Unsponsored has had a closer look at the Dagger Nomad 2016. When we first shared the news that a new Nomad was on its way hits on the site went crazy for days showing that this really is something that the whitewater kayaking community have welcomed.
Snowy Robertson has worked tirelessly through several iterations of prototype which has resulted in the kayaks shown in the post.
UPDATE: First paddle impressions of the Nomad can be found here.
Team Unsponsored is at this year’s Paddle Expo and I personally wanted to catch up with the team behind Spade Kayaks to find out what is going to be new as we moved forward into 2016.
Over the last few weeks a few images of a “new” Ace of Spades have emerged and after a really good chat with the guys from Spade Kayaks I have the full detail.
Firstly the Ace of Spades for 2016 has the same hull shape as the kayak we reviewed on Unsponsored earlier this year.
It’s been some time since Palm Equipment had a rand based skirt in the range and it’s something that Palm followers have been crying out for. Not wanting to disappoint they have developed the new Palm Equipment Orbit Spray Skirt.
