Dagger Nomad


For the last 12 years the Dagger Nomad has been the go to choice for big water whitewater lovers and waterfall afficianado's. It has been redesigned with a refined rocker profile, extra length, extra voume and a choice of 3 sizes- the 8.2(small), 8.6(medium) and 9.0 (Large). The Nomad 9.0 carries a whopping 96 plus gallons and is a true big guy boat with plenty of room for gear.


Being a classic design, Dagger have taken all of the key elements that made the original boat so good and improved on them, without losing any of the performance and predictability that made it so popular. . The Rocker profile has been tweaked by adding more rocker in the bow to keep the Nomad on the surface over holes and coming off drops. Lowering the stern rocker and flattening out through the tail helps push the boat out from drops and to carry speed away. The volume has also been increased the entire new Nomad range but without any significant increase in width.


The new Dagger Nomad includes Dagger’s contour ergo outfitting system to ensure maximum contact, control & comfort. Other features include s tank style roto-moulded seat for maximum strength, step-out moulded front pillar and as new features for the Nomad an anchored rear pillar and additional front safety handle.


A great all round whitewater and creeking kayaking for those looking for a very forgiving kayak or for those whitewater warriors running the big & steep stuff.

We offer a delivery service for the Dagger Nomad throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.

Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.

Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales.

The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
