Swift is producing oars for use with our Cadet and Cadet Mini boats or by PARA rowers, These are manufactured with purpose built tooling, so are correctly sized, not just “cut down” versions of normal scull oars.
Handles and grips
We offer 3 grip sizes, on 2 sizes of handle.
The external diameter of the handle is cut by CNC machine to fit perfectly inside the shaft, where it is securely held.
Simply loosening 2 screws allows for quick and easy length adjustment,of up to 12cm. All handles have overall length engraved, so avoiding the need to measure length each time they are adjusted..
Grades of shaft construction
Please note that even with 12cm handle adjustment range, because of reduced overall length, oars become light and also very stiff. We therefore do not offer HP grade.
CP - Club Performance
As with the regular length oars, the CP oar shafts are 70% carbon, and blades are made from carbon, with PVC foam core, and white gel coat finish. Weight and stiffness vary with length, so please see chart below for details.
Rec - Recreational
As with the regular length oars, the Rec oar shafts are 40% carbon, and blades are made from carbon & fiberglass, with PVC foam core, and light grey polyurethane paint finish. Weight and stiffness vary with length, so please see chart below for details.

The sleeve is positioned so that they are only useful for PARA rowing, where very heaving gearing/loading is wanted, such as with internationally competitive PARA rowers.
