Concept2 had a unique start in 1976. Dick and Pete Dreissigacker began making composite racing oars in the back of a bread truck. From there, Concept2 created the Concept2 Indoor Rower in 1981 which became the best-selling rowing machine in the world. These rowers are used by everyone - Olympic athletes, intense gym-goers and of course, individuals at home keeping up their cardio routine.
