The Ripper takes the #FastIsFun ethos introduced by the 9R, and combines it with a playful stern for an extra dose of adrenaline.
Standout features of the design are generous bow rocker for a dry ride, a highly surfable, supremely manoeuvrable planing hull, maximum waterline for exceptional downriver speed and easy attainments, plus the security of a full plate footrest and a complete array of security points and handles.
With enough volume to take on all your favourite runs, in the Ripper you'll be stern squirting out of eddies, dip turning around rocks, and soul surfing every wave... after all, kayaking is meant to be fun! Click here to read more information.
With the Fusion, you can combine both whitewater and touring to create bigger adventures.
You might just be getting started in the sport, and haven't settled on which type of kayaking you prefer yet, or perhaps you're looking for unrestricted adventures that combine the adrenaline rush of whitewater with a peaceful cruise across a lake or along a canal; either way, the Fusion has you covered, and even features a spacious hatch for overnight trips or a scenic picnic.
The combination of a moderate length waterline, balanced rocker profile, and retractable skeg mean you can be fast on the flat and manoeuvrable on the river, whilst the adjustable outfitting and spacious cockpit offer security, control, and comfort in equal measures.Click here to read more information.
Afon Machno, 53.064°, -3.779° the tributary that powers the infamous Fairy Glen, and just over an hour from Pyranha HQ, this is where initial testing for the Machno took place.
The Pyranha Machno has been refined through the feedback of Team Pyranha members worldwide to feature a formidable bow rocker profile that keeps you on top of things, and a wide planing hull with soft chines that's both stable and predictable.
When you're in the Machno, you'll almost feel as though time has been slowed down as you glide in to the rapids, waiting for the perfect moment to plant those key paddle strokes and nail that boof, flair or kickflip*.Click here to read more information.
The 9R L is for larger paddlers and those who are pushing the limits of the sport, but it's far more than just a big 9R.
As the name suggests, the 9R L is still just shy of 9' in length, but additional volume has been carefully distributed to carry more gear, larger paddlers or blast through bigger volume features and steeper rivers.
The rear grab handle has been moved to the stern edge to allow comfortable lowering of the boat, easier access in bow pin situations and improved swimmer rescue capabilities. The key thinking behind this move though was to remove the scoop created by most stern handles and prevent you looking at the sky at the bottom of bigger drops; it definitely worked!
To maintain the effortless manoeuvrability and forgiving nature of the 9R hull, the sidewalls have been softened at the stern to remove any pressure build up when the 9R L is fully loaded and sitting lower in the water, so you can literally nudge the boat with your knees for ultra-precise course corrections.
The stern rocker on the 9R L has been revised to maintain lateral speed when travelling through features and a slight V has been added in the rear of hull to improve tracking during the forward power phase and loosen up the stern during turning stokes.
The 9R L's drain bung has been relocated to the side of the stern to allow efficient drainage whilst shoulder carrying and put it further out of harm's way.
As it's anticipated that the 9R L will be used in more demanding and adventurous locations, a security point has been added to the bow of boat for increased rescue options and added haulage possibilities during extreme portaging.
If you weigh 90kg or less and prefer extra speed over added volume, then check out the 9R Medium instead.
The 9R L is here, and we're incredibly proud to put our name to it.Click here to read more information.
WELCOME TO THE NEXT STEP IN CREEK BOAT EVOLUTION...
Narrow width not only increases the dynamic speed of the Pyranha 9R, but also offers immense connectivity, effortless rolling, and lightning fast edge to edge transitions, even for smaller and shorter paddlers.
The 9R is just shy of 9' in length, so it's race legal at events all over the globe, whether you're entering to win or just for the thrill, and its ground-breaking design and unparalleled speed are just as much fun to wield during your everyday missions too, opening up new moves and whole new possibilities such as mid-rapid line changes and easy attainments.
Best suited to a driven paddling style with control strokes around the bow to middle of the boat, the 9R has the agility of a much shorter kayak thanks to the tailored rocker profile, and rewards power strokes with explosive velocity thanks to its narrow width and maximum waterline.
Extreme bow rocker and innovative wave deflectors are part of the secret to the 9R's easily sustained speed, directing water under the kayak's fast planing hull and accelerating the boat through holes and other features whilst you remain dry and focused on the next move.
The 9R's edges are soft at the bow to be forgiving, but become more pronounced towards the stern, allowing you to carve smoothly on edge with your weight back and aiding tracking during power strokes, whilst a squared-off stern allows the clean release of surface tension.
If you weigh 75kg+ and prefer a little more volume for taking on multi-day expeditions and steeper rivers, but don't want to miss out on the #FastIsFun experience, then check out the 9R Large instead. Click here to read more information.
