Dagger Nova

Both the Nova and SuperNova offer a performance edge with an unforgettable play experience. The designs combine features of the full slice models of the late 90s/early 2000s with Dagger's more recent design innovations.

The Nova's lower volume delivers added control and precision for the lighter paddler, while the SuperNova's larger volume provides the same characteristics for the larger paddler. Both models come with the excellent ContourErgo outfitting.

If you are looking for a high performance kayak which is ideal for slicing, surfing and spinning your way down river the Nova or SuperNova could be the right choice for you - check out the videos on our videos tab to see how it performs.
