Dagger Celebrates 30th Anniversary

Greenville, SC (May 3, 2018) – On the heels of the much-anticipated Phantom kayak launch Dagger announces its plans to celebrate its 30th anniversary. In honor of the milestone, Dagger will be releasing a new limited-edition colorway, Red Dawn. Models available in Red Dawn will also showcase Dagger’s premium 30th Anniversary graphic. Along with the custom visuals featured on these models, consumers will also receive a Dagger Love Pack with each purchase. The Love Pack consists of commemorative branded swag for Dagger enthusiasts, including a water bottle, keychain, frisbee and branded sticker pack, and a co-branded Gerber Dagger River Shorty knife.

“We are all excited to celebrate the Dagger brand heritage and the team’s elite reputation,” said Scott Byers, brand manager at Dagger. “Being an integral part of the paddling community for so long, we are proud to pay homage to our roots and give back to the community through our 30th anniversary celebration.” 

Dagger is proud to support worthy causes aligned with the brand’s mission and values. As part of the 30th anniversary, Dagger announces ‘Maker’s Choice.’  Using the RPM and the RPM MAX as a canvas, Dagger’s specialized Makers (each with 25+ years of employment with the company) created custom kayaks to be auctioned off during the 2018 season. All proceeds from these one of a kind kayaks will be donated to First Descents (a leader in adventure-based healing for young adults impacted by cancer) and the Shannon Christy Memorial Fund (former Dagger employee and paddler whose memorial encourages female participation in paddlesports).

Dagger has provided high performance paddlecraft for 30 years and is continuing to highlight its product among the whitewater community and the brand’s passionate team of elite paddle enthusiasts, known as Team Dagger. Limited Edition Red Dawn models, The RPM, and RPM MAX models are offered in limited quantities and are available for purchase in select specialty retailers nationwide.  Connect on Dagger Facebook to see where and when the Maker’s choice models will be auctioned.
