The new Magik Oarlock "Evolution" has just been released by the manufacturers.

Based on the successful MK1 design, the new oarlock incorporates some great new features which have been added as a result of user feedback. If you gave us your comments and views, thank you very much. Everything you said was passed back to the design team and we hope you'll agree that the new Magik Oarlock looks great!

The photo shows the rowing (sweep) oarlock on the left and the sculling one on the right.

Design improvements:

  • Yellow sliding lock mechanism visible from top of oarlock so you can see when it is fully engaged
  • Pivot (bottom yellow circle) redesigned to raise the level of pivot avoiding chafing against wing rigger mountings
  • Tensioning elastic band shortened to avoid chafing against wing riggers

We are looking for volunteers to test out both the sculling and rowing Magik Evolution oarlocks. If you are interested, or want your coach to see them, please email and give us your name, club and postal address. This offer is based on the expectation that if you test for us, you write a review for our website shop page.
