Frequently Asked Questions
What is whipr?
Whipr is the world’s first portable multi-sport ERG training machine. It's essentially a miniature rowing machine minus the rails.
With whipr you can Paddle, Ski, Row, Kayak, Canoe, Dragon Boat, Swim, Surf & more.
It's specifically designed for travel and home gyms.
What does it do?
whipr is an 'ERG' machine, otherwise known as an ergometer. An ergometer is simply a machine that measures effort. Rowing and ski machines are usually ERG machines.
Most ERG machines are single function, like a rowing machine, where as whipr has multiple functions (modalities).
How do the modalities (functions) work?
Good question. Let's get into it:
To start with whipr needs to be secured using one of two anchor methods. The first is the inflatable anchor that is built in to the back of the device. By sliding this under a door (or fixed object with a clearance of less than 3/4") and inflating it using the pump button on the front, whipr will securely lock itself in place. The second method uses a removable anchor hook that is positioned on the back and a webbing strap. The webbing is passed through the hook and around a fixed object like a tree or a fence post. Once the webbing strap is cinched down it is now locked in place and ready to work.
Choose your function
Once whipr is secured you simply have to decide which activity you'd like to do by selecting one of our accessories. Whipr comes with a range of patent pending accessories that enable each modality. They are all designed to be compact, portable and bulletproof.
Why is it so small?
We built it to be both suitable for travel as well as for convenient storage.
Our secret is in decoupling the actual gear drive that provides resistance from the traditional rail system that defines a rowing machine. If you imagine a rowing machine that has had the seat and rail removed, leaving only the fan/resistance unit, that's the beginning of whipr. We then went through an exhaustive engineering process in order to shrink it down to a footprint that was suitable for travel and convenient storage. This is what we call the 'base' unit and it forms the core of the whipr ecosystem.
When will I get my order?
We're currently in the production stage and will be shipping product in May through June 2021 to our pre-order customers. Delivery can take 4-6 weeks. We'd love to have your support but if you need a fitness device right now, please purchase something else.
What if I only want one accessory?
No problems. The whipr "base unit" is the actual resistance machine. Our range of accessories are added to it to enable the modalities. The accessories enable multiple modalities and are available either singularly or bundled together.
Why are the prices here different than on Kickstarter or Indiegogo?
We offered a substantial discount to our initial backers in return for believing in the product and company. Thanks to them, whipr is now a reality. Those discounts will not be repeated.
Have you tested it with professional rowers?
Yes, we've have professional athletes of all disciplines working on whipr from the start.
