Dreissigacker Racing Oars
Athletes at all levels of the sport around the world rely on Concept2.
- 64% of all Olympic medalists raced with Concept2 oars in Beijing.
- 77% of all gold medalists at the 2010 World Championships used Concept2 oars and sculls.
- 2010 U.S. national champion collegiate varsity crews from Cal-Berkeley, Yale, Princeton and Mercyhurst raced with Concept2 oars.
For Peter and Dick Dreissigacker, rowing is a lifelong passion and engineering is a way of life. The Dreissigacker brothers continually analyze how oars propel boats; this process leads to questions, testing and design changes for the sake of improved efficiency.
35 years of designing innovative products for rowing:
- 1977: Concept2 brought carbon oars to the rowing community, leading the movement away from the wooden oars of the day.
- 1992: Concept2's asymmetric Big Blade shocked the rowing world into changing the way it looked at blade design.
- 2004: Concept2 fine-tuned the hydrodynamics of the Big Blade, which resulted in the development of the Smoothie and Fat Blades.
- Today: Concept2 continues influencing blade shape as the Dreissigacker brothers build on their commitment to design and build the best racing oars in the world.
We believe it is our responsibility to:
- Design and produce the best oars and sculls in the world.
- Sell them factory direct at a reasonable price
- Offer timely support for our customers from the factory and in the field
Whether you are a novice rower or an elite athlete, when you buy Concept2 oars, you invest in this tradition of performance, passion, innovation and support.
