Partners

Official Boat-Building Partner – HUDSON UK

In the wild, a SHARK is a marvel of evolution and one of nature’s most successful, most enduring designs — over thousands of years, it has evolved, refined, and adapted to its environment to become the world’s most fearsome predator.

And it’s from this magnificent creature that we draw our inspiration. After all, when you’re chasing your personal best or your competition, what better mindset to emulate than a SHARK?

HUDSON have regularly produced boats for Olympic gold medallists, whilst their operations span three continents. They feature at the summit of every major rowing event in the world and have recently opened a services centre in Reading, UK.

 

Official Oar Partner – Croker Oars

For well over 50 years Croker Oars have crafted premium stilllwater oars for the rowing community and the pink sleeve has become an international icon, recognisable from afar.

Croker Oars continue to innovate in the sport of rowing, always searching for new and improved technology to create quality products for rowers to perform at their absolute best.

 

Official Indoor Rowing Partner – RP3 Rowing

The rowing machine that feels like a rowing boat.

The RP3 teaches three things – aligned athlete power forces, continuous power delivery and rowing-specific fitness.  Connecting up to 8 RP3 machines and handles together teaches crew synchronisation.

Its dynamic movement is kinder on the back and knees because the loadings are similar to a boat.

Winning UK junior crews are using RP3 for their land training.

Its sophisticated software gives real-time force curves which coaches love because it teaches technique alignment as well as power / fitness.  All scores are comparable to C2 splits and weight / boat-class adjusted scores can be programmed.

Default readouts are equivalent to C2.

The RP3 hardware accessories include link bars to connect machines, handle connectors, vertical storage and an improved seat.  A wireless interface that connects the RP3 Rowing app over Bluetooth was released in September.  An IoS app is in the pipeline as well as data connections with programs such as Strava.

 

Official Bio-Mechanics Partner – BAT Logic/Project B

BAT is an acronym formed from the ancient languages of anatomy and the Olympics, Greek and Latin, which represents ”superior understanding of the workings of the body’

Our products and knowledge help people to achieve their goals and reach their full potential while reducing the risk of injury.

Project B is the new flagship enterprise between BAT Logic and Bont Rowing and provides products and knowledge which help people to achieve their goals and reach their full potential while reducing the risk of injury. Beginning with a full range of rowing shoes that have already found global success in their first few months since launch, the new partnership aims to bring the rowing world a range of advancements in equipment.
Countless Olympians, world championship winners, colleges and schools have used BAT Logic products to enable them to produce their best in rowing for the last 9 years. The other half of Project B, Bont Cycling, are known for their technical innovations in cycling shoes, having been successful at World, Olympic and Professional levels of that sport but have an absolute focus on rowing – their CEO has been a passionate rower for over 35 years who is also involved with coaching at various levels. Project B are keen to push the boundaries for all rowers. Injury prevention and marginal gains are important subjects in the context of junior rowing, and JRN are excited to bring the expertise of Project B to the circuit. Project B stands for innovation, athletes, performance and quality.

As an athlete, your body is your weapon and we want you fully armed to be your best. Rowing has a high rate of injury, particularly around the spine, pelvis and ribs. Our equipment is designed specifically to support the mechanics of rowing and the demands they place on your body.
