Dagger brings decades of experience and team-tested, paddler-proven heritage to freestyle kayaking in the Jitsu Series.
The Jitsu's unique rocker profile, hull to rail relationship through the stern, carefully distributed centralized volume, and slicey tips make three dimensional combination moves in advancing hole play easier while creating a seamless blend of speed, looseness, and release on waves. The double-step carving rail above the release edge also helps the boat to grip and drive on wave faces for very controlled carving. The Jitsu maintains snappy edge-to-edge transition yet it is arguably the loosest hull on the kayak market today.
Out-performing competitor freestyle kayaks downriver, the Jitsu is a solid all-around choice for those who want to enjoy big waves, holes on river, and freestyle competition too.
The 5.9 is the mid-sized Jitsu, perfectly suited for a wide range of paddlers looking for excellent release off of waves, three-dimensional hole moves, and a comfortable fit.
Please note: the fabric on the seat of Dagger kayaks will be updated during the 2020 model year. The seat has all the Contour Ergo features you are used to but may look different than the photo on this page. Learn More.
