The ideal creek boat for learning the ropes or pushing it on first descents.
The Dagger Mamba Creeker 8.6 Kayak goes from rolling in the high school pool to charging endless drops and roiling eddies along the Middle Fork of the American River or the Zanskar River Gorge. This spry though stable boat swallows your pro-cager frame and keeps you atop the water. Built with the same profile and design elements as its fraternal twin, the Dagger Mamba 8.6, the Creeker only differs in the outfitting. The change in set-up throws in a bit more structural integrity if you're considering high-risk rapids, all while shaving weight.
Linear polyethylene is roto-molded to give you a planing hull with sharp edge transitions and a rockered, peak-deck bow. Learning won't leave lasting scars and hunting rapids will leave you with a huge grin on your face. Room in the rear lets you stow gear if your plans are river-bound for several days. Added volume in the cockpit puts your legs in front of you, making your assertive paddling efficient and effective. Charging hard across vicious chops towards roaring falls is sweet and easy with this Creeker.
Both the Creeker Mamba and the Mamba feature Contour Ergo Outfitting, including the reinforced bulkhead footbrace system. However, the Creeker seat and step-out pillar are what distinguishes the Creeker. Due to roto-molded tank style construction, the Creeker seat is stiffer and more durable than the seat found in the Mamba. A step-out pillar makes escaping tight situations easier and adds to the overall stability of the boat if below-water boulders try to crunch your bow.
