Dagger Wins Paddlesport Industry Award

Greenville, SC (August 30, 2018) – Dagger, is proud to accept the Paddlesport Industry award for the best new Touring and Recreational boat with their all-new Dagger Stratos 12.5.\

“We are stoked our partners and customers share the same passion for uncompromised performance and safety,” Said Scott Byers, designer for Dagger. “From our skilled Makers to our Team of celebrated athletes, Dagger remains committed to our paddling community. The Stratos 12.5 highlights this commitment.”

Beginners will love the stability and forgiveness, while intermediate and expert paddlers will find that the Stratos’ sporty hull is fast and maneuverable on any adventure. An adjustable drop-skeg aids tracking, and with two hatches, bulkheads, and deck bungees, gear storage has never been easier. Perfect for multi-day touring adventures, and just as capable for a day trip to your favorite rock garden or surf spot, the Stratos is a do-it-all kayak that stays with you on every step of your journey.
