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 rugged features such as a one-piece leg design, glossy finish top coat, and fully-enclosed chain housing, the Model E is recommended for high-use facilities, individuals looking for the latest and greatest, and those who prefer a higher seated position. 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. Every Concept2 Indoor Rower comes with a 30-day money back guarantee and limited 2-year 5-year warranty.

A very smooth machine.
Don't buy the model D. The Model E is a better machine and designed to last, it's the choice for commercial use.
Ed Deppe
In summary, this is a very high quality piece of exercise equipment.

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.

It is inconceivable that reviewers would rate this product with only one star when the issue they're having is with Amazon's shipping. They're completely irrational. Rate Amazon with one star if you don't like the shipping, not Concept2.

This product is an incredible piece of equipment. Either a model E or model D are all the cadio equipment you'll ever need. There is no substitute. This is the machine all the pros, Olympians, college and high school crews use, and for good reason.

You cannot buy a better piece of exercise equipment than a Concept2.

After a bunch of research, and lots of trial and error testing others. This one is by far the best i have used in years.
Extreamly easy to put together, every part fit perfect. the instructions on line on how to use all of the available applications is termedious.
Now after both my wife and I have been using it for close to a month it was about time to write this review.
It keeps perfect track of each and every work out for both of us and so easy to down load.
The running total for each of us gives you a real good sense of how many clicks, ( Meters ) you have rowed
As we workout even more with this new peice of equipment we will keep you posted on any pro's and con's.
To date Only All pro's, not a single negitive issue has popped up to date. .
And if you need to break it down for room when you have company over down in our Game room thats also has a hide a bed in the couch, it's so easy with just a lift of the one latch and you now have 2 parts taking up half the space.
The interface with your lap-top and interfaced with the TV ( Wi-Fi ) is remarkable, it's like being with others in real time. And the sound is fantsatic with Suround Sound from the Plasma..
Work out for life, as if your life depended on it.

I have had the Concept2 model C for over 6 years and still use it 3 to 4 times a week. My company recently got the model D in the office gym and it does have some improvements. Most noticeably the machine is a bit quieter and the electronics are more advanced (although, as has always been the case with concept2 rowers, the electronics can be upgraded to the latest for a reasonable fee).
While I don't see a need to run out and upgrade my home machine I do think the new model is an improvement.
In addition to being a great product, it is backed by a great company. They go out of their way to make rowing safe, and fun, with informative newsletters, regular chalenges and competitions, excellent support, online rowing logs, rankings, and races.

I splurged for the Model E for two reasons: #1 I was afraid that I would have trouble getting on and off the Model D because it is so low to the ground. #2 I wanted to have the PM4 with the wireless heart monitor chest belt included. As it turned out, Amazon had a scratch-n-dent model for the same price as the Model D with PM4 monitor.

I honestly can't comment on the height issue, but I find this model very easy to mount and dismount.

As for the extra space it takes up when stored (as opposed to the Model D), I don't bother to separate the two pieces when I'm done. I just lift the rear and stand it on its nose. It is about 3" shorter than my ceiling, and I tuck it into a nook in the exercise room that used to contain a recliner. The user manual says it may be unstable when stored this way, but it doesn't appear to be in danger of falling over to me. If I do believe it might fall over, I'll drive a screw-eye into a joist in the ceiling and hook a safety chain to the unit to keep it steady.

The workout provided by this machine is incredible! I downloaded a copy of RowPro and am using it as a trainer for its 20-day free trial. Very, very good software.

While noodling around the web site, I found that Concept2 provides a software development kit (SDK) for the PM3 and PM4 monitors. This allows users to develop their own applications to interface the rower to their PC. Even more fun for this geek!
