Dagger have launched the Roam, a cross performance sit-on-top kayak. The Roam delivers a package of great manoeuvrability, solid tracking and predictable stability, combined with thoughtfully-designed, ergonomic outfitting and storage space. “Dagger recognizes that today’s outdoor enthusiasts need a boat that broadens the on-the-water possibilities without compromising performance,” says Jessica Prescott, Dagger’s marketing manager. “The Roam not only satisfies this demand, but offers a boat with rounded utility for multi-sport athletes.”
The Roam features the new Contour Surround seat system, designed to be comfortable, manoeuvrable and versatile. The Contour Surround seat system cradles the body with fore and aft seat back adjustment, complemented by side bolsters that are comfort-inspired from white water hip pads. The outfitting features ergonomic thigh straps, which, when combined with the boat’s leg lifter, allow more connection with the kayak for quick responsiveness. Storage options include two deck hatches, multiple lashing points and a mesh tank well storage bag with a zippered sealed enclosure. The thigh strap can also be attached to the mesh bag, converting it to a courier-style daypack for hiking.
A confidence-inspiring hull design is powered by a mould similar to the popular Axis crossover boat. The boat’s spring-loaded adjustable skeg allows for steady tracking in flat water, and a water-shedding trim boosts buoyancy in whitewater. http://www.daggereurope.com http://www.dagger.com
