Gin Kites single skin


Gin Kites are about to release a single skin kite:

From the picture it looks quite like a Peak, but with two layers at the wing tips. It will be interesting to see how they compare. I hear Ozone will also release a new snowkite this winter, I wonder if that will singe skin as well.

Cool :cool: though I don't believe Gin has had any formal distribution channel in the States for many years now :(

Looks good.

Not sure on the new Ozone Snowkite. I haven't heard anything about a new snow-specific wing. There is a new kite in the inventory but it's not snow specific. I've been toying around with it a bit but haven't had a chance to ride with it yet.

That kite looks awesome but $1700 for a 9m is pretty steep. I guess that's why I haven't bought a new kite in many years now.
