Flywheel and Resistance (Air and Magnetic)

Our indoor rowers have a unique feature, which combines air and magnetic resistance. The R88 rower is equipped with 6 levels of resistance and can be adjusted manually with the resistance ‘dial’ located below the handle bar. The flywheel is also a fan, which generates air as you pull. The first level is all air resistance and then the magnetic resistance is engaged at level 2 and beyond. The flywheel design minimizes noise while maximizing a smooth feel.

Low Profile

The R88 sits 15” (38.1 cm) from the floor.

Storage and Mobility

The R88 features a quick release framelock mechanism, so you can easily fold the rower for storage. Built-in roller wheels allow you to roll the machine into position.

Adjustable Footrests and Comfortable Handle

The footrests on the R88 rower accommodate any foot size. You can strap your feet in with the industrial grade velcro straps to ensure no slippage during your workout. Our comfortable handle features a 10-degree bend that allows you to row with a natural arm and hand position.

Belt Drive

The Lifecore Rowers feature a ‘Belt Drive’ instead of a chain. Our philosophy is that a belt is quieter, no maintenance required, and reliable (same material as a car seatbelt).
