The Viavito Sumi can be quickly and easily folded for tidy storage in between training sessions. It has an amazingly compact footprint of just 74cm x 53cm (29" x 20.8") when folded so even if you’re tight on space you’ll be able to train without cluttering up your home. The Sumi is also light-weight (weighing in at just 26.1kg) and features transport wheels making it possible for just about anyone to effortlessly place it out of the way in a corner or a closet until the next training session.



An easy-to-read, logical and intuitive LCD display provides live workout feedback and shows time, distance, calories, stroke count and strokes per minute enabling you to keep track of your progress and achievements. There's also a scan mode so you can see each set of data in turn during your workout and a total count mode so you can see the total number of strokes you've performed. This makes keeping track of your progress and operating the Sumi quick and simple.



Most entry-level rowing machines feature flywheels that typically weigh just 3 or 4kg. The Sumi features an extra-heavy 7kg (15.4lbs) flywheel that delivers a consistent, smooth action ensuring that your training experience is both comfortable and enjoyable.

How easy is it to get replacement parts if they're needed?

Spare parts for the Sumi rowing machine are readily available from the manufacturer. While we don't sell parts directly, if you need a part we'll be able to assist by pointing you in the rigth direction and of course, in the unlikely event that you ever need assistance with your machine we're always here to help.

How do you fold this up?

The Sumi is foldable in half to help you save precious floor space at home. To fold it up, you simply need to loosen the locking knob, remove the locking pin, then fold the rail upward and replace the locking pin to secure it.

as a first rowing machine is it a good buy?

Definitely. The machine not only provides an effective, low impact workout, but also lets you simultaneously target muscles in the upper and lower body. It allows for improving overall health and combines cardio workout and strength training for better results, faster. With a 7kg (15.4lbs) flywheel, it offers smooth movement and just enough power for a decent workout, whereas to help you find your own difficulty for each session there are 10 levels of friction-free, manually-controlled magnetic resistance. Plus, its space-saving, folding design makes Sumi an apartment-friendly option.

Is a heart rate monitor available for the Viavito Sumi?

Unfortunately no. If you're looking for a machine offering pulse readings, please check out the Viavito Rokai multi-function rowing machine. The Rokai is fitted with a built-in wireless heart rate receiver that's compatible with uncoded, standard frequency transmitters.

How big are the packages when delivered?

The product comes in a single box with dimensions: Length=124cm (48.8"), Width=22.5cm (8.8"), Height=57.5cm (22.7")

does it come with the manual as I do not have a printer?

Hi. Yes this rower comes with the full printed user manual and warranty registration information in the box

Can the rowing machine be stored in cold conditions eg used and stored in outside garage?

It’s not recommended to use and store this rowing machine in cold conditions as this can negatively affect the electronic and mechanical components. The rower should be kept in a warm, clean and dry environment. Do not position it near water or outdoors.

Hi , can you tell me what stops this from sliding on the floor when being used and can it be used on carpet ? Thanks Roger

Hi Roger. The best thing to stop it from sliding on a hard surface would be a machine matt. We have several different types of matt and they'd all be suitable for this purpose. You can use the machine on a carpet no problem (you won't need a matt if using on a carpet).

What does Row Length: 80cm (31.5”) mean?

It means that the seat will travel a maximum of 80cm along the rail.

It does what it's meant to do - no more no less. I'm not sure why some people complain about the quality - if you do the workout using the proper form then the machine functions brilliantly!

Very good quality for the price. If it lasted more than 100k. It broke on about 98k. If it was still functional I would have given it 5 stars.

I have been using my Sumi for almost 1 year and just about every day. The machine is reliable and robust and folds up into a very small space. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to keep fit at home. Peter

I love this machine. Simple and Sturdy it’s been getting use across the family and provides a great workout. I’ve been able to gradually ramp up my usage and build my fitness and strength over the last few months. Great value for money and highly recommended.

I use it almost every day and still looks good. Everything working good and I may say I am really happy with it.

All works well & smoothly so far. Limited use as yet ,but it has not shown any signs of wear & tear. Pleased with quality and price.

The machine is very different to the concept 2 in that there is no run after the stroke so the timings for set distances are much slower. However, once accustomed to the slower times the machine e is a joy to use. It's VERY smooth and quiet. I removed the lettering on the shaft as that was noisy, so problem solved. I use it a lot and have had no problems with it. would I recommend it....yes.

Good space saving design and feels well built. Enough resistance for a decent workout for the average user, probably not enough there for rowing enthusiasts though. The handle is a little thick, which puts a bit more strain on your fingers and forearms when in use, but overall decent !

So wanted this to be really good.....however it creaks/cracks/squeeks/moves a lot of you push hard....have to put headphones and music on loud to drown out noises, other half leaves the room! Not a bad workout but just too cheap and did I mention feels like it's going to fall apart/break every use...and I have tightened everything several times.

We’ve had this for a couple of months now and are really impressed. Bought in lockdown when gyms closed. It’s functionality is close to a much more expensive fixed rower. I’m 6’ and the rail is long enough for me on a full leg extension. Very stable in use and folds up in moments. Would be heavy to lift, but the wheels mean it’s easy to push back to the corner to fold up. We wanted a proper rowing machine experience but that took up little space when not in use. That’s exactly what we got. Brilliant

As a woman in my seventies, this machine is ideal for indoor exercise - I only have it on level 3 of 10 so plenty of room for stronger people to test themselves! My first parcel was damaged but Zsolt from Customer service efficiently arranged a new delivery and I built the machine fairly easily. Some users have mentioned that the movement was not smooth, but I found that removing the Viavito stickers solved this. Also, I find the labels on the display difficult to read- I can read the figures, but not what they represent, so have added my own labels either side of the display screen. Overall, I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

Excellent value for the money. I have been using it for 3 months now, and has definitely helped to get my body back into shape, especially after the gym was closed because of COVID19. Has also helped with my wellbeing - fit body, fit mind.

Use every day very good value for the money
