The People’s Boat –
The ancestors of the Burn were tough creekers, the new one has been given the genes of a river runner. The bow and hull have been further developed. Additional length, clearer edges, more rocker in the bow and little volume adjustment. To the eyes, there are no big changes, but on whitewater you feel the difference. The Burn sits fantastically flush and steady in the water, giving safety and stability at once. There is hardly another kayak in this size class that is faster on a wave. The revised Connect outfitting is top class! The Burn III has aluminium handles, the seat is easy to adjust and tailor. Foam allows you to adjust the seat angle and height. Summary: Less creeker, more river runner and as comfortable as always. One for almost everyone and everything!
CKUK Mag – Burn 3 Review
The Burn 3 does a great job of following on from, and pushing forwards, the legacy of its predecessors. Its balance of versatility and performance sets a very high standard that will offer a huge amount to a broad range of whitewater paddlers. We loved the fact that it gives you a desire to push, due to the deadly accuracy and control that it supplies, which only enhances a really tangible sense of confidence when in the cockpit.
Sickline, Green Race, WW Grand Prix – The 9R is the first modern race kayak aimed squarely at the short boat class of extreme races the world over.
Blazing fast, precise and forgiving, the 9R sets the standard against which all others will be judged. Narrow entry and asymmetric plan for speed. Edge for precision. High bow, tailored rocker and volume distribution keep you on top of the water in control and in the lead. Setting the pace. R is for Race.
The Nano is a short river running boat with a playful nature, it has influences from Shiva, Jed and Burn make for a super manoeuvrable, compact boat with creek potential, it has the ability to run harder lines as well as open up play spots on your favourite river.
Aspiring paddlers will enjoy taking it down their local run, eddy hopping and pushing the technical aspects of the river, its stable and easy to roll to inspire confidence and hull allows plenty of play opportunities.
More advanced paddlers might like to take it on steeper, more demanding rivers that they know to push themselves a bit harder, or explore parts of the river that a bigger boat can’t reach. The flatter hull will also allow them to play on features on the way down, rock splat and spin.
Ultimate Steep Creeker
The Shiva has a rounded hull, soft stern chines, a high bow rocker and loads of volume in the bow and stern.
These features give you softer landings on big drops, rear driving force when you want it, awesome boofability and resurfacing capability. The rounded & high deck, with a high centre of volume, countering a low centre of gravity for easy rollability.
If you are running big drops and pushing harder lines the Shiva is the one you want.
“If you are an intermediate to advanced whitwater paddler, looking for a confidence inspiring kayak to take that next step and push yourself to go steeper the we think you could really get along with Shiva.“

Delphin 150 & 155 (standard/surf models)
The most exciting thing to happen to Sea Kayaking in years!
This new P&H Delphin 155 turns traditional sea kayak design on its head and challenges many preconceived ideas of how a sea kayak should look and behave. The cockpit has been move backwards and the stern squared off so the bow just kisses the water, but when paddling the stern engages and aids tracking. This combination is unique to the Delphin creating a kayak that is long enough to paddle like a traditional sea kayak on flat water with enough speed to keep up with the pack but will transform into a new genre of free-ride sea kayak when it hits moving water, coming alive in tide races, over falls and surging water.
Aries 150 & 155
The Aries takes the dramatically different design features and benefits from the Delphin and refines them for composite material systems and for the lower impact environment where composite kayaks excel. Hard chines and a pronounced deck are smoothed, producing a very forgiving, speedy and lighter weight kayak.
The Aries is ideal for anyone looking for a versatile, lightweight and stable kayak to explore the coast line and will excite those looking for a kayak to trip out to tide races to play the sea. The Aries will cater for the day paddler and those that weekend from their kayak will not be disappointed.
Scorpio & Scorpio LV
Just like its composite brother the Scorpio provides a very efficient hull shape that is super stable and very easy to control.

The Scorpio is a design that will suit both the professional sea kayak user and the individual owner who are looking for a stable and fast kayak for more exposed conditions with greater all round durability than the composite version.
Available in two sizes the Scorpio LV is finely tuned to maximize performance for lighter paddlers.
Cetus LV, MV, HV
Fast paced and responsive and really easy to carve and turn, this is the middle ground for those who want a bit of extra volume but are too light for the original Cetus.
