Plastic Sprint Kayak or Racing K1 Kayak

The Venture Lightning is a plastic sprint kayak that was designed as a joint project between the British Canoe Union and and the design team at Pyranha Kayaks. Why... to get junior paddlers into the world of Sprint Kayak Racing.

The Lightning kayak features a tough, durable high quality plastic shell. This then incorporates a large sprint kayak style cockpit, the front of the kayak houses a set of pedal footrests while the rear of the kayak has a rudder. Located on the rear deck is a small bracket that is perfect for holding and supporting your race number.

February Staff Newsletter

February was a busy month in the shop. As well as a number of reps coming to see us, and a number of visits to make, we also attended the Run, Walk, Crawl Brecon to Cardiff Ultra, and hosted a climbing shoe demo with Tenaya at local bouldering wall Spot Climbing. We still managed to get out, and members of Team Up and Under could be found in many parts of the UK; including in the Brecon Beacons, the Lakes, South Downs, Scotland, as well as further afield in Chamonix and George L still in Thailand.

January Staff Newsletter

January saw us starting to get into the swing of things again. A little snow saw many of the team in the Beacons, as well as further afield with trips to the Peak District, Cheddar Gorge and Pembrokeshire all squeezed in. New Years day allowed few of us to get out (even if the weather wasn't great in South Wales) but a number were in still Snowdonia and elsewhere where it was a little nicer.
