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
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.
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.

Darwin RM50 rowing machine with water resistance

Joint-friendly full-body training at the best price-performance ratio

  • Home training is just like being on open water Authentic rowing feeling, thanks to water resistance
  • Practical structure Small installation dimensions for space-saving storage
Figure: Versatile and authentic rowing training
Versatile and authentic rowing training
The Darwin RM50 combines versatile full-body training with the relaxing training atmosphere of real rowing. Thanks to the water resistance system and the pleasant sound of the water, you can practically feel the lake below you. Another advantage here: you determine the resistance yourself through your tensile strength. You can switch between intensities as you wish and set different training stimuli without having to make settings on the device. The RM50 rowing machine is therefore just as suitable for beginners as it is for ambitious athletes.
Figure: Flexible and smart console
Flexible and smart console
The swivelling console can be adjusted in height and angle according to your needs and records all relevant training data. Calorie consumption, distance in metres, beats per minute or, when connected to a separately available chest strap, your heart rate, are clearly shown on the display. You can also choose between different training programmes. For example: you can compete with a computer opponent in a race or control your workout using heart rate zones. This allows you to make your rowing training even more varied and efficient.
Figure: Raised sitting position for extra comfort
Raised sitting position for extra comfort
With a seat height of 43 cm, you can sit comfortably on the Darwin RM50 and get off again easily. This is a bonus when compared to many other rowing machines that have a low seat height, especially after long and intense training sessions. Last but not least, this offers older people a notable advantage. The Darwin RM50's ergonomically-designed footrests ensure a firm and secure grip as you glide smoothly over the rails.
Figure: Huge benefits in a small space
Huge benefits in a small space
As versatile as the Darwin RM50 rowing machine is, in terms of its training spectrum and holistic effect on the body, it also boasts a practical and elegant structure. In the upright position, it only takes up an area of 85 cm x 56 cm, so you can find a place for it in practically any living room. In addition, the combination of the blue water tank against the black frame and rail gives the RM50 an elegant, futuristic design, which is also visually pleasing.

Darwin Fitness RM50 rowing machine – experience that real rowing feeling at home

The Darwin RM50 is a rowing machine with a modern design that uses water resistance. This makes the rowing sensation you experience on the RM50 very close to the natural rowing feeling you get when you are out on open water. You also hear the sound of water as you train. This creates a particularly pleasant and relaxing atmosphere during your workout. When training with a water resistance system, you determine the intensity or resistance yourself using your pull strength. The faster you pull, the more strenuous your rowing workout will be. This not only makes the RM50 the ideal fitness device for beginners and advanced users, it also enables you to do a wide range of exercises, for example for sustained interval training. Their movement force is transferred to the water via a three-bladed rotor. The additional rotor blade makes the movement more even and there is no so-called dead point (no resistance) at the end of the movement.

Comfortable and versatile

Thanks to its sophisticated, ergonomic design, the RM50 is also quite comfortable to sit on. The training computer is very easy to use and its angle and height can be adjusted to suit your needs. All important training data such as row strokes / minute, training time, calorie consumption or heart rate (chest strap required) are shown on the swivelling LED display. You can also set a variety of programmes. For example, you have the option of racing against a computer opponent or setting a heart-rate zone. And of course, you can just go rowing.

Comfortable getting on and off, thanks to the raised sitting position

A particular advantage of the Darwin RM50 is its higher sitting position of 43 cm. This makes getting on and off particularly easy, especially after strenuous exercise. This is also a big plus for older people looking for the right rowing machine. Even after your workout, the Darwin RM50 offers you a practical extra: the rowing machine can simply be stood on end to save space. So you don't have to use a difficult folding mechanism to stow the rowing machine away. When stood on its end, the RM50 only takes up an area of 85 cm x 56 cm.

With the RM50, you get a good rowing machine for regular training sessions at an affordable price.

Ich habe heute mein Gerät erhalten und bin begeistert. Von der Abwicklung bis zum Transport, alles TOP. Das Gerät lässt sich leicht aufbauen und hat keine 30 min gedauert. Optisch sehr stylisch und die Funktionalität ist für mich super. ( Anfängerin). Das Gerät entspricht genau meinen Erwartungen und ich freue mich sc... [Read more]hon auf die Trainingseinheiten.

Seit dem 04.01.2021 bin ich nun stolzer Besitzer des RM50 und hatte es eigentlich als Ergänzung zum Training auf Laufband und Crosstrainer eingeplant. Eine Muskelverletzung zwingt mich aber nun, das Gerät täglich zu benutzen und ich bin restlos zufrieden. Das Gerät wird in Einzelteilen geliefert, die man letztlich am e... [Read more]igentlichen Gerätestandort zusammenbauen kann. Daher ist es auch alleine gut zu bewerkstelligen. Die Aufbauanleitung ist eideutig und läßt keine Fragen offen. Der Widerstand beim Training wirkt sehr authentisch - da ich viele Jahre auf den Rhein gerudert habe, weiß ich wovon ich spreche ;-) Zwar ist eine Änderung des Widerstands nur durch Wasserzugabe bzw. -entnahme möglich aber das ist völlig ok. Der Computer ist einfach gehalten aber bietet alle nützlichen Daten, die helfen, ein konstantes Tempo zu halten und die Schlagfrequenz direkt zu korrigieren. Kein unnötiger Schnickschnack. Nach 20 Trainingseinheiten oder 11 Stunden und 37 Minuten bin ich immer noch restlos zufrieden mit dem Gerät. [Show less]
fr by Anonym on 22.1.2021 5
Très bon produit, facile à monter, même seule, ordinateur simple d'utilisation, plutôt silencieux à l'usage, mouvement fluide et sans à coup. Il se déplace très facilement grâce aux roulettes et une fois mis à la verticale, il ne prend pas trop de place. Je suis ravie de mon achat et je recommande

Nach einer sehr guten Beratung in der Sport-Tiedje Filiale in Bochum haben wir uns für dieses Rudergerät entschieden. Trotz Corona-Lockdown wurde uns das Gerät zwischen Weihnachten und Silvester per Spedition geliefert. Das gesamte Zustellungsverfahren hat einwandfrei geklappt. Der Aufbau des Rudergeräts war verständli... [Read more]ch beschrieben, hat keine Mühe gemacht und war einfach zu erledigen. Nach einer guten halben Stunde war es einsatzbereit. Es macht einen sehr soliden und hochwertigen Eindruck und es sieht optisch sehr gut aus. Wir haben es in unserem Wohnzimmer stehen und benutzen es ausgiebig und regelmäßg. Wir wohnen in der 1. Etage im Altbau, die unter uns wohnende Familie hört nur ein leichtes Rausch-Geräusch, und das auch nur, wenn dort alles leise ist. Das Rudergerät lässt sich sehr gut handhaben, die Sitzhöhe ist wirklich sehr bequem. Was uns ein bisschen fehlt, ist die Beleuchtung des Displays. Wir haben uns eine LED-Klemmleuchte angeschafft und damit diese kleine Unzulänglichkeit behoben. Unser Fazit: ein tolles Rudergerät was bis jetzt (wir haben es ja erst seit zwei Wochen im Gebrauch)unseren Ansprüchen voll und ganz genügt und uns sehr viel Spaß macht! [Show less]
