Call for Pricing The WaterRower Natural is hand crafted in solid Ash and stained Honey Oak for consistency of color. Each rowing machine has been hand finished with Danish Oil giving a deep lustre and warmth to the wood. Product type: Rowing MachinesCompany: WaterRowerProduct tabsDescription 24 Years Strong WaterRower has been designing and manufacturing rowing machines of exceptional quality and design since 1988. Designed in the mid- 80s by Yale and US national Team Rower John Duke. Purity by Design WaterRower's overriding design philosophy achieves an extraordinary blend of form, function, design and durability. The Power of Water The WaterRower’s unique WaterFlywheel design uses an specially formed paddle to cup the moving water, reduce slippage and produce an unrivalled simulation of the benefits of rowing. Self Regulating Resistance Like rowing, the WaterFlywheel resistance varies proportional to the users intensity. The relationship between resistance and speed responds according “the rule of cubes”. The rule of cubes dictates that a doubling of speed requires an eight fold increase in power. Self Paced Also like rowing, the WaterFlywheel does not apply resistance to you, you apply work to it; you are the engine. By the “rule of cubes”, the amount of work you apply dictates the speed at which you row. From a gentle paddle to a “give it your all” workout, you are in control. Even Stroke The WaterFlywheel uses a relatively slow-moving heavy mass to generate a smooth uniform load throughout the stroke. Air resistance machines, by comparison, tend to be jerky, jarring, and uneven, fading as the resistance is overcome. Fluid Connection Like rowing, the WaterFlywheel creates a fluid connection between rower and water using a simple immersed paddle. There is no solid mechanical connection, instead the contact between the paddle face and the water acts to dampen out any mechanical feel. Ethically Produced In The U.S.A. All of WaterRower's wooden models are crafted from the finest Appalachian hardwoods sourced ONLY from replenish-able forests and are handmade in their New England factory in Warren, Rhode Island. Quality Materials Wood has been chosen due to its marvellous engineering properties, primary amongst these is its ability to absorb sound and vibration enhancing the WaterRower's smooth and quiet operation. Ash, like all woods used in WaterRower construction, is a premium hardwood with incredible longevity and dimensional stability.
