Re: Xebex rower/air bike

I bought one of each from Mike to test out in the FringeSport WFS gym. They're an interesting entry into the airbike / rower competition.

I've put them through some hard use, and they are definitely beefy/well made. I've got some quibbles with them, but I'll keep them to myself- Mike's been gracious enough to provide (sell) them to me, a competitor, and I don't want to air any minor criticisms publicly.

However, do note that the rower displays/counts differently than C2s do.

Re: Xebex rower/air bike

I have yet to use the rower, however I do have the bike and will have my review of it up on my site by next week. The frame is essentially the same thing as the Assault bike, I really can't find any differences. The only differences that I've found is the components, handles, arms, are beefier. And they have different monitors. It's a tough bike.

Not to take up for a product I have never used, but I think we ALL have quibbles about every product. I have seen some about the Air Assault Bike, and I have seen some about the C2 Rowers. At the end of the day Schwinn screwed us by stopping production on the Airdyne.

Re: Xebex rower/air bike

I finished my review of the Xebex Air Bike. My main takeaway from using it, is it's essentially the same as the Assault Bike , with a few different features, most of them are heavier duty.

You can find it here:

Also, this is my personal site. If this is against any rules Admin, please let me know and I will remove it.

Great review, Cooper!

Hervin - If you're unable to get any feedback here that you're looking for. Shoot me an e-mail at Michael@GetRXd.com! I can put you in touch with some affiliate owners that have both our Xebex Rower and Air Bike!

Re: Xebex rower/air bike

Honestly I'd love to see some good competition for rowers pop up. C2 wholesales those for almost the same as the retail price, so the instant a good alternative comes out, I'd be very interested.

Re: Xebex rower/air bike

Does anyone know if the Xebex rower would be allowed to be used in the CF Games Open?

@Steven I doubt it:

From Getrxd's site (WFS)

@Ryan I know, right? On the plus side, Concept2 does put out a really strong product and does treat the end users well (contrast with Nautilus, e.g.)
