Sawyer Oarlocks


The Sawyer Cobra Oar Lock is quite simply the best whitewater oarlock available. Proven by whitewater professionals throughout the world, Cobras enhances performance and usability, with extra range of motion for stand-up rowing, close-in sculling and more elevation to avoid hazards and obstacles.
