The Riot Thunder isn't just your average river running kayak. When designing the Thunder, Riot have produced a kayak that sits perfectly between both their Creeker model, the Riot Magnum and their Freestyle Playboat the Riot Astro! On the face of things the Thunder looks to be a very capable river runner, but take a look at its hull design and you'll see some serious fun to be had.
The Thunder's Semi-Planing Hull gives it excellent characteristics as a river runner. It's relatively flat hull with just the right amount of rocker provides speed in those longer wave-train sections, whilst it's volume proportions and beveled edges make maneuvering in and out of eddies a breeze. The Thunder find's itself at home on Grade 3-4 White Water and acts as the ideal kayak for those looking to river run as well as play in the standing waves and other features on the way down!
Both the Thunder 65 and 76 feature Riot's Unity Seating System, Suregrip Thigh Braces, Floating Backrest and Adjustable Creeker Footbrace, so that you can remain comfortable for extended periods of time, whilst maintaining the most connectivity with the kayak. Overall, the Thunder makes an excellent river running package that both experienced paddlers and novice to intermediates can appreciate!

We offer a delivery service for the Riot Thunder throughout the UK & Ireland to home and work addresses.
Delivery times are estimates based on years of experience; we do not offer a guaranteed timed delivery service. Our overnight service works well for the core more densely populated areas of the UK for Clothing and Equipment orders. However more remote less densely populated areas will not be covered by a next day service.
Delivery of canoes and kayaks is classed as “ugly freight” because mechanical handling and automatic parcel processing cannot be used; therefore a delivery time of 3-5 working days is more realistic. For remote location that delivery time will be dependent on the local courier’s ability to onward ship the goods. Not all areas of the UK are serviced by vehicles that can handle canoes and kayaks. Online orders can be tracked online using the courier’s website – tracking details will be provided. We make every effort to deliver goods within the estimated time scales
The delivery price will be shown in the shopping basket.
