It is quite a lot different to FS Peak. It doesn't have diagonal oriented ribs, it has more canopy curve and more panels (though panel count is not very comparable). Both have enormous amount of bridle line but that is difficult to avoid due to single skin structure which needs so much support.
Plan view of Explore is a bit more elliptical than of Peaks.
Smallest sizes of Explore have 25 panels, 12m has 27 panels. A bit surprising, kites look very similar and that difference is not big.
Both Explore and Peak have spanwise bridle line, FS calls them "C-straps" Ozone "spanwise bridge lines". Ozone has much more those lines. I know how to avoid them, I think those lines are a bit ugly. Much room for development there in single skin kites.
Wingtips of the Explore look quite good, even though not many pictures or videos show it clearly. It seems to loop well, for sure this kite is nice tool to get uphill and then pack safely if needed.
Interesting. Doesn't look much different than a Peak3 to me. Most of the video looping shows a 6m. If their 12m is faster than my 12m Peak3 and comes in ultralight at a reasonable price, I might have to give it a try for water. There's a Gin Shaman 12m on eBay but from the landboarding forum, I didn't read any critical improvements.
I was impressed a while ago to see close up a starting paraglider of this type: https://www.skyman.aero/de/gleitschirme ... -race.html
which was showing a really nice clean shape at this high aspect. Showing the potential, even if the pilot said before: In accelaration trim = depower performance still is like a stone as every just single skins.
… in fact he was faster on the bottom of the mountain as I on my muni … but maybe also just lack of my downhill performance
