Le montage prend une petite heure, le manuel genre Ikea est assez clair.
Une fois le rameur monté, l'effort a produire peut aller de très très facile a très très très difficile (voire impossible). Hélas, le système de réglage de l'effort n'est pas très pratique : on déplace avec difficulté le point de jonction des vérins sur les rames ce qui modifie l'effet de levier.
Sur mon ancien rameur où on règle l'effort en vissant un évent d'air, j'aimais bien m'échauffer avec une force moindre puis augmenter l'effort en vissant en 2 secondes l'évent une fois chaud.
Ici, avec ce système peu convivial, on renonce a changer la force et on rame avec le même réglage.
Autre petit problème sur l'aspect cinématique, l'effort n'est pas assez linéaire à mon gout : au début du mouvement, il est trop faible et à la fin, un peu trop fort. Résultat, on muscle beaucoup plus les bras et les épaules que les jambes ou les abdos. Certains préfèreront, moi pas.
Kettler pourrait corriger le problème pour les jambes en permettant de paramétrer la pente ou en l'augmentant un peu.
Mais bref, une fois la force correctement choisie et fixée, l'usage du rameur est globalement très sympa : stabilité, silence, plaisir de ramer...Lire la suite ›

1. The bottom of the main rail--they give you a bunch of LARGE washers. Hint: None of the washers depicted are actual size. Or are necessarily there. All the bolts on the underside require a large one, though they don't really spell that out. Sat at the end going "Huh, wonder where all these dang washers go?" Duh.
2. The way you tell which arm is which--virtually NO difference EXCEPT where the bolt goes through to hold the adjustment knob. The hole where the HEAD of the bolt will rest is BIGGER (somewhat inset)--THAT should be on what will be the INSIDE when put together, so the adjustment knob ends up on the outside of the arm.
3. Everyone is complaining, complaining about the tension being too hard. Uh, guess what? If you adjust it as low as it APPEARS it can go--closest to the big rubber bellows--it SURE IS HARD! However, the bellows thingy can be scrunched further down (compressed) to slide the adjustment even lower. YUP. Just lift the arm to vertical so the tension is taken off, then crush that bad boy until the black bellows is pretty much rib-to-rib. Tighten. Yee-hah! Delightfully manageable tension!
The rubber thingy does tend to ride over the joint a bit, but I just push it back. I just rowed on this the first time for 20 minutes slow and easy, and I had no problem. I am not a bruiser--I have to pass jars of pickles to my husband to open.
Apart from the astoundingly sucky directions, pretty solid rower. The directions will certainly put a lot of people off who feel if they can do IKEA, they can do this. Build it with a friend so you have someone to cuss with. I really expected better from the Germans. You'd think they could at LEAST read reviews and offer a link to amended directions. Opportunity here to make an Amazon Kindle mini book? But plow through the assembly--it's worth it. This machine feels like it will last a long time. I took it down from 5 starts only because of the assembly--it will run you out of naughty words. Do not assemble with children, or around your granny--she will wash your mouth out with Lifeboy.
I have it on carpet. Doesn't shimmy, shake, clank--nothing.
Pros- sturdy, solid, smooth. This is not a flimsy piece of equipment. And the heart rate monitor is pretty accurate. I compared it to my husband's cardio strap thing and the rower read 105 and the strap 101.
Cons- The way to adjust for resistance is difficult, sticky, and cumbersome. There are no notches, you have to adjust by sight, and really push and pull to move the resistance up and down.
Neutral/Con- A first I thought the resistance didn't engage the legs at all. It's sorta true. The resistance doesn't really kick in until handlebars are relatively up so that means the resistance doesn't engage until the legs are almost extended. This was really a concern for me, and could have been a deal breaker. In fact, I would have immediately returned it if I didn't discover something. The way I try to make sure my legs get some of the resistance is by concentrating and making sure that I use my legs until I must use my arms. I really wish that the legs were engaged earlier and more automatically, but I think for that I'd have to get a $800 machine, which I don't want to right now.
