Technical Specification

The base of the seat comprises of a solid timber base, allowing safe and secure fixing to your rowing rollers and support unit.

We have increased the length of a standard rowing seat base to provide more support under the thighs, this has been designed to reduce the point loading onto the bottom, allowing the thighs/hamstrings to offer some additional weight bearing support.

The rear of the seat has built in raised sections to help the rower locate the optimum seating position. This also provides extra grip and stability in difficult rowing conditions.

The construction of the rowing seat includes 3 varieties of special memory foam, a layer of rebound rubber and 2 special types of robust fabric stiffeners, plus other unique items within the Icon developed design. 

The leather outer covering is a Grade A,  Icon Rowing selected premium leather hide, which is fire retardant and double thickness. This will provide a more durable outer. In the unlikely event if one leather skin fails, then we have a second to fall back on. The leather also is double skinned to hold the inner materials securely in place.

The stitching is all in marine quality waterproof nylon, triple stitched with internal waterproof webbing and stainless steel staples on the underside.

The Icon Label on the exterior is embroidered on reflective tape which helps you locate the seat at night time.

Each Icon Rowing seat is completely hand made and take about 2 days to make.

The total weight of the complete Icon rowing seat is 1100 grams (1.1 kilos).
