WAKA - MultiStroke Ergometer
The MultiStroke Ergo is the first Ergometer specifically designed for Waka or Outrigger, Sit-and-Switch and Pro Canoe Athletes.

Delay-proof catch.
Adjustable stoke rate frequency. Either by fan resistance adjustment or shaft length.
Adjustable / Variable load and resistance.
Correct and adjustable seat height.
Adjustable Shaft allows the use of the appropriate shaft length to give the correct ‘centre of pressure’ on the paddle blade (below the bottom hand).
Removable legs and Flywheel cage to allow easy transport and storage.
Fully and easily adjustable footrest to fit any paddler.

These ergometers precisely replicate the resistance and on-the-water feel of a Waka Ama / Outrigger / Dragon Boat / Sit-and-Switch / Va’a and Pro Canoe paddling. They allow the users to switch sides using the same shaft. The combination of catch, resistance, and glide are 3 factors which make up the true “on the water” feel of paddling. In order to replicate this, the mechanics of blade entry, relationship between the forces on the shaft, and the top guiding hand all are critical.  Coaches and paddlers can now focus on this and perfect their technique.

The on-board console is able to receive input of the performing athlete’s weight. It is important to input the user’s weight in order to ensure that the data output for each MultiStroke is specific to the weight of the athlete that is using it.

If no athlete’s weight is entered, a default weight of 75 kg or 168 lbs is automatically used. 

The standard on-board console should be calibrated each time the MultiStroke is used – this will ensure consistency and accuracy of data output and consistency between MultiStroke Ergometers.

Please note: the Waka / OM1 ergometer ships with a fixed moulded seat.
