6 of 12R, Half a Dozen of the Other

The Green Race has come and gone for another year, and this one was certainly rather special for us here at Pyranha…

Holt McWhirt experiencing the 12R’s face-melting speed…

Favorites Dane Jackson and Pat Keller placed 1st and 2nd, but we’re beyond stoked with Team Pyranha’s very own Holt McWhirt bagging the Bronze in the 12R; perhaps almost as pleasingly, the 12R placed strongly across the rest of the results table too, with paddlers who chose it as their ride laying down 6 of the top 12 times:

3rd – Holt McWhirt – 04:18.4

4th – Isaac Levinson – 04:19.0

6th – Michael Ferraro – 04:19.4

7th – Matt Anger – 04:21.1

9th – Jeremy Nash (1st place Junior) – 04:22.0

11th – Dylan McKinney – 04:23.1


Legend Isaac Levinson with his game face on…

The cherry on top was seeing something we’ve been dreaming about for some time; Team Pyranha representing in the longboat category at the Green Race! Bring on next year…

We won’t be putting the 12Rs away until it’s time to train for 2019’s event though; those who’ve been paddling the limited number which arrived on the first container have been telling us repeatedly how much fun it is for everyday missions, how surprisingly maneuvrable it is, and how much it’s changing the way they break rapids down and opening their eyes to new mission possibilities. If you’d like to get in on the fun, there’ll be a limited amount of stock available on the next container arriving shortly, so get your orders in with a dealer now!

P.S. The 12R is also now available outside the US too 😉
