Our Bantam sculls use a standard Ultralight shaft and our Compact Blade. The result is an oar with the same weight and balance as an Ultralight racing scull but with added durability and lower price—all without compromising function or the rowing experience.
Bantam Sculls are well-suited to a variety of users including youth, recreational, beginners, and masters athletes.
Bantam Scull Features
The Compact Blade is a cost effective injection-molded design that maintains the same weight and balance as an Ultralight racing scull.
Comparable width to our Smoothie2 and Fat2 carbon blades. By maintaining this width, the blade is stable in the water and remains efficient.
10 cm shorter than Smoothie2 and Fat2 blades.
Reduced surface area results in a nimble, easy-to-handle blade with the same weight as a Smoothie2 carbon blade.
Injection molded polypropylene is less stiff than carbon fiber composites, but is durable and inexpensive to replace.
White factory finish. 52 solid paint color choices available for an additional charge.
The suggested oar length of 281–286 cm is well-suited to a large variety of users and represents the blade’s balanced loading profile, which falls between a Fat2 and Smoothie2 Plain Edge blade.
