What exactly are RowVista and RowMotion?

What exactly is RowVista?

The innovative RowVista forward rowing system provides the same performance as traditional rowing configurations, but with an entirely new experience. Facing the direction you are going allows you to correct your course more easily and gives you more control over your boat and oars. The patented blade feathering will make RowVista the rowing setup of your dreams.

Row Forward with RowVista

With traditional rowing, you are pulling the boat backward, and your line of sight is in the opposite direction in which you are traveling. With RowVista, you are pulling the boat forward, and your line of sight is forward, the direction you are headed, much like driving a car or operating a powerboat! When moving along, the wind will blow in your face instead of the back of your head, making your time on the water more enjoyable and increasing your endurance. Hard stops prevent you from over-feathering or over-squaring the blades for a perfect stroke every time.

Rowonair History Image Proudly Made in Austria Image Built for professionals and new rowers alike, the ROWonAIR design and development team sat down with rowing athletes to better understand the requirements of professional rowers. Together, they were able to solve a problem that 250 other patented forward rowing systems could not: blade feathering.
