The Viavito Sumi can be quickly and easily folded for tidy storage in between training sessions.

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.

Excellent ideal aid to getting fit.

Once I get used to it, I’m sure I’ll feel the benefits & I look forward to that. It’s bigger than I thought and storing it is a problem. It also won’t turn off like it’s supposed to after use which is a concern

Had to replace my Bodymax after the tension feed broke just out of warantee and this had good reviews. Love the fact that it has the heavier flywheel and the level 7 tension is harder than level 10 on the bodymax it is also quieter and very easy to fold and move it takes up minimal space in our 1 bed flat,it’s also a fab colour, all in all perfect for me at the moment.

Easy to use and does not take too much space for a proper machine. More than worth the money and I can't recommend it highly enough.

Its brilliant easy to use for me and my husband and we are both over 60 years old

Body where handlebar rests upon got cracked within 5 days after a very minor incident during use (handlebar slipped out of my grip & retracted too quickly causing the breakage) so it is not sturdy. It still works ok but that was very disappointing. Through regular use I have built up a tolerance to the maximum resistance setting so shame it doesn't have a stronger setting, however I have just increased the duration of each workout & have upped the pace of each repetition to get more exercise out of it. It is very easy to roll out of the way so love its design.

Viavito Sumi rowing machine is really good machine to use. It stores very nice and neatly. The only grip I would have is its quite noisy when the rollers go over the Viavito sumi stickers, but once you remove them and place them underneath its a lot better.

Arrived in good time by courier. Jan 2020. Packing was quite good and comprehensive. Assembly following the instructions was about 15 minutes to put the rower together. In use the machine is smooth and the varying resistances work in a uniform way. Quality of finish and the fittings looks to be quite OK and not cheap looking. Not any need to regularly fold the machine but see that saves space when not in use if needed.

Compact. Feels sturdy. Competitive price. So far so good!

The family resolution this year was to get fit. And needed a small n compact machine. This is brilliant does the job and so easy to configure the best resistance 1-10 on the dial, higher the figure, the more resistance u get.i have recommended this to a friend and has just purchased 1 for her family 10/10

A good solid machine. Instructions and packaging , the best I've seen. The construction details were accurate and concise, with the required nuts, bolts and pieces packed in groups relevant to each step. Had it up and running within 30 minutes. A miracle for me.

Good machine so far only had it a month

Very good, compact rower. Quite straightforward to assemble. Very sturdy and resistance range should suit all but the high end fitness people. Comfortable for a 6 footer. After sales support very good. All in all very pleased, would happily recommend.

Great starter rowing machine that is quiet and easy to use. The resistance setting lets you choose the level of workout you want by turning a dial so its quick and easy. When not in use i fold it away so it takes up a a fraction of the space. Its a solid piece of kit that is both stable when in use (i was 17 stone when i first started using it) and when folded away in its upright position. Unfortunately the coil that winds the handle back in broke on my machine after nearly a year of constant use. I got in touch with the customer services team who were very helpful resulting in me getting sent a replacement and things have been fine since.
