The UREVO UR9RW0010 is one of the rowing machines released in 2021. It’s a magnetic resistance rower similar in terms of features to the ADVENOR mag rower, or the SNODE S600. However, it has a slightly better fitness monitor with a few extra functions. It’s a machine for home use and comes with a one-year warranty.

The UREVO UR9RW0010 combines steel, aluminum, and thermoplastic parts in its construction. For example, the front part of the machine that holds the drive and resistance elements is made of steel. The rail is made of extruded aluminum in order to have high corrosion resistance and provide a smoother motion for the seat. The unit’s rear, middle, and front stabilizers are also steel-made. And finally, the covers of the resistance mechanism are made of durable thermoplastic material.
All the steel parts in the machine’s construction are coated with a corrosion-resistant paint finish. The color used is black, this being the only color available for this rower, at least for the moment. As we’ve already mentioned, the rail has its own natural polish, while the plastic covers, the footrests, and the seat pad are also black in order to fit the color theme of the machine.
The UREVO UR9RW0010 rower is not as large as a commercial-grade model. However, it still is approx. 70.8″ (180 cm) long, and 20.8″ (53 cm) wide. Plus, it is recommended to leave at least two feet of clearance at the rear and on each side of the rail for ease of access and to execute the complete rowing motion correctly.
The unit’s rail is fairly long. Therefore, the applicable inseam length for this machine is approx. 37″ (94 cm). So, differently put, the rower should be able to accommodate users up to 6’5″ (196 cm) with no problem.
The rail is also foldable. With the rail folded up, the rower’s footprint becomes approx. 22.4″L x 20.8″W (57 x 53 cm), while its height reaches approx. 50″ (127 cm). The unit is not too heavy. Its net weight is around 65 lbs (29.4 kg). This being said, it can be carried and assembled by only one person. Also, its front base integrates a set of wheels for easy transportation.
Seat and other parts
The UREVO UR9RW0010 rower is equipped with a padded seat, similar to the one included with the Fitness Reality 2646. It is approx. 12″ (30 cm) wide so it provides plenty of contact surface. Its top section is made of high-density foam in order to reduce the impact on your tailbone. It is also contoured for extra comfort.
The base of the seat is made of steel. It integrates two sets of wheels that slide through the side grooves of the rail. The wheels are concealed by the side of the seat frame for improved safety. They also integrate ball bearings for a smooth seat motion and have a rubber layer on the outside to reduce noise.
The seat and the rail are rated for a maximum user weight limit of 265 lbs (120 kg), which is not bad for a rower made for home use. The rail is not perfectly horizontal. It is slanted forward by approx. 1-2 degrees. This being said, the machine provides a slightly better workout for the legs. Also, in case you’re wondering, the seat stands at approx. 10″ (25 cm) above the floor.
The UREVO mag rower is equipped with two large footrests made from durable thermoplastic material. They have a textured surface and adjustable straps for maximum foot stability. They do not pivot. They attach to the frame via two metallic rods so they provide a firm push. Their angle is approx. 45°.
The rower features a handle with an ergonomic, curved design. It has PVC foam sleeves for an improved grip. It does not have any resistance controls or pulse sensors like the more expensive rowers. It is attached to a durable nylon strap highly resistant to abrasion.
The UREVO UR9RW0010 rower is equipped with a manual magnetic resistance system, similar to the XTERRA Fitness ERG160. This being said, you don’t need an adapter for it. But on the other hand, since its internal brake is mechanical with manual action, the machine cannot adjust the resistance automatically.
The resistance system consists of a magnetic brake connected to the internal flywheel system and to the tension knob on the front unit of the rower. Thus, when you turn the knob, it changes its position in relation to the flywheel which increases or decreases the rowing load. There are two main advantages to this type of resistance system. One, the brake does not touch the flywheel so there is no friction, and no drag leading to a very smooth and quiet rowing motion. Two, since the brake does not touch the flywheel, it basically doesn’t suffer any wear and tear.
The UREVO rower offers 8 levels of resistance. The first level delivers a fairly light workout load, great for stamina development, muscle toning, and a prolonged workout. Conversely, the 8th level of resistance provides considerably more resistance, great for anyone who wants to push their limits or reach a high cardio rate in a very short period of time.
One last important aspect to mention here regards the fact that the rower does not provide a dynamic response. This pretty much stands for any full-magnetic rower. This essentially means that the resistance does not depend on how fast you row as is the case for air or water resistance rowers. This shouldn’t be an inconvenience, though, as the machine still provides a pretty consistent full-body cardio workout. It’s just that the rowing feel is not as close to rowing a real boat as it is for an air or water rower.
The UREVO UR9RW0010 rower is equipped with a fitness monitor that offers a few more features than a basic one. To begin with, it has an LCD display divided into 6 sub-sections. It shows time/500m, stroke count, strokes per minute, distance, calories, and watts. The unit does not have a pulse reading function, so if you want to keep track of your pulse during your workouts, you will have to use a separate device. Also, the distance is shown in miles.
The fitness monitor unit does not have Bluetooth or online connectivity. It also does not have any pre-set workout programs. It has three buttons – Set, Mode, and Reset. The Set button allows you to select goals for some of the workout metrics available on the monitor. The Mode button covers the selection function. And finally, the Reset button clears all the values on the device to zero.
The monitor unit is battery-powered. It requires two AA batteries which are included. It starts monitoring your workout stats when you begin rowing. It also turns off automatically after a few minutes of inactivity on the machine.
Assembly and Maintenance
The main drive and resistance unit of the rower comes pre-assembled. The rest of the parts require user assembly. You will have to attach the front stabilizer, the footrests, the seat, the rear stabilizer, the middle stabilizer, and put the batteries into the fitness monitor. This shouldn’t take more than 30-40 minutes of your time. All the necessary tools are included and the manual provides clear assembly instructions.
For maintenance, it is important to keep the rower clean, especially the rail to prevent any damage to the seat wheels. The internal parts do not require lubrication or any maintenance. It is also recommended to periodically check for loose bolts and parts.
