A full line-up was exhibited at Paddle expo, showing off their kayak, sea kayak, touring kayaks and open canoes from Pyranha, P&H and Venture.
Mathew Wilkinson steered us away from the well publicised Pyranha 9R and the rest of the kayak fleet to the Venture and P&H Custom Sea Kayaks range of expedition and sea kayaks.
First up was the new sail system for the Venture Islay 14 sit on top kayak, which has been designed to obviously make life easier and easily adjustable to catch the wind at most angles just like a sailing boat – simple, effective and very affordable.
Next up was a P&H Scorpio in a blue colour scheme that highlighting their custom coloured combinations available on the composite kayaks combined with top-class build quality. Matt was keen to add that any combinations were available to suit many tastes, which involved many weird, wonderful, beautiful and interesting designs – though not all were to everyone’s taste!
However, the beautiful metallic aqua blue kayak on display just showed exactly what could be done.
Below that sat the impressive looking newly re-designed composite constructed Venture Capella 167, continuing a long line and heritage of proven sea kayak design.
The full Pyranha, P&H and venture plastic range are all constructed at Pyranha’s Runcorn factory in the UK with the exception of the composite kayaks, which are hand built at Pyranha’s dedicated facility in Derby
