Dagger Stratos 12.5

The Dagger Stratos 12.5 is the smaller counterpart to the well-known Stratos 14.5, Daggers tried and tested larger touring kayak. Boasting many of the same features and sporting the same hull shape, the Stratos 12.5 is a much more nimble kayak than the 14.5, being lighter-weight and shorter in length. Although the 14.5 will take the edge for cruising speed and efficiency when tracking a straight line, the Stratos 12.5 still performs well in these areas.

The Dagger Stratos 12.5 is agile and super manoeuvrable, coping extremely well with small surf and lively ocean conditions. Much like the Stratos 14.5, the increased bow rocker helps the kayak to slice through waves, keeping you high and dry. The Stratos offers great stability due to the flattened hull shape beneath the paddler, a handy feature to boost your confidence when catching waves.

The Stratos 12.5 features Daggers Contour Outfitting system, which includes a leg lifter, thigh braces, hip pads, and a flexible backband, creating plenty of adjustments to find the most comfortable position for you. The Stratos 12.5 also comes with drop-down skeg for rougher conditions and two storage hatches for those longer trips on the water.

Set to be well received into the UK market, the Dagger Stratos 12.5 is a brilliant little day touring kayak, available in two different sizes. For paddlers looking to achieve a higher cruising speed and some extra storage, the Dagger Stratos 14.5 is worth checking out.
