RPM is Back!

The most popular whitewater kayak ever created is back for a limited time as a part of our 30th anniversary.

Whatever you want the letters to stand for – Radical Play Machine or Revolutions Per Minute – The RPM remains one of the best-selling whitewater boats ever manufactured. With a flat stern for big squirts, solid stability in a forgiving and easy to roll displacement hull, and slicey ends for carving. It surfs, runs rivers, and plays the eddylines for intermediate to advanced paddlers alike.

For the first time ever, this legendary boat design is paired with the ultimate whitewater outfitting system. Contour Ergo Outfitting — safety, adjustability and comfort. No compromise.

The RPM – a true classic that needs no introduction.

After 12 years, The RPM MAX is back too! For bigger paddlers wanting the RPM performance with more room, we are releasing a mere 200 RPM MAXes for a limited time. Splat, squirt, and surf in comfort – The MAX also features Dagger’s Contour Ergo Outfitting.
