Fitness Guru Review
Unbiased Views from Fitness Professionals
The premium end of the rowing machine market has for years been dominated by Concept 2, which has very ably set the benchmark for all other brands entering the marketplace. When I took delivery of the R100, even before assembling the product I was immediately impressed with the quality of the materials. From the aluminium glide rail to the nuts and bolts, it was clear that component spec was a priority at Infiniti. The glide rail also folds upright, which is a nice space-saving feature. During assembly, everything fitted together beautifully, I couldn't wait to give this baby a run for its money. When first I sat on the rowing machine, I immediately noticed how much more comfortable my foot positioning was, and as the seat smoothy glided across the rail, you know you are using a high quality product. It is also worth pointing out that the glide rail is long enough to enable very tall people to fully stretch their legs on the backword stroke - often a problem with other models. The resistance mechanism uses magair - a combination of magnetic and air resistance. This dramatically reduces the air noise associated with other products such as Concept, yet maintains exceptionally subtle changes in resistance as it steps up the gears.
And so on to the main difference between the Infiniti R100 and other premium rowers - the superb R100 onboard computer console. The console on the R100 represents a huge step forward: unlike competing products, resistance levels can be adjusted by the programme selected on the console - the heart rate control programmes (there are 3 different HRC options) are the best example to give, as you set your heart rate training zone, for the duration of your workout the programme continues to adjust resistance to ensure your work rate remains within your training zone. This is now a relatively common feature in treadmills, cross trainers and exercise cycles, but almost unheard ofl in rowing machines. In all there are 15 Auto Control Programmes (Preset programs that vary the magnetic resistance as you train). Also included are Pacer and Interval Programmes - the Pacer programme simulates racing or pacing against an opponent and the interval programmes take you through cycles of sprint and coast, similar to training drills practiced by competitive water rowers. The intervals can be set by time or distance. There are also 4 User Preset Programmes, allowing 4 separate users to train on this machine and keep their own unique preferences pre-programmed for easy use every time.
It is important to point out that the Heart Rate transmitter chest strap is not a standard accessory, so in order to benefit from the inetractive heart rate control element of this well-researched technology, you must be sure to buy the strap as an optional extra - if you don't, you will miss out!
I have also seen similar reviews from around the world, and also noted that the resale price of the R100 was much lower in the UK than elsewhere, which makes a refreshing change.
I have long been a Concept 2 devotee, and was doubtful that any other product would ever come close ... and then came the Infiniti R100 and R200 . The Infiniti R100 is outstanding value for money.
