Dagger Green Boat 11.5 Kayak Dagger Green Boat 11.5 Kayak
What started as a unique design for a particular race has become one of the most versatile kayaks ever dreamt up--the Dagger Green Boat 11. 5 Kayak is a longboat that defies categorization. Fast enough to win the most competitive whitewater races in the world and enough performance to navigate any waterway, the Green Boat has truly limitless potential. With stiff edges that offer the performance of a slalom kayak, and a narrow hull that carries speed while still giving stability and consistency, the Green Boat can run the steepest creeks, the most rowdiest rivers, and anything in between. Also regarded as a superior multi-day kayak, the only thing that can hold you back is your imagination.

Dagger Jitsu 5.9 Kayak Dagger Jitsu 5.9 Kayak
Being caught in the middle of an argument can be awkward and painful, but being in the mid-sized Dagger Jitsu 5. 9 Kayak is the exact opposite: relaxed and borderline hedonistic. Driving into waves and popping out of pockets, or stringing together a series of loops that would make a rodeo champion jealous, this aquatically agile boat gives you dynamic control in every dimension. Dagger designer Mark "Snowy" Robertson knew 'yaks needed the marriage of old-school speed and stability with newfangled flippability. The smooth, progressive rocker and clean entry off the tail give you a clean break-away while helping you accelerate into a wave. The low stern profile gives you sufficient speed to track a tight line. Once you've reached your terrifically turbulent destination, you'll be able to appreciate proportioned volume that is localized around the cockpit. Tapered sides push volume toward the center, which is good news for hole moves, a boatload of volume in the center supports modern-day combo moves, and an abundance of volume behind the seat gives you pop out of the pocket. It's equipped with the Contour Ergo outfitting system, so paddler comfort is maximized and paddler power is exploited. The seat rail is welded to the boat itself, making it easy to take your paddle power and transfer it to the Jitsu 5. 9 kayak's on-water performance. Nearly everything adjusts on this boat, so you can customize the padding for optimal power delivery where you need it. For adrenaline-addicted paddlers, the Jitsu offers speed to launch your cartwheeling fun into the air without tipping you ass-over-teakettle when you're balancing on the stern.

Dagger Jitsu 6.0 Kayak Dagger Jitsu 6.0 Kayak
The Dagger Jitsu 6. 0 Kayak fits your pro baller-sized frame so the big and tall paddlers get the same head-over-heels fun as the pint-sized paddlers. A combination of rocker and low-profile engineering endows your paddling with unparalleled stability and speeds in order to turn cartwheels, fly off the wave, and head toward that sick hole without tossing your cookies. A smooth, progressive rocker gives the boat maximum maneuvering in holes and down falls. The low-profile stern puts the pedal to the metal for easy acceleration into waves, off launches, and across the flats. The majority of the Jitsu's volume is centralized around the cockpit. At the bow, tapered sides make hole moves pop. The combination of side and volume pushed behind the seat lets you scribe large loops with enough juice to fly off the wave (and several feet from your launch pad). The Contour outfitting system maximizes paddler comfort and optimizes positioning for on-water paddling power. The seat rail is welded to the boat itself, making it simple to transfer your paddling power to the boat's movements on the water. Nearly everything adjusts on the Jitsu, so creating a custom fit is easy. Hip braces adjust for a tight or loose fit, depending on the conditions you'll encounter. The ratcheted back gives you the ability to sit comfortably for hours on end and be able to walk upright when you reach dry land. The footrests are molded to the boat for stability during collisions, but are adjustable for a little extra power for your paddling.

Dagger Katana 10.4 Kayak Dagger Katana 10.4 Kayak
Hit the river at peak runoff for a long weekend of crushing rapids, set out for a pre-dawn cruise across the lake to your favorite birding spot, or strap the Dagger Katana 10. 4 Kayak to the roof of your car, load your mountain bike on the rack, and get ready for a two-week multi-sport adventure. With durable rotomolded plastic making up the hull of this crossover beast, you never have to worry about whether or not your boat is going to survive that next river section. A molded seat with adjustable thigh braces, hip pads, foot braces, and a ratchet-adjustable back band ensures that not only can you paddle with stability, but you can stay in the saddle for a long day without worrying about your muscles aching the next morning. Whether in flat water or slow-moving rivers, you'll appreciate how easy it is to track a straight line with the Tru Trak adjustable skeg system. When you're facing big water and rocks ahead, just pull up the skeg to let your boat move freely to keep it from being damaged.

