The transmission of power from rower to shell is critical to achieving optimal performance. The main points of power transmission are feet, seat and oarlock. These “transmitters” must be ergonomic, efficient, adjustable, durable, stiff and light. Our experience as rowers and coaches in consultation with industry experts has allowed us to engineer and produce the best racing shell components available. You can be confident in the performance of these components stroke after stroke, year after year. Every part of a Vespoli racing shell is covered by ourĀ 5 year Bow to Stern Warranty.
