As a coach, you work really hard to figure out what it really takes to make your crew faster. No matter what, on some level it's guesswork. NK® has changed that with the revolutionary SpeedCoach XL3. The SpeedCoach XL3 incorporates a powerful digital spread spectrum transceiver capable of sending and receiving all of a crew's performance information in real time, up to 400 meters away. Buy two SpeedCoach XL3's—one for the shell, and one for your launch—and you'll be able to see your crew's speed/pace, distance, time, average speed/pace, stroke rate and stroke count updated on your coach unit every stroke, in real time. Add more XL3's for other boats and continue to monitor them with just one coach unit—you can page between data screens for up to 9 boats in your network. (You can assign each boat a 5-character name to facilitate review.) To monitor more than one crew without changing screens, or to allow other coaches to monitor the same crews, simply add more units to act as receivers. Advanced network security ensures that only you see the boats in your network, and that there's no interference between XL units, even on busy rivers. The SpeedCoach XL3 has all the other features and capabilities of the XL1 model: customizable display, programmable workouts, extensive memory, computer upload with the optional interface, backlight and rechargeable batteries. (Fully charged batteries will provide 8 hours of use while transmitting/receiving.)
StrokeCoach with Surge Rate The StrokeCoach has joined the 21st Century! The new StrokeCoach with Surge Rate will work in any boat - shell, dragon boat, canoe or kayak to give you a perfect stroke rate every time with no harness or seat magnet! Through the use of an accelerometer, this new innovative unit can tell you the stroke rate for the boat in any position. This unit is waterproof so you could even rest it on the floor of the boat between your feet! Have a team boat? No problem! The StrokeCoach with Surge Rate will still give you an accurate stroke rate each and every time! Tested by our team of rowers and paddlers and proven to possibly be the best addition to the NK line ever.
The unit comes with batteries, a carry pouch, a lanyard, your color choice of protective bumper and a mounting system. The mounting system consists of a mount and an adjustable strap system that allows you to strap it on anywhere - or you can still use the traditional T or A bracket mounting systems. We've added in a backlight so no more flashlights during those early morning rows.

For the serious athlete, the XL4 offers a complete performance monitoring system that maximizes the effectiveness of your training and coaching, for less than the cost of a pair of sculls. The SpeedCoach XL4 combines ALL of the benefits of the XL2 and XL3 models. As an athlete, you get all of the benefits of monitoring your heart rate in the shell, together with the ability to transmit your performance data when you're working with a coach. As a coach, you can be certain that your athletes are not exceeding or falling short of your intensity targets. And you don't need two XL4's to transmit and monitor heart rate; the coach can use an XL3 unit so long as there's an XL4 in the rowing shell. We're often asked by coaches whether they can monitor heart rate on more than one athlete in a crew. At present, NK® can only guarantee interference-free readings for XL heart rate monitors when there is only ONE chest-belt transmitter within a 6-foot range of the heart rate sensor at any time. As a result, it is possible to use two monitors in a pair or double by placing the stroke seat sensor close to the stern end of the seat deck, and the bow-seat sensor close to the bow end of the deck. In larger shells, the monitors and sensors will need to be at least two seats apart (i.e. at 2 and 4 seats, not at 2 and 3 seats). Within these limitations, each athlete you wish to monitor will need an XL4, heart rate sensor and chest belt transmitter. To monitor and transmit heart rate only, simply secure the XL units and sensors at each seat (we sell an inexpensive mount with no wires for this purpose). Each XL4 can be named with the seat number or athlete's name to facilitate review. As you page through the transmitted data in the coach's launch, you will see each athlete's heart rate on their data screen. If a unit is mounted on a full SpeedCoach wiring harness, that unit will also transmit performance data. If you would like the athletes to have have access to full performance information on their XL units, you can install multiple wiring harnesses reading from the same impeller. This will also permit easier review of stored heart rate data coordinated with stored performance data for the shell.
A former Olympic rower reflects on his evolution from ultra-competitive athlete to supportive coach and offers his game-changing thoughts on achieving success.
Once the embodiment of an aggressive athlete, Jason Dorland used to identify himself according to the results of his competitions--winner or loser. The elite rower was raised with an "in-it-to-win-it" attitude and was trained to think of every competitor as an enemy. It took a devastating loss at the 1988 Olympic Games to shatter this destructive way of thinking, and it took the advice of middle-distance runner Robyn Meagher (who would later become Dorland's wife) to help re-shape his views on what it truly means to win--both in sport and in life.
Voted the most-read book by the International Rowing Association, Rowing Faster achieved unparalleled success. Gold-medal coaches, championship athletes, and top scientists have infused the latest scientific training and racing principles into this edition. It is required reading for rowers and coaches.
