This "market leader" rower keeps its promises: quality item, robust, easy to assemble, fluid. The software provided is in tune: simple and effective. In addition the electronics are very powerful and the connectivity with your mobile devices perfect.
If you look at the characteristics of this article, it is because you know its capacities and technicalities and indeed everything responds perfectly to what is indicated .

In short, the quality of the rowers of this brand is well established, professionals use it and it is not for nothing. We can therefore say that there is the Concept2 rower and all the others. For those who are used to using this brand indoors, you will find the same sensations or even better, the rower being new.

This is a rather expensive item. But you should know that it is above all an ergonometer. sold under the denomination of "rower", intended for sportsmen practicing the activity on the water.
If you plan to buy a rower, and if you intend to use it frequently, invest for the long term. I would strongly advise you to save a little longer to afford this model, rather than buying lower-end devices, certainly cheaper, but which will have a shorter lifespan…

A balance sheet very positive therefore, since this rower fully meets our expectations. It is an almost pro rower that, you will understand, we recommend with closed eyes.
