Mould 409 is undeniably a very fast boat. Based on the FISA shape designed by Klaus Filter, Jeff Sykes refinded and smoothed the shape to make it our own in the 1990s. In 2013 the AUS W4- won a bronze medal and the Penrith Cup Interstate LM4- was won by Queensland, both in Mould 409. This boat is one of Sykes most popular shapes which is rowed equally successfully as a quad or four. Mould 409 is most commonly rowed by lightweight men and heavyweight women.

Spectra Steering System image

Spectra Steering System

Spectra is a Kevlar-based product that is corrosion-proof and easy to use. Compared to the stainless steel wiring mechanism, the spectra system is lighter, more durable, corrosion proof and it does not stretch. A great innovation by Sykes.

Dual Locking Backarm image

Dual Locking Backarm

The new sliding adjustable type back arms have a dual locking system. The 6mm bolt locks the backarm in place via an internal nut. The large ribbed plastic locknut is then tightened against the end of the back arm tube. This gives secondary support and ensures the force is well supported. The adjustment range is 70mm which easily allows for span changes on the rigger.
