A crossover kayak that truly excels in any water, the Katana was designed to inspire confidence in the paddler with a balanced rocker profile for speed on the flat and maneuverability in whitewater. The hull is designed for initial stability while the beveled and flared side-walls create secondary stability. The rounded stern deck shape, taken from the Mamba design, sheds water easily, making it forgiving in moving water. The Katana also offers a more spacious cockpit than traditional whitewater designs for a less confining feeling. Reinforced hatches and a removeable bow bulkhead offer unparalleled gear storage, while the drop skeg add speed and stability.
The 9.7 is perfect for smaller paddlers, or paddlers who do not need the added storage capacity of the larger model.
Please Note: Seat fabric on Dagger kayaks will be updated during the 2020 model year. The functionality of the seat remains unchanged, but the seat may look different than the photo on this page. Learn More.
