Developed from the World leading Burn, but with softer and more forgiving edges vs. the edge and extreme responsiveness of the Burn
With a remarkably stable hull, softened edge profile and generous rocker, the Karnali puts your mind at ease and allows you to concentrate on the river ahead rather than what's happening underneath you, yet there's still fantastic performance potential that's only available in a semi planning hull such as Karnali.
High knee, and low hip cockpit coaming with Pyranha's key hole cockpit and new lower seat position gives great comfort for hours in the kayak, and makes Karnali especially easy to roll
Helping further with your peace of mind, the Karnali comes with the latest outfitting and safety innovations connecting you with the kayak whilst paddling your favourite run or tackling your first or latest big mission abroad."
"The Karnali is stable, fast, and nimble; resurfaces predictably and rolls incredibly
easily. It's softer chine makes for a boat that will suit everyone from
beginners to Class V junkies."
Adam Goshorn - Team Pyranha
"This boat has rounder edges compared to other Pyranha river running boats, it is more forgiving on tough eddy lines and allows you to put it on edge further while feeling balanced. When you get this boat up to speed it stays in line very well. It is also nimble when going for technical moves at lower speeds, it turns well from a pivot point right under the seat.
I think this will be a great race boat for myself. It planes out of drops really nicely and boofs with ease. The rounder hull also allows for forgiveness on the flatter landings off drops, it will be a great choice for all paddlers from beginners to experts."
