Dagger Stratos 14.5

Made in the UK Manufactured in the UK

The Stratos is stable and predictable in calm or stormy waters, this makes it suitable for fairly new paddlers, it is also highly responsive when needed so is suitable for the more adventurous thrill seekers too. Volume around the middle keeps you comfortable and riding high, whilst the finely tuned rocker profile and soft edges make the boat manoeuvrable and forgiving in rough conditions. It is an ideal choice for anyone wanting a versatile multi-purpose kayak.

Fast and efficient on flat water, playful enough to ride currents and waves, lively enough to get the adrenaline pumping, the Stratos changes the rules for ocean play. It has the speed to get you to where the fun is, be that in tidal races, off-shore rock gardens or journeying along the coastline. The Stratos surfs well and is rapidly gaining a reputation as the rock-hopping boat of choice for adventurous thrill-seeking paddlers, it even does well on fairly gnarly white water river runs. It is moulded and made here in the UK and comes with great features such as drop-down skeg, paddle park, and bow and stern bulkheads with storage hatches.

Great hull design is complimented by the excellent cockpit outfitting which can be adjusted to ensure maximum conectivity and make sure that every move you make is transferred directly to the boat. The Stratos comes with Dagger's Contour Lite outfitting which provides plenty of comfort and multi-adjust options such as variable hip pad shims and 8 fitting points for fine tuning the thigh pads to ensure you get the level of comfort and control needed for an outstanding paddling experience. The Stratos comes in two sizes to suite different body types. The 14.5S (Small) fits those with a lighter more compact frame and the 14.5L has a little more width and a higher profile in front of teh cockpit to give more room for longer legs. The cockpit outfitting is also customisable making this kayak well suited for a wide range of paddlers.

We offer a delivery service for the Dagger Stratos 14.5 throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.


Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; 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 location that 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.
