MZ3 Polyethylene
Weight: 46lbs

  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.
