The AR provides a strong, stable and high-performance rowing experience, that will help you not only improve your technique but help you reach the fitness targets you have set yourself.
Recommended for home and light commercial use, the fully auto-controlled air-magnetic resistance system offers super smooth action. By utilising both magnetic and air resistance, the rower allows you to set basic resistance whilst maintaining a smoother pulling action at any intensity.
Whilst the magnetic resistance works in the lower zone, the air resistance provides superior pulling at high intensities. Due to this functionality, users are also able to train to specific watts. For example, a watt value can set to train to.
For convenience, resistance can be controlled on the handlebar of the rower, which saves the need to stop and change it manually or on the console, the quick keys on the handle will do this for you, which in turn allows you to keep rowing. In total, there are 16 different levels of resistance to choose from, depending on how easy or hard you wish your session to be. Or indeed, switch it up, the choice is totally yours.
Built with durability and robustness in mind, the strong rower frame and extra-strong aluminium beam, ensures that the rower is not only stable during use but will stand the test of time. The padded seat for comfort is extremely smooth during use and will help to keep you focused on your workout.
A new and improved easy-fold system has been implemented, with a safety-pin locking feature that will prevent you from having to use your knee to fold the rower down. Once folded the AR can be easily stored out of the way.
The AR footrests have been brought closer together to offer users that authentic rowing experience that they would feel on the water. The footplates are easily adjustable to allow for users of different sizes to use it.
Like most rowers on the market, the large LCD on-board console keeps users updated with their real-time stats. The console is both easy to operate and easy to read.
With the option to choose between target and interval programs, you can be assured to have variety in your training.
Interval training will allow you to set a desired time to work then rest over a certain time period. This could be row for 30 seconds / rest for 10 seconds over the space of 10 minutes. These types of workouts are great for quick / high intensity type rowing.
Target training programs are fun to train with and also allow you to have some friendly challenges against friends or family members. With target training you can set the rower to a distance of say 500m and then see how quickly you can hit that time. Some users may wish to set a higher distance say over 5000m to improve their stamina.
The console will display all the usual stats you’d expect to see; time, distance, strokes per minute, RPM, watts, calories, pulse, resistance level, strokes and time per 500m.
The AR is compatible with heart-rate receivers ( sold separately).
