The Dagger Jitsu 6. 0 Kayak fits your NBA-sized frame so the big and tall paddlers get the same head-over-heels fun as the pint-sized paddlers. A combination of rocker and low-profile engineering endows your paddling with unparalleled agility and stability and race-car worthy speeds--turn cartwheels, fly off the wave, and head towards that sick hole without tossing your cookies. And then do it all over again. A smooth, progressive rocker gives the boat maximum maneuvering in holes, off waves, and down falls. The low-profile stern puts the pedal to the metal for easy acceleration into waves, off launches, and across the flats, hewing a tight line towards the next sweet spot of churning rapids. The majority of the Jitsu's volume is centralized around the cockpit. At the bow, tapered sides make hole moves pop. The combination of side and volume pushed into and behind the seat lets you scribe large loops with enough juice to fly off the wave (and several feet from your launch pad). The Contour outfitting system maximizes paddler comfort and optimizes positioning for on-water paddling power. The seat rail is welded to the boat itself, making it simple to transfer your paddling power to the boat's movements on the water. Proper positioning in the cockpit is a highly personal experience. Nearly everything adjusts on the Jitsu, so creating a custom fit is easy. Hip braces adjust for a tight or loose fit, depending on conditions you'll encounter. The ratcheted back gives you the ability to sit comfortably for hours on end, and be able to walk upright when you reach dry land. The footrests are molded to the boat for stability during collisions, but are adjustable for a little extra power to your paddling.

Dagger Kayaks Jitsu 6.0 Kayak - Dagger brings decades of experience and team-tested, paddler-proven heritage to freestyle kayaking in the all new Jitsu Series True to form, this series has been tested and approved by some of the worldâ??s most skilled paddlers, including Andrew Holcombe, Chris Gragtmans, Rush Sturges, Ben Marr and world freestyle champion James Bebbington. With a fast, loose hull and defined edges, this dynamic performance freestyle kayak excels in surfing and aerial moves on play waves and holes. The Jitsuâ??s unique rocker profile, hull to rail relationship through the stern, carefully distributed centralized volume, and slicey tips make three dimensional combination moves in advancing hole play easier while creating a seamless blend of speed, looseness, and release on waves. The double-step carving rail above the release edge also helps the boat to grip and drive on wave faces for very controlled carving. The Jitsu maintains snappy edge-to-edge transition yet it is arguably the loosest hull on the market today. Dagger also added a remarkable seat to the Jitsu. The newly designed seat system with leg lifter allows more efficient transfer of energy from the paddler to the kayak, ultimately making the boat more responsive. Additional adjustments that are unique to this play outfitting include a refined quick-reference indexing system that allows on-the-fly adjustment and gives the paddler up to 4" of fore and aft adjustment. A solid performance-minded design, the Jitsu is suitable for all personalities and skill sets, appealing to competitors, park-and-play enthusiasts and those who just enjoy paddling the biggest waves and sickest holes around. Out-performing competitor freestyle kayaks downriver, the Jitsu is a solid all-around choice for those who want to enjoy big waves, holes on river, and freestyle competition. Dagger freestyle is back with a vengeance!
