The SRD600 Foot Stretcher is equipped with a Virtual Pivot mechanism that allows the foot stretcher to rotate to keep the feet at the optimum power transmission angle as the rower’s posture changes. This improves rowing movement efficiency and gives the rower revolutionary ease of motion. A binding between the SRD600 Foot Stretcher and the SRD600 Rowing Shoes completes the system. With this system crew members can use their own shoes―gone is the necessity of sharing footwear. Further, the independent binding units on the right and left sides can be easily adjusted to change the stance. Another advantage of the SRD600 Foot Stretcher is that it can be adjusted for installation in almost any boat regardless of manufacturer or type.
