Our Kayak Paddling Adapter attaches to the Concept2 SkiErg2 in seconds and transforms the Ski Erg2 into a world class training tool for any kayak paddling discipline. Once initially installed, the kayak adapter attaches to the Ski Erg2 in less than one minute! The switch back to the skiing mode takes less than one minute as well.

What Customers Have To Say
Hugh Pritchard, member of the US Team for the Wildwater World Championships in 2013 and 2015 and 2017 US National Champion in Wildwater has been helping us with his feedback as we refined the design of our kayak adapter. Most recently he tells us:
The kayak adapter is a great training tool. The seating position and stroke mechanics are good and it benefits from the massive R&D that has gone into the design of Concept2’s ergonometric components (the monitor and the flywheel). On top of that you two have training gadgets: you can switch between ski and paddle mode in just a few seconds. It looks complicated with the pulleys running up and down but is actually very simple to set up and works very well.
Of course one can also talk about the generic benefits of an indoor training in terms of convenience, ability to do a workout without the time of getting to the river, ability to paddle when the rivers are frozen, ability to isolate and work on aspects of stroke mechanics in a predictable environment.
Avid kayak paddler, Eric Schulz, has also been training with our kayak adapter and reports:
I’ve been using the [kayak adapter] erg for over a year now and haven’t had any problems. The feel of the catch is good, and the resistance range is just right- suitable for long easy sessions to power workouts. This machine is an excellent indoor trainer. Detaching from the ski erg is a breeze.
