Skandika SF-1170 Rowing Machine Review

Skandika Regatta Oxford Pro SF-1170 rowing machine is an amazing, futuristic looking and affordable rowing machine that will push your body to the limit.

It has everything a professional machine would have except the price tag! This rower does its job well, it provides you with rowing comfort and works your body to the max.

One of the main features of Skandika SF-1170 is its design and construction. It is made of durable materials, has modern looks and also can fold in half for you to save space.

SF-1170 resistance comes from magnets, so you shall not worry about noise because this machine is as quiet as whispering even when you rowing hard.

This machine offers five different resistance levels that can be adjusted using the special dial places just below the LCD screen. 5 levels of resistance are good for beginners and intermediates, but it is questionable if it will satisfy needs of a more advanced user.

On the up side, you can use rower handles for other exercises, which turns this rower into an amazing all-in-one workout machine. You can work your arm and back strength with this rower as well as work on your cardio. Amazing pick for weight loss or someone who is looking after improving health in general.

In general, this is an amazing indoor rowing machine that would be great for both men and women of all shapes and sizes.

After finishing your rowing session, just fold this machine in half and put it aside in your closet. Great for those who are living in a flat or haven’t got a lot of space.

What customers say about Skandika SF-1170

This machine is very easy to assemble. It does all what it says on the description, it has fitted all my expectations. Excellent purchase.

Resistance is a tad bit easy for me. If you are quite fit as I am, I recommend for something a bit more challenging.

This machine is great for anyone who want a compact rowing machine for an affordable price tag.

Good seat. Average sized person can use this machine with great comfort.


Before buying this machine please keep in mind that this rower has been made for intermediate and beginner users. If you are an expert rower and looking for a challenge we recommend looking for a different rowing machine.

Another thing that disappointed us was that pulse monitor is an extra buy. But on the other side of things, this rower has been built to last, and in case anything goes wrong there is always warranty.

Skandika has got an amazing and friendly customer service which will send you out replacement parts free of charge within 2 years warranty period.

SF-1170 is a great pick if you are looking to buy your first rowing machine that will last for long.  Amazing if you are not willing to risk and spend thousands on other machines.
