ADAPTIVE EQUIPMENT
 
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. As the sport evolves you can be assured WinTech will continue to incorporate the latest innovations in adaptive rowing.

The new 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.

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.
