The ProW has an innovative shape that relieves glute and upper hamstring pain and thereby helps improve your erg workout. This is the HIGH version – designed for athletes over 85kg.
It differs from conventional rowing seats in more ways: It has a ‘saddle’/projection in the middle and the holes are elliptical to create optimal pressure distribution from your pelvis. Further, the ProW has an opening for your tailbone and a projection at the back which helps to improve your technique. The projection simply makes it easier to sit up at the finish and transition from stroke to recovery phase.
Designed by Danish lightweight international rowers it is recommended mainly for use on top of a regular Concept2 rowing seat. But it can also be taped to a seat in the boat using double sided adhesive tape (supplied).
Manufacturer recommends allowing 3-5 training sessions to adapt and learn to use the seat. It reshapes to suit your body shape by 10-20% over time with frequent use.
The material is smooth when new and the top surface rubs off with use making the seat non-slip. There is tape on the back of the seat for you to glue to the C2 which will help fix the seat until the surface material is fully rubbed off.
