Dagger Axiom 8.0, 8.5 & 9.0


Dagger Europe made in the UK Manufactured in the UK


The Axiom is a great all purpose white water & surf kayak which gives you fast down river speed along with the potential of playing and carving among the waves.


It’s down river predictability and freestyle abilities make this boat a popular one-choice kayak for newcomers and more experienced kayakers. Perfect for learning new skills and practicing old ones, it is very stable and has hard rails running the full length of the hull allowing easier edge control and delivering sharper turns. It will see you from learning to roll all the way through to Grade 3/4 river running. All true all round and the ideal choice for those looking for a one boat fits all option.


Available in 3 adult sizes and 2 different outfitting specifications.

The Axiom is also available in a kids (small adult size) - See Dagger Axiom 6.9.

We offer a delivery service for the Dagger Axiom 8.0, 8.5 & 9.0 to home and work addresses throughout England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland & Ireland.

We endeavour to supply all goods ordered within 2-5 working days. We use a 1-2 working day service for the majority of smaller packages & a 3-5 working day delivery service for large items such as Kayaks & Canoes.

Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience and we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.

Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used, therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote locations the delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales.

The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
