The resistance system is a core feature of rowers. Depending on the chosen system, the rowing motion can be regular and even or similar to rowing in nature , where the resistance varies depending on the pulling force.
Accessories such as a training computer with training programmes, a heart rate meter, a USB/PC port as well as transport wheels make for a more comfortable and effective training and contribute to positive ratings
The interaction of resistance system, running rails, seat castors, pulling rope and frame construction is extremely important for the motion sequence. A rowing machine with a smooth motion sequence provides extra joint-friendly training and increases muscle activity.
High stability depends on the construction of the frame, its weight and the floor space of the machine.
The more stable the rower, the higher the max. user weight and the more durable the machine.
Rowing machines with good stability stand more safely during intensive training with vigorous strokes.
