The new benchmark for Riverrunners!
Our new PIKE combines playing, cruising and creeking in one boat.
Paddling fun “Made in Germany” – this is how it works!The new PIKE is a sporty river runner with an enormous fun factor. Thanks to its fast and agile shape, this boat combines the paddling dynamics of a riverrunner with the safety of a creeker.
It has enough rocker and volume to climb up over big holes, a sporty stern for a lot of fun, and a planing hull for when you find an inviting river wave.The PIKE accelerates rapidly, reaches speed with just a few strokes, can be paddled on a line and or turned on the spot. In, through and out of eddies, surfing and carving becomes a real pleasure with it. The flat bottom impresses with a lot of guidance and speed and follows precisely every stroke. You can add eddies and waves to your line as smoothly as if you were sitting in a slalom boat. Plus: There’s a lot of fun in the stern – it invites you to play. Thanks to its low volume, the new PIKE turns fast and super-simple and can easily be undercut. In the bow there is a lot of rocker, safety and volume for wild water. Besides all of its fun factors, it’s also a serious WW kayak. When things get rough, the new PIKE always stays on top and dry thanks to its voluminous and strongly curved bow. The “SPORT”-version, which includes the complete PRO-seat-system with hip pads and backrest with ratchet system. Plus 3D-thigh braces and bulkhead footrest. To safe weight, it comes without the bottom rail and without foam pillars.
The new PIKE convinces with great WW-potential and takes the paddling dynamics of a riverrunner to a new level, with the safety of a creeker. With the functionality, comfort and design of modern boat building.Technical Data

The PRO-fitting provides an excellent contact to the boat. Every move of the paddler is directly transferred to the boat. This leads to more agility and a far better control over the kayak while demanding athletic use. The bottom rail in combination with sturdy and lightweight foam domes in the front and back provides the already very durable HTP-shell with even more rigidity. Additional stability is offered by the ergonomically-shaped PRO seat which is connected with the floor rail in a shape-locking manner. The PRO-seat is longer, wider and its hip-padding can be individually adjusted with the supplied foam pads with regard to width and height. The lightweight back-belt offers a very good hold and is easy to adjust, thanks to the new mounting. With the new PRO features the Prijon whitewater kayaks are significantly lighter and stiffer.
SPORT is an economical version, due to simplified equipment. For paddlers looking for a light kayak, not needing a full equipped one.
