Citius-Remex ProW Seat Pad
More Comfort, Better Performance!
ABOUT EASY GOING ROWING
Rowing should be Easier Going.
I'm William Esterhuizen, and I have been a competitive rower ever since I started rowing in high school. Distance rowing of any kind can hurt your "butt" and if you're like me, you need something to help you finish the workout. Over the years I have purchased and evaluated several seat pads and found none really worked for me until I tried the Citius-Remex ProW seat pad. What a difference! If you want to row in more comfort and go faster then you should give this seat pad a chance to show what you can accomplish. I'm so convinced about the Citius-Remex ProW seat pads that I'm now the distributor/sales agent for the US and Canada and why I started Easy Going Rowing.
What EXACTLY is a ProW?
Concept2, Hydrow, Row Perfect Dynamic, Coffey SimulatOar, BioRower, or rowing shell - The Citius-Remex ProW works with all rowing machines.
The ProW has an innovative shape that relieves bottom pain and helps to improve your rowing workout. It differs from conventional rowing seats in several ways:
The ProW has a ‘saddle’ projection in the middle, and the holes are elliptical to create optimal pressure distribution.
The ProW has an opening for the tailbone and a projection in the back to help to improve your technique. The projection simply makes it easier to sit up in the finish and go from stroke to recovery phase.
Hard rowing seats often hurt, slip and slide causing frustration and a disrupted and spoiled workout session. In contrast, the ProW is produced inflexible material and has a non-slip surface increasing the comfort and effectiveness of your performance.
ProW accommodates various body forms and pushing techniques, which otherwise can result in numb legs, pain, and injuries.
ProW was developed and tested by Olympic and World Champions. Eskild Ebbesen, Steffen Bonde, and Jacob Barsøe, with over 50 years of combined rowing experience and knowledge between them they worked with medical professionals to develop this unique seat pad.

Frank Biller, The University Of Virginia's coach for the men's program had this to say about ProW seat pads.
"It's more than just a cushy seat pad. The ProW is different than any other pad on the market and helped my crews to row better on the erg and faster in the boat. It was more intuitive for the rowers on the ergs as well as we were able to improve the coordination of the rowers (between the glutes and hamstrings) on the machine and in the boat".
Less injury time means more quality training sessions. "The ProW helped eliminate injury and the significant training days that would have been lost to the program".
"We purchased a seat pad for every rower in the program in 2021 and made it mandatory for use on the erg, and optional in the boat. The results speak for themselves".

I just wanted to write to thank you so much for your work on this fabulous seat pad innovation. I have spent the last years getting on the erg and in the boat less and less until finally it was as if I was not a rower at all. When corona hit I decided to get back on the erg since I had one at home. Though I pushed through, each session was so painful on my back and hip so I had to get off the erg every 10 minutes and rarely did more than 20 minutes at a time. My husband saw my sorry state of barely walking after an erg session and had me try your seat pad. BANG . . . . I have worked up to almost an hour on the erg without getting up. It is such an amazing difference. I can really keep my form instead of just trying to get through the meters. I am a new woman to say the least and I have you to thank.
Also, I have been getting back on the water and using your seat in the boat with wonderful results. Pain made me think I was done with rowing but now I know that I am not. I will be singing your praise and recommending your seat pad to everyone who notices that I am back on the water! Full credit to you!

I first learned of and personally tried the Citius-Remex ProW seat pad in 2020. I immediately recognized the comfort and posture changes on the erg and in a boat. In the spring of 2021 I tested the seat pad with the high school crews that I coach.
Without informing novice and experienced rowers of the purpose of the seat, 10 rowers tested the seat with noticeable change in posture and swing. Each rower was also able to describe the feeling and changes they experienced. As a result, we purchased 24 seats and utilized them with our novice crews and experienced rowers with the worst posture and flexibility to the catch.
This season, we tested the sets again with 2 experienced crews. We could see a noticeable improvement in posture and hip rotation. An additional 20 seats have been purchased and put into use. I am convinced this seat pad adds to comfort, posture, flexibility, and speed.
