The double-pole involves more of the larger muscle groups, resulting in increased aerobic demand, calorie burn, and an overall higher quality workout. The classic alternating arm motion is also a good workout, while using a slightly different and smaller set of muscles.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eHow do my legs get a workout with a SkiErg?\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/section\u003e\n\u003c\/section\u003e\n\u003csection\u003e\n\u003csection\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eWhen using the double-pole technique, each pull engages the arms, shoulders, core and legs in a downwards “crunch,” using body weight to help accelerate the handles. Watch the video and you’ll see the legs raising the body weight on each stroke, much as they do when skiing on snow. A workout on the SkiErg provides a true full-body workout that exercises the legs at least as hard as the upper body.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eThe classic (alternating arms) ski technique uses fewer muscles than double-poling, and generally has less leg involvement, but it is an excellent ski-specific training for Nordic skiers. It may be preferable to use a lower damper setting than is used with double-poling.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWhy did Concept2 move to a strapless handle on the updated SkiErg?\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/section\u003e\n\u003c\/section\u003e\n\u003csection\u003e\n\u003csection\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cspan\u003eThe SkiErg is often used by multiple users in an indoor environment where the typical ski pole strap would get sweaty and be cumbersome to have to adjust between users. To alleviate this problem, we developed the strapless grip. The “shelf” at the bottom of the grip rests against the heel of your hand much in the way a strap would transfer the load to your hand, but without the need to make adjustments between users. The surface of the grip is covered with the same durable grip material we use on our rowing oar grips. This material has good grip properties and does not absorb water.\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eWhy is a Rowing company making a SkiErg?\u003c\/strong\u003e \u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003c\/section\u003e\n\u003c\/section\u003e\n\u003csection id=\"durable\"\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eAlthough Concept2 is best known as a rowing company, quite a few members of the Concept2 family are skiers. Here in northern Vermont, the lakes are frozen for at least half the year, and there's plenty of snow during the winter. Skiing and rowing are two of the most aerobically demanding sports and serve as effective cross-training in opposite seasons. Both sports use the entire body, requiring the heart and lungs to provide oxygen to many muscles of the body at once.\u003c\/p\u003e\n\u003cp\u003eIn fact, we've been using variations of our rowing erg for ski training for quite a few years now.

Concept2 | SkiErg with PM5

Product Description

SKU: C2-2715
Vendor: Concept2
$1,369.00
Maximum quantity available reached.

The Concept2 SkiErg makes the sport of Nordic skiing available to everyone. Long recognized as delivering one of the toughest workouts around, Nordic skiing develops both strength and endurance and exercises the legs as well as the arms and core. The SkiErg can be used for both double pole and classic alternating arm technique.

The SkiErg uses the same flywheel resistance and electronic monitoring systems as our indoor rower, the proven choice of rowing athletes around the world since 1981, so you can rest assured that the machine is made to last. As well as being durable and well built, the SkiErg is sophisticated too, with an advanced monitor that provides immediate, accurate performance data.

Whether you’re an elite cross-country skier looking to improve your poling power, a weekend enthusiast wanting to get into shape for the ski season, or just someone looking for a great workout, the SkiErg will help you achieve your goals.

FLOOR STAND SOLD SEPARATELY

Compact option, while the floor stand, with its anti-skid deck and caster wheels, provides an all-in-one solution that makes the SkiErg mobile. Either way, the SkiErg is easy to assemble, and we provide all the tools you’ll need to do the job.

High Strength Drive Cords

The SkiErg relies on high-strength cords in its drive system. Much stronger than steel, the cords are also extremely lightweight, resulting in a system that is responsive and smooth.

Flywheel and Damper

The SkiErg responds to your effort on every pull, so you are in full control of your exertion and resistance at all times. The spiral damper allows you to quickly adjust the airflow to the flywheel, so you can change the feel of the pull to suit your preference. Whether you want your workout to feel like you’re on flat terrain or an uphill climb, the SkiErg will respond to your needs.

Ergonomic Strapless Handles

The SkiErg’s ergonomic, strapless handles provide for a comfortable, secure grip and won’t absorb sweat so they stay dry in high use settings. They are also suitable for all hand sizes as they require no adjustment.

Durable Construction That’s Easy to Maintain

Our machines are well-known for their durability and construction. Tough and built to last, our machines withstand rigorous use in Nordic ski centers, living rooms, health clubs and military bases around the world. We make sure our machines are easy to care for so you can focus on using your investment, not maintaining it.

The SkiErg requires very little assembly. There are a total of twelve screws, and we include all necessary tools and clear instructions with lots of pictures.

What is the difference between the two-arm pull and the one-arm pull? 

The SkiErg is designed for both double-poling—the two-armed pull common to all variations of Nordic skiing—and the alternating arm motion used in Classic Nordic ski technique. The double-pole involves more of the larger muscle groups, resulting in increased aerobic demand, calorie burn, and an overall higher quality workout. The classic alternating arm motion is also a good workout, while using a slightly different and smaller set of muscles.

How do my legs get a workout with a SkiErg? 

When using the double-pole technique, each pull engages the arms, shoulders, core and legs in a downwards “crunch,” using body weight to help accelerate the handles. Watch the video and you’ll see the legs raising the body weight on each stroke, much as they do when skiing on snow. A workout on the SkiErg provides a true full-body workout that exercises the legs at least as hard as the upper body.

The classic (alternating arms) ski technique uses fewer muscles than double-poling, and generally has less leg involvement, but it is an excellent ski-specific training for Nordic skiers. It may be preferable to use a lower damper setting than is used with double-poling.

Why did Concept2 move to a strapless handle on the updated SkiErg?

The SkiErg is often used by multiple users in an indoor environment where the typical ski pole strap would get sweaty and be cumbersome to have to adjust between users. To alleviate this problem, we developed the strapless grip. The “shelf” at the bottom of the grip rests against the heel of your hand much in the way a strap would transfer the load to your hand, but without the need to make adjustments between users. The surface of the grip is covered with the same durable grip material we use on our rowing oar grips. This material has good grip properties and does not absorb water.

Why is a Rowing company making a SkiErg? 

Although Concept2 is best known as a rowing company, quite a few members of the Concept2 family are skiers. Here in northern Vermont, the lakes are frozen for at least half the year, and there's plenty of snow during the winter. Skiing and rowing are two of the most aerobically demanding sports and serve as effective cross-training in opposite seasons. Both sports use the entire body, requiring the heart and lungs to provide oxygen to many muscles of the body at once.

In fact, we've been using variations of our rowing erg for ski training for quite a few years now. We first played with this idea in 1982, using parts from the Model A Indoor Rower. We have fine-tuned our designs since then, and are excited to bring this technology to skiers.
