X Wound

X Wound

The X Wound shaft is wickedly lightweight and extremely responsive.  Designed to perform similarly to our SGG oar, with a similar flex and rebound, the X-Wound weighs half a pound less than the SGG. We shaved off that half pound by using an all-carbon exterior layer on the oar shaft.  This weight savings really adds up to less muscle strain and fatigue during a big day on the water.  The carbon matrix exterior also gives the oar it’s unique look that is sure to turn some heads.

Cataract Oars Black X Wound Oar Shaft HandleCarbon Black


Other Oar HandlesH20 Product Description

The ultimate in whitewater oar versatility.

The most convenient, innovative counterbalance oar system on the market, the H2O handle system is ideal for anyone who wants a counterbalanced oar that can easily be converted to a non-counterbalanced oar, without bulky weighted sleeves.

When you order the H2O Counterbalance System to accompany your new set of Cataract Oars, you receive four handles, or two handles per oar: an internally-weighted handle and a regular handle. The system includes two 4″ neoprene rubber sleeves (one per oar), a hex key and six hardened stainless steel screws (three per oar). The hardened screws keep your handle securely fastened into its shaft, while the neoprene sleeve keeps grit and grime out of the screw areas.
