Kettler Kadett Rowing Machine is the one to get if you are searching for a mid-ranged one. It provides you terrific workout ranges and that too with an affordable price. The hydraulic resistance will make life easier for senior citizens with next to nothing noise and great user experience. Details about the features of this rower is put in our Kettler Kadett Rowing Machine review below.
Features of the Rower from Kettler
The machine has a steel frame coated with carbon. It is made to ensure sturdiness when you are having intense workout sessions. The coating will also ensure the machine lasts long without that much of maintenance. It utilizes the hydraulic resistance system which helps the Kettler Kadett Rowing machine to mimic rowing on water. The machine has 12 different resistant levels. It will feel like you are sculling on water. When it comes to building up stamina, sculling helps a lot even if you are not rowing.
Comparing to all the “Single Arm” rowing machines, Kettler Kadette Rowing machine is better because you can adjust resistance levels on each arm separately. The machine comes with a display console which provides all the data you will need to evaluate your progress. Things you can track with this machine are: your pulse rate, the energy consumed while exercising, the time you rowed for, the stroke speed of yours and more. The special Earlobe Clip Sensor of Kettler Kadett Rowing Machine measures your heartbeat as well. You can also add a chest strap and a monitor to go with it as well.
The Issue of Comfort with the Machine
Kettler Kadett is equipped with a padded seat for comfort while rowing. The seat protects you with cushioning for those hefty workout sessions. There is a monorail and the seat rolls over it with wheels. There is a minor noise of rolling over but you can apply lubricants to reduce or eradicate the noise. It offers lifetime warrantee on the steel frame and a 3-year warrantee on parts. So, it is a mid-ranged Rower with great facilities to give your workout regime a much needed boost
The Negative Side of the Rower
The Kettler Rowers are good and from a German company which has a reputation to protect. Even then you will come across few blemishes in the product. Such as the assembly process. It does say that assembling this machine takes 45 minutes or less in the manual. But If you are doing it alone, it can eat up 2 hours of your time. The manual is in German and you’ll need good translation skills to decipher it.
There is also a problem regarding the handlebars of the product. The handles may be smooth and textured to avoid slip-ups but around the edge, the handlebars are still slippery. It can lead to unpleasant accidents for the users. To counter the accidents, you will need a pair of sports gloves that will work best for you.
My Own Experience with this Product
The Kettler Enterprises have good reputation and they are producing Rowers from 1994. The Kettler Kadett rowing machine is also a great product despite few minor blemishes. With all the emphasize on exercise types and ease of use, it requires minimum maintenance. The machine has a weight limit of 285 lbs. which is perfect for me and as I am 6 feet tall, the machine also supports my lower body and the back very well. I can safely say, this product will last a lifetime and even if something happens by chance, you’ll have it covered with the warrantee period that has been mentioned.
