Product Description and Specs

The Dagger Mamba 8.6 has been designed with a "Team Tested, Paddler Proven" heritage that's trusted by the most renowned instructors and paddlers in the world, the new Mamba offers serious refinements that will make it the top River Runner in its class. The big boy of the series has even more volume and improved distribution over the 8.5. This is a large boat for large paddlers with all the forgiving characteristics of the original series. It offers increased speed, crisper control and added safety features, including a repositioned bow grab handle for easier access, an added handle near the cockpit, and an added molded-in stern foam wall holder to improve the structural integrity. The Mamba 8.6 River Runner is outfitted with the Contour Ergo Play seating system. Whether you're a seasoned paddler looking to hone your river skills, make the move beyond Class III, or you're a new adventure seeker looking for a predictable, stable, easy to roll power-house to discover the full range of real whitewater, the stylish new Mamba Series will inspire your ultimate adventure.

After 25 years away from kayaking whitewater as a river guide, this boat blew me away with the nimbleness in the water! It turns on a dime, and handles punching through holes, carving into and out of eddies... After my first run down our local Class 2/3 section, I'm completely confident in taking it to the more challenging Class 4 and 5 runs in the area, knowing it will handle it easily. I purchased the Seals Shocker Whitewater Sprayskirt in Black, Size 1.4, and it fits solidly on the Mamba.
