What people think of the boat

Peter Berg

The Leo C1X boat is a great boat designed by coastal rowers for coastal rowers. We have really focused on getting a great rowing dynamic which both gives you a great feeling and also enables you to get 100% of the power you put in. The boat is a great row on flat water, but it is in rough water the Leo truly shines. It´s excellent in waves both in terms of stability, but most important it terms of speed.
