Pyranha 9R Now In Full Production!

We’re extremely pleased to announce that the first production models of the 9R have just been finished, and they’re looking fantastic!

Robert Peerson and Graham, alongside a small team of great paddlers & staff in the UK and US, have been developing this kayak through several prototypes over the past few months and now we know we have not just a race boat, but a design that will be many people's "go–to" kayak.




Paddlers report that the 9R is super-fast, both on the flat and in the rough; planing well over holes as well as small waves. In addition, the performance is now more focussed and a little bit sharper, meaning more advanced paddlers will gain big rewards for good technique.

Initial stability is good, and because of its narrower width the 9R rolls especially easily. It also copes exceptionally well in cross-currents, riding over everything and continuing on the paddler’s desired path, but is equally capable of snappy changes in direction to hit tricky lines when required.

With the big Autumn races of Sickline and then the Green Race, we know that demand for this boat will be high, with Pyranha having only a small window of time to get kayaks out to those competitors. Pyranha will do everything we can to balance supply to their different markets, but anybody interested should register their interest with us at Go Kayaking very quickly, and we’d strongly advise them to give a preferred colour choice.





The 9R and Mike Patterson take a trip down the Green River Narrows. This boat needs little hype, once you paddle it you will understand; it's all about having a great time on whitewater and be it fast or mellow, the 9R produces!
