Ranking pieces can be done on any model Concept2 RowErg, SkiErg or BikeErg.
All ranking pieces must be single distance or timed pieces (no interval pieces) started from a non-moving flywheel. Accelerated starts from moving flywheels during intervals are not accepted as ranking times.
The machine should be on a level surface during the piece.
Modifications to the machine that alter its performance are not allowed. Examples of allowed modifications; seating, pedals, handlebars. Please check with Concept2 if you are unsure.
There is no required damper setting. You are free to choose the setting you prefer and you may change the setting during the piece as long as it is done by the person using the machine. Learn more about damper settings.
RowErg may be rowed with or without Slides. The exception: all 2000 meter record-breaking times must be rowed on Concept2 RowErgs without Slides.
The distance pieces should be set up as a preset workout so the meters count down. To learn how to preset a workout on your monitor, please see the Monitor Support section on our main website. Having done this, once the piece is completed, the tenths of a second will appear with the finish time.
The timed pieces should be set up as a workout so the time counts down while rowing.
When using the BikeErg, the air flow to and from the flywheel cannot be obstructed in any way with additional objects or covering materials at any point during the piece or the preceding calibration verification.
The Ranking is an honor based system. Using any methods to gain an unfair advantage or entering false or erroneous information are not allowed.
