If you're the kind of paddler that appreciates a smooth and fast sedan-like ride but still wants to point your bow down some foamy froth and small drops, then the Dagger Axis 12. 0 Kayak is your boat. The longer, faster, roomier option in Dagger's Axis line, this boat will carry enough gear for a multi-day trip, glide across flat water, and shoot small rapids with ease. When you're paddling through open water, drop the skeg and track like a bloodhound, and when it's time to make a splash, raise it and send it down your local river. The high volume bow sheds water like a whitewater boat and cuts through waves like a sea kayak. The stern is designed to provide plenty of stability to give beginner paddlers the stability they need to paddle confidently. The extra storage space of the Axis 12. 0 allows for all the room you need to for an extended stay on the water, while the dual density hatch at the stern keeps your gear dry in the event of a roll. Comfort Fit Recreational Seating adjusts for a custom fit every time. The padded foam seat adjusts to fit your frame. When it's time to explore more challenging routes and you need a more aggressive stance, the Axis is ready for thigh braces, no drilling required. Attach the mesh pocket to the bow deck so you have easy access to rain gear, beverages, or a quick snack.


This sporty kayak boasts a roomy cockpit for larger paddlers, a drop-down skeg for straight tracking and ample storage for your gear. It transitions seamlessly from lakes and ponds to coastal inlets.


Dagger's versatile Axis 12.0 is ideal for the eclectic paddler who appreciates relaxing day trips on the lake, but might also enjoy the challenge of a running river. For free shipping to over 50 of our stores, or to ask any questions, call Customer Service at 888-463-6367.


Dagger Axis 12.0 Kayak with TruTrak Skeg - The Axis 12.0 kayak from Dagger transitions seamlessly from flat water to moving water providing unprecedented versatility in a single kayak. Sporty and athletic, the Axis is ideal for the seasoned paddler who likes to do it all or the beginner paddler with a taste for adventure. Whitewater-inspired design features lend high performance to your trips down quick moving rivers, inlets and inter-coastal waterways. In calmer waters, the TruTrak drop skeg's hydrofoil shape cuts efficiently through the water, keeping the Axis moving straight and tracking true. An added hull-stiffening beam creates structural integrity and keeps you in control. The sealed stern hatch makes carrying gear for multi-day trips easy and the mesh deck pocket holds water bottles or other loose gear securely. Dagger's Comfort Fit System system offers a height-adjustable backrest and leg lifter for versatility, along with a cockpit thigh pad for additional comfort. The Dagger Axis 12.0 Kayak is ready to take you on your next weekend paddling excursion!
