From the Lochsa to the Middle Fork of the Salmon, the newly updated and redesigned Dagger Mamba 8. 1 Kayak is ready to hit the throttle and charge whatever white water you point its nose down. The updated Mamba 8. 1 is all about more--more speed, safety features, control, volume, and improved volume distribution. The Mamba 8. 1 boasts a design that caters to experienced paddlers and inspires confidence in less-experienced paddlers, making it a highly versatile and adaptive staple in your arsenal. Added volume in the bow and stern brings additional stability, while an all-new Contour Ergo Playseat outfitting system allows for easy adjustability, all-day paddling comfort, and improved safety. The repositioned bow handle, as well as the cockpit handle, provides easier access. Not to mention, the molded-in stern foam wall offers better structural integrity for longevity and durability. With crisper boat reaction and a faster shape than last year's Mamba, this updated boat makes entry-level paddlers feel right at home and gives experienced boaters the tools to push themselves.
