S4 Sculling Shaft

These shafts are full carbon shafts made using various layers of standard modulus carbon. They achieve a balance of maximum strength and minimum weight.

S4 Soft

These 100% carbon shafts exhibit crisper catches and allow higher rating than our elite level S2 Soft models. They are ideal for juniors, women, as well as men below the pre-elite level. It is a also popular choice for smaller elite openweight women racing the single scull. It is well matched to scullers with 2km erg scores slower than 7:00, water times in the 1x around 7:45 or slower for 2km, or for those who desire a slightly more forgiving feel at the catch.

S4 Standard

These are the premiere sculling shafts for men’s senior and elite competition, as well as world-class elite women. The shafts are 100% carbon and exhibit crisper catches higher rating than our elite level S2 models. This has been the oar for anyone pursuing National Team goals, but also for anyone who wants every mile to feel exquisite. The recommended 2km erg score is 6:30 and faster, or a water time in the 1x for 2km faster than 7:30.

 

S4 Sculling Blades

Slick Sculling Blade

The Slick sculling blade is normally assembled with a 40mm hook. A smaller blade is available for women and schoolgirls who want a slightly lighter load at the catch. Slick blades areavailable on all shafts.

The Slick blade is now available with closed edges, which improves the blade's durability and overall performance. The Slick blade has no ridgeline so there is less splash at the catch.

The low volume blade enters the water quickly and quietly and floats low in the water. The longitudinal curvature is perpendicular to the tip and so is in line with the flow of water.  It has a constant pitch across the tip and all lines parallel to the tip.The gentle asymmetric curvature of the blade assures a clean release from the water with every stroke.Slick blades are visibly cleaner than other blades. The Slick blade does not exhibit any negative tendencies during recovery or in bad weather.  Since the Slick blades introduction it has been extremely successful at all levels of rowing.
 
Macon Sculling Blade

The Macon blades are the original blade design. The blade was first manufactured in timber. Although the Macon blade is not used in the racing world anymore, recreational rowers prefer them and they are a good blade for learners. 

The Macon blade is available on all shafts upon request and now comes with closed edges for increased durability and overall performance.

 

Sculling Handles & Grips

We have designed our sculling handles with comfort and ease of use as our highest priority. Selecting a handle that is correct for you is necessary to achieve the best performance. A handle that is too small will cause trouble in the rough water and may turn in the rowers hand uncontrollably. 

A handle that is too big will fatigue the rower’s forearms and also result in excessive wrist movement feathering the oar. All our sculling handles come fitted with our injection moulded thermoplastic grips. These second generation grips have gained universal acceptance since their release.
From the initial work that we have done there seems to be a strong correlation between hand size (measured from the base of the thumb and the tip of the fingers) and preferred grip size. 

We have collected enough data so that we are now able to print a simple chart relating hand size to grip size for sculling and rowing. This will enable coaches to order the most suitable handles, particularly for school rowers.

Carbon Adjustable Sculling Handles

The carbon handles are available in three sizes: small (26mm black end cap), medium (29mm yellow end cap), and large (32mm white end cap).

Sculling Grips

Our sculling grips are very popular all over the world. They are made from injection moulded thermoplastic elastomer. 

They are ergonomically shaped to fit different hand sizes, the larger the grip the larger the spacing between fingers.

The sculling handles have five grip sizes:

PINK (small)

31mm outside diameter, fits onto the small handle (black end cap)

YELLOW (intermediate)

34mm outside diameter, fits onto the medium handle(yellow end cap)

BLUE (standard)

35mm outside diameter, fits onto the medium handle (yellow end cap)

GREY (large)

37mm outside diameter, fits onto large handle (white end cap)

GREEN (extra-large)

39mm outside diameter, fits onto large handle, no finger spacing (white end cap)
