As the name suggests, the Pyranha Fusion Connect 30 S is a cross-over kayak which allows the paddler to enjoy two great areas of paddle sport, white water and touring. Super stable, fast and easy to paddle, the Fusion gives you the freedom to choose from some fun whitewater or checking out some estuaries or a sheltered bay. The tried and tested Pyranha skeg system adds a great feature allowing you to track in a straight line and the drag reducing skeg box allows the water to flow straight out of the stern of the kayak. The Connect 30 spec features fully adjustable outfitting for comfort and control. Don't just paddle, 'Connect' with the water. The Fusion Connect 30 S is the smaller brother to the Fusion Connect 30 L.

I bought this kayak unseen based only on research. I was looking for a kayak that could do well in flatwater and hold it's own in whitewater. What a great boat! With the skeg down, it tracks perfectly. With the skeg up, it will turn on a dime. With the semi-V bow it cuts through the water and maintains very good speed. Both primary and secondary stability are top notch. It's also really easy to roll. The Connect 30 is super comfortable and easy to set up. Storage hatch stays dry, but packing is tricky due to limited space and depth at the opening. I'm 5'9 and 165 lbs- and this is a good size for me. Any bigger and I would reccomend the larger size model.
