More rowing programs are using the Concept2 BikeErg to supplement training as well as testing for athletes.
The BikeErg has the same flywheel and Performance Monitor as Concept2's Indoor Rowers and SkiErg, bringing to cycling the strengths and features they've previously brought to rowing and cross-country skiing.
The flywheel uses air resistance to create a smooth, quiet ride that responds to your efforts. The damper is your "gearing," allowing you to adjust the feel of your ride. Unlike most stationary indoor bikes, the BikeErg has a clutch, so just like a real bike, when you stop pedaling, the flywheel keeps on spinning.
The sophisticated Performance Monitor (PM5) gives you instantaneous workout feedback, with a wide variety of displays and workouts to choose from. The PM5 is calibrated so you'll be able to directly compare your times and distances with other people, as well as track your progress.
The Concept2 BikeErg is suitable for home, gym or commercial use and is backed by a limited 2-year and 5-year warranty.
