Want to help out with a rowing innovation project?

Oar Inspired are the guys behind an innovative rowing measurement project.

They have built an instrumented oarlock that gives real time, on-water force curves and they need funding.

  1. Am a backer and would recommend anyone looking to try and improve their on the water technique to consider backing as well. Measuring power has a lot of advantages over GPS/impeller speed coaches as it means the stream/wind doesn’t affect your output, making it easier to see improvements, plus in crew boats it makes like a lot easier seeing how everyone’s power curves match up rather than having to rely on feel

  2. Also to explain kickstarter, it’s intended to be like a friendly dragons den to help a company get started by raising funds directly from potential customers (who benefit from lower costs) rather than investors. You select what you would like but payment is not taken until Day 0 and only if they have reached their target amount, and you can change your choice at any time up until day 0

  3. Thanks for helping raise awareness to our campaign Rowperfect! To anyone who may be interested, any pledge you can make to help us get to our goal of $70,000 would be greatly appreciated. This is only the beginning of what we think we can bring to the rowing world!
