ally. The Peak4 will be similar to the Gin Shaman, with cells at the wingtips to reduce flapping.

Ozone had a very pretty single skin XXLite paraglider earlier and I'm glad they picked the Skywalk glove on the kite section too. Hopefully Flysurfer will fix the eartips of the Peak which look a bit weird (not clean as XXLite wingtips) both powered and underpowered

Yup. The difference is obvious. Had a mail exchange on the issue two years ago with Flysurfer but was told something about Reynolds number and optimal wing shape which somehow is supposed to justify wingtips shaped like soggy underwear.

Honestly the flapping and wrinkled look never bothered me much, it is still an excellent kite.

It is. But I prefer paraglider shape to parachute shape and guys being Skywalk could have fixed that in v2

If nobody at Ozone wants to do a review they can send me a 12m and I'm going to do it for them :thumb:

I don't understand Italian, but it looks good. Looks like almost no wind.
