The Pyranha Scorch Medium is the boundary-smashing culmination of decades of evolution. Combining and refining features from industry-leading designs like the Burn (uncompromisingly sharp rails), 9R (volume distribution and bow rocker), and Ripper (fast and nimble planing hull) in one boat. The hybrid rocker profile with the progressive bow rocker is efficient on the move, planing over even the burliest of features. Whilst the stern kick-rocker gets the back edge of the boat out of your way on the lip of drops and ensures you skip out over whatever lies in wait below.
The Scorch’s fine balance of length and edge carries speed and maintains precise lines, even in boily, unpredictable water. While the generous but carefully tailored volume keeps you on top of the water and gives you the capacity to carry all your essentials without blocking your paddle strokes.
This is the boat for dry-hair days on local creeks, dialing in moves and lines, and packing those lessons up and carrying them through to the wildest missions and expeditions you can dream of.
Pyranha Scorch Medium Features
Bow Rocker with Wave Deflectors // Keep the deck and your face dry as you run the river between features, and help you focus on the bust through the big stuff.
Sharp, Full-Length Rails // Allow you to snap in and out of eddies, carve up the river, and hold the line through the big and boilies.
Uncompromising Length // Coming in 4 sizes, ranging all the way up to the 'X' at 10 feet long, no holds are barred on the length, speed, and fun!
Stern Kick Rocker // Gets the stern of the boat out of your way on the lip of drops.
Tapered Stern Volume and Sidewalls // When the bow goes up, the stern must go down; wedge-shaped sidewalls and tapering volume towards the stern help you get the stern down and lift the bow when the boat is on edge.
Cut-Off Stern Edge // Clean release of surface tension for fast paddling, and at the edge of a drop too.
Full Sized Grab Handles All Round. // Way easier to handle on those beastly portages or when you're loaded up for a mammoth multi-day
Stout 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.
