Dialed-in iconic Dagger performance for rivers or creeks. New Contour Ergo Engage Thigh Brace System now included with 2024 models

The Dagger Code whitewater kayak is a fusion of the highly popular Mamba model and the speedster, Phantom, making it a great choice for paddlers of all skill levels. Its modern semi-planing hull delivers high performance while keeping the board stable. The high-rockered design provides immediate feedback that locks you in for making those perfect lines. The Code is also available in Small, and Medium sizes with Dagger's best-in-class Contour Ergo Outfitting, catering to everyone from beginner to advanced kayakers. With its versatility and superior design, the Code is the epitome of the Dagger whitewater line. Updated models now include our all-new Contour Ergo Engage Thigh Brace System, a modern update to Dagger’s best-in-class Contour Ergo outfitting system, providing a more immersive paddling experience. Use the “Less” aggressive inner thigh hook for a relaxed fit or install the included “More” aggressive inner thigh hook for precise control and superior connectivity. Rotate the angle of your inner thigh hook and adjust the supportive outer hook to create individual fit and ultimate engagement with your Dagger kayak.

New Contour Ergo Engage Thigh Brace System

Dagger is thrilled to announce the launch of our all-new Contour Ergo Engage Thigh Brace System. Contour Ergo Engage is a modern update to Dagger’s best-in-class Contour Ergo outfitting system. Durable injection molded thigh braces create a more secure interface for performance paddling. All thigh brace adjustments are now managed through a single 4mm hex tool, which is included with the purchase of your Dagger kayak. The Engage thigh brace is wrapped in ultra comfortable padding in all the right places and includes shims for a superior and customized experience. Engage in a more immersive paddle experience with the new Dagger Contour Engage Thigh Braces!

Roto-molded seating with leg lifter

The roto-molded seat system is not only incredibly safe, but also supremely comfortable. It comes equipped with intuitive controls for easy fore and aft adjustment and a groundbreaking ratcheting leg lifter that offers 3" of elevation. This feature allows paddlers to adopt an optimal position within the kayak, promoting efficient control and energy transfer. The adjustable hip pads can also be quickly released and tailored to each user's needs for maximum comfort and control. Meanwhile, the highly adjustable backband offers crucial support and comfort, serving as a pivotal point of contact for control. All of these features are wrapped in plush cockpit padding, and we even provide a seat booster for ultimate customization.

Contour Ergo Outfitting system

Dagger takes pride in innovative designs, particularly when they contribute to safer and more reliable kayaking experiences. The 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. Great care is taken to integrate advanced comfort and technical features seamlessly, and you'll appreciate the difference the moment you try Dagger's Contour Ergo Outfitting.

Safety step-out wall

Safety is our top priority, which is why the innovative safety step-out wall is included. This feature provides leverage for quick cockpit exits in emergency situations, while also adding structural support to the kayak. It is cleverly designed to double as an internal handle for easier portaging.
