Row in the direction
RowVista® forward rowing system offer the same performance as traditional rowing configurations. An adjustable stop limits movement to the rear so that you can row without using foot straps. Very comfortable, if you want to row barefoot in summer. The oarlocks snap onto the side beams without the need for tools. The sliding seat runs smoothly and quietly along the center beam on six ball bearings. The foot stretcher unit can be attached onto the center beam and can be locked in 5 positions for optimum weight distribution.
A technical masterpiece
The world's best forward rowing system with linkage mechanism and blade feathering integrated. RowVista® system holds both national and international patents, and pending patents. Over the past 100 years, more than 250 patents have been registered for forward rowing systems. None are practical due to inadequate feathering systems.
1. The powerful rocker arm transmits and amplifies the rotation of the handle to the oar blade. The handle rotates just 65° to rotate the blade 85°. That means less stress on your wrists. Patented worldwide.
2. High strength con rods with ball heads transfer the rotation from the handle to the rocker arm independently of the angle of the oar.
3. Positioning cam for defined vertical and horizontal blade positions. This system eliminates the risk of "catching a crab". (An expression used in rowing when the rower is unable to remove the oar blade from the water at the end of the drive stroke)
4. Ball bearings in hinge prevent power loss in the linkage mechanism. Smooth running ball bearings for easy oar blade feathering.
