Completely redesigned for 2012 with a “Team Tested, Paddler Proven” heritage that's trusted by the most renowned instructors and paddlers in the world, the Mamba kayak offers serious refinements that will make it the top planing hull creeker on the market. The Mamba 8.1 is larger than the former 8.0, offering more volume with improved volume distribution, increased speed, crisper control and added safety features, including a repositioned bow grab handle for easier access, an added handle near the cockpit, and an added molded-in stern foam wall holder to improve the structural integrity.
Whether it's seasoned paddlers looking to hone their river skills, make the move beyond Class III, or new adventure seekers looking for a predictable, stable, easy to roll power-house to discover the full range of real whitewater, the stylish new Mamba Series will inspire their ultimate adventure.
Also available: Mamba 8.1
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.
