The Pyranha 9R narrow width not only increases the dynamic speed of the Pyranha 9R, but also offers immense connectivity, effortless rolling, and lightning fast edge to edge transitions, even for smaller and shorter paddlers.

The 9R is just shy of 9' in length, so it's race legal at events all over the globe, whether you're entering to win or just for the thrill, and its ground-breaking design and unparalleled speed are just as much fun to wield during your everyday missions too, opening up new moves and whole new possibilities such as mid-rapid line changes and easy attainments.

Best suited to a driven paddling style with control strokes around the bow to middle of the boat, the 9R has the agility of a much shorter kayak thanks to the tailored rocker profile, and rewards power strokes with explosive velocity thanks to its narrow width and maximum waterline.

Extreme bow rocker and innovative wave deflectors are part of the secret to the Pyranha 9R's easily sustained speed, directing water under the kayak's fast planing hull and accelerating the boat through holes and other features whilst you remain dry and focused on the next move.

The 9R's edges are soft at the bow to be forgiving, but become more pronounced towards the stern, allowing you to carve smoothly on edge with your weight back and aiding tracking during power strokes, whilst a squared-off stern allows the clean release of surface tension.
