The Rec Racer comes in two displacement hulls, the Carbon
(Ultra-Shell) or "SD Model" and the "LD Model". The "LD Model"
which is a large displacement hull, that would best fit heavier
rowers (i.e., greater than 185 lbs. and up to at 240 lbs. in flat
conditions). The length and width are the same, but the hull is made
deeper to accommodate the heavier weight rower. The standard size
hull, which best accommodates rowers up to 185 lb capacity is called
the Rec-Racer Carbon (Ultra-Shell) "SD Model" which refers to a
standard displacement hull.
The 2012 Carbon Rec-Racer (Ultra-Shell) is more rigid in
construction, yet it is still low in weight and what we consider the
best fit and finish on the market today for an entry level or open
water racing shells.
The Rec Racer is fun to row and is very responsive and the power
transmission is quite good, which results in a very quick shell. It
feels a lot like a top end racing shell, but with the stability of a
recreational boat. However, it easy to turn especially on a river
with many tight turns and can literally turn on a dime. One of the
best features is it is easy to carry by one person, because of its
Durham offers a new foot stretcher option for people that can
launch from docks. The Universal Rowing Cross Training (URXT) Snap
in Shoe Plate, allows the rower to row using their own shoes for
rowing and other activities besides rowing as well. For more
information on the K-Swiss and Adidas shoes and snap in shoe plate,
please see the following:2012
Shoe Plate Link on the Dreher website. There you will see
links to the shoes that are compatible with the shoe plate.
You would order your size and style and then have them shipped to us
to be modified to fit with your new shoe plate and then to be
married up with your new boat.
