The Model E offers presence and durability with its 20 inch frame height, nickel-plated chain, and double powder coat with glossy finish. From a practical standpoint, the higher frame means easier on-and-off for those with tired knees or mobility considerations. The nickel-plated chain (also featured on the Model D and Dynamic) requires less-frequent oiling. The finish protects against scratches.
Aesthetically, the Model E is the luxury machine of the indoor rower world. Solid and sleek, the Model E will hold its own in a fitness center, your home gym, or the living area of your midtown loft. Best of all, it does all of this while providing the unparalleled full-body workout of our other indoor rowers.
If you’re familiar with our equipment, the Model E is everything you’ve come to expect in a Concept2 Indoor Rower and more. If you’re trying us for the first time, the Model E will satisfy even the most discriminating buyers.

Packed with Features, Easy to Operate
We pack a lot of functionality into the PM5, but we also make sure it’s easy to use. The monitor will power up and provide data as soon as the flywheel starts spinning, so you don’t need to push a single button to get started.
If you prefer to dive in to all the functions the monitor provides, the easy menu-driven operation lets you quickly access preset workouts, save favorite workouts, review past workout results and much more. For a full run-down, visit How to Use Your PM5.
Data and Displays
The PM5 provides distance, speed, pace, calories, and watts for each workout you do, and you can choose between five display options: all data, force curve, bar chart, large print and having a paceboat/pacer.
The PM5’s backlit display provides increased visibility. It illuminates automatically when the monitor powers up and stays illuminated during your workout.
Wireless Heart Rate Monitoring
The PM5 supports ANT+ and Bluetooth Smart for wireless heart rate monitoring. To use this feature, you will need a chest belt that supports one of these transmission technologies. Please note that the PM5 supports Bluetooth Smart, not Bluetooth, which is a different technology.
USB Flash Drive Compatible
The PM5 provides two means of storing your performance data: the internal memory in the monitor itself or with a USB flash drive. The USB flash drive stores your workout data and preferences, and makes your data portable. With our free Concept2 Utility software, you can upload data to your online logbook or transfer data to your Mac or PC.
Compatible with FAT and FAT32 USB formats only
The PM5 takes two D cell batteries. During your workout, the monitor draws power from the spinning flywheel to extend battery life.
