The WaterRower Oxbridge is hand crafted in solid Cherrywood.
Like all woods, Cherrywood may vary in color from a red-brown to deep red. The wood will darken in color with exposure to light. For this reason all WaterRower Cherrywood components are kept in light free rooms to protect from shadowing. A new WaterRower Oxbridge will therefore appear quite light in color. The wood will however darken over time reaching a rich reddish hue.
Each machine has been hand finished with three coats of Danish Oil giving a deep lustre an warmth to the wood.
Wood has been chosen due to its marvellous engineering properties, primary amongst these is its ability to absorb sound and vibration enhancing the WaterRower's quietness and smoothness of use.
Cherrywood, like all woods used in WaterRower construction, is a premium hardwood with incredible longevity and dimensional stability.
For reasons of ecology, all our woods are harvested from replenishable forests.
The WaterRower's patented WaterFlywheel has been designed to emulate the exact dynamics as a boat moving through water; the objective of the exercise of rowing
