Concept2 Releases SkiErg

FasterSkierJune 12, 2009

Concept2, the maker of the renowned Concept2 Indoor Rower, has released the SkiErg, a double pole machine modeled on the rowing version. An ergometer (or “erg”) is a device that measures work. That’s what sets the Concept2 SkiErg apart from others: it allows you to accurately assess your output, monitor your progress, and compare your scores with others using the Concept2 Performance Monitor. It’s the same monitor that has been helping rowers train for many years:

  • Immediate, accurate and repeatable performance data
  • Preset workouts, ski against a previous result, or play a game
  • Memory and LogCard for workout data storage
  • USB Interface to transfer data to PC or Mac
  • Heart Rate Monitoring (Polar and Suunto options available)

The SkiErg features:

  • Performance Monitor
  • Smooth pull with a quick return
  • User-controlled intensity
  • Adjustable handle straps
  • Air-resistance flywheel: the harder you pull the more resistance you feel
  • Available for wall mounted or free standing installation

The Concept2 SkiErg is currently available for sale at

FasterSkier will have a full review of this product next week.
