Model B Restoration

Jan 12, 2015

An abandoned Model B "Before"

Concept2 takes great pride in supporting our customers from the Model E all the way back to the Model A. This means that we continue to sell spare parts for older models and provide support to keep equipment running and out of landfills. Our goal is to promote and encourage the growth of rowing. Often, refurbished indoor rowers allow individuals who do not want to buy a new indoor rower enjoy the sport. We thought we would share one great story (of many we’ve received) of a neglected erg that found a new home. With a little bit of money, patience, and some guidance, Tristan Armesto turned a derelict Model B into a shiny racing machine. Continue Reading ›

We'd like you to meet Darlene Brennan. You may recognize that name if you have done any Concept2 team challenges, because quite often, she is at the top of the challenge standings board, rowing for the ANCIENTS team. Since 2008, she has taken part in eighteen team challenges where she ranked #1 on the individual standings eight times. In four of the eighteen challenges, she easily completed more than one million meters and in eight, she completed more than two million meters. She also recently set 2 new world records recently for lightweight 70-79 women—one for rowing a million meters in thirteen days and the other for rowing 100,000 meters in just under 12 hours. How does she do it and what's her secret? Darlene visited Concept2 recently and shared a little of her story. Continue Reading ›

Concept2 CTS at Cross Country Junior Nationals

Mar 12, 2014

Last week in our neighboring town of Stowe, Vermont, Trapp Family Lodge played host to several hundred of the fastest junior cross country skiers in the country. They were here for the annual Junior Nationals—a week-long series of races contested by teams from each of the 10 US regions in skiing. Each region’s team is determined through a series of regional races earlier in the winter, leading up to this championship. For most of these junior skiers, ages 14—19, the goal of making their regional team is the focus of their training all year long. We congratulate all of these young skiers! From this bunch will come the Olympians of the future. Continue Reading ›
