It is obvious that the best rowers in the world are high-end and relatively expensive because they are designed for intensive use and they offer the best in terms of quality, robustness, system braking and comfort of use. Some devices are even designed to integrate better in your interior, as ecological models all in oak, cherry or ash with water braking. But this kind of material is not accessible to all and one can very well train, even at high level, on a less expensive device. Our goal was primarily to offer devices based on a given budget, hence our ranking in 3 categories of devices:
