In an effort to continue to push the boundaries of performance Dreher offers sculling blades constructed with high modulus carbon fiber. Our high modulus sculls are the lightest weight sculls offered on the market today and provide superior overall “swing weight” characteristics.
APEX-X: A high modulus version of the popular APEX blade type. The sculling blade and shaft integrate high modulus carbon, twill and standard modulus in its construction. The construction methods for the blade and shaft have been modified to improve overall scull performance by allowing greater customization of the sculls.
Dreher Alpha Sculls: The Alpha is our latest revolutionary design. This scull is our lightest with a balance point to fit the skill level and preference of each customer. These sculls are
overall the lightest weight sculls offered on the market today and provide the best overall “swing weight” characteristics. On the recovery, lower “swing weight” results in far less energy usage and is especially helpful in reducing fatigue as the stroke rating goes up. These sculls made from hybrid mix of twill and unidirectional carbon prepregs.
APEX-REX: This design incorporates the Dreher APEX RE (Round) blade with the leading edge squared off with still using the shape and while using high modulus carbon, twill and standard modulus in its construction. The blade design is a modification from the APEX-R blade shape APEX-RE provides slightly better hydrodynamic performance from the catch through the first part of the drive.
APEX-RX: This design incorporates the Dreher APEX R (Round) blade shape and while using high modulus carbon in its construction. The Apex-RX was our first sculling oar to use high modulus carbon fiber. The blade design is a modification of the Dreher APEX blade shape and eliminates the three squared corners as well as deepened the blade to change the aspect ratio of the blade to further enhance its hydrodynamic performance.
BBX: For our “traditionalists” scullers we also offer our classic hatchet style blade in high modulus carbon. This blade design maintains a loyal following and with the use of high modulus carbon fiber we are able to create a lightweight, balanced, and responsive sculling oar.
