The Stamina 35-1405 is an air rower that is in the mid-price range and highly recommended. Many air rowers fail in comparison to water rowers and other high-end models, but the ATS simply outpaces the competition in every way.
Stamina 35-1405 ATS Features
- Electronic performance monitor
- Foam padded, molded seat
- Foldable for easy storage
- Smooth sliding seat
- Wind resistance
- Adjustable foot straps and wide footplate
- 3-year frame warranty
Weighing 73 pounds, you’ll want to have some help transporting the box to your setup area. Assembly is a breeze and within 20 minutes, you’ll be ready to start rowing. As a foldable model, this machine has wheels and can be easily transported from one room to another despite the heavy weight.
Steel construction allows the ATS to hold users up to 250 pounds, but many users have stated that they’ve used this rower even though they exceeded the weight limit. The chrome seat rail is over-sized to allow users of all heights to row in comfort.
Sitting on the seat, you’ll notice that it’s soft thanks to its foam design and is contoured to fit your bottom perfectly. The ball bearing rollers allow for a smooth rowing session with no friction along the way.
Larger feet fit perfectly into the large foot plates, and nylon foot straps allow you to safely secure your feet prior to rowing.
The handle is padded and comfortable – so you’ll avoid blistering when rowing. Once you begin rowing, you’ll enjoy a low-noise production thanks to the revolutionary flywheel design. Using air as resistance, the faster you row, the more resistance you’ll experience – so you never have to turn a dial mid-row again.
Right in the center of the machine is the on-board monitor that provided multi-function capabilities, including:
- Speed monitoring
- Total distance
- Time rowed
- Calories burned
If you’ve ever rowed in the past, you’ll know that the Concept II is the industry’s best rowing machine – or one of the top rowers. While the ATS isn’t quite on par with the Concept II, it definitely comes close in terms of durability and solid construction. For a price that is less than half of the Concept II, the ATS is a steal in terms of quality and performance.
- Quiet design with comfortable seat
- Easy to assemble and folds away
- In-depth monitoring system
- Perfect for taller users
- Older models were defective
Stamina was plagued with defective reports over the chain getting stuck in the rower. This caused many people to leave negative reviews and voice their justified complaints online. While I can’t verify the defect, it has since been repaired according to new users and the company.
The company also worked with any customers that had a defective product – which a lot of companies ignore.
The problems that previous users had with the Stamina 35-1405 ATS have been corrected, leaving one of the best, most advanced air rowers on the market. Quiet and a fluid motion allow you to get an immense workout with the ATS, while the built-in monitor provides you with detailed metrics to follow, ensuring a steady and consistent workout.
