    Any water, any time.

    The Dagger Katana 9.7 Kayak isn't a sword, but it does slice through the water with wicked abandon whether you're running Class III rapids or you're on a luxurious weekend paddle on your favorite low-volume river with your best friends. Unlike the Axis or the Roam (Dagger's other cross-over kayak options), the Katana is based off a whitewater boat that's been tweaked so paddlers will be able to enjoy themselves on more sedated outings as well.

    Dagger took polyethylene and rotomolded it into a minimal and balanced progressive rocker hull that tapers into beveled and flared sidewalls. Novice paddlers will appreciate the initial stability of a balanced boat, and experienced river rats will enjoy secondary stability from defined edges. When flatwater is in your sights, a drop-down skeg makes paddling pure joy by making it easy to set and track a straight line.

    In addition to shape, the other hint that the Katana kind of likes a rough-and-tumble ride is the Contour Ergo seating and creek seat. Adjustable leg lifters reduce pressure points on your upper thighs and rear end. Adjustable hip pads and seat give you a customized fit without you paying custom-boat prices. The bulkhead plate comes out for a safer footbrace and additional storage space up front. Between stern hatch and bulkhead in the bow, the Katana allows you to stow your gear in a balanced fashion.
