The New Pyranha Burn Promo

Screen Shot 2013-08-19 at 19.34.38

The third generation Burn is the latest in Pyranha’s long line of cutting edge river runners.

The improvements include:

Increased length for extra speed, smoother tracking and greater control.
Sharper centre and forward edges for greater precision in river running and playing.
Re-profiled stern for speed with more edge where you need it, less where you don’t.
Tweaked rocker profile so the boat rides high and gives you the all-important boof when you need it.
Subtle volume distribution gives a confidence inspiring ride for the intermediate paddlers and those making steeper descents.
Re-profiled cockpit to reduce deck implosion and ease carrying.
