The 9R kick-started a creek boat design revolution; now it's time to raise the bar with the 9R II.

This sports car of a kayak is an exhilarating ride on any river, its narrow width not only increasing the 9R's dynamic speed, but also offering immense connectivity, effortless rolling, and lightning fast edge to edge transitions; the 9R's unparalleled speed is just as much fun to wield during everyday missions as it is in competitions, opening up more moves and whole new possibilities such as mid-rapid line changes and easy attainments.

The 9R II's design has been refined to offer paddlers a faster ride with greater control, because after all, #FastIsFun

A narrow, swede form hull paired with subtle paddle entry cutaways allows for perfectly placed paddle strokes and rewards them with explosive velocity.
 
Speedy Hull
Speedy Hull
A narrower planing surface increases the hull speed and quickens edge to edge transitions. Extreme bow rocker, wave deflectors, and lower bow release edges 
Progressive Rocker

A tailored progressive rocker profile engages the stern for tracking and carving performance when the kayak is being driven forwards, and releases at low to mid-speed 
Additional Volume
