Concept 2 Model E Rower – PM5

The Concept 2 Model E Rower is a slight adaptation of the Model D, featuring the same PM5 Performance Monitor (with a longer arm), ergonomically designed handles, adjustable foot-rests, and efficient flywheel design. One of the key differences is the Model E's raised 20" seat height (6" above the Model D position), which can allow athletes with balance or mobility concerns to get on and off the machine with less effort. The chain housing on the Model E Rower is also fully inclosed, helping keep the nickel-plated chain clean and out of harm's way.

During use, the rower's seat moves on an aluminum rail with a stainless steel track, creating a consistent back-and-forth slide without any sudden starts or stops. To change how much air enters the flywheel housing on each stroke, you can adjust the machine's spiral damper to any setting from 1 to 10. This functions much like the gears on a bike, affecting how much energy will be needed to accelerate from one stroke to the next. When done training, you can quickly break down the rower into two segments for storage or use the included caster wheels for easy transport.

While some might associate traditional rowing exercises with upper arm strength, the Concept 2 Rower actually produces one of the more comprehensive, full-body workouts of any fitness machine in the industry—developing efficient core power and leg strength without over-taxing the back.

The Model E is mobile, and easy to store. To free up even more space add a Rogue Rower Hanger to your order. Need to protect your floors? The E-Z Kleen Vinyl Rower Mat will do the trick.

Gray Concept 2 Model E Rower - PM5 is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 6.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful cross training I have had the rower for just over a month and I already find that I am not happy if I do not get to start my day with at least a 20 minute workout. I am amazed at the different areas of my body that are getting a workout.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A very solid Rower My Concept 2, Model E Rower, with the PM5, is in my opinion the best overall and most efficient method of exercise for one to get into great cardiovascular shape. Rowing is also a great way to lose body fat. Doing timed and/or distance intervals for the number of sets one chooses sure is effective. I'm finished with doing those lengthy, constant pace, aerobics workouts on the stationary bike or stair master and not getting the results desired. Rowing works your entire body, all at once, where other exercise machines concentrate on just limited areas of the body. Be sure to learn correct rowing form before beginning. The Internet (YouTube) in my opinion has some great training videos from "Dark Horse Rowing" on this subject.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Solid Product Started rowing 4 years ago at the CrossFit gym, Model D. I purchased one for home as well, Model E. Like them both, not much difference. Workout options are endless, from intense sprints to cardio endurance. PM5 monitor is fantastic, has bluetooth connectivity with iPhone, with free ErgData app available. Online sync with Concept2 website logbook. Not bored after years on this solid piece of equipment. Built like a tank, very reliable. Comfortable enough for doing a marathon row.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Over all quality I’ve had my concept 2 for a month and could not be happier. I’m 65 and in great shape but needed more cardio resistance to go with my weight training. I don’t like jogging. The rower accomplished that.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Outstanding rowing machine My wife and I had been considering a rower for a long time and have put it off. My son who's into Crossfit had bought a Concept 2 and was very happy with it. After my wife tried our son's machine she said it felt like a quality build and had a very smooth mechanism. We selected the Model E and couldn't have asked for a better machine. The added height of the Model E was a good selection for us as my wife has a more difficult time kneeling down. We now integrated rowing into our weekly cardio routine and found the workouts more intense, less stressful on our joints and work a greater set of muscle groups.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great features -- Easy to use! I purchased the Concept 2 Model E Rower about a month ago and I am very happy! I am already down 8 lbs and can feel myself gaining more and more strength each day. It is very easy to set up and break down. The rower is more expensive than other competitors but I believe you get what you pay for. Well worth the price!
