Starting out in 2017, trail blazers Rival Kit have changed how clubs up and down the country get their rowing gear. Founded and run by ex athletes, Rival Kit understands the necessity of high quality, consistent kit for rowers to push their limits in both training and racing. The focus on great quality, custom kit delivered straight to your door has set Rival Kit apart from the competitors, and kickstarted a revolution making rowing kit (and therefore the sport as a whole) more accessible to people of all age ranges and backgrounds.

With rowing at the core of Rival Kit’s DNA, the brand understands the challenges the athletes face and are absolutely honoured to become part of the long, decorated history of one of the sport’s premier events by gearing up some of the best rowers in the world for the 168th Men’s and 77th Women’s Gemini Boat Race on Sunday 26th March 2023.
