Yes. On the right side of the flywheel, there is a lever that goes from 1 (lowest resistance) to 10 (highest resistance).

Absolutely, you have a range of 1 to 10 levels of resistance.

Yes. There is a lever on the right side of the flywheel that increases or decreases the drag on the wheel. I love mine. I hope you're enjoying yours.

There is a resistance selector lever on the flywheel. Very easy to select resistance desired.

Yes you have 1thru10, it came set at 5 so I just left it. This machine is superior to anything that it have seen, and you can get your heart rate up in no time. I will give this machine my highest rating.

Warning, more information than you want to know... The knob adjusts drag, which is not exactly resistance. The "drag" knob adjusts the time to coast to a stop by allowing more or less fresh air to hit the fan. This is a little different concept than pulling resistance, which is a matter of how fast the fan spins. Rowi… see more Warning, more information than you want to know...

This is a little different concept than pulling resistance, which is a matter of how fast the fan spins. Rowing slowly takes a light pull; rowing faster takes a /much/ harder pull in order to move much more air. To increase resistance, you simply start rowing harder. It makes more sense after you use the rowing machine awhile, so it helps to try it in a gym before you buy. By the way, the Concept2 computer includes a handy function to report the current drag, which is especially helpful to set two different machines for the same rowing experience, or to compensate for dust and aging, or to return the setting exactly where you want it after your spouse messed it all up, lol. see less Warning, more information than you want to know...
