Rowing, Party of One.

Designed to work specifically with the ROWonAIR® Universal Rowing Units, the Lite 15 is an inflatable rowing I-board designed for high performance solo rowing.

ROWonAIR I-boards are not flat bottom boards, they have a slight V-shaped bottom that aids with tracking and hydrodynamics to cut through the water. The Lite 15 is long and narrow and turns every stroke into effortless gliding. This is the perfect board for more experienced rowers looking for performance and feel similar to a rowing shell. Easily stowed away and comes with a backpack, repair kit, fin, pump, and strap.

This is the lightest-weight board option that ROWonAIR offers

Length: 15' | Width: 26"

Weight: 21 lbs | Bag Size: 28" x 16" x 12"

Carry Capacity: 353 lbs

The Lite 15 can be purchased as a standalone board, or preconfigured with ROWonAIR’s exclusive RowVista®, or RowMotion® (with or without oars) rowing units.

Lite 15 Features & Innovations

The Lite 15 is the smallest board in the I-board lineup from ROWonAIR. This board was the answer to calls from solo rowers wanting an even lighter craft at a lower price point than the Dude and Mojo boards. The Lite 15 is the perfect board to keep in your closet or under your dorm room bed. Throw it in the water when you have a spare minute for a quick row on your way home from work or between classes.
