What Sets Us Apart

Tool Free Adjustable Sleeve/CollarInnovative 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. 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 began offering the revolutionary tool-free adjustment on all Dreher adjustable sculling oars. This feature allows on-the-water adjustment.