Dagger Katana 9.7 Kayak Dagger Katana 9.7 Kayak
The Dagger Katana 9. 7 Kayak isn't a samurai sword, but it does slice through the water with wicked abandon whether you're running Class III rapids or you're on a luxurious weekend paddle on your favorite low-volume river with your best friends. Unlike the Axis or the Roam (Dagger's other cross-over kayak options), the Katana is based off a whitewater boat that's been tweaked so paddlers will be able to enjoy themselves on more sedated outings as well. Dagger took polyethylene and rotomolded it into a minimal and balanced progressive rocker hull that tapers into beveled and flared sidewalls. Novice paddlers will appreciate the initial stability of a balanced boat, and experienced river rats will enjoy secondary stability from defined edges. When flatwater is in your sights, a drop-down skeg makes paddling pure joy by making it easy to set and track a straight line. In addition to shape, the other hint that the Katana kind of likes a rough-and-tumble ride is the Contour Ergo seating and creek seat. Adjustable leg lifters reduce pressure points on your upper thighs and rear end. Adjustable hip pads and seat give you a customized fit without you paying custom-boat prices. The bulkhead plate comes out for a safer footbrace and additional storage space up front. Between stern hatch and bulkhead in the bow, the Katana allows you to stow your gear in a balanced fashion.

Dagger Mamba 7.6 Kayak Dagger Mamba 7.6 Kayak
Until recently, you bemoaned your recent relocation to the mid-Atlantic area as it lacks the extreme steep and deep to which you grew accustomed when you were living in the mountains. Then you learned about whitewater kayaking. Always being a bit economical, you sprung for the Dagger Mamba 7. 6 Kayak so the boat you learn in will also be the boat you use to dominate Class IV+ rapids. Froth is no longer for your lattes--roiling eddies and churning water through skinny chutes give you a bigger rush than a double shot of espresso. The planing hull is a flat, smooth surface so your first attempt to sit down doesn't result with you sitting in the drink. Once you're seated and on the water, the kayak's flat bottom and sharp edge transition means you'll have to put a little muscle into making the Mamba get a little edgy. As your paddling prowess increases, the smooth transition to the tail rocker gives you the ability to set an edge and take a tight line to hit the whites dead-on. Added volume in the stern floats you higher and more evenly from bow to stern. The rockered bow helps the boat rise up and over objects while being responsive to your every stroke. The peak deck sheds water so the bow rocker isn't a total waste, and the boat stays on the water surface. Contour Ergo Outfitting gives you a custom fit without the custom-boat price tag. With crisp boat reaction and a lightening-fast shape, the Mamba makes entry-level paddlers feel right at home and gives experienced boaters the tools to push themselves.

Dagger Mamba 8.1 Kayak Dagger Mamba 8.1 Kayak
From the Lochsa to the Middle Fork of the Salmon, the newly updated and redesigned Dagger Mamba 8. 1 Kayak is ready to hit the throttle and charge whatever white water you point its nose down. The updated Mamba 8. 1 is all about more--more speed, safety features, control, volume, and improved volume distribution.

Added volume in the bow and stern brings additional stability, while an all-new Contour Ergo Playseat outfitting system allows for easy adjustability, all-day paddling comfort, and improved safety. The repositioned bow handle, as well as the cockpit handle, provides easier access. Not to mention, the molded-in stern foam wall offers better structural integrity for longevity and durability.

Dagger Mamba Creeker 7.6 Kayak Dagger Mamba Creeker 7.6 Kayak
The Dagger Mamba Creeker 7. 6 Kayak is the water-bound version of a high-performance luxury car. You can paddle this boat like a grandma in a canoe, or you can cross currents and carve through eddy lines like a hot knife through butter. Dagger took the versatile Mamba and outfitted it with the Creeker seat to give you a forgiving boat that charges hard through rapids, boofs with the best of 'em, and won't get trapped by grabby eddy lines. The Creeker seat differs from the seat in the plain ol' Mamba in a few areas. Rotomolded, the Creeker seat is stiffer, making escapes easier. The step-out wall is stiffer too, so shoulder schlepping is simple, and stepping onto dry land doesn't leave you floundering like a fish out of water. An added storage tray does more than hold stuff; it enhances the hull structure, giving the boat a whiff more stability and rigidity. Otherwise, this boat is everything you've come to love from the Mamba. The planing hull makes learning a breeze and ripping Class V whites downright gleeful. The bountiful bow volume and peak deck punch holes and deflect small chop so the boat stays up, bobbing the water's surface. Junk in the trunk takes a slightly different shape when you're stowing gear in the stern but the concept remains the same. In addition to storage space, stern volume forgives most of your mistakes and helps the Mamba ride high to avoid boils. Stable yet sassy, the Mamba won't get flippant with beginners, while still giving expert paddlers all the play they can handle.

