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.

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

Great value for the money. This is not a Concept II, so don't expect it to be a top of the line machine. But it is a perfectly decent rower to keep you fit at a fraction of the price. The highest resistance rating is tough enough, and the foot plate placement is nice. The slide is a little noisy, and the reach at the catch is a bit shorter than I would ideally like, but you get used to it. I use it as a part of a cross-training routine with an elliptical machine and a calisthenics circuit, rather than as a dedicated 'rowing only' plan.

Excellent product for the money. Really happy with it and great workout. Would definitely recommend it.

So far proving to be an excellent product. Appears to be a strong and robust piece of fitness equipment at a fair price.

I was a bit unsure about this but really pleased with it. Bought it to replace a very old hydraulic system I was given a couple of years back. It's pretty compact but solid. Comfortable for me to use in a restricted space, I'm 182cm/84kg. The tip about removing the stickers from the seat bar is sound. I use my phone as a timer and just keep an eye on the strokes/minute count.

I am delighted with my Viavito is everything I had hoped it would be. I am seeing great results already and feel so positive after a good workout.

While it is not the easiest thing to set up, I really like it. It is easy to use and folds away nicely. There is a locking screw to keep it from falling, which could have been designed better but this is a minor thing. It seems to be well built and does the job. It may not be suitable for professionals but easily meet my needs.

I think it's a good machine. So far no issues, apart from a squeak on higher settings. The fold up mechanism works well, although if it latched to make moving it slightly easier would be nice. The Viavito sticker on top isn't best placed as seat wheels go over it each time, which will eventually wear it the logo I am sure. Overall very happy so far.

Excellent rower

Good quality rowing machine. Easy to fold up and takes up little space I would definitely recommend

This is an excellent peace of kit, it takes up little room when folded and is quiet in use. It was east to put together and so far seems to be of good quality.

Very impressed with the build quality of the rower. Easy to assemble and very quick delivery.

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.
