• Have more fun rowing on the erg
  • Get more feedback
  • Energize your indoor rowing with music

ErgMate enhances your indoor rowing by providing encouragement and instructions just like a real coxswain. It adds new feedback - just like having a coach right there with you.

It helps you meet your goals by calling out information about the row - such as distance remaining or time to go, just like a real coxswain. It can sequence music for you throughout the piece - start out with a list of songs that are steady and driving, then switch over to something fast for the final 250 meter sprint as your ErgMate calls a final power 20. You are in control. It is just the thing for those upcoming 2K erg tests.
