Dagger Stratos 12.5

The Stratos 12.5 is the smaller sister to the hugely popular longer 14.5 version. Packed with all the same features and hull shape, the 12.5 is lighter, shorter and much more manoeuvrable than the 14.5. Of course by sacrificing waterline length and volume, the top end cruising speed, carrying capacity and trackability are compromised.

Perfect for day touring, and paddlers who enjoy exploring smaller waterways and in-shore areas. The 12.5 is nimble and faster than 10-11ft touring kayaks, and copes extremely well with ocean swell and small surf. In keeping with the 14.5, the flared bow rocker cuts nicely through waves and the flattened hull area directly beneath the seat position offers a nice stable ride, especially when catching waves and swell from the stern.

Forgiving and easy to roll (relative the paddlers ability), the Stratos 12.5 has the unique ability that it can easily be paddled by beginners, but experts also love how it paddles and it’s very well thought out design and features.

With plenty of adjustment in the outfitting, the kayaks seat leg-lifter, footrest, thighbraces and backrest can be altered to provide the paddler with a comfortable, snug fit. The 12.5 also comes with drop-down skeg for windy days, 2x watertight hatches and contoured hip pads as standard.

Set to be well received into the UK market, the 12.5 is a lovely little day tourer. Available in two different sizes to suit differing paddler weights. For those wanting more speed and storage the Stratos14.5 could be worth a look.
