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.
Due to the current situation and the high demand on the market, all WaterRower rowing machines are unfortunately experiencing delivery bottlenecks. Production in the USA continues as usual, but the produced quantities unfortunately do not meet the high demand. We expect availability to improve again in the next few weeks. As the largest internation distributor of WaterRower we have ordered early on in large quantities. We'll gladly accept your order but unfortunately are unable to provide a concrete delivery time.

Description: WaterRower rowing machine A1

Fitshop Expert Review (Info)
The rowing machine A1 is the entry-level rowing machine by WaterRower which on the one hand features totally new elements (e.g. aluminium monorail design), and on the other hand features renowned quality components which premium Waterrower rowing machines are made of. As of late, the rail (monorail) of the WaterRower rowing machine A1 is made of high-quality aluminium; the front part of the WaterRower rowing machine A1 frame is made of sweat- and water-resistant solid ash wood. As the case for all WaterRower rowing machines, the Waterrower A1's resistance is generated by a water wheel. The resistance adjusts itself automatically depending on how much force is applied: The harder you pull, the greater the resistance. The sound created by the Waterrower when in use is pleasant and quiet and makes the user feel as if he/she was actually rowing on water. The computer of the WaterRower rowing machine A1 has fewer functions than those of the premium Waterrower rowing machine, i.e., when exercising with the A1 rowing machine by Waterrower the heart rate cannot be measured directly and the rower cannot be connected to a PC. Apart from that, the computer's LCD display shows all important exercise parameter such as number of strokes, intensity, duration, distance, energy consumption, and Watts.

Der Zusammenbau gelingt relativ Leicht, erfordert aber auch Geduld. Ist der Wassertank dann gefüllt hat man schlicht und einfach ein tolles Gerät vor sich stehen.

Parfait pour se mettre au sport avec plaisir. Le bruit de l'eau est très agréable, le bruit du siège est très leger.

Der Zusammenbau gelang schnell u problemlos, auch das Einfüllen des Wassers mit der mitgelieferten Pumpe. Es ist mein erstes Rudergerät mit Wasserantrieb - wenn man sich daran gewöhnt hat, dass man keinen Widerstand einstellen kann, ist es super zum Verwenden. Das Wassergeräusch ist äußerst angenehm und ich empfinde es... [Read more] nicht als störend oder zu laut. Auch der Sitz auf der Schiene gleitet bedeutend leiser als ich es gewohnt bin. Das Gerät ist sowohl für Anfänger (meine Freundin), als auch für Fortgeschrittene (ich selbst) sehr gut geeignet. Aufgestellt braucht es wirklich wenig Platz und stört nicht. Durch die Rollen ist es schnell am gewünschten Ort platziert, unkomplizierter als mit meinen bisherigen Geräten. Auch optisch macht es einiges her und kann durchaus als Deko-Objekt bezeichnet werden. Bis jetzt kann ich keinen negativen Punkt anmerken (In Gebrauch seit ca. einem Monat). Was vielleicht noch interessant ist: Ich bin 1,95m groß und habe noch ein paar wenige cm Spielraum. [Show less]
