Rowing with Riggers:
Traditional rowers have long utilized a fixed seat and fixed oars. Sometime ago, the mechanical advantage of a sliding seat became known, followed by a fixed seat in concert with a sliding rigger.
Both sliding systems allow for the use of the full potential of the human rower, leading to a more efficient, full-body rowing experience.
The Gryffyn GRS1 is an advanced new sliding rigger system with distinct advantages over many other similar systems, designed for maximum efficiency, ease of use and convenient transport/storage!
The oars can be stowed while you are underway so that your hands are free for camera, binoculars, clothing, snacks, fishing, etc.
The GSR1 Sliding Rigger:
The SR1 Sliding Rigger is a “V” rigger mounted on a trolley which rides back and forth on a pair of rails. It is propelled by the rower’s legs while the rower’s body remains firmly seated in a rower-supplied seat that is affixed to the watercraft. When combined with a pair of Gryffyn Series 100 or Series 79 forward rowing gearboxes with oars, the result is a complete forward rowing system.
