Perception Pirouette Super Sport White Water Kayak and Paddle
Pirouette Super Sport White Water Kayak
Big boats by today's whitewater kayak standards, the Pirouette series of kayaks by Perception are classic river runners. The Pirouette models were build for speed and handling.
Great river running kayak which plows through whitewater. A good boat for beginners and is one of the easiest boats to roll. Kayak has the normal river rash, no oil canning or deep gouges.
At 9 feet 11 inches, the Pirouette accommodates paddlers from 80 to 180 lbs. In the surf or whitewater, the Pirouette has solid secondary stability. With its shorter length and its concave deck, the Pirouette maneuvers quickly, rolls easily and is more able to pull off stunts like popping enders or pulling stern squirts than its longer brothers.
They track well compared to their shorter brethren and are faster in big water and surf, while losing little in maneuverability thanks to the pronounced rocker in the Pirouette hull. A racer by nature these boats excel at fast peel-outs and quick ferries, which is why they were popular slalom competitors.
