Rowing with bare legs? Get protection from slide bites


We’re so glad that summer is finally here and we’re able to row without wearing leggings.  Are your bare legs are now suffering from “slide bites”?

You know – the part of the rowing boat slide that cuts into your calf so it bleeds.  Maybe you’ve got different cuts for your eight, four and pair – all symmetrically arranged down the back of your legs?  We have the solution – a tidy pair of calf skin protectors.

Special offer for Rowperfect news readers this week only (until Wednesday May 18th, 2011).  Buy Calf skins and get 5% off.  Use the discount code BARELEGS when buying.

Made from double knitted fabric padded over the calf and with an elasticated cuff top and bottom.
