Pyranha have been making kayaks since 1971 and in that time they have designed and manufactured some fo the best kayaks out there. In 1976 they produced their first generation of the Pyranha Everest, which was also their first serious whitewater kayak, it was also a fibreglass kayak! In 1979, they relocated to their Marina Village site in Runcorn. It was here that they made their first plastic kayak and later on in 1982, where they became the first kayak manufacturers to use computer controlled manufacturing. Between 1982 and 1986, saw the launch of the Pyranha Rotabat, the worlds first super short kayak, this was then followed by the Pyranha Mountain Bat and also the Pyranha Robroy. The robroy was the worlds first self draining kayak, maybe the first Sit on Top Kayak? 1991 saw the release of the Pyranha Stuntbat, 1993/94 saw the launch of the Acrobat which was the first kayak with a planing hull, while 1995/1996 saw the launch of the first generation Pyranha Surfjet. Then in 1997, Pyranha yet again set a first, the Ina Zone which was the first katyak to be made in 3 sizes, the 220,230 and the 240. 2002 saw the launch of Pyranha USA, while in 2004 they purchase P & H Sea Kayaks. One year later, they then take over Mobile Adventure, which later becomes Venture Canoes / Kayaks . 2011, then sees Pyranha Move to their current factory...

The Pyranha Brass-Centered Wheel Nuts are a crucial component for securing your footrest properly. A loose footrest can pose unnecessary risks. These kayak footrest bolts come in two size options: 6mm, which is compatible with most boats from 2009 to the present, and 8mm, designed for boats manufactured before 2009. These nuts are sold individually. It's advisable to keep some spares in your safety kit, especially for extended multi-day paddling trips.
