The Firecracker is Pyranha’s latest Half-Slice kayak and is available in three sizes. 232, 242 and 252. The 242 is available at dealers now. The smaller 232 and larger 252 will be released at a later date.
This is Pyranha’s answer to the new Apex and Waka half slice kayaks and it looks great.
Here is what Pyranha has to say about the new Firecracker:
Explosive, downriver freeride energy that everyone can enjoy! The Firecracker is a compact half-slice to whip into every micro-eddy, snap onto every wave, and get vertical everywhere – no matter who you are, you’ll be able to throw this around, sky-gaze, and have the comfort and confidence to nail that new move.
• Compact and lightweight half-slice design. • Spinnable, surfable, stable planing hull. • A bow that stays dry downriver, but you can still get down and party with. • Enjoy explosive moments of fun and relax without consequence between them. • Rolls easy so you can try new tricks again and again until you stick the landing. • Next-generation ergonomics for all day comfort • Don’t just unlock the river, blow the doors off • Full Stout 2 outfitting

Spade Kayaks have a new half slice boat out for the smaller paddler (30kg+).

We’ve known that the new Zet Kayaks Ninja has been in development for the last few years and have seen a prototype or two in that time. So it is great to see that its development is now complete.
Zet bill the Ninja as a creek boat that can turn its hand to most things.
Sweet lines, Good times, High performance
If you’re looking for one boat that does it all, then look no further than the Zet Ninja. Our most versatile creek boat yet. The brain child of extreme paddler Honza Choutka, the Zet Ninja is the boat to use when the rivers are steep and technical, when you want to win races or when you just want to have some fun throwing it down while mashing through rowdy bits in complete control.
The Zet Ninja has taken more than 5 years to develop and has been tested by numerous world class paddlers. It has excellent stability in squirrely water and features a fast, nimble planing hull. Its progressive bow makes it smooth to boof and skip over the top of different river features. Just the right amount of stern rocker make stern squirts possible and horizontal and vertical eddy turns easy. The Zet Ninja is fast, fun and will make you feel just like the river ninja, you know you are.
