Dagger Kayaks Review

Gradient, Blackwater and Savannah Models


Dagger Kayaks was born in the late 80s when a group of paddling buddies got together to pool their knowledge of paddlesports in order to design the ultimate kayak. Since then they’re expanded the business and revolutionized kayak design.

Their product range now covers a huge number of whitewater, touring and recreational kayaks with manufacturing bases in the States, the UK and New Zealand.

Whitewater > Gradient and Crossfire

Dagger whitewater craft cover everyone from novices to competitive river runners. A legend in whitewater circles, Dagger’s now discontinued crossfire model revolutionized the whitewater kayak design industry. It is one of the most popular kayaks ever produced for big water with its high bow buoyancy, great stability, forgiving design and good storage.

Another of dagger Kayaks’ classic designs, the Gradient is designed for steep creek boating with a short length, high volume and fast acceleration for maximum fun in extreme conditions.

Choosing the right kayak for your needs can be difficult though so use the ‘Fit Guide’ on Dagger Kayaks’ website to help you narrow down the options. You can plug in your preferences, size and weight and let the website choose the best whitewater kayak for your paddling plans. Then head off to a stocker and try out the options.

Touring >> Savannah

Dagger’s range of touring kayaks is almost as vast as its whitewater one. One of its most popular designs is the Savannah, a really versatile craft with excellent storage in a full-size bow hatch and bulkhead. A great option for beginners, the Savannah is a forgiving, easy-to-paddle design with great stability yet responsive action.

Recreational >> Blackwater

Swamped by the possibilities? It’s difficult to know what type of paddling you’re going to do when you start out kayaking and you really want a good all-round kayak initially. Dagger have a huge range to choose from, but one of the most popular designs is the Blackwater, one of the most popular recreational kayaks on the market. Its wide beam and forgiving hull offer great stability, great manoeuvrability and comfort seating. Check out Dagger.com for more information.
