rowtex pro - our top seller for hobby rowers and coastal rowing

Our new rowtex pro was developed based on its highly successful predecessor. The focus has again been placed on functionality and design, what led to the following changes:

Curvature: The rowtex pro is more curved in its basic form, which prevents the creation of wrinkles on the palm. Protection against blisters is guaranteed even better.

Material: On the palm of the hand, we use a fine and softe artificial leather. It does not impair the rowing feeling and dries fast. 
On the back of the hand, a soft mesh material ensures breathability.

Design: The design of the black rowtex pro is classic and elegant. In addition, experienced rowers immediately recognize the specific red / green elements, characteristic for Backboard / Starboard.

Touch function: Whether you want to track your rowing sessions with your smartphone, take photos, or post on social media - our gloves come with a touch function.

Reinforcements: The original reinforcements were complemented by elements around the thumb area. These protect your hands, especially the inner hand when rowing (not sculling).


Velcro: We use a new, very thin velcro that does not impair your movements.

Bags: Our new gloves come in a useful, breathable bag. The bag is not only practicable, but it also makes sure that the gloves dry after rowing sessions.

We recommend that you choose the smaller glove size if you are uncertain (e.g., take size 8 if your measurement result is 8.5).
