The third in the series of Pyranha Burn is as hot as all its predecessors.The Burn 3 brings with it all the heritage of the previous Burns with some subtle new changes to once again improve and increase performance. Paddlers have come to rely on the Burn's combination of playful hull, precise edges and forgiving deck profile for everything from the beginnings of whitewater to Class V creeks, and the new Burn III doesn't disappoint.

The Burn's combination of stability and precision make it a proven all round performer. Sharper rails give greater control, more precision for pin point accuracy when running rivers, and increased playfulness. Interestingly, if you lean really far forward you can actually spin into micro-eddies as the rails in the front dig in and the stern, clear of the water, is free to spin. The Burn III is a boat that reacts very differently depending on driver input (shifting your weight fore and aft), which is fun once you figure it out and forgiving in the meantime. The re-profiled stern has an increased edge to help the speed and tracking, but also to reduce drag.

When running shallow welsh creeks, hard edges aren’t usually a good thing as they easily clip rocks. Pyranha has solved this problem by designing the Burn III with high edges above the waterline. In order to engage them, the Burn III should be edged quite aggressively. While beginners might feel a bit uneasy at first tilting so far over, the Burn's confidence-inspiring secondary stability and edge allows you to carve much harder than in some of it's competitors.

A slight increase in length gives improved speed and tracking, helping you to get around on the river, make ferry glides, get eddies, punch waves and holes, and keep on line in big water. The increased rocker towards the front to help it ride through features and to improve boofing. It's stability will help give you tonnes of confidence to push things a little further so this makes it a great all rounder for beginners and experienced paddlers alike.

The cockpit has also been re-profiled not only improving comfort and fit, but making it easier to edge and roll.

Pyranha have also developed their Stout Outfitting, taking all the solid and reputable features of the Stout 1, and adding two more rigid thigh grips for improved connectivity. Thicker updated hip pads also improve your hip-to-boat contact ratio.

Maybe the most important change with the Burn III is that it comes in four sizes.If you were in the medium Burn II but found you were on the high end of the paddler weight range, you will now likely fit perfectly in a large Burn III.

All in all the Burn is a great whitewater kayak, whether you are just getting into whitewater paddling, and want a dependable boat that will help you to learn and improve, or are a dedicated whitewater paddling looking to get a new boat to fire up some steep whitewater. It continues to be a really versatile boat but this time is longer, thinner and packs on extra speed.

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.
