2016 Dagger Nomad 8.2, 8.6 & 9.0


Over 12 years on from the launch of the first Dagger Nomad, 2016 sees the arrival of the new redesigned Nomad and with it the introduction of true small, medium and large sizing. Previously the Nomad has been available 2 sizes the new Nomad line up will be now available in a Small 8.2, Medium 8.6 and the Large 9.0 size. The Nomad 9.0 carries a whopping 96 plus gallons and is a true big guy boat with plenty of room for gear.


The new 2016 Dagger Nomad line up continues to deliver on the performance & predictability for which the Nomad has always been renowned. Dagger have done an amazing job of treading the fine in not breaking anything that didn’t need fixing but at the same time refining what they could to create true perfection. The Rocker profile has been tweaked by adding more rocker in the bow to keep the Nomad on the surface over holes and coming off drops. Lowering the stern rocker and flattening out through the tail helps push the boat out from drops and to carry speed away. The volume has also been increased the entire new Nomad range but without any significant increase in width.


The new Dagger Nomad includes Dagger’s contour ergo outfitting system to ensure maximum contact, control & comfort. Other features include s tank style roto-moulded seat for maximum strength, step-out moulded front pillar and as new features for the 2016 Nomad an anchored rear pillar and additional front safety handle.


A great all round whitewater and creeking kayaking for those looking for a very forgiving kayak or for those whitewater warriors running the big & steep stuff.
