  • It’s just like rowing on real water

This equipment really imitates real swift water rowing, unlike other equipment that makes you feel like you’re operating a robot. It’s very smooth (the rowing) and very quiet.

  • Compatible with any kind of body type

That’s right, any kind, especially tall users. Its adjustment accommodates various lengths of height.

  • Very durable

It doesn’t show potential wrecking; you won’t even see or hear small parts starting to come off, its parts fit very secure — truly made of heavy duty, high-strength material.

  • Stands strong and mighty

You can do your rowing without an uneven feeling on the bottom of the equipment. Also, it’s very easy to store as it conveniently folds perfectly.


  • Takes hours to assemble

Users average an hour and a half assembling the equipment. Its manuals are very confusing – some steps are only pictures, some are written in German.

  • Foot straps comes loose

The foot supports loosen when rowing over time. One user had to buy Velcro to fix the problem.
