Easley, S.C.â€“ The editors of â€œNational Geographic ADVENTUREâ€ have awarded â€˜Best of Adventure Gear’ to the Dagger Axis 12.0. The new Axis 12.0 kayak was called out for its versatility and performance, among a host of outdoor products deemed â€œthe must-have gear picksâ€ for 2010.
â€œWe want to thank the editors for this fantastic honor,â€ said Sue Rechner, CEO of Dagger and Confluence Watersports. â€œWe are thrilled for the Axis to be recognized by â€˜National Geographic ADVENTURE.’ The magazine embodies exploration and discovery, and the Axis was designed to encourage them.â€
The adaptable Dagger Axis 12.0 is designed to move seamlessly from calm water to moving water, making it an ideal boat for a novice kayaker or an intermediate boater who seeks a one-boat quiver. The whitewater-inspired elements of the design, such as a significant rocker profile, make for a maneuverable kayak in whitewater and rocky, slow-moving waters. Plus, the Axis tracks well on flatwater with the drop-down skeg and carries good speed for its 12-foot length.
The esteemed, annual â€˜Best of Adventure’ issue is on sale now, with highlights online at: http://adventure.nationalgeographic.com/2009/12/best-of-adventure/gear-photo-gallery.
The Dagger Axis 12.0 is available now at your local specialty, kayak dealer and retails for $895.00. To check out the Axis online, visit: www.dagger.com.