UPDATE - one week later - I returned the item for an Air Rower. The cons never outweighed the pros...
I read the reviews before purchasing and I was a bit concerned, but I should not have been.
Some of the complaints I read about were;
"Adjustment loosens up during use". I don't understand this one as I've had absolutely no problems, and I've done some vigorous and extended rowing. The adjusting knobs work great, easy adjust and they have never gotten loose. My felling is someone put their machine together wrong.
"Instructions are difficult/confusing/wrong language". Again, I'm not sure what the problem is here. Instructions come in several languages, including English. No big deal. The machine is very easy to assemble. And while the instructions aren't detailed, the pictures are quite clear and it's not rocket science.
I also read where the pulse monitor does not work well. Mine works fine. You are supposed to rub your ear lobe to help circulation before you start and bright sun light can interfear with the heart rate monitor (according to instructions). So maybe this is the problem some are having. I've checked my pulse manually and the monitor is right on.
The Kettler Favorit is well built, not flimsy. I weigh 190 lbs. and it handles me easily. The 250 lb. weight limit is probably conservative.
The seat is comfortable enough (it's a rowing machine, not your easy chair!) and I like the heavy duty covering. It won't easily rip, tear or wear out.
It has a smooth rowing action. I like the articulated rowing bars which let you simulate (or not) actual rowing motion. It's the quietest rowing machine I've used (though I still huff and puff noisily at times).
It's heavier than other, similar rowing machines but it's not that bad. I'd rather have a bit more wieght than a flimsy machine.
I'm sure there are better machines out there since you can pay well over $1,000 for some of the high end products. But in this price range (and some that cost more) I don't think you'll find a better rowing machine.
In the mid 1980's I purchased a $300 hydraulic, Precor portable rowing machine which I used daily for over twenty years, it was sturdy and, apart from oiling it never needed any repairs. It still worked when donated donated before last state move! The Kettler Favorit is not as sturdy or fluid as the old Precor.
My main problem was getting the resistance to stay in adjustment. No matter how hard I cranked the adjustment knobs they would always slip in the direction of lowering the resistance. Also, the adjustment for each "oar" would slip a different amount making the resistance uneven. The solution I found was to wrap a couple hose clamps, available for a few bucks at any hardware store, onto the base of the handle bars, under the adjustment knobs. This allowed the adjustment knobs to settle onto the hose clamps and prevented them from dropping down and lowering the resistance. Note: I like to keep the resistance fairly light.
Problem number 2: The accordion-like boots that cover the junction of the handle bars to the base would get caught on some of the linkage hardware (i.e., nuts and bolts). This caused a clicking noise with each stroke that annoyed the heck out of me. After adjusting and turning them to try to silence the clicking I finally gave up and got some tin snips from the garage and cut them off. Problem solved. I do have to pay attention that the linkage that was covered by the boots remains lubed and clean, but not a big deal, and not something I have to do very often.
The main difference, in my opinion, between the Favorit and something like the Concept 2 is the fact that the Concept 2 allows the user to pull the oar/handle toward his/her torso at whatever angle or height feels comfortable. This is because the handle is connected to the source of resistance by a chain. The Favorit, however, only allows the handles to be pulled along a fixed path. This was a problem for me at first, and I found I could not use the Favorit for long before getting elbow pain. Turns out the pain was caused by having too much resistance, which was caused by setting the resistance higher than I should have in an effort to prevent the resistance knobs from slipping. Once I came up with the above-noted adjustment hack the elbow pain went away. However, the fact that the handles are restricted to traveling in a fixed arc/path toward the user's chest may be an issue for others.
Overall I find the Favorit is smooth, quiet, and the pistons provide resistance that is similar to air rowers like the Concept 2. The harder you pull the more they resist. I don't pay much attention to the electronic display, mostly using it to keep track of time and distance. The Favorit is definitely quieter that an air rower. If you have the space, noise is not an issue, you plan to use the rower a lot and you have few extra dollars lying around go with the Concept 2. If space and noise are issues for you the Favorit is a good choice.
