The Concept 2 Model E Rowing Machine offers presence and durability with its 20-inch frame height, nickel-plated chain, and double powder coat with a glossy finish. From a practical standpoint, the higher frame means easier on-and-off for those with tired knees or mobility considerations. The nickel-plated chain requires less-frequent oiling. The finish protects against scratches.
Aesthetically, the Model E is the luxury machine of the indoor rower world. Solid and sleek, the Model E will hold its own in a fitness centre, your home gym, or the living area of your midtown loft. Best of all, it does all of this while providing the unparalleled full-body workout of our other indoor rowers.
If you’re familiar with our equipment, the Model E is everything you’ve come to expect in a Concept 2 Indoor Rowing Machine and more. If you’re trying us for the first time, the Model E will satisfy even the most discriminating buyers.
PM5 Performance Monitor for Concept 2 Rowing Machine
Every Model E includes a PM5 – our most advanced Performance Monitor, so you get accurate, comparable data for every row. The PM5 monitor uses ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart technology, so you can monitor your heart rate* without extra wires, contains games not offered on the PM3, and has room to grow, so you’ll be able to use features we haven’t even thought of yet! The longer monitor arm keeps it all within easy reach.
Flywheel and Damper
Our indoor rowers respond to your effort on every stroke, so you are in full control of your exertion and resistance at all times. The spiral damper allows you to quickly adjust the airflow to the flywheel, so you can change the feel of the stroke to suit your preference. The flywheel design minimizes noise while maximizing a smooth feel.
The Model E stands tall in a crowd. In a commercial setting, Model E users won’t be dwarfed by the surrounding ellipticals and treadmills. In a private setting, you’ll have the comfort and ease of getting on a machine that’s at chair height. The 20 inch (50.8 cm) seat height is particularly helpful if your knees don’t bend as they used to if you’ll be getting on and off the indoor rower from a wheelchair, or if you just prefer sitting higher off the ground.
Storage and Mobility
The Model E features a quick-release (no tools required!) framework mechanism, so you can easily separate the machine into two pieces for storage. Caster wheels on the front foot allow you to roll the fully-assembled machine into position.
Nickel Plated Chain and Enclosed Chain Housing
Nickel plated chain looks good and works hard. The nickel plating allows for longer periods between oiling, and the fully enclosed chain housing keeps the chain cleaner. So, even if maintenance isn’t your strong suit, the Model E will still feel silky smooth during your next workout.
More Height, More Leg
To support the 20-inch frame height, we went with a one-piece leg design for both the front and rear legs. The end result? Stability and a sure, solid feel.
Adjustable Footrests and Ergonomic Handle
We use adjustable footrests on our indoor rowers for quick and easy sizing. (Footrests accommodate a wide range of shoe sizes.) Our comfortable, ergonomic handle features a 10-degree bend that allows you to row with a natural arm and hand position.
Durable Construction That’s Easy to Maintain
Our machines are well-known for their durability and construction. Tough and built to last, our machines withstand rigorous use in boat houses, training centres, living rooms, hotels, health clubs and military bases around the world. We make sure our machines are easy to care for so you can focus on using your investment, not maintaining it.
