retails for somewhere around 80$ or so......
if all goes well mine should be shipping soon....
a retailer in Canada has an order coming that at least one shift is on....
email me and i can provide more details.....

other than that it looks cool...and i am certain it will be a blast to fly like the Bird'x.....especially since it looks so funky....

The size :-)1.0 is more square than 1.5, so
better in indoor. 1.5 get the same profil like "Eddy" so better in single
line static, the design is really nice for both (I like, of course
:-)
It's still surprising to see a Shift in the sky,
the design is really simple and effective.

x2 on a review.  I have to say it looks to be on my want list.  I'd be really interested in hearing how it flies compared to the BirdX (also on my want list; which is getting rather long thanks to this site).

The shift 1.0, skate and aerobe all seem to be pretty tempting SLK's.
With the shift looking like the fonzie  Cool of the bunch.

But does anyone have any idea what the heck R-sky is trying to say on their website, the translation is well......WEIRD Huh to say the least.

'Similarly, the shift in its two proposed versions will not leave indifferent lovers of beautiful objects and forms simple and pure.'  Cheesy Cheesy Cheesy

I'm lovin it...

Probably something like: The Shift, in its two proposed versions will please those who love art for it's simplicity and purity.

interesting....
there is confusion on lots of people's part (even dealers) about the difference between a Shift 1.0 and a 1.5.....the 1.0 is indoors/xUL...the 1.5 is light winds up and will (supposedly) fly stable........

super simple design....neat shape......
