BAT Logic wins gold at Rio 2016

BAT Logic were recently proud to announce that their ShoePlate Pro foot plate was installed in a total of 1 Gold, 6 Silver and 1 Bronze medal winning boats at the 2016 Rio Olympics Rowing events.

The BAT Logic team have been developing the innovative ShoePlate Pro QuickRelease foot plate for the past few years, and have seen the devices installed in boats worldwide. 

The click in-click out system offers rowers increased performance by enhancing leg muscle use, reducing injury through better gluteal control and enhanced stability and connection. Additionally, it also allows the user to click in and out of boats or ergometers and retain their own shoes and settings- contributing to not only an easier to use system, but also improved hygiene. 

BAT Logic approached Charlwood Design to re-develop the click in and out function of the foot plate, as well as consult on material selection, tooling design and manufacturing decisions.

The end result has seen positive results worldwide, and has been installed on many winning boats at various competitions and regattas. The BAT Logic team have been tirelessly representing their product at most events, and the results speak for themselves.

The Rio Olympics saw several medals won by teams using BAT Logic products, with the final tally as follows:


Glover / Stanning


M4x - AUS
McRae / Girdlestone / Belonogoff / Forsterling

W2x - GBR
Grainger / Thornley
