Jason Read, winner of the Gold Medal at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games in the Mens 8+,about WinTech Racing Shells:
Simply put, they are excellent racing shells - if not the fastest available to us in our sport. I had the opportunity to row all varieties of manufactured shells on the national team which gives me unique insight into how the boats feel, run, respond, and move while rowing them. To the extent that I am able to switch hats when coaching, there is no other boat available to us that runs as easily as the WinTechs and Kings. Watching their bows run out is exciting.
In terms of economics, the value in a WinTech is also unmatched. Same goes for the exceptional customer service by Robin Jones and the rest of their crew.
At Temple this fall I replaced 75% of our Vespoli V1 & M2 fleet with WinTechs and Kings. The athletes love the boats, I love the price. And for the first time in 16 years we are winning races. They are easy to rig, maintain, and are very, very stiff -- but not unrowable. Our novice lightweights love our WinTech medalist.

INTRODUCING THE NEW KING EIGHT RANGE
A world ahead.
In the spirit of diversity and individual preference, Wintech Racing is leading the way again with the launch of the King range of racing shells.
The creation of the Internationally celebrated hull designer, Graeme King, the King range delivers the most structurally sound and hydro-dynamically efficient racing shells in our sport.
Originally from Adelaide, Australia, Graeme King, has been dedicated to designing and hand-crafting rowing boats for over 40 years. Collaborating with Wintech Racing’s world-leading team in composite rowing shells, Graeme King’s innovation has created a line of shells many believe are unequalled. The King range is born from decades of research in slender hull theory and analysis of the physical interactions between the boat and its rowers through various phases of the stroke.
The result of this unprecedented evolutionary process? In simple terms, a hull with greater stability, durability, comfort and speed combined with classic Wintech Racing aesthetics and styling.
The decision by Wintech Racing to launch a concurrent range was as instinctive as it was pioneering. With a deep understanding of our customer’s needs and a huge ongoing investment in research and development, the evolution of Wintech Racing as the Rower’s boat of choice is no accident. Wintech Racing has been listening to rowers of every ability level and in every rowing Nation.
The King range is not replacement hull, it’s a whole new proposition.
Try it and you’ll understand.
WinTech Racing Congratulates Women’s National Team for Gold Medal Performance in Brest, Belarus
July 30, 2010
The USA Women’s National Team took out baseball bats instead of their stilettos at this year’s U23 World Rowing Championships in Brest, Belarus. They clobbered the rest of the world in the sweep boat classes (2-, 4-, and 8+) rowing WinTech Racing Shells in each event.
The US W4- began the A Finals by hammering through Australia from well over a length down taking gold by over 2 seconds in their 75kg WinTech Medalist 4-. USA’s Ashley Kroll and Felice Mueller then set a new U23 World Record in their 70kg WinTech International 2- with a time of 7:14.07. The US Women’s 8+ finished the sweep events winning by open water in their 75kg WinTech Medalist 8+.
WinTech Racing was also chosen by Germany’s W4x (Gold) and Japan’s LW1x (Silver). Additionally, the US W4x took fourth in their WinTech Medalist, a huge leap for the US sculling program.
These gold medal performances are a big boost for WinTech Racing as they steadily gain ground on other US and worldwide manufacturers. At this year's Worlds it looked like a WinTech, Filippi and Empacher battle in many of the Women’s A Finals, with WinTech taking the manufacturer’s trophy in the sweep events. Furthermore, having two WinTech shells sandwich Empachers in the A Final of the quad confirms the enthusiastic acceptance that WinTech receives from elite international coaches.
“That was a great weekend for the US National Team and we’re fired up by the results,” says Brendan Crotty, President of WinTech Racing. “We’ve been striving to surpass the industry standard set by the European manufacturers. The results at both 2009 and 2010 U23 Worlds highlight that effort and the confidence elite coaches have in our equipment.”
With their current product line’s success, quality control standards set at levels for the best crews in the world, and the exclusive distributorship of Graeme King’s new composite 8+ (coming out this fall), WinTech Racing is well positioned for more success.
“Our quality and attention to detail has been gold standard for several years now and our credibility has followed suit,” says Crotty. “WinTech’s prices have remained extremely competitive as well. That combination will continue to make perfect sense for hundreds of clubs around the world.”
