If you're the kind of paddler that appreciates a smooth and fast sedan-like ride but still wants to put it in the paddle version of four-wheel drive down some foamy froth and small drops, then the Dagger Axis 12. 0 Kayak is your boat. The longer, faster, roomier option in Dagger's Axis line, this boat will carry enough gear for a multi-day trip, glide across flat water, and shoot small rapids with ease. When you're paddling through open water, drop the skeg and track like a bloodhound, and when it's time to make a splash, raise it and send it down your local river. The high volume bow sheds water like a whitewater boat and cuts through waves like a sea kayak. The stern is designed to provide plenty of stability to give beginner paddlers the stability they need to paddle confidently. The extra storage space of the Axis 12. 0 allows for all the room you need to for an extended stay on the water, while the dual density hatch at the stern keeps your gear dry in the event of a roll. Comfort Fit Recreational Seating adjusts for a custom fit every time. The padded foam seat adjusts to fit your frame, and when it's time to explore more challenging routes and you need a more aggressive stance, the Axis is ready for thigh braces. Attach the mesh pocket to the bow deck, and you'll have easy access to rain gear, beverages, or a quick snack at a moment's notice.
