Peak4 vs Shaman2

Postby verkiter » Sun Nov 18, 2018 4:09 pm

Very interested in any first hand comparisons between the new Peak 11 vs the Shaman 12. Interested in low end power comparison, flying characteristics, bar and overall flying impressions. These kites are not easily available where I live so I'm relying on others experiences to form my decision.
Primarily interested for snow but also thinking of special days for hydrofoil.
Thanks for any info anyone can offer!

Hi Verkiter,

We're in the making of a comparison. The Gin we have in 3 sizes and we waiting for the flysurfer Peak V4 and Ozone Oxplore V1
You can find the first Gin 12m review here: http://www.kitefinder.com/en/kites/1774 ... er-reviews

Verkiter, If you are in Champlain/Burlington area, you're only 3hrs away from me in North Conway. Maybe closer depending on where I am at the time.

We will have the Peak 4 in our demo fleet and for sale. https://www.hardwaterkiter.com/store/p7 ... _SOON.html

We will also have the Explore. We won't have any Gin as they don't have distribution here but ya never know who might show up. ;-)

We're surprised by the Gin Shaman V2. Especially the drift & stability, the low-end power of the 6m was mind blowing how it pushes 95 kg uphill ( 10 knots)

"Future of kiteboarding, a single skin kite that can float"

:) Think we already have that kind of kites, they are often called LEI's.

Just tie a bunch of pool noodles right inside the LE on a shaman or peak 4 :lol:

But....someone should modify there shaman or peak and sew on a center batten to keep the kite from collapsing should work fine then... Sergio showed in his video water relaunch is possible batten would help most likely he had to keep back line tension....and maybe some type of holes for water drainage in LE
