Re: Looks like this will be the new Flysurfer Infinity 4.0 bar

Read in the FAQ section of the Connect bar: Is the CONNECT Bar working with other Flysurfer products? No, the CONNECT Bar is only working with the PEAK4 product line so far.

Re: Flysurfer released Peak 4

That wingtip fix was a right thing to do. The cells are a bit of compromise (1.1 skin, not a single skin? :), Ozone XXLite seems to just have narrower wingtips to avoid the issue but they had way higher AR too though. It’s certainly not easy to hit 33% size increase for each step, and 5-8m gap is a ...

Re: Moon on a stick?

I believe a great surfboard is light and has proper shape, a good kitesurfboard should be rather strong and a good foilboard should be tiny and thin. Trying to merge these three features into one would get you something rideable, but it’s going to suck if you expect more than mediocre/amateurish res...

Re: Core and German engineering meme

1. Snapping bars 2. Exploding struts 3. Proprietary valves 4. Unsafe quick release 5. Not being able to sell old models at discount 6. Hushing down above challenges 7. “German” product but made in China I think Germany gotta be ashamed of Core. I see expensive and troublesome product but engineerin...

Re: Ozone alpha

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...

Re: Ozone alpha

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 ... ... The Peak4 will be simila...
