The Concept 2 Dynamic rowing machine is the newest machine in the popular series, joining the Model D and the Model E, two of the highest rated rowers on the market today.
The Dynamic features the advanced Performance Monitor 5, providing your calories, watts, speed, pace and distance in various formats, as well as Games and Racing capability.
Let's take a closer look at the specs...
The Concept 2 Dynamic rower is an exciting new model in the series, built to more closely mimic a natural on-water feel. If the popularity of the other two rowing machines is any indication, the Dynamic is sure to be a hit, especially with more serious rowers.
This motion is much closer to how you would move if you were rowing a boat out on the water, making it the ideal choice for competitive rowers.
Another difference on the new Dynamic is the high-strength Dyneema cord that attaches to the flywheel. The Model D and E have a nickel-plated steel chain. The cord provides an even smoother motion, and typically requires less maintenance than a chain.
It is much more compact than either of the other two models, at 76" in length as opposed to 96" on the D and E. That's a big difference and something to consider if your space is limited.
All of the Concept 2 rowers are top of the line and designed to provide the ideal rowing experience. They consistently get top ratings from experts and positive reviews from users, which is why they are consistently best sellers year after year.
The Dynamic rower continues that tradition, advancing the line even further with a model geared toward the most demanding rower.
As far as prices, the Dynamic is the most expensive model, but not by much. It is currently priced at $1250 at the company website plus the cost of shipping. The Model E is a little cheaper at $1100 and the Model D even more so at $900.
Although that might sound expensive for a rowing machine, it's really a bargain for the quality you get. Concept 2 rowers are high-end machines that are built to last. It doesn't get any better than this.
The Dynamic rower is definitely a welcome addition to the Concept 2 family, providing an even more real water experience for users.
If you row competitively, this is the ideal training tool for you. For casual users or even serious rowers who aren't necessarily competing, you'll be perfectly suited with the Model D or Model E for a few hundred less.
You can't go wrong with a Concept 2 rowing machine...period. It's the Rolls Royce of rowers, without the exhorbitant price.
