Production Pyranha 9R MKII

Unsponsored was able to get a closer look at a prototype of the new Pyranha 9R MKII earlier this year. You can check those images out by clicking here.

Thanks to Nick Jones Photography we have some images of the production Pyranha 9R MKII that was released today. Nick took the images at Go Kayaking North West paddle sports store. Go Kayaking North West have both stock and demos of the new boat available right now.

Not The Only Prototype Pyranha 9R On The Water

Last weekend we spied the very obvious black preproduction prototype Pyranha 9R MKII on the water. However there was another 9R prototype on the water that was not quite as conspicuous.

Not The Only Prototype Pyranha 9R On The WaterOrange and yellow prototype

In its classic Pyranha colours this prototype 9R doesn’t look too different to the current production model and didn’t get much attention. Given that I am a bit of a boat geek I knew it looked different from the current model.

Bren Is Back

Bren is back after seeing himself off.

Bren Is Back

This section of whitewater is not actually that easy, but I have done so many laps down it and I know it so well now, that in my head it is a “chill” run. If that makes anysense at all? My first time down it I was much more out of control, underwater and not anywhere near as relaxed.

Pyranha Ripper – Review

I’ve been boating for well over 30 years so have been well placed to see the development of the sport and particularly the design of kayaks. Kayak manufacturers are now looking back to the longer slicey kayaks that were around in the late 1990s and early 2000s and I for one am really happy that longer slicey kayaks are back. I will say now that if you have only ever paddled poppy high volume short boats or super stable creekers then you need to find yourself a slicey kayak to try. At 9ft long (medium) the Pyranha Ripper could be a contender.

Pyranha Ripper - Review

The Pyranha Ripper is one of the first modern slicey kayaks to come from one of the major players in the game that has also been widely available here in the UK. At 6ft 2″ and 200lbs I am above the recommended weight limit for the medium Ripper (145-190lbs). Nevertheless, that is the kayak I am reviewing here. In addition to the medium the Ripper is also available in small with a weight guide of 88 – 165lbs with a large sized Ripper available very soon.
