Q:

How strict is the weight limit? I want to buy this as a Birthday gift for my weight-lifter husband. He's 280 lbs now but is on a weight loss plan to "knock off" a few pounds. I would hope he could lose 5lbs by his Bday in OCt, but, if not can he go at 280?

A:

Unfortunately not. Exceeding the weight limit could become a safety issue.
