Afon Machno, 53.064°, -3.779° the tributary that powers the infamous Fairy Glen, and just over an hour from Pyranha HQ, this is where initial testing for the Machno took place.

The Pyranha Machno has been refined through the feedback of Team Pyranha members worldwide to feature a formidable bow rocker profile that keeps you on top of things, and a wide planing hull with soft chines that's both stable and predictable.

When you're in the Machno, you'll almost feel as though time has been slowed down as you glide in to the rapids, waiting for the perfect moment to plant those key paddle strokes and nail that boof, flair or kickflip*.

*or just cruise stylishly through the maelstrom.


                                                                                  Free Rivers Fund

As we named the Machno after a local river close to our hearts, it made sense to use the popularity of our latest #CreekMachine to support the Free Rivers Fund, and so in 2018, we will donate 1% of the RRP on every Machno sold to the Free Rivers Fund.


The 9R II's design has been refined to offer paddlers a faster ride with greater control, because after all, #FastIsFun



Bow Handle
Parallel Bow Handle
Bow handle orientated parallel to the kayak's centerline, maintaining a uniform deck peak and allowing a smaller recess to be used, reducing water-loading.
Action Camera Mount
Action Camera Mount
An insert located just behind the bow handle provides a secure attachment point for a variety of action cameras.

Second Bow HandleSecond, Full-Sized Bow

A full-sized, drop-forged aluminum handle in place of the bow security point offers increased handling possibilities both on and off the water.

Curved Deck PeakCurved Deck Peak

Bow and stern decks feature a rounded peak with a lightly concaved gradient, creating positive pressure during resurfacing for stability and control, as well as facilitating easier rolling.

Open Stern Handle RecessOpen Stern Handle Recess

Extended recess remains open to the stern edge for efficient drainage and comfortable access, whilst also providing a well-guarded drain bung location.

High Volume DesignHigh Volume Design

Carefully tailored volume provides ample buoyancy through large features, with a pointed bow splitting water efficiently and a rounded stern smoothly deflecting it at the base of drops.

Wave DeflectorsWave Deflectors

Another Pyranha innovation; wave deflectors generate dynamic lift through features and break surface tension acting on the kayak's bow, all whilst deflecting spray so you can remain focused.

Balanced Rocker ProfileBalanced Rocker Profile

Extreme bow rocker lifts the kayak over features, efficiently directing water under the hull for speed, and in combination with the steep rocker in the stern facilitates almost effortless boofing.

Softened Side WallsSoftened Side Walls

Deflects water under the hull during turning or when encountering strong cross currents, avoiding a build-up of pressure that could hinder maneuverability or lead to a capsize.

Moderate EdgeModerate Edge

Developing smoothly from the paddler's feet to the stern, offering grip on big water and controlled carving performance, yet high enough to prevent tripping on cross currents or shallow rock slides.


Wide, Curved Planing HullWide, Curved Planing Hull

The stable platform of a wide planing hull gives highly agile, predictable performance and features moderate curvature for soft landings, easy edge transitions and improved tracking.

Stout 2 OutfittingStout 2 Outfitting

Pyranha's second generation Stout system, featuring robust, adjustable thigh grips with optional hooker attachment and over-sized, deep-fill padded hip pads.
