I love this seat pad. I use it in the boat and especially on the ergo. It has totally solved the cramps I used to experience in the hamstrings and ass after 45-minutes on the ergo or in the boat. At first it did feel a little strange to use. It took a few uses to get used to the different position on the seat, and the unique contouring. I thought I may need to use some double sided tape or velcro, to fix the pad in place, yet the seat stays put.

I have been loving the low seat pad, and now can’t row without it. Look forward to it and sitting on one in Tokyo!!

Generally, the most significant change (using the Citius Remex ProW) is the feeling that pelvis is set up straight during the stroke and release. It also helps a little bit to come back after the end of the stroke. This body setting may cause another perceptible effect – better leg drive. Summarising the above, rowing at higher strokes is little bit more enjoyable. The ProW adheres to a bigger surface of the body than standard seats meaning that there is less pain caused during long training sessions. For instance, change in skin damage is noticeable.
