The resistance system is a core feature of rowers. Depending on the chosen system, the rowing motion can be regular and even or similar to rowing in nature , where the resistance varies depending on the pulling force. Accessories such as a training computer with training programmes, a heart rate meter, a USB/PC port as well as transport wheels make for a more comfortable and effective training and contribute to positive ratings
High stability depends on the construction of the frame, its weight and the floor space of the machine. The more stable the rower, the higher the max. user weight and the more durable the machine. Rowing machines with good stability stand more safely during intensive training with vigorous strokes.
The interaction of resistance system, running rails, seat castors, pulling rope and frame construction is extremely important for the motion sequence. A rowing machine with a smooth motion sequence provides extra joint-friendly training and increases muscle activity.

Short description: First Degree Fitness Viking 3 Plus Rower
The rails and the frame of the First Degree Fitness Viking 3 Plus Rower are made of American ash wood. Special about the Viking 3: The front part of the frame - compared to many other rowing machines - is made of one single piece of real wood. This makes the rower even sturdier and look great!

Sport-Tiedje Expert Review (Info)

Stylish real wood rower of excellent quality!

Unlike the First Degree Fitness Apollo Hybrid AR the First Degree Fitness Viking 3 Plus Rower is a pure real wood version; i.e. not only the rails are made of precious US ash wood but the front frame as well. Furthermore, the front frame - unlike that of many other rowing machines - is made from one single piece of real wood. The frame is formed carefully during an elaborate pocress so that it adapts to the tank in an ideal way. The real wood components are hand-made and sealed with two layers of varnish - for best protection. A reduced number of screw connections makes the First Degree Fitness Viking 3 Plus Rower tortionally highly stiff so that it does not bend even under highest pressure.
As a result, First Degree Fitness, the excellent manufacturer of the Apollo Hybrid AR, have stepped up their game once more by releasing the Viking 3!

An authentic rowing feel provided by the patented adjustable fluid resistance system

As it is the case for all First Degree rowing machines, the resistance changes automatically denpending on how hard you you pull; this allows for a very realistic feeling which is further increased by the natural sound of water. The basic resistance can be set due to the "tank in tank" system which allows beginners as well as trained athletes to find the right setting.

For those wanting the "creme de la creme" when it comes to sturdiness and a wooden rower which is highly durable - e.g. for private, club or gym use - at the same time, the high-end First Degree Fitness Viking PRO (with commercial warranty) is highly recommended.

Opinion of other customers:

en by Anonym on 5.9.2016 5 Model: FDF-V3AR
Besides of catching a cold just after mounting the rower i must say that it exceeded my expectations. It feels really rock solid and the noise, that was my biggest worry since I live in an apartment, is really so low that I can listen to radio or TV without raising the volume. Actually the noise from the park outside i... [Read more]s higher and then I live on the second floor. I've previously owned a cheaper Casall with Magnetic/Air resistance which IMHO was a lot noisier and did not have the same nice feeling while rowing. Then I have experienced Concept 2 rowers while having good rowing feel the noise is harsher than the Viking 3 AR Rower. [Show less]

Aus meiner Sicht ein wunderschönes Rudergerät - wenn auch zu einem ganz stolzen Preis! Die Verpackung war bei der Lieferung dermaßen beschädigt, dass ich Schäden bzw. Kratzer am Gerät vermutete. Bis jetzt konnte ich glücklicherweise nichts finden. Der Aufbau war relativ problemlos, wobei die Anleitung etwas seltsam auf... [Read more]gebaut ist. Nach dem Befüllen mit Wasser konnte auch gleich losgerudert werden. Der Trainingscomputer scheint seine Zwecke zu erfüllen, allerdings wäre eine bessere Erläuterung der Anbindung an einen PC / Smartphone und zusätzliche Software von Vorteil. [Show less]

Das Produkt war gut verpackt, konnte ohne Probleme aufgebaut werden. Macht einen gut verarbeiteten Eindruck. wir sind rundum zufrieden. Nicht zu viel SchnickSchnack, sondern auf das wesentliche konzentriert, nämlich rudern. Das Wasserrudern macht ein angenehmes Gereusch und TV schauen nebenher ist auch möglich. Richtig...

Sehr gutes Produkt. Aufbauanleitung, Aufbau super. Schnell und einfach. Alles hochwertige Materialien. Tolle Verarbeitung. Rudergerät sofort ausprobiert. Funktioniert super. Dieses Rudergerät ist sehr zu empfehlen.
de by Jürgen on 26.6.2019 5
Wir haben das Rudergerät leider noch nicht bei uns zu Hause, haben aber einen ersten sehr positive Eindruck beim Ausprobieren bei Sport Tiedje gewinnen können. Für uns ein tolles Design aus Echtholz mit einer perfekten Verarbeitung. Die Kaufentscheidung fiel meiner Frau und mir sehr leicht. Hervorzuheben ist die Einste... [Read more]llmöglichkeit der Ruderstärke. Durch den Zwei-Tank Mechanismus entfällt wie bei anderen Wasser-Rudergeräten das Befüllen oder Ablassen des Wassers. Wichtig für uns für die Kaufentscheidung war die direkt Ansprache des Ruderzuges. Dieser ist von Anfang an gleichmäßig, was auch für einen guten Trainingserfolg wichtig ist. In ca. 10 Tagen ist es soweit, dass wir das edle Gerät in unserer Wohnung (Stellplatz im Wohnzimmer) wedren nutzen können. Ich werde nachberichten. [Show less]
