Swift Racing sculling oars are designed to deliver optimum performance, ease of use and reliability – helping to make your boat go faster, for less.

We offer three types of oar:

High Performance
An ultra-light oar with 95% carbon shaft, designed for elite scullers and those looking for the lightest specification.
Club Performance
A 70% carbon shaft, perfect for club-level competition.
These oars have shafts with 40% carbon and have about 20% more flex than Club Performance oars (around 70g heavier per oar). They are therefore ideal for young beginners and casual and recreational rowers.
Each type of oar comes with a choice of handles and rubber grip sizes, giving you the best possible levels of grip, hand-fit and finger positioning.

Our cleaver 'SmoothA2' blade is designed to give you the optimum combination of quick catches, reduced blade slippage, even load and smooth finishes. They also come with a choice of edge protectors, to prolong the life of your blades. Traditional Macon style blades are also available.

The oars come in two adjustable length ranges (283-289cm and 286-292cm) to suit all levels and requirements. We can also supply shorter length oars for our Para and Cadet boats. All oar shafts are of medium stiffness for the best combination of flex and usability.

Swift Racing sculling oars are made in our own factory, using our in-house expertise in the latest composite manufacturing techniques.

All oars come with a 2 year manufacturer's warranty, to give you full peace of mind.
