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.
Pat Keller has kindly agreed to share his Dagger RPM Max upgrade on Unsponsored. Pat has taken the standard RPM Max shell and added one of Daggers new Contour Ergo outfitting systems.
The seat swap was pretty self explanatory (a few bolts and a bit of man handling to get it in), but it’ll be best to use the plates that come with the creek seat than just washers.
The Mamba from Dagger has been around since 2005 and has become a firm favourite with paddlers at all levels. Over the last couple of years Dagger’s designers and test paddlers have been working on making the Mamba even better, the result has been some major design changes that have brought the Mamba bang up to date. In many senses the 2013 Mamba is a completely new boat.
