The WaterRower OAK rowing machine with S4 Performance Monitor is constructed from solid Red Oak, finished with Danish oil. An evolution of the original WaterRower design, ergonomically designed and handcrafted in New England using manufacturing techniques refined over three decades.
The Rower features the latest Series IV (S4) Performance Monitor, which utilizes modern PC connectivity (via provided USB cable) to interface with rowing software including the analytical WaterCoach FIT, and online, head-to-head web-racing Netathlon and We-Row.
All of our wooden rowing machines are hand treated with danish oil and urethane to ensure a deep and lasting finish. Wood is an excellent material for this application due to its ability to absorb sound and vibration enhancing the WaterRower’s smooth, quiet operation.
Oak, like all woods used in WaterRower construction, is a premium hardwood with incredible longevity and dimensional stability.
WaterRower is committed to the environment and only source wood harvested from sustainably managed forests where growth exceeds removal by 229%
