Low i shaft
The Low i shaft uses high modulus carbon fiber, rather than the more standard carbon fiber used in Ultralights. Using the stiffer carbon allows us to use less material to achieve a lighter shaft. We use the same high modulus carbon in the blade of the Low i scull to achieve overall weight reduction and extremely low swing weight—the weight at the blade that is felt each time the oar changes direction. Those rowing with higher stroke rates stand to benefit from using Low i sculls. Designed for serious racers, these sculls are less resistant to impact damage than Ultralights.
