Completely under the radar: sky country

Postby merl » Wed Jun 23, 2021 2:01 pm

Just stumbled across a brand I had never heard of: sky country.

Most interesting is that they have a single skin looking like the peak 4 (with wingtip cells) https://sky-country.com/casper/ and a hybrid (like Marabou and firefly)
https://sky-country.com/hysper/

Anyone know more about these?

Another Russian brand that makes paragliders and foil kites. Less known than Paraavis or Elf. They are under the radar even there. They don't advertise themselves much. Can't say anything good or bad about their kites, since they are the rare breed and I simply do not see their kites on our spots. But they make an impression that they're trying to be Skywalk/Flysurfer copycats.

Flysurfer are not (yet) making a single skin hybrid tho...

I found some facebook pages from the "Czech kite team" which have some prices:

There is a test here:

with a video on page 2 in which you can see how the kite behaves.
