Description     Specs

The Ripper takes the #FastIsFun ethos introduced by the 9R, and combines it with a playful stern for an extra dose of adrenaline. Standout features of the design are generous bow rocker for a dry ride, a highly surfable, supremely maneuverable planing hull, maximum waterline for exceptional downriver speed and easy attainments, plus the security of a full plate footrest and a complete array of security points and handles. With enough volume to take on all your favorite runs, in the Ripper you'll be stern squirting out of eddies, dip turning around rocks, and soul surfing every wave... after all, kayaking is meant to be fun!

Materials

MZ3 Polyethylene
Weight: 44lbs

  Balancing the competing demands of stiffness (for both performance and paddler safety) and impact resistance for a whitewater kayak has always been challenging, but we’re pleased to announce that in collaboration with our suppliers, we have taken a huge leap forwards in this arena with the development of MZ3, a super-linear polyethylene.

MZ3 has produced some highly encouraging independent laboratory tests (showing a significant toughness indicator improvement of over 50%), and over a year’s worth of intensive field testing by Team Pyranha has highlighted a noticeable increase in scratch resistance over our previous compound.

MZ3 is exclusive to Pyranha, and has helped us drive down weight and increase the durability of our premium products; whilst we will never claim a kayak to be unbreakable, we will never stop striving towards that goal.
