Whether you are training for the Olympics or just to keep
an active and healthy lifestyle, you want your erg workouts to

you to injury.
The dynamic movement of the Slider greatly reduces the
stress and repetitive strain loading on your body, particularly
on the lower back and joints when compared to a stationary rowing machine.

why the dynamic Slider erg is fast becoming the new standard
for indoor rowers.

training and the abusive nature of testing, while
being responsive to subtle changes in technique
that make it the ideal technique trainer for rowers.

and scores are accurately comparable from machine to
The feet are together just like in a boat and the unique
dual rail design keep the rolling mechanics simple and
moving with smooth and seamless ease.
So no matter how or where it is used, the Slider is built to
last and perform beyond all expectations.
Natural Rowing Movement
While it looks like rowing, the stationary rowing
machine has less in common with the bio-dynamics of rowing
than it actually appears.
The rower’s feet are fixed in a stationary position on the
machine and the rower’s body does all of the moving.
However the likeness, it is not a natural simulation.
Rowing on the Slider is closest to what it feels like to row a boat on the water.
Just like a boat moving through the water, the Slider’s dynamic system moves back and forth beneath the rower in the same way. The rower’s feet move away, the body stays still.
This not only makes it safer for the body, but more natural and enjoyable to row.
