working out depending on the intensity of workouts you’re looking for – including out of the saddle pedaling.
The console offers interval programs for high intensity workouts and displays time, distance, calories, rpm, watts, H/R and speed.
MICRO-FIT SEAT ADJUSTMENT
The 4 way adjustable seat allows for a quick and easy personalized fit.
The durable dual steel fan blades handle the most intensity workout.

BUILT TOUGH WITH MULTI-GRIP HANDLEBARS
The Cascade Unlimited model offers infinite air resistance with a multi-grip handlebar design, especially versatile for upper body workouts both sitting and standing. Like the Cascade Classic model, the Unlimited has the same tough construction and durable features and it is ideal for both users needing low resistance exercise as well as offering a high intensity heart pumping workout for more conditioned athletes. Like with all air bikes, the individual controls the intensity as they pedal, push, and pull to meet their own fitness objectives. The large foot pegs also make it simple when users only want a great upper body workout.

- Multi-grip handlebars

Over the years I have used many cardio machines in many different gyms. As a frame of reference, of all I worked out on, I preferred the treadmill to run on, when I still could, and the Stairmaster Gauntlet, when available, About 6 years ago I created a home gym. It was/is equipped with a Stairmaster stepper, spin bike, treadmill, elliptical, rowing machines, stepmills, and a Helix. I was using the spin bike until peddling became too painful because of an injury . So, I went to my local fitness store (Syracuse Fitness) to find a replacement first trying the Avalanche but thought that new Schwin Aerodyne Pro was vastly superior. So, I traded my bike for the Schwin and was perfectly happy for a few weeks until I saw and then tried the Cascade. I traded up on the spot. I provided this background so the reader will have a frame of reference about how to evaluate my review of the Cascade.
As good as the Schwin Aerodyne Pro is, which is vastly superior to the Avalance and other airbikes used for crossfit, the Cascade performed much better. It was much more robust/solid (built like a tank) beautifully engineered, more stable, easier to set the seat adjustment-height and distance from the bars because it is engineered for minute adjustments done easily and quickly, worked more smoothly, with better seat comfort than other stationary bikes, and the controls worked better and were easier to read. The display is easily read and the HR easily and quickly paired with my Polar 10 in a few seconds. The first time on the bike, for a 20 minute “ride,” I easily got my HR up to 135, putting in about the same perceived effort used on the Schwin, where my HR didn’t exceed 131. This is by far the best piece of cardio I have ever used for elevating HR quickly and maintaining a good workout zone, as well as comfort and ease of use. Other cardio machines I have used, or own, require some setup before use, but the Cascade can be fired up immediately which makes it ideal for interval and HITT training.
Try one yourself. You will not believe how vastly superior it is to any other airbikes available and most commercial cardio machines.
I purchased my Cascade Air Bike last month and couldn’t be happier. I have been a lifetime runner (40+ years ) but pounding the pavement has taken a toll on my knees. I needed to find an option to cut down on running.
I thought I’d miss running outside but the Cascade Air Bike has been much more than a replacement for running. The console is super easy to use and follow. I can do a number of different high intensity workouts, a long even paced workout, or set the console for a specific distance, a specific time or for a specific number of calories to burn. I also purchased a a heart rate monitor (separate purchase but not expensive at all – Polar T34 is great!) and I would highly recommend it so you not only get the most out of your workout but are also careful to not overdo it.
No matter which workout I choose (high intensity or long even ride), I have had absolutely NO pain in my knees (I’ve had four knee operations). A bonus has been the ability to “sprint” during the high intensity workouts, something I have not been able to do outside on the road in years.
My wife, who also loves to run/walk , tried it on a recent rainy day (we’re set up in our garage) and was immediately sold. She rides as often as I do. Our adult son had the same experience and reaction!
I tested the Schwinn Air Bike Pro before I bought my Cascade Air Bike. The Cascade bike is quieter and is a much more solidly built bike – no comparison
I also much mention the great Customer Service. I had a couple of questions and John got back to me in a day or less. You’re not just buying a bike. You get a company that stands behind their products.
Don’t hesitate to buy this bike. You will have a great experience!
I have used this bike for 2 months and am very happy with it. Since I am short (5’2″) it is tricky (but possible) to find the correct seat position and height adjustment so that I can comfortably reach the pedals and arm handholds at the same time. Most exercise equipment is designed for taller people! I was able to try it out in person at Coast Fitness in Riverside. The seat is comfortable. My favorite feature is the breeze of fresh air generated by the blades on the wheel. I am 65+ retired woman with worn out knees and this is a great way to get my exercise.
Recently purchased this bike from Total Fitness and we love it. Smooth ride, easy to use controls, and the seat/handlebar adjustments are simple. Thrilled with the digitally controlled (push of a button) resistance feature, so much better than putting on the turns manually! Wish we bought it sooner!
