Swede-Form Design: Widest point behind the seat for confidence inspiring stability.

High Bow & Extreme Rocker Profile: Eats up holes and obstacles, resurfaces quickly and makes turning easy.

Lightweight: Acceleration comes easily and portages even easier.

Wave Deflectors: Keep your face dry and prevent the deck loading with water, so nothing slows you or the kayak down.

Ultimate Connectivity: Fully adjustable C4S outfitting and a narrow profile put you firmly in control.

Ultra-Ergonomic Design: Minimal width and low knee profile make vertical strokes and edge to edge transitions super-fast and smooth.

Maximum Length: Combined with the narrow hull, the extra-long water line gives supreme speed and effortless rolling.

Dynamic Edge: Rounded at the bow for forgiveness, sharper at the stern for more control and to keep you on line.

Full Planing Hull: Works in combination with the bow rocker to lift the boat out of the water and allow quick bursts of hull speed without getting bogged down behind a bow wave.

Clean Release At Stern: Reduces drag, allowing hull speed to be maintained longer through the glide phases between paddle strokes.

Efficient Water Shedding: A peaked deck at bow and stern, plus a low profile cockpit help prevent water loading.

What Pyranha Says about the 9’R’s

Welcome to the next step in creek boat evolution.

In Stock at the River Store come check it out or take one for a spin!

The 9R is a whitewater kayak that can take you anywhere, and fast! You get all the length you need without feeling like you’re sat in a bath tub; the narrow width not only increases the dynamic speed of the creek boat, but along with our innovative C4S outfitting and a lower knee profile, it also increases your connectivity to offer ultimate control.From races to waterfalls and expeditions, the 9R holds its line, but thanks to its extreme rocker profile, it will also let you turn on a dime. A planing hull with soft edges will let you soul surf forever, carving as much as you like without catching you out, and the high bow will keep you from nose diving into the front of the wave.The front wave-deflectors don’t just look cool, they stayed put in the 9R’s design by special request of our Team Paddlers, and they do wonders to accelerate the boat over any hole and deflect the water away from your face so you can concentrate on your next move.The 9R suits a paddling style with control strokes around the bow to middle of the boat, so you can make sure each one gives you power, and the speed and manoeuvrability will help you catch more eddies, make more ferry glides and punch through more holes; more importantly, the 9R will let you enjoy your whitewater kayak even more!

 

THE CREEK BOAT EVOLUTION CONTINUES

The new 9R L; for larger paddlers and those who are pushing the limits of the sport. The 9R L is far more than just a large Pyranha 9’R though, we’ve made a few feature tweaks to make this boat even more impressive. Additional volume has been carefully distributed to carry more gear, larger paddlers or blast through bigger volume features and steeper rivers. Rear grab handle has been moved to stern edge to allow comfortable lowering of the boat and easier access in bow pin situations and improved swimmer rescue situations. We’ve revised stern rocker to maintain lateral speed when travelling through features and slight V in rear of hull to improve tracking during forward phase and manoeuvrability during turning stokes.

The 9R L can take you anywhere, and fast! You get all the length you need without feeling like you’re sat in a bath tub; the narrow width not only increases the dynamic speed of the boat, but along with our innovative outfitting and a lower knee profile, it also increases your connectivity to offer ultimate control.

From races to waterfalls and expeditions, the 9R L holds its line, but thanks to its extreme rocker profile, it will also let you turn on a dime. A planing hull with soft edges will let you soul surf forever, carving as much as you like without catching you out, and the high bow will keep you from nose diving into the front of the wave.

The front wave-deflectors don’t just look cool, they stayed put in the Pyranha 9’R L’s design by special request of our Team Paddlers, and they do wonders to accelerate the boat over any hole and deflect the water away from your face so you can concentrate on your next move.

The 9R L suits a paddling style with control strokes around the bow to middle of the boat, so you can make sure each one gives you power, and the speed and manoeuvrability will help you catch more eddies, make more ferry glides and punch through more holes; more importantly, the 9R L will let you enjoy paddling even more!
