Concept2 Model E Rowing Machine Review
The Concept2 Model E rowing machine stands out from other rowers on the market because of its luxury and durability. This rower stands higher off the ground than other indoor rowing machines. This provides more comfort when getting on and off the machine, which is especially great for those with bad knees or limited mobility. This model also has all of the great features of the Model D rower that make it one of the most durable rowers on the market, plus many more luxury features.
Each Model E rower comes with a PM4 performance monitor to track your progress accurately and efficiently. The PM4 comes with a chest strap that wirelessly transmits information to the PM4 to monitor your heart rate. The PM4 also has the capability to be upgraded to whatever features come out through Concept2 in the future, unlike the PM3. The longer monitor arm is another aspect that makes this monitor much more convenient. The Model E also has a seat height of 20 inches, compared to the Model D’s height of 14 inches. This makes it easier to get on and off the machine.
Resistance and Storage Features
Like the Model D rower, the Model E features a flywheel and a damper to control the resistance needed. You adjust the damper to control the amount of airflow, thus adjusting the resistance. The flywheel design also ensures that this machine is quiet. The Model E also features a framelock mechanism that is quick-releasing. This makes the Model E very safe and easy to use or store. This means that no tools are required and you can easily separate the machine into two pieces for storage. There is no need for the rower to be taking up unnecessary space while not in use. The front foot has caster wheels, providing an easy way to move the machine when it is not in use. The many features available on the Model E make it one of the best rowing machines we reviews in 2016.
Concept2 rowers are known for durability and reliability and the Model E is no exception. It features a nickel-plated chain, which means more time between oiling and the chain is fully enclosed. This is great because it means less maintenance and upkeep for you. The aluminum monorail is topped with a stainless steel track, which ensures a smooth, gliding seat movement. The Model E also has a one-piece design for both the front and rear legs, providing a more solid and sure feel. The handle is another awesome feature that was designed with comfort in mind. It has a 10 degree bend to provide the most natural arm and hand position for a comfortable row. Another feature that helps you customize the Model E is the adjustable footrests. These adjustable footrests allow for simple and quick size adjustments to fit a wide range of shoe sizes and leg measurements.
