Product Description

With unrivaled function and durability, the Concept2 Model E Indoor Rower is the machine of choice for people and athletes of all ages and ability. While similar to Concept2's Model D rower, the Model E sits up higher above the floor (20 inches, about the height of a typical dining room chair), which is optimal for those with balance or mobility issues. The Model E also comes with the PM4 Performance Monitor, and the monitor arm is fixed in place on the Model E (where it pivots on the Model D). The PM4 also includes a rechargeable battery pack and Garmin chest belt for heart rate monitoring. Whether you already row or are considering rowing to keep in shape, lose weight, cross-train for another sport, compete on the water or rehabilitate from injury or surgery, rowing is the complete exercise for you. Your whole body gets a complete workout from the efficient, rhythmic motion of rowing--arms, legs, chest, back, abs. Features and Specifications: 20 inch frame height, positioning you at a comfortable seat height. One-piece leg design offers stability and a solid feel. Nickel-plated chain for low-maintenance and a clean look. Fully enclosed chain housing keeps the chain cleaner. Powder-coated frame sealed with a clear top coat for extra durability. Light metallic gray finish with dark blue-gray accents. Long monitor arm, putting the PM4 within easy reach. Flywheel design minimizes noise, maximizes smooth feel of rowing on the water. Easy spiral damper controls feel of each pull. Ergonomic handle promotes natural arm and hand position. Aluminum rail capped with a stainless-steel track for smooth movement of the seat. Flexfoot footrests adjust for quick and easy sizing. Compact storage: Indoor rower separates easily into two parts for transport and storage. Easy assembly. Tools and illustrated instructions included. Caster wheels make it mobile. Maximum user weight: 500 pounds Dimensions: 7' 11" x 24" (L x W) Recommended workout space: 9 x 4 feet Weight: 65 pounds PM4 Monitor Features: Automatic Operation: Just start to row and the monitor turns on and gives feedback. You don't have to push a single button. Accurate tracking of performance data: distance, speed, pace, calories and watts Five display options: all data, force curve, rowing with a pace boat, bar chart and large print LogCard: Removable LogCard stores workout data and personal preferences. A LogCard is included with every PM4. USB Interface: transfer of data to PC or Mac Easy menu-driven operation: accesses a powerful list of features, including preset workouts, save favorite workouts, row against a previous performance or pace boat, play the FISH game, row with an animated rower to learn technique, review past workout results and choose from multiple language options. Heart Rate Monitoring: Built in wireless compatibility with Garmin heart rate technology (chest belt provided), offers improved transmission and eliminates interference from nearby rowers. Also compatible with Polar heart rate technology. Rechargeable Battery Pack: As you row you will actually be recharging your battery. The battery pack can also be recharged by connecting the PM4 to a PC through the USB port. Increased Memory Capacity: to allow for future expansion and features Supports Machine to Machine Racing: has the computing power to support both wireless and wired racing. No PCs needed Rowing provides superb total-body cardiovascular conditioning in a smooth impact-free exercise. A great investment, the commercial-grade Concept2 Model E Indoor Rower is supported with free online motivational tools such as the Concept2 online logbook, rowing challenges and training forum. Manufactured by the company that set the standard in rowing, the Model E is Concept2’s latest and most advanced indoor rower.

With a 20” seat height, the Model E sits 6” higher than the Concept2 Model D Indoor Rower, making it easier to get on and off. The self-calibrating Performance Monitor (PM4) displays workout data in five display options, a LogCard to record results, games and more! The PM4 (included) also features built-in wireless heart rate monitoring (chest belt provided), machine-to-machine wireless racing, a rechargeable battery pack, and increased memory capacity.

I have owned two Concept 2 rowers, the Model C and now the Model E. I donated the Model C to my parents when I "ascended" up to the Model E. Without doubt, Concept 2 has produced the world's best rower. It's built to last a lifetime of private use. And if parts are ever an issue, Concept 2 still has parts (quite cheap) for all their rowers, even the Model A! If you seriously plan to row for exercise or sport, the Model E (or any model, for that matter) will be your best investment.

