Dagger is bringing back its most popular kayak, the RPM, in limited production started on April 15, 2013. Recently heralded by Rapid Magazine as the “most revolutionary whitewater boat of all time,” the RPM remains the best-selling whitewater boat ever manufactured, says the compny.
Whatever the letters stand for – Radical Play Machine, Revolutions Per Minute, you name it – the RPM made its mark on the paddling community in April 1996 when it was first released. This boat redefined the art of playboating and offered thousands of paddlers their first whitewater kayaking experience. A maneuverable, fast, versatile river runner, the RPM’s displacement hull is easy to roll and excellent for carving, front surfing, and stern squirts, making it ideal for advanced and beginner paddlers alike, says Dagger.
For a limited time, Dagger is giving retailers and consumers the opportunity to get their hands on this old-school favorite with modern updates and safety features including Dagger’s new Contour Ergo Outfitting. The Contour Ergo system offers an ergonomic thermo molded seat, a bulkhead footbrace system, adjustable hip pads and thigh braces, and unique colors combinations.
“We have heard the requests, and now we want to deliver.” said Jessica Wessinger, marketing communications manager for Confluence Watersports, parent company of Dagger. “This boat is a shining example of the foundation on which we built the Dagger brand, and we are proud to reintroduce one of the best kayak designs of all time into the retail market.”
