    FIRST DEGREE FITNESS VIKING 2 PLUS ROWING MACHINE

    A popular and economical water rowing machine, the Viking 2 Plus is constructed from ethically sourced American Ash and is the perfect fitness furniture for the style-conscious home.

     

    With an instant catch and constant resistance akin with on-water rowing, this rowing machine blends form and function to support a professional rowing stroke, no matter your skill level.

     

    Boasting 4 x levels of Fluid Force for a challenging training regime, the Viking 2 Plus Reserve is built on FDF’s patented twin tank innovation. A water rowing platform unlike any other, the water churning through the precision aligned tank is captivating with its signature yellow impellers.

     

    Designed for users who care about performance, the huge range of water resistance experienced can be manually adjusted by turning a tactile and audible selector dial, assuring accurate and even level selection. Space is not an issue with the Viking 2 Plus, its small vertical footprint and concealed transport wheels means it can be stowed away with ease.

     

    Providing 15% greater resistance than standard FDF horizontal models, state of the art Fluid Resistance Technology ensures no dead spots throughout stroke entirety for a vigorous and consistent cardio session. Manually adjust your Fluid Force level at the turn of a tactile and audible selector dial, assuring accurate and even level selection for a more consistent workout.

    First Degree Fitness Patented Twin Tank Fluid Resistance Technology

    At the core of First Degree Fitness Rowing Machines is the patented Twin Tank technology, providing easy adjustment for the different levels of Fluid Resistance, from feather-light to Olympic challenge.   The  Twin Tank technology comprises the inner, passive (or holding) tank and the outer, active (or resistance) tank. Adjusting the fluid volumes, between the inner and outer tanks, changes the resistance at the turn of a dial.
     
    The patented Twin Tank system provides silky smooth resistance at any speed, so you do not have to raise your stroke rate / RPM to increase the resistance.  The uniform stroke unrivaled in its precise replication, including no lag of resistance at the catch, and continued resistance all the way to the finish.
     
    When you select a high level, water will flow from the passive holding tank to the active resistance tank as you begin to exercise, and you will experience the smooth fluid resistance, no matter what your speed.
     
    Conversely, if you select a low level, the water will be transferred away from the active resistance tank and back into the passive holding tank, lowering the resistance. You can even make adjustments on the fly to find a load that is just right for your fitness training.
     
     
    Level 1 – 25% / level 2 – 50% / level 3 – 75% / level 4 – 100%
    The water in the active resistance tank acts as a brake to hold back the multi-bladed impeller, the more water in the active resistance tank the higher the braking effect. The water in the active tank isn’t all staying in the active tank during the exercise (at any level), some of it is always being cycled through the passive holding tank. As you attempt to generate more power by increasing your speed the water cycles faster between the Twin Tanks at a greater and greater speed to maintain a consistent amount of water in both tanks. This creates such a unique smooth action and at virtually any speed.
     
    At high speeds, the two mediums, water, and air, start to feel similar except for one very crucial difference that makes adjustable fluid resistance so unique. When the drive phase of activity is followed by a recovery phase, as in rowing or ski ergometer exercises, the recovery phase air resistance does not provide the braking force that the water in our vertical tank does. At the catch or beginning of the next drive phase, the air machine impeller has high momentum and that creates a soft or no-load pickup.
     
    Essentially the resistance on an air machine can not be felt again until your speed catches up to the flywheel and you start to apply a greater force against which the air will resist. These differences are so easy for you to test for yourself. Compare the ROW against any common air resisted rowing machine. You will quickly see why our patented Twin Tank Fluid Resistance system is so smooth and consistent at virtually any speed.
     
     
    The First Degree Fitness patented Twin Tank allows variable volumes of water to move between tanks as the user makes resistance adjustments, ranging from feather-light to Olympic sprint. This is what we call adjustable Fluid Resistance.  With FDF’s patented twin tanks, you can adjust Fluid Resistance while maintaining a steady stroke rate.

    Other rowing machines and water ergometers are less flexible, with their single chamber water tank requiring the user to row much faster or slower to change resistance.
     
    The combination of a multi-bladed impeller and internal baffles within the rowing machine’s water tank, delivers a smooth uniform stroke unrivaled in its precise replication of actual on-water rowing. There is no lack of resistance at the catch, which is experienced on all other water resistance rowers; meaning that consistent resistance is delivered all the way to the finish, just like in a boat.
     
    This smoother stroke resistance profile ensures the whole body works more throughout each stroke, without the intimidating high peak resistance experienced by other water-based indoor rowing machines.
