The Echo Sport
Recreational, Open Water Rowing and Open Water Racing
The Echo Sport is our most popular shell. The Sport is the same hull and deck as the Classic. However, the Sport features a carbon fiber seat and foot stretcher, that, when combined with the all white gel coat, lowers the Sport's weight a few pounds below the Classic. The sporty look adds a different energy to your rowing experience.
It’s simple hull design allows it to be easily driven through flat water while it’s 21” waterline beam also means it is reassuring and stable in rough water.
The Echo Sport features the unique Echo Folding Rigger system which makes it easy for one person to transport. At 55 pounds fully rigged, the Echo Sport weighs the same as a comparably sized sea kayak and can easily “car topped”, without the hassle of cumbersome manually inserted rowing structures.
The Echo Sport also has two 4” cockpit watertight access ports with cat bags for keys, wallets, phones and accessories. There is also a built in suction bailer in the cockpit along with carrying handles on the bow and stern. Finally the EchoSport has a deck bungee, a lightweight carbon fiber foot stretcher that can accommodate all sizes and a light and comfortable carbon fiber seat. In addition to the carbon fiber foot stretchers and seat, the Echo Sport is distinguished by it’s black riggers and deck stripes. This boat is designed for all rowing skill levels. Finally, rowing has tremendous health benefits. It is low impact, is terrific for your cardiovascular system and burns on average 600 calories per hours versus a typical kayak or paddle board that burns about 350 calories per hour.
