Morrisville, VT – Just in case you’re curious, or have a competitive streak, here are the fastest SkiErg times recorded for a variety of distances since the Concept2 SkiErg was introduced in June of 2009. Some of these times come from competitive Nordic skiers; others come from the fitness/cross-training community.

Need a bit of inspiration, or at least entertainment? Pete Dreissigacker and Greg Hammond of Concept2 challenged each other to a 500m challenge on the SkiErg. You can see the lactic acid accumulation in their facial expressions. Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MLmFLzYk1Gk
Concept2 was founded by Dick and Peter Dreissigacker in 1976. Both competitive rowers and engineers, the two brothers designed and manufactured carbon fiber racing oars, then went on to create the world’s first airresistance indoor rower. The SkiErg, launched in 2009, builds upon the Dreissigackers’ love of skiing and Concept2’s years of experience in designing and manufacturing high-performance training equipment.
