The WaterRower rowing machine is unsurpassed in terms of design refinement. Its patented WaterFlywheel design emulates rowing like no machine before it. Smooth, silent and storing conveniently upright the Water Rower is perfect for any user and in any environment. The Water Rower's unique patented WaterFlywheel has been designed to emulate the dynamics of a boat moving through water.
When rowing the workout is generated by overcoming the effect of drag as the boat moves through the water. So with the WaterFlywheel the workout is generated by overcoming the effect of drag as the water moves past the tank.
When rowing faster you move the boat, the greater the drag and the greater the intensity of exercise required to maintain your speed. The limit to the speed you can maintain is you, your physiology. Not the machine.
Because the Water Rower's precision sprag clutch engages the instant the handle is pulled there is no jerkiness or jarring at the beginning of the stroke.
Because the Water Rower's frame is wooden much of the mechanical vibration typical of other exercise machinery is dampened.
Because the Water Rower's patented WaterFlywheel uses the same physical dynamics as rowing, its operation is equally as peaceful. Simply pull the handle and you are greeted with the sound of surging water. The noise, while not silent, is soothing to the ears and is far from intrusive.
The Water Rower's wooden frame also assists in dampening out any noise or vibration, there is no metallic clanking, just the soothing sound of running water, making the Water Rower the quietest rowing machine ever.
The WaterRower has been designed to optimize ease of storage. Simply lift one end and the machine stores conveniently upright in about the space of a dining room chair. The WaterRower's light wooden frame, the positioning of the WaterFlywheel close to the wheels, and the leverage effect provided by the rails, makes lifting almost effortless. When stored the WaterRower's patented WaterFlywheel provides a low center of gravity making the machine very stable.
Designed with an obsession for detail, the Water Rower is unmatched by any other fitness equipment. The overriding design philosophy of the Water Rower has achieved "beauty by simplicity". Every detail has been resolved to compliment the overall appearance and performance of the machine.
The WaterRower Oxbridge is hand crafted in solid Cherrywood.
Like all woods, Cherrywood may vary in color from a red-brown to deep red. The wood will darken in color with exposure to light. For this reason all WaterRower Cherrywood components are kept in light free rooms to protect from shadowing. A new WaterRower Oxbridge will therefore appear quite light in color. The wood will however darken over time reaching a rich reddish hue.
