Adaptive Equipment

OVERVIEW 

WinTech is committed to the development of adaptive rowing and equipment worldwide. Our line of adaptive rowing shells, the Explorer 21 single and 30 double, pontoons, fixed seats and other accessories was developed in response to research and testing with members of the adaptive rowing community. WinTech’s director of research and development, chief engineer, and renowned designer Klaus Filter spent many months perfecting designs that meet the needs of adaptive rowers. Klaus designs became the FISA standard for Paralympic rowing events. As the sport evolves you can be assured WinTech will continue to incorporate the latest innovations in adaptive rowing. WinTech is an official supplier of adaptive boats for FISA sanctioned rowing events and the WinTech Explorer 21 and 30 boats have been used by adaptive athletes in every Olympics since the 2008 Paralympics, Beijing, China

WinTech has complete line of adaptive equipment and accessories to suit your needs for training and racing on and off the water.

WinTech Fixed Seat 


Item: 7800L WinTech Fixed Seat & Adjustable Seat Tracks 

The WinTech Adaptive Fixed Seat can be installed on any recreational single that can accommodate an approximate 13.5”/34cm mounting area on the seat deck. Seat attaches to the seat deck using a pair of special attachment tracks. These tracks allow the seat to be adjusted fore or aft in 1 inch increments with the click of a button. Tracks are located at 300mm width in accordance with FISA Adaptive rules. WinTech adaptive tracks fit right into existing holes for sliding seat tracks on all WinTech Explorers. (Older model Explorers may need to be re-drilled). Seat back can be adjusted for height and layback using quick release cams. Installation directions and all fasteners are included with these special seat tracks. Seat belt, chest strap, lap strap included.