Dagger Mamba Creeker 8.1 Kayak Dagger Mamba Creeker 8.1 Kayak
Redesigned with more volume in the bow, progressive bow rocker, and Dagger's super-comfortable Contour Ergo Outfitting, the Mamba Creeker 8. 1 Kayak is the ideal kayak for the medium-sized paddler looking for a quick, yet maneuverable creek boat. With a design that puts an emphasis on down-river paddling, the Mamba Creeker isn't the most playful boat on the market, but it's still a surprisingly maneuverable kayak thanks to the aggressive, up-swept bow and gently rockered stern, which make the boat capable of side spins and quick turns. The planing full sits between two long carving edges that eventually trail off into the rounded bow and stern to make the Mamba capable of carving the occasional green wave and out of holes, but still forgiving enough to give the boat a predictable feel that's great for beginners.Sitting between the Mamba Creeker 7. 6 and 8. 6, the 8. 1 is well-equipped to handle paddlers between 150 to 220 lbs. The tank-style, roto-molded seating adds durability to the hull, while the Contour Ergo outfitting consists of a padded seat with a ratchet-adjustable backband, adjustable thigh braces, and included adjustable hip pads. The kayak also comes with Dagger's Contour adjustable bulkhead for added safety and protection during big drops. While the Mamba Creeker 8. 1 is a solid choice for the expert paddler looking for a fun and quick creek boat, the Mamba is also great for the beginner paddler looking for an easy-to-roll boat and stable feel that will ease them into class III rapids, thanks to the Mamba's flat and stable planing hull. Dagger also increased the overall safety of the kayak by adding five grab handles, which can be used to assist swimmers in a whitewater rescue scenario.

Dagger Mamba Creeker 8.6 Kayak Dagger Mamba Creeker 8.6 Kayak
The Dagger Mamba Creeker 8. 6 Kayak will take you from rolling in the high school pool to charging through endless drops on some of the biggest class V rapids. This larger-sized kayak is designed with bigger paddlers in mind, but maintains all the performance of its more moderately-sized cousins. Built with the same profile and design elements as its fraternal twin, the Dagger Mamba 8. 6, the Creeker only differs in the outfitting. The change in set-up throws in a bit more structural integrity if you're considering high-risk rapids, all while saving weight.Linear polyethylene is roto-molded to give you a planing hull with sharp edge transitions and a rockered, peak-deck bow. Learning won't leave lasting scars and hunting rapids will leave you with a huge grin on your face. Room in the rear lets you stow gear if you're planning on being river-bound for several days. Added volume in the cockpit puts your legs in front of you, making your assertive paddling efficient and effective. Charging hard across vicious chops towards roaring falls is sweet and easy with this Creeker.Both the Creeker Mamba and the Mamba feature Contour Ergo Outfitting, including the reinforced bulkhead footbrace system. However, the Creeker's seat and step-out pillar are what distinguish it. Due to roto-molded, tank-style construction, the Creeker seat is stiffer and more durable than the seat found in the Mamba. A step-out pillar makes escaping tight situations easier and adds to the overall stability of the boat if below-water boulders try to crunch your bow.

What do you get when you take something amazing and make it even more spectacular' A unicorn--or the Dagger Nomad 8. 6 Kayak, if you're talking about creek boats. The original Nomad put down some serious first descents, so Dagger knew it had some serious work to do. That being said, the changes are so minimal that the newly redesigned Nomad offers the same forgiveness, predictability, and stability as the original. To start, the Nomad 8. 6's added rocker keeps the bow up and carries more speed, allowing you to point and shoot, thread the needle, and send it through the burliest whitewater without having to think twice. The increased volume promotes more flotation, and the reshaped deck aids in resurfacing. And as the middle child in the Nomad lineup, the 8. 6's 326-liter capacity will float all but the largest Janes and Johnnies while remaining nimble, sporty, and creek-savvy.
