Axis 10.5

Unprecedented versatility. The Axis 10.5 is ideal for the eclectic paddler who appreciates relaxing day trips on the lake, but might also enjoy the challenge of a running river and is unmatched in its class. On lakes, reservoirs, intercoastal waterways, and ponds it provides excellent tracking from a height-adjustable drop skeg that keeps it moving straight. Defined chines add maneuverability, and the Axis accepts a sprayskirt and can be fitted with thigh braces for more challenging environments.

Experience what an "all water" kayak can do with the new Dagger Axis.

  • By far the best boat I have ever paddled. Everyone says cross over boats are good for a lot of things, great at nothing - this boat is just great! Be it lake or river this is my go to boat. I have 4 other boats a Pyranha , Liquid logic, Necky, and a second dagger (Zydeco) and none of them have been in the water since I bought my Axis. Love it!

  • This is my second kayak. I have a 14.5 touring kayak but like a lot of people, I also needed a multipurpose kayak for downstream runs with occasional rapids that would still track well enough for use on flat water. This boat is just that. The drop skeg is a great feature that helps this boat track and make paddling on flat water more efficient. Pull the skeg up and you get the maneuverability you would expect from a boat of this length. It might feel a bit tippy to less experienced paddlers but

  • I have had this kayak since August 2012 , and I have paddled in it every month, but January. I love seat because I have back problems, and I can easily paddle in it for six hours in comfort. The skeg is a real plus. The storage is very good. I paddle mostly class 1&2 rivers, and it turns through the bends very well.

  • After researching kayaks for three months I chose the Dagger Axis 10.5. The very next day I put it on the Green River in NC. Numerous class I and class II rapids, what a rush and it performed flawlessly.

  • I was a little skeptical on the 10.5 I really wanted the 12 but none were available. I was pleasantly surprised by this boat. I've tried a ten footer with the retractable skeg and didn't feel that it made a difference. This one actually works. Tracks straight when down, spins on a dime when up. I haven't had it in whitewater yet, but with my limited experience I'm sure it will work great in class I or II. exactly what it is intended for a crossover. love the seat, the mesh on the top of the

  • Wow-what a cool little boat! For practical reasons, I wanted a short kayak that would track reasonably well, and yet also let me take advantage of our local rivers. I had considered some less expensive models by other manufacturers, and then came across the Axis 10.5 at a local outdoor store. After thorough consideration of the Axis, and reading a couple of reviews, I bought my Axis without a test paddle. Within an hour of purchase, I was out on the bay and into an outbound tide, 15 m.p.h. w
