WaterRower M1 HiRise
M1 HiRise WaterRower (Aluminium)
The WaterRower M1 HiRise is made from a sturday powder coated tubular aluminium frame with the same components used throughout the Waterrower range. The HiRise aspect refers to the height of the legs which are extended to offer a higher seat position and easier access for the older and less flexible user.

Review of the Aluminium WaterRower M1 HiRise
The M1 WaterRower has sold in greater numbers into the commercial gym and leisure industry than the wooden waterrower models quite simply because it fits in with the rest of the gym equipment design, style and colouring and it's a bit more resilliant to the knocks and abuse of a 24/7 gym. That said, we've also sold a number of WaterRower M1 models into the domestic market for the same reasons but by far the vast majority of home users go for one of the wooden waterrowers but having a wide choice is one of the great appeals of the WaterRower rowing machines.
HiRise or LoRise? this is a question we're often asked and my answer would come down to something a customer bought up when trying the waterrower in our shop. He informed me that he's had a hip operation and found the regular height WaterRowers were a shade too low for him to comfortable get down to whereas the HiRise rower didn't give any such problems.
One point to note if you are considering purchasing the WaterRower HiRise is that when stored on its end the extended legs prevent the rower from sitting snugly against the wall. Not a problem if you don't plan on storing your rower but most home gyms are always a little tight on space so this might be a point worthy of consideration. (see images above)
SmartRow Upgrade - When the WaterRower SmartRow was launched it was only available for wooden framed rowers but now it can also be fitted to the M1 rower simply by ordering the unit with an M1 fitting bracket which adds a very small additional cost onto the SmartRow option (see available accessories)
Being tubular aluminium the frame of the M1 HiRise is more likely to transfer sound from the rower but having installed a number of these rowers there's certainly not significant difference but the solid wood frames eliminate the chance of audible higher frequency sounds.

The WaterRower M1 HiRise is suitable for both home and commercial gym use although more suitable by design and styling for a commercial gym setting where the curved aluminium tubular side rails and frame perfectly match most gym and fitness equipment that tends to be finished in a "platinum silver" colour which the powder coated M1 matches perfectly.
