Pyranha Karnali Experience Kayak Full Connect Spec River Runner
A truly forgiving, high volume River Runner and Creeking kayak that has such a predictable ride it will keep you inspired to get back out on the water and progress from your very first days to long into your paddling life.
Developed from the World leading Burn, but with softer and more forgiving edges vs the edge and extreme responsiveness of the Burn
With a remarkably stable hull, softened edge profile and generous rocker, the Karnali puts your mind at ease and allows you to concentrate on the river ahead rather than what’s happening underneath you. Yet there’s still fantastic performance potential that’s only available in a semi planing hull such as on the Karnali.
High knee, and low hip cockpit combing with Pyranha’s key hole cockpit and new lower seat position gives great comfort for hours in the kayak, and makes the Karnali especially easy to roll.
Helping further with your peace of mind, the Karnali comes with the latest outfitting and safety innovations connecting you with the kayak whilst paddling your favourite run or tackling your first or latest big mission abroad.
High Volume Hull
High volume hull with a softer rounded edge profile makes for a forgiving and predictable ride.
Softer edges with lower back cockpit and smoother hull cross section increases ease of rolling.
Large rocker and V shaped deck give increased lift and controlled resurfacing in big volume water.
Anodised Bow & Stern Rescue
Pyranha Connect rescue points, made by UK climbing specialist DMM who manufacture our security bars with the same process that has held them at the forefront of the climbing market for years.
Connect Grab Handles
All our grab handles are made using climbing grade webbing, as we only want webbing that you could trust in a climbing harness in our kayaks.

Longer, more ergonomically shaped seat pan provides a 3 way adjustable system that gives a bomb proof seating position.
