Versatile. Maneuverable. Comfortable.
Your tastes politely pass as eclectic, and your family has other, more colorful ways of describing your wildly diverse interests. The Dagger Axis 10.5 adapts to your water-based mercurial disposition, going from placid lakes to swift-moving rivers without hesitation. Beginners will feel at home in this stable lady, and hard-charging intermediate paddlers will be able to push their boating boundaries. Its small size makes it easy to maneuver in tight passages.
Dagger took the best of whitewater boats and did a bit of genetic engineering by adding the preferred traits from recreational boats to create the versatile Axis 10.5. The TruTrak adjustable skeg turns this boat into a floating bloodhound, staying true to course like a pro. When it's time make some waves or push your paddling limits on a bit of whitewater, lift the skeg. A slight keel blurs into a slightly rounded bottom for steering ease when you're slipping down a slight drop along the river. The high volume mimics the water-shedding of both a duck and a true whitewater boat and helps keep your tip pointed up when you're punching through waves or riding micro-falls.
Comfort Fit Recreational Seating adjusts for a custom fit every time. The padded foam seat adjusts to accommodate your torso, be it more like a gymnast or more akin to a pro-cager. Adjustable hip pads and leg lifters give you the chance to make this boat yours and yours alone. If you're hitting the lakes on Saturday and running rivers on Sunday, the cockpit can be retro-fitted with thigh braces. A mesh pocket attaches to the bow with bungees, and the stern hatch offers dry storage, though it's best to leave water-sensitive electronics at home or in the car. Soft-touch handles won't leave your palms raw when you're toting this boat to or from the put-in.

Comfortable & fast if you want it to be
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I love this kayak. The seat is comfortable, and the the storage space is generous. It's stable enough for my me and my 12 year old, but we can get it going fast . We don't have a skirt for it yet, but are excited to get it on a little white water when we are more experienced.
