Pros: It's no Concept 2 but is 10% the price of one. Strong frame, comfortable padded seat, rocking footrests and flywheel powered adjustable airvent. Cons: Flywheel does not keep spinning long enough for the next stroke so there is no momentum when you sprint. Highest tension setting doesn't seem high enough although using the machine for a while seems just as much a workout as on a Concept 2. Display is very basic. Overall: Good value for money.
This is my second review because Artiss did not get back to me regarding this problem. I took the machine apart and fixed the tension belt but the display has never worked. Perhaps Aritiss could have the decency to send me a display unitand I will fix that myself.
Firstly the display stopped working. Replaced battery and worked for a while. Now doesn’t show number of pulls. I accepted that and count each one myself. Now the tension has gone and it is on low resistance all the time. Very disappointed as it it only used once a day for about 30 minutes.
