THE BEST OAR FOR ALL DAY ROWING
Grab an X Wound™ Cataract® Oar and give your muscles huge relief. X Wound™ oars shore muscle fatigue by shaving off a ½ pound of weight from the shaft. Consequently, your energy lasts longer giving you more time on the river. More energy for casting your line, more intensity in navigating gnarly drops. Simply put, more stamina for doing what you love all day long.
Overall oar lengths include the 27″ long blade (sold separately). For a list of ACTUAL shaft lengths, see the “Specs” section.
A CARBON FIBER OAR WITH GREAT FLEX
The X wound™ oar gives you the same great flex and rebound of a wood oar while eliminating much of the maintenance. Wood oars can be costly to keep up with. Water and sunlight cause wood to become brittle over time. Without near constant maintenance, wood oars quickly become weakened. The Cataract® X Wound™ is not so easily compromised. Carbon fiber is not affected by water and does much better in the sun. No need for such stringent maintenance schedules. And what’s more, to further protect your carbon fiber oar from the sun’s damaging UV rays, every X Wound™ oar comes with a tough, urethane finish. Less maintenance equals more time to play, and with twice the breaking strength of aluminum, you can play hard with oars you can trust.
LIGHTER OARS FOR PUSHING FURTHER
Another great benefit of the X Wound’s™ full carbon outer layer is the exceptional weight savings. A half a pound may not seem like much, but over a long stretch of river, it’s noticeable. Most carbon fiber oars boast low weight, however, they are so stiff whatever you save your muscles in weight you make up for in the loss of power transfer. The X Wound™ is different. the interior layers of the oar are the same composite construction – namely carbon fiber and fiberglass – that make the SGG™ the best composite oar on the river. Yet, the exterior layer is fully carbon fiber in our unique x-woven pattern. This innovative design gives you a lighter carbon fiber oar that boasts the flex of wood oars with the exceptional power transfer Cataract® Oars are known for having. It’s a design that looks good and feels good. The X Wound™ oar has that sensational carbon x-weave that turns heads, so you can show off your style and save your back at the same time. Discover the benefits for yourself. Pick one up and create a lifetime of happy river memories.
