The Slider has been designed to be the ultimate rowing machine for rowers. However the best equipment should not be for rowers only. Our aim was to go well beyond the expectations of rowers and design a rowing machine that everyone can use and for good reason, your body.
Air resistance Indoor Rower models use fanlike air-fins on the flywheel to provide the flywheel braking needed to generate resistance. As the flywheel is spun faster, the air resistance increases.
A vent can be used to adjust the airflow to the air fins and thus increase or decrease the resistance. The energy dissipated can be accurately calculated given the known moment of inertia of the flywheel and a tachometer to measure the deceleration of the flywheel. Air resistance rowing machines are most often used by sport rowers (particularly during the off season and inclement weather) and competitive indoor rowers.
