Old Danube

Kayak Ergometer

The Old Danube training machines offer a great opportunity for exercise the form of movement of kayak sport even during the winter.

The user spins the flywheel by pulling the ropes mounted on the ends of the paddle shaft. The air resistance and inertia of the flywheel are designed to imitate the resistance of the boat on the water. The cover of the flywheel has inlet openings with adjustable area. The bigger the inlet openings are, the greater the resistance is on the paddle shaft. It can even provide greater resistance than paddling in a sprint kayak, which allows you to perform strength training. The rollers of the rope are designed to be 40 cm higher than the seat, because it makes the catch of the strokes more realistic.

Canoe dynamic ergometer

The Old Danube training machines offer a great opportunity for exercise the form of movement of canoe sport even during the winter.

The user spins the flywheel by pulling the ropes mounted on the end of the paddle shaft. The air resistance and inertia of the flywheel are designed to imitate the resistance of the boat on the water. The cover of the flywheel has inlet openings with adjustable area. The bigger the inlet openings are, the greater the resistance is on the paddle shaft. It can even provide greater resistance than paddling in a sprint canoe, which allows you to perform strength training. The rollers of the rope are designed to be 30 cm higher than the canoe platform, because it makes the catch of the strokes more realistic.
