Folding Scull Rowing Machine | HCI Fitness Sprint Outrigger Compact Hydraulic Piston Rower

THCI Fitness Sprint Outrigger Scull Rowing Machinehe HCI Fitness Sprint Outrigger uses hydraulic piston resistance to simulate the natural motion of rowing on water. Hydraulic pistons are one of four types of resistance used in rowing machines. The others include magnetic resistance, water resistance and air resistance.

This rower is an alternative to the popular but considerably more expensive piston resistance Kettler Kadett Outrigger Style Rower Rowing Machine. It's priced between the Kettler and the orbital style piston resistance Stamina Body Trac Glider 1050 Rowing Machine, among the most affordable and bestselling models on the market.

Rowing machines provide an excellent aerobic workout while developing the core, back, shoulders, arms, and to a lesser degree, the legs. Rowing is a highly efficient form of exercise for building strength, developing cardiovascular fitness and losing weight.

The HCI Fitness Sprint Outrigger has a solid and stable foundation that produces very little wobble during a workout. The resistance is smooth and even throughout each rep.

There are 12 levels of hydraulic resistance, adjustable by turning a knob on each piston. The downside to this design is that knob adjustment and setting the resistance evenly on both sides can be tedious. Other adjustment features include angle of seat incline and chassis length to accommodate a wide range of user heights.

One of the most attractive features of this rower is the folding feature that reduces the size to just 11" x 39" x 20" for easy storage when not in use.

The unit comes mostly assembled and can be fully setup and ready to row within 15 minutes.
