What Sets Us Apart

TFA_Sleeve_Collar_Assembly_600x600_300RInnovative Design

Dreher carbon fiber parts are made from premium quality carbon fiber prepreg with all design done in-house as well as the tooling and manufacturing of the parts. Dreher was the innovator for the adjustable oar, use of carbon in the handle, blades and shafts, and autoclaving of the shafts. Dreher lead the market with the use of aerodynamic elliptical shaft, which minimizes drag in the last third of the shaft. In 2016 we are now offering the revolutionary tool-free adjustment on all Dreher adjustable sculling oars instead of the just on the 2015 Alpha sculling oars. This feature allows on-the-water, hand adjustment of load in less than a minute.  See photo to the left showing mechanism for inboard / outboard adjustment.
