Contour Ergo Outfitting system: At Dagger, we take pride in our innovative designs, particularly when they contribute to safer and more reliable kayaking experiences. Our world-class Contour Ergo Outfitting system achieves just that by offering unparalleled adjustability, patented technology, and cutting-edge safety innovations for whitewater kayaking. Since a kayak and paddle function as a single unit, the internal design is as crucial to performance as the hull design. We take great care to integrate advanced comfort and technical features seamlessly, and you'll appreciate the difference the moment you try Dagger's Contour Ergo Outfitting.
Roto-molded seating with leg lifter: The safest and most comfortable seat system we have designed. Our bomb-proof roto-molded seats have intuitive fore and aft adjustment controls and include an industry-first ratcheting leg lifter. This leg lifter allows 3” of elevation that allows the paddler to cinch into the kayak for efficient control and energy transfer from the paddler to the kayak. Quick-release, adjustable hip pads provide additional comfort and control. The highly adjustable backband offers support, comfort, and another pivotal point of contact for control. All this is wrapped in cushy cockpit padding…we have even included a seat booster for ultimate customization.
Precision adjustable thigh braces: Fine-tune your fit with Dagger's precision adjustable thigh braces. Shaped to allow easy entry and exit, our thigh braces offer 2" of fore and aft adjustment. With the ergonomic shape and soft padding, the thigh braces are next-level comfort. Simple. Secure.
