The Designer Series is comprised of the premium level WaterRower Rowing Machines including the "Oxbridge
", "Classic", and "S1". Designer Series rowers are crafted from premium materials such as hardwood including cherry and walnut, as well as brushed stainless steel. Each WaterRower Rowing Machine
is proudly handcrafted in America.
The WaterRower Oxbridge
is hand crafted in solid Cherry wood. Like all woods, Cherry wood 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 Cherry
wood 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.
Each machine has been hand finished with three coats of Danish Oil giving a deep lustre and warmth to the wood. Cherry wood has been chosen due to its marvelous engineering properties, primary amongst these is its ability to absorb sound and vibration thus enhancing the WaterRower
's quietness and smoothness of use.
Cherry wood, like all woods used in WaterRower
construction, is a premium hardwood with incredible longevity and dimensional stability.
For reasons of ecology, all our woods are harvested from replenishable forests.
WaterRower… Powered by You
’s unique WaterFlywheel has been designed to reproduce the precise physical dynamics of a moving boat; the surest way to replicate the physiological benefits and aesthetic pleasure of rowing.
Many rowing machines imitate the action of rowing but they do so mechanically and often lack the natural dynamics experienced when in a boat. The WaterFlywheel’s uniform mass produces a constant effort through the whole stroke, spreading the work more evenly over the muscle groups. Water is 800 times denser than air, and there is therefore no need for extraneous adjustments.
Self regulating resistance varies according to the Rule of Cubes (doubling the speed will require an eight-fold increase in power), resistance is therefore infinite and infinitely variable.
