RowVista®

High-tech forward rowing system

With RowVista®, the innovative system with linkage mechanism and blade feathering integrated, you row in the direction you are facing and can avoid damaging your boat and sculls. 

  • It is easy to stabilise the boat while looking ahead > you can constantly adjust the course.
  • It is a huge advantage to be able to see the blade in motion if there are waves. You can see the wave troughs > perfect for open water rowing and crossing the bow wave of larger boats. 
  • Thanks to the ball bearings, no power is lost in the mechanism.

The RowVista® forward rowing sculls are foldable and are only 1.13 m (44.5") long when separated. Attach and secure the Rowing Skid quickly and easily to the DUDE 18, MOJO 18, iCOASTER 18, AIRKAYAK 16,
LITE 15 or your own Stand Up Paddle board, canoe, kayak, canadian canoe and convert it into a high-performance sculling boat with sliding seat.

  1. The powerful rocker arm transmits and amplifies the rotation of the handle to the scull 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 scull.
  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 scull 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 scull blade feathering. That protects your hands and minimizes the formation of blisters.
  5. Carbon fiber tubes for handle and scull blade: smooth rowing thanks to lightweight materials, even in the toughest conditions.
  6. Release leash to easily and quickly fold up the sculls.
  7. High strength pivot rowlock so the RowVista® forward rowing sculls can easily be attached and removed.

A technical masterpiece: rowing forward with blade feathering. This is a real first for forward rowing systems. And it is even easier to rotate than with classic rowing systems because the axis is mounted on ball bearings. The main reason why you get blisters on your hands using standard sculls is because the sculling sleeve is relatively difficult to rotate in the rowlock. With this system, rotation is controlled in both directions so that the blade is always in the right position. As a result, rowing with RowVista® is easier to learn than classic rowing. All of your energy is transmitted to the scull blade thanks to the highly efficient linkage. The handle shaft and blade shaft can be folded up and are self-locking.

High-quality carbon and sea water resistant aluminium.

High quality, high strength rowlock, so RowVista® forward sculls can easily be attached and removed. 

Pivot rowlock that allows scull to be pivoted completely parallel to the boat.

The main reason why you get blisters on your hands using standard sculls is because the sculling sleeve is relatively difficult to rotate in the rowlock. 

  • As a result, rowing with RowVista is easier to learn than classic rowing.
  • No energy is wasted thanks to the high quality jointed rowlocks with ball bearings. 
  • The handle tube and blade tube can be folded up and are self-locking.
