Viavito Sumi Folding Rowing Machine -, Sturdy piece of kit

Fairly priced and great stress control.

Lately got this rowing machine, and realy like it. First of all, i am not a profesional rower or everything like that, but i do a good volume of sport (primarily rock climbing) and wished one thing to do at home. I am not a tall person (1m70 or 5ft69 -i guess i nevertheless not get what the f*** with the feet and inch s***. ), but i am much from reaching the back of the machine so i guess it will get the job done perfeclty for anyone up to 20-25 cm taller than me (will not do the math for you). Rowing system is pretty silent, we only ear the seat sliding, so no concerns about that. Dificulties degree are ok, i guess the major one is far too gentle if you are incredibly into rowing but give a decent total of workout for me (but ought to you spend only 200£ if you want to be very critical about rowing ?), and i basically go to the midle ones for usual cardio/fats burn up schooling. Folding is simple and take only seconds, the stuff is relatively compact when folded. Console is minimalistic but do the occupation. Look sturdy, but will update on this if i have any dilemma in the subsequent months (= if no update it is fantastic).

Wonderful to use, inadequate create quality. The rowing devices itself is fantastic, extremely sleek not clunky like most i have used in the past. So i would give five starts for how it functions. But the rationale for three commences is the paint is flaking off now i have only experienced this in my possession for 24hrs, please see hooked up picture. As you can see at the point of the photograph i have not even concluded making it. . Dissapointed with the paint top quality.

I’m awarding 3 stars only as the plastic housing around the base area of the machine was cracked in 2 locations. To be fair, this was almost certainly weakened in transit. So let’s get realistic, you usually are not heading to get a fitness center high-quality rowing machine for only two hundred quid.On the other hand, if you are not planning on turning out to be an olympic rower and only looking for a brief cardio blast then this will do the work. For home customers who just want to preserve a realistic health and fitness amount than this machine is a need to have.

Of course it is just as the description.

  1. This is a perfect rowing machine for home use. This is a perfect rowing machine for home use. It was pretty easy to put together, instructuions were not complicated and in good english. It is also one of the quietest rowers i’ve used – the seat makes more noise if anything but is negligible compared to most. Recommended 5 stars for price, customer service, and build.

    Great to use, poor build quality. The rowing machines itself is brilliant, incredibly smooth not clunky like most i have used in the past. So i would give 5 starts for how it works. But the reason for 3 starts is the paint is flaking off already i have only had this in my possession for 24hrs, please see attached picture. As you can see at the point of the photo i haven’t even finished building it. . Dissapointed with the paint quality.

    Early days, but so far so good. Arrived earlier than expected. Easy to put together (used online video for reference). Im 5′ 6″ my son 5′ 11″ we’ve both used three or four times each now and all works well. Resistance settings work, digital display works, foot pedals and adjustable velcro straps work well. Let’s hope it lasts as very happy with it so far.

    1. I am 6’4″ and i’m nowhere near the back stops, also over 18 stone and takes my weight easily. Plenty of tension adjustment. Digital display is clear but writing on sides showing what each display is is very small and hard to read when sat on the seat.

    Very easy to assemble well made. . Difficulty levels are good. . Seats a bit hard so use a cushion. . Row three mile a day at a nice steady pace about forty five min and lost 6 pounds.

    Great to use feels as if it’s doing me some good easy to store great for the money.
      1. Missing something essential. The description for this machine includes certain outright lies. In particular, it claims to measure distance and calories – it does not. The only sensor on the machine registers the seat passing a point on the slide. It does not measure distance, it does not measure speed, it does not measure effort. It therefore cannot give any measure of calorie output. It calculates the distance as a straight multiplier of the number of seat passes (strokes). Exactly 167 strokes is displayed as 1. Likewise, the calories are calculated from the number of strokes.

    Recently got this rowing machine, and realy like it. First of all, i am not a profesional rower or anything like that, but i do a decent amount of sport (mostly rock climbing) and wanted something to do at home. I am not a tall person (1m70 or 5ft69 -i guess i still not get what the f*** with the feet and inch s***. ), but i am far from reaching the back of the machine so i guess it will work perfeclty for someone up to 20-25 cm taller than me (will not do the math for you). Rowing mechanism is very silent, we only ear the seat sliding, so no worries about that. Dificulties level are ok, i guess the top one is too light if you are very into rowing but give a decent amount of workout for me (but should you spend only 200£ if you want to be very serious about rowing ?), and i actually go to the midle ones for normal cardio/fat burn training. Folding is easy and take only seconds, the stuff is fairly compact when folded. Console is minimalistic but do the job. Look sturdy, but will update on this if i have any problem in the next months (= if no update it is good).

    1. I’m awarding 3 stars only as the plastic housing around the base section of the machine was cracked in 2 places. To be fair, this was probably damaged in transit. So let’s get realistic, you aren’t going to get a gym quality rowing machine for only 200 quid.However, if you’re not planning on becoming an olympic rower and only looking for a quick cardio blast then this will do the job. For home users who just want to maintain a reasonable fitness level than this machine is a must have.

  13. Really pleased with this purchase. I’ve always used the air rower at the gym and although this is magnetic it is perfect for home use, not too large and folds neatly. Seat is a good size and it is not too noisy, so far so good, been using for 1 month.

    Definitely a good value purchase. I’m quite pleases with the machine, definitely a good value purchase. It was relatively easy to assemble and folded up it can be stored nicely. Rowing on it is relatively smooth, the only criticism is that the handle bar and the foot support could be a tiny bit further apart to allow for more comfort. A big plus is that the machine is quite silent – your neighbours won’t complain about nightly rowing sessions. The computer is very basic and lacks customisation options. That’s to be expected in this price range though.

    1. Seems sturdy (and i am only just within weight limit). Straightforward to assemble, seems sturdy (and i am only just within weight limit). Only downside : not as much resistance, even at the highest setting, as i was expecting – it’s fine for my purposes but might not be sufficient for someone who is strong/fit.
