Dagger Katana


The Katana is Dagger's new cross over kayak, aimed at the paddler who is drawn to the excitement of whitewater, but still wants to be able to paddle longer distance's on flat water; around harbours/ estuaries and in the sea. The Katana will take on rapids with ease yet still glide through calm water and has plenty of storage space in the back of the boat for any food, kit and clothes you may want to take.


The Katana is designed to be stable, and user friendly and features a rounded stern which sheds water easily, making it forgiving in moving water. Dagger have designed the Katana's hull to give a balanced rocker profile for the perfect combination of manouverabiility in whitewater and straight line speed when touring.


The Katana is available in two levels of outfitting, the Katana Action is suitable for low grade whitewater and touring, whilst the River Outfitting feaures Dagger's Contour Ergo Seat which offers unrivalled levels of comfort and control and is suitable for higher grade whitewater. Both Katana's also features a spacious cockpit, a sealed rear storage area with waterproof hatch cover, a drop down skeg to help with tracking and deck lines for storage of gear.


The Dagger Katana is also available in a club spec, perfect for clubs and centres - please call for more details on this.
