Rowing is one of the few non-weight bearing sports that exercises all the major muscle groups, including quads, biceps, triceps, lats, glutes and abdominal muscles. Rowing improves cardiovascular endurance and muscular strength.
So why water resistance?
Water has unique “cube rule” physical properties, which means that to go twice as fast through it requires 8 times the effort!
So as the athlete increases workout intensity, the Fluid Technology resistance unit responds instantaneously. No slack, no slippage, no flat spots, just full on resistance, in an instant, always there for you at the precise moment you want it!
Every competitive rower knows the feel of the cube rule, and just how tough it can be to squeeze that tiny extra bit of speed out of the boat in the race to the line.
And that’s why we say that Fluid Technology gives you the nearest thing to real on-water rowing.
The patented Fluid Technology variable resistance system makes ingenious use of a twin-chamber tank.
Water can be transferred to and from the two chambers by means of a lever or dial operation. Water in the outer chamber provides resistance to paddles when rotated by the pulling force of the user. Any water in the inner chamber “passive” chamber does not provide resistance. Thus the resistance can be varied through the water level in the outer tank and the effort of the user.
