2016 Dagger Axiom 9.0 Review – By Atom Crawford

The Dagger Axiom Kayak is a do-it-all river runner designed to make everything from Class I to V as fun as possible. With a planing hull, crisp edges and a low volume stern, the Axiom snaps in and out of eddies with ease, ferries, surfs, squirts and splats with the best of them. For beginners, the Axiom teaches good technique due to the low volume and sharp edges, but the low volume stern makes it very easy to roll. For advanced boaters, the Axiom makes it easy to utilize every rock, wave, eddy, and hole as a play feature. The Axiom is a great all around river runner that excels at a variety of aspects of whitewater kayaking. SKU# 13001
