Efficient Rowing The effects and the mechanism of "Virtual Pivot" and "Rigid Sole". R&D Reports are available.
Smart Rowing The SRD700 Foot Stretcher Binding System provides an easy binding/releasing and stable foot condition.
Multi Adjustment The SRD700 Foot Stretcher adjusts through a wide range to flexibly change configuration to match the rower and the boat.
Virtual Pivot(VP) is a rotation axis that enables adjustment of stretcher angles depending on a rower's position. Rowers are able to keep perfect sole angles throughout the stroke in order to exert their best performance. VP is an important feature of SHIMANO ROWING DYNAMICS.
Binding System: Binding System is a structure which connects shoes to the stretcher, and was made through the innovation of racing bicycle technology of SHIMANO that provides an easy binding/releasing system. The shoes are connected to the stretcher simply by step-in, and removed by putting heels-up.
Multi Adjustment: SRD can be installed on any rowing boat. You can adjust the stretcher angle as a conventional system, and it covers any riggings needs by fixing vertical positions of the foot and width/angle of the stance.
