Rogue Echo Bike
The Rogue Echo Bike will destroy your world and build it back up again. Every session on this tank of an air bike will make you realize there’s always more work to do. For the price, there isn’t a better option on the market.
Incredibly well-built. It will last for years.
Quiet (for an air bike).
LED display provides quick and efficient feedback.
The seat is easily adjustable both up/down and forward/backward.
None that we have discovered.
We might be going a little overboard by saying there’s nothing not to love about the Rogue Echo Bike, but it’s also a true statement.
In true Rogue Fitness fashion, this machinery is built to last, even while taking a pounding during high-intensity interval training.
When we first unpacked the Echo Bike, it was clear that Rogue paid much attention to every little aspect of the build.
Rogue Echo Bike Assembly
The bike arrived in a well-packed single box and took us about 30 minutes to install.
The installed handles on our unit felt wobbly, but we quickly realized that we hadn’t properly aligned and tightened the handles. The handles meet at the connecting point where they intersect the air bike’s footrests. Once we properly tightened down all parts of the bike, it was immediately clear that Rogue, once again, overbuilt its equipment.
It should take about 30 minutes to set up your air bike. The main part of the unit comes already built, so it’s just a matter of adding the wheels, adjustment nobs, the main LED display, the foot pegs and seat, and a few other small components.
Rogue Echo Bike Design
Made with heavy-duty steel and coated with Rogue’s signature tough powder coat finish, the Echo Bike takes the air bike concept to the next level. I’m more than two years into using my Echo Bike, and the powder coat is still immaculate.
Because of its heavy steel frame, the bike comes in at a heavy 127 pounds. That weight and build factor allow for support up to 350 pounds.
The bike might be heavy, but the wheels on the front base and a built-in handle on the back base allow for easy maneuvering of the Air Bike.
The feet that come with the Echo Bike are easy to adjust, a big positive because we move around equipment constantly in our home gym, and our flooring is slightly unbalanced in our garage testing facility.
When we need to adjust the feet on the air bike, it takes about 10 seconds to level the bike. We also recommend buying turf tires for the fan bike. The tires make the bike easier to maneuver thanks to their size and an included handle that’s easier to grab and hold.
The turf tires are also a great addition if you plan on rolling your Echo Bike outside on a nice day.
One of our favorite aspects is the noise level offered by the Rogue Echo Bike; even under the heaviest of use, it’s shockingly quiet, minus the sound of its fan..
Rogue has implemented a belt-driven fan blade made from high-grade steel, which is smooth and incredibly consistent. The belt system is auto-tensioning, meaning less maintenance than similar chain-driven systems from Assault, Schwinn, and other manufacturers.
The stitching on the bike’s seat is solid, and it’s a comfortable option for quick interval training and sustained endurance exercises.
The Rogue Echo Bike offers an easily adjustable seat that moves up and down and back and forth. Easy seat adjustments are fairly standard on today’s best air bikes, and Rogue keeps the process quick and effortless.
Remember, you’ll want to tighten the seat’s easy adjustment knob tightly to avoid any issues with wobbling. The bike matches fairly closely to what we’ve witnessed with the assault bike and Schwinn airdyne models.
Rogue Echo Bike Display
The unit’s simple LED display, which requires aa batteries to operate, provides all the necessary information for your training.
The displays include tracking options for intervals, distance, calories burned, heart rate, etc.
Heart rate syncing is performed automatically with the help of your chosen Bluetooth heart rate transmitter.
We have various workout routines commonly used on different days; thankfully, setting our interval times and repetitions takes about 10 seconds.

We could harp on all day about how much we love the Rogue Echo Bike, but instead, we’ll leave that up to the reviewers in the videos we’ve embedded below.
You can also learn more about the Rogue Echo Bike and several attachments on the official Rogue Echo Bike product page, including the wind block and cup holder.
Because we know the place of origin matters to some buyers, we’ll note that the Echo Bike is made in China. That said, the material and workmanship are right on point for Rogue-owned products.
