Product Summary

The Hydrow Wave is the little sibling to the original Hydrow connected rower. The Wave is 30% smaller than the original Hydrow and weighs about 40 pounds less. However, its durable polycarbonate frame still supports the above-industry-standard weight capacity of 375 pounds. Also, you’ll still get all of the fun and engaging features you’d expect from the original model on the new Hydrow Wave.

With the Hydrow All Access membership (sold separately), you can enjoy all sorts of rowing workouts, including guided rows shot on-location in beautiful rivers around the world. You can also do unguided rows or opt for an “on-the-mat” workout from the Hydrow app, which includes strength, yoga, and Pilates sessions.

We are excited to see Hydrow producing a more compact piece of cardio equipment for home gym owners with limited space, without sacrificing the quality we’ve come to expect from this brand.
