This rowing machine has been made from high-quality materials. It is a very sturdy built machine as well as the rowing stroke is very smooth on it. It has also passed all strict German standards and tests, which is a great sign of quality.

After ordering Christopeit Sport Cambridge 2 rowing machine on Amazon, it will be delivered in a box right to your doorstep. For the UK it is free delivery as well. Inside a box, you will find a user manual, step by step assembly instructions and rowing machine parts. It usually takes around an hour to assemble the machine by yourself; having power tools would be very handy and will speed up the assembly process.

Cambridge 2 provides users with resistance via the elastic rope system. There are eight different resistance levels available to the user that can be adjusted during the workout to suit the needs of the rower. Resistance levels go from very easy to very hard.

The seat on this rowing machine is specially padded to provide maximum comfort during long row session. The seat is mounted with ball bearings to the rail and the glides smoothly alongside the rail.

Cambridge 2 comes with an attached display. Which is a surprise for a machine of this price. The screen is positioned above the handle and is very convenient for users to read stats during the workout. The display will show the following stats:

  • Time elapsed
  • Calories burnt
  • Stroke count
  • Scan

After you are done with your workout, you can release one pin on the rail and fold machine in half. This is a fantastic option for users who have limited space and makes storing and moving this rowing machine around very easy. The device itself is very light, and it can be stored away in a cupboard or under the bed.

Christopeit Sport Cambridge 2 will suit heavy users that are up to 120 kg of weight. As well as it will provide a comfortable workout with full rowing stroke for taller users up to 6 foot. It is very unusual and is indeed one of the good things for a rower of this price.

On the downsides of this machine, the display could be more advanced. It is not backlit, and it lags a bit – feedback will be displayed with some delays. But for the budget rowing machine having a display is a great feature.
