Maintenance





BRACA-SPORT® oars are designed to withstand forces during all high performance rowing workloads. To avoid common problems and keep your oars in high performance condition, we recommend the following procedures and rules:

  • Do not keep the oars in the direct sunlight for long periods of time.
  • Do not load or stock any weight on the oars.
  • Avoid pushing off docks or shorelines with oar blades.
  • Rinse oars with fresh water after each use, paying special attention to adjustable mechanisms, collars and oarlocks. Wash it with boat soap once a week, and if used in salt water after each use.
  • Oars with adjustable handles used in fresh water must be disassembled and cleaned once a week. If used in the salty water conditions must be disassembled and cleaned after each use. Failure to do so may cause irreparable damage to the adjuster.
  • Do not row at greater than 50% power if everyone in the boat is not rowing.
  • Avoid any type of collision, smash, hit or drop. Oars produced from carbon fiber materials are extremely durable, but there is no guarantee they will withstand above incidents.
  • Inspect the oars on a regular basis for signs of damage. Repairing the damage at the earliest stage can prolong the lifetime of your oars.
  • Only allow authorized professionals to repair your oars.
  • Keep the oars away from high-voltage power sources. Carbon fiber oars are electrically conductive! DANGER - HIGH VOLTAGE KEEP OUT