I ride dirt bikes, and this machine offers the perfect workout for the areas I need help with most. Shoulders, Back and Arms. Some people say the legs get a good workout as well, but I would say that is not the case. Very little benefit to the legs, but it is easy on the knees.

Overall the Concept2 Model E is a great machine. I am glad I chose this over the Model D just for the higher stance, PM4 and maintenace free (except for oil) chain. The machine came delivered in two boxes, both of which were pretty beat up when they arrived, but nothing was damaged.

Putting the machine together took me about 30 minutes, and the instructions were OK. For the money I paid for this machine, I was hoping for a little bit better overall quality. Some of the screws did not line up really well with some of the holes for assembly. I may have even stripped one trying to get it in there, but it seems to be holding on ok. Also there is more plastic than I thought there would have been. The two main parts of the rower join together with a plastic fitting, which did not really snap together as I thought it should. This fitting I think should be metal for a more solid, secure and lasting fit. So far no problem with the plastic fitting though, but I never take it apart and stand it up either.

The action of the rower is excellent. I would like to see a bit more adjustability, as I feel like I want a bit more resistance, but can't get it. As you row harder the resistance does increase, although not as much as I would like, but still a great workout, and I am happy overall. I have the wind resistance set as restrictive as it will go, and that helps somewhat.

This is the best investment that I've ever made in a piece of exercise equipment. It will literally last a lifetime.

I was looking for a high quality indoor rowing machine, as it's one of the best workouts for your entire body. I'm so glad that I not only purchased a Concept2, but that I opted to pay the extra cost for the Model E. Since the Model E is elevated to the same level as a regular chair, it's much easier to get in and out of than the Model D. This is of particular importance if you have any issues with mobility or if you're elderly. In my case, due to having had back surgery, it was essential that I purchased this model. It's absolutely worth the extra cost.

Since first using this rower on 04/13/2014 I've logged over 200,000 meters, which is close to 125 miles. The feel of the rower is exquisite. Since it's made of such high quality materials, using it is all but effortless. The seat slides along the monorail in near total silence and the fan noise is minimal. I listen to music while rowing and find that the noise of the machine isn't an issue at all. My routine is to use the rower for 1 hour a day, 5 days a week. It has an adjustable flywheel, however setting it to a higher number(between 1 & 10), does not necessarily mean that you're getting a better workout. The main factor in getting an effective workout is determined by how rapidly you row. So, you could set the flywheel to 10 and do a very slow workout, or set in to a lower number and actually get a better workout. Personally, I have mine set at 4 which enables me to get a tremendous workout without the risk of sustaining any injuries from overexertion.

I have my rower on top of a rubber mat, although the company says that this is unnecessary.

Let me start by saying I rowed 25+ years ago in college for two years and logged in hundreds of hours (very rough estimate) on the original Concept models (I believe they are now referenced as A and B). Older now and still relatively healthy (but heavier), and likely having a genetic predisposition to my Dad's arthritis (he had both hips and knees replaced), I was looking to supplement my biking with a low impact / high calorie burning exercise. Now, in my two years of college rowing I enjoyed the early morning workouts on the water and the weekend regattas but didn't care for the rowing machines. It just wasn't fun. So when I considered this purchase, I didn't have a problem with the price (I knew it was a durable machine that wouldn't have to be replaced) or doubt the results the exercise would generate (low impact, works out almost every muscle in the body). My concern was, like college, I wouldn't want to use the machine and it would just collect dust. If that were the case, I could buy a cheaper treadmill that is far more practical for hanging clothes coming out of the dryer. After much thought, I purchased the Model E knowing I needed to get in shape and keep the arthritis at bay (Model E sits higher, easier to exit when I get older). For now, I work out for 20 minutes, three times a week, pulling harder with each workout. I'm definitely more fit, clothes are getting looser, etc. So I'm very pleased with the purchase and results. A couple of points: I've spent many hours on both the water and Concept machines and I could teach you everything I know about rowing in 5 minutes. You don't need to be nearly as precise on the machine as you do on the water (RE: Legs > Torso > Arms > Catch). Watch a couple of Youtube videos and you'll learn good enough form to get a nice workout.Read more ›
