Contour Ergo Outfitting system
At Dagger, we take pride in our innovative designs, particularly when they contribute to safer and more reliable kayaking experiences. Our world-class Contour Ergo Outfitting system achieves just that by offering unparalleled adjustability, patented technology, and cutting-edge safety innovations for whitewater kayaking. Since a kayak and paddle function as a single unit, the internal design is as crucial to performance as the hull design. We take great care to integrate advanced comfort and technical features seamlessly, and you'll appreciate the difference the moment you try Dagger's Contour Ergo Outfitting.
Roto-molded seating with leg lifter
The safest and most comfortable seat system we have designed. Our bomb-proof roto-molded seats have intuitive fore and aft adjustment controls and include an industry-first ratcheting leg lifter. This leg lifter allows 3” of elevation that allows the paddler to cinch into the kayak for efficient control and energy transfer from the paddler to the kayak. Quick-release, adjustable hip pads provide additional comfort and control. The highly adjustable backband offers support, comfort, and another pivotal point of contact for control. All this is wrapped in cushy cockpit padding…we have even included a seat booster for ultimate customization.
Precision adjustable thigh braces
Fine-tune your fit with Dagger's precision adjustable thigh braces. Shaped to allow easy entry and exit, our thigh braces offer 2" of fore and aft adjustment. With the ergonomic shape and soft padding, the thigh braces are next-level comfort. Simple. Secure. Dialed-in.
Safety step-out wall
At Dagger, safety is our top priority, which is why we've included our innovative safety step-out wall. This feature provides leverage for quick cockpit exits in emergency situations, while also adding structural support to the kayak. We've even cleverly designed it to double as an internal handle for easier portaging.
Foam foot brace system
Our stacked-foam footrest allows you to customize your fit to the kayak and provides incredible comfort and better kayak control.
Safety is priority number one with Dagger, which is why we coined the phrase “Team Tested, Paddler Proven.” Our products go through rigorous testing by our professionals in various environments, so you know that you can trust our product.
Comfort and a customized fit are critical to the Dagger persona, and you will experience unique refinement the moment you sit in Dagger's Contour Ergo Outfitting.
Our kayak design is easy to slice through the water and features a bow volume that provides balance on its end. The stern volume is optimized for smooth end-to-end transitions, and the rocker is tuned for easy vertical play engagement and downriver speed. The wide, flat planning hull keeps you loose on the waves, and the carving rail gives you bite and drive while surfing. Best of all, we've rethought comfort and fit, so the days of cramped downriver kayaks are a thing of the past.
Our kayaks are made from High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) plastic for a longer-lasting, stiffer, and impact-resistant kayak.
