As the name suggests, the Pyranha Fusion is a cross-over kayak which allows the paddler to enjoy two great areas of paddle sport, white water and touring.



Super stable, fast and easy to paddle, the Fusion gives you the freedom to choose from some fun whitewater or checking out some estuaries or a sheltered bay.

The tried and tested Pyranha skeg system adds a great feature allowing you to track in a straight line and the drag reducing skeg box allows the water to flow straight out of the stern of the kayak.

I may not have much experience but this looks like a perfect boat for me. Great for small rivers and for my solo expeditions, skeg is doing great job on lakes and bigger rivers. I own a medium size, cocpit is comfortable and easy to access (or escape in case of emergency;) I'm very satisfied with this buy.

This boat is amazingly stable and very forgiving.
A brilliant boat to learn a river in and also has an amazing amount of room in the hold at the back behind a bulkhead, and loads of room, for me at least, behind the full plate footrest for kit on an expedition.
The skeg system is awesome for tracking in a straght line.
The Fusion is surprisingly maneuverable and can turn as fast if not faster than the pyranha burn (creek boat).
My one has the connect 30 outfitting and i love it for it's comfort so i can stay on the water for hours.
This boat is so easy to roll but it's edges are still forgiving so they don't catch on moving water.
I've paddled it on the sea, on rapids; like symonds yat, estuarys, moving water, surfed a couple of standing waves from weirs.
