Introducing the Coxswain Seat Pad Line

Over the course of Rowing Pad’s existence, we have taken great pride in proclaiming that we have a pad for every different type of rower. Our pads come in varying thicknesses and densities, with optional comfort cutouts and our non-slip layer. The goal has always been to provide choices, because no two rowers are the same and so, naturally, rowing pads cannot be “one size fits all.”

But in our focus on providing choice, we had yet to design a pad for one major segment of the rowing community—a very important member of the crew: the coxswain.

Last summer, a member of the Bainbridge Island Rowing club, which calls the enviable waterways around Bainbridge Island, Washington, home, approached us inquiring whether we had ever considered applying our “amazing padding system” to a cox seat pad. (They had their own very special, personal inspiration behind this idea, which we will share in a future post as well.) We replied that we had not, but we immediately knew it was a challenge we wanted to take on. The Rowing Pad crew got to work.

We were pleased to deliver the first shipment of pads to the Bainbridge Island Rowing crew, who sent their enthusiastic approval and thanks. Then we were ready to share our newest products with the rest of the rowing world.

Meet the Cox Pad Lineup

Of course, there are other cox pads on the market. But, as always, we haven taken special care and applied our rowing insight to design a pad that is unparalleled in quality and performance.

Our Coxswain Seat Pad line features 3 different products: The Coxswain Seat Pad (#11700), featuring two layers of our high-performance, medium-density foam capped by a layer of soft-density foam on top to deliver unparalleled comfort and support for the crew’s VIP. The Coxswain Seat Pad Add-On (#11710), which grips the floor and protects against skidding, even in wet conditions. Finally, the first two products combine together in the ultimate bundle: the Coxswain Seat Pad with Non-Slip (#11720).

Order one today for the coxswain in your crew! Coaches, please reach out to us about outfitting your entire team with rowing pads. We provide free engraving on all bulk orders, as well as significant savings on shipping costs.
