The Machno is intended for creeking the biggest rivers available - whether that's on your doorstep or the other side of the globe. On the water it is at home, gliding down river and giving you the ability to pierce features. The kayak is equipped with Pyranha's highest level outfitting, Stout 2. Ensuring you as a paddler are well connected to have full control over your Machno.

High Volume Design

Carefully tailored volume provides ample buoyancy through large features, with a pointed bow splitting water efficiently and a rounded stern smoothly deflecting it at the base of drops.

Balanced Rocker Profile

Extreme bow rocker lifts the kayak over features, efficiently directing water under the hull for speed, and in combination with the steep rocker in the stern facilitates almost effortless boofing.

Wave Deflectors

Another Pyranha innovation; wave deflectors generate dynamic lift through features and break surface tension acting on the kayak's bow, all whilst deflecting spray so you can remain focused.

Moderate Edge

Developing smoothly from the paddler's feet to the stern, offering grip on big water and controlled carving performance, yet high enough to prevent tripping on cross currents or shallow rock slides.

Softened Side Walls

Deflects water under the hull during turning or when encountering strong cross currents, avoiding a build-up of pressure that could hinder manoeuvrability or lead to a capsize.

Wide, Curved Planing Hull

The stable platform of a wide planing hull gives highly agile, predictable performance and features moderate curvature for soft landings, easy edge transitions and improved tracking.

Parallel Bow Handle

Bow handle orientated parallel to the kayak's centre line, maintaining a uniform deck peak and allowing a smaller recess to be used, reducing water-loading.

Action Camera Mount

An insert located just behind the bow handle provides a secure attachment point for a variety of action cameras.

Full Sized Bow Handle

A full-sized, drop-forged aluminium handle in place of the bow security point offers increased handling possibilities both on and off the water.

Open Stern Handle Recess

Extended recess remains open to the stern edge for efficient drainage and comfortable access, whilst also providing a well-guarded drain bung location.

Curved Deck Peak

Bow and stern decks feature a rounded peak with a lightly concaved gradient, creating positive pressure during resurfacing for stability and control, as well as facilitating easier rolling.
