The Dreher Aero is a new design for carbon oars and sculls. The result is the first oar that attempts to overcome air resistance on the oar shaft and blade in the recovery phase. The result – a shaft shaped like an aerofoil. Follow link for photos and specifications

We also have more photos of the new Rowperfect Indoor Sculler shown in Boston, USA at the Head of the Charles.
