  • 2Hull Design innovations

    Perfecting the green Boat hull required the optimum rocker curve for maximum speed. this speed is wasted however, if you must fight to steer the kayak and stay upright. By careful reduction of rocker through the stern, its now more stable and manoeuvrable than the prototype with a greater top speed.

    there's a lot that goes into Dagger kayak designs, every one of which must live up to our heritage of innovation, refinement and quality. The truth is that most kayak companies make at least one great kayak. What sets Dagger apart is offering class leading kayaks across the board, mastering every type of water from the mountains to the sea.

    a truly great kayak gets people excited to paddle. it requires not only good design, but also an understanding of the journey from drawing board sketch to hull meeting the water. our integrated R&D process ensures that the final product meets both the standards of the design
