Rowing with a Fluid Rower sounds, feels and looks like you are on the water thanks to the high-quality water tank with patented Twin Tank technology. This unique system easily lets you adjust the resistance of the water at any time using the dial.
A Fluid Rower’s water tank consists of two separate tanks: an inner tank and an outer tank. The inner tank is the ‘passive tank’ or storage tank, while the outer tank is the ‘active tank’ or resistance tank. If you select a higher resistance with the dial while rowing, the water is moved from the passive tank to the active tank. As a result, you experience more resistance after a few rowing strokes.
If you choose a lower resistance, the water is siphoned from the active tank back to the passive tank so you experience less resistance after a few strokes.
With most other rowing trainers with water resistance, people experience uneven resistance. This is because there is hardly any resistance at the start of each rowing stroke, a spike occurs right in the middle and the resistance disappears again at the end. Fluid Rowers have an ‘instant catch’ thanks to a modification in the blade of the water tank. This means that resistance is felt continuously with every rowing stroke, from start to finish.
