The new BANDIT provides a unique traction . Powerful enought to achieve early planing, the kite seems to self-regulated naturally to pull your effortlessly. What is most surprising is that we have got rid of the lateral pull so that you can ride with less pressure on your back and your legs. Riding upwind is amazingly easy, traction is softer and totally regulated.

The Bar is what links you to the kite so it is therefore an important element to preserve the steeling qualities of a kite. For this 10th BANDIT, we have improved the progressiveness of the bar pressure as you sheet in.

The BANDIT X is an exceptional thrilling device andour motivation to improve it year after year is limitless. It is not the latest, marketing based, trendy kite with fancy but useless accessories. It remains authentic & the fruit of our passion for kitesurfing and R&D.

The F-ONE BREEZE V.1. 2017 is a kite designed to meet specifically for foiling and light wind riding: the BREEZE. Just fly with less than 10 kts of wind. Powerful to enable early planing and stable to prevent from failing down in light winds and let you focus on your riding. Able to depower to keep control as this is crucial for foil riding. Designed with good control of your speed and acceleration and easy to relaunch even in light winds.

The BREEZE is therefore a single strut kite. Aspect ratio is reduced to make the kite more stable and limit both acceleration and speed.

The BREEZE  feels amazingly reassuring thanks to its great stability in a straight line but also during all kinds of maneuvers. When riding the kite seems to reach its maximum speed quite early on and then stops accelerating.

One strut. Easier to get on the plane  thanks to its power , lightweight & maneuverability. Impresive range of use & surprising comfort in the hight range. Super user friendly thanks to its stability. Efficient re-launch abilities, even in the light wind. Great maneuverability for intuitive transitions and a quicker learning process.

In 2014, Alex CAIZERGUES asked us for some custom kites to beat his own speed record of 56.62 kts. F-One therefore worked on a kite with more aspect ratio and 5 struts. Then the foil riders became interested in this kite and immediately wanted to use it.

After two years of development, the furtive is ideal for long-distance racing, speed riding and hang-time sessions.

– Hang Time: it launches you really hih and keeps you up there for long thanks to its lift
– Optimized upwind speed/angle compromise with an unbelievable traction towards the edge of the window
– Unparalleled dynamic stability in flight with accurate bar information
– Maximum power and acceleration thanks to the high aspect ratio and moderate ARC
– Complete control of the profile and distortions thanks to the all new W5 bridle and the 5 struts

The furtive is the kite you need to break records with a twintip, a gun or a foil!

The heart of the MONOLITH bar is made directly from a 6061 Aluminum block. The Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machined method is used to shape the bar in one unique monolith piece.

This new fabrication method is used in conjunction with the 6061 Aluminum, an alloy charged with magnesium and Silicium. This material is extremely resistant and is used in the Air and Space industry. In addition to itsstrength, this material offers excellent resilience and great resistance to corrosion.

The new MONOLITH bar benefits from a new anodizing process that reinforces the external structure of the bar and blocks all corrosion.
For increased safety and comfort, the bar ends are molded with a soft material. The anti-sliding thermoformed grip has also a double EVA layer on top of the bar.

The new MONOLITH bar setup is compatible with the Bandits 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 & 9 and the Breeze.

Since 2014 F-ONE introduced its new PUSH SYSTEM safety release.

The 2016 quick release is provided with more rigid elastics and the upper part has been shortened by one centimeter to achieve a longer depower line.

The new F-ONE safety release can be easily set-up on BANDITS 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7/ 8 / 9, TRUST 2013 / 2014 / 2015, 2016 VOLT ½ and REVOLT 3.

The level of strapless riding has increased so much for both the professionals and also for the average rider.
When riding strapless, any weight loss translates into a direct advantage for the wind to keep the board pressed against your feet. From the very first prototypes, the feedback on the carbon built Mitu was excellent!

We have focused our development work on the technology and materials to offer the best possible construction. This was done following two main criteria:

–  The Weight:  everything has been done to get an extremely light and reliable board. We have decided to use a HD FOAM CARBON COMPOSITE construction with a brushed finish that allows for a lighter weight. This sandwich construction (High Density Foam / Carbon) has been used for several years in our SUP range and allows us to reach an ideal weight/resistance ratio.

–  The Comfort: we have worked specifically on the flex of the board as carbon tends to naturally bring more stiffness. We have selected a 45° bi-axial carbon fabric, to get rid of any longitudinal fibers and to keep the flex of the board.

With its exceptional shape and this HD FOAM CARBON COMPOSITE technology bringing significant weight advantages, the Mitu is transformed and provides incredible sensations.

Everyone is aware that kiteboarding is an expensive sports. We have therefore decided to offer the MITU MONTEIRO pro model surf in 5’6’’ / 5’8’’ / 5’10’’ in its “convertible” version (ie: equipped with a KF-BOX).

The deep concave on the bottom of the board provides great acceleration to lift off easily while the proven rocker and outline of the board make the transitions really easy and progressive when they are done on the water. The large pad designed for strapless riding enable a wide riding stance for maximum comfort and stability.

With its very efficient and all around shape combined with the new construction HD FOAM FLEX COMPOSITE, tough and light, the surf MITU MONTEIRO Convertible is the perfect board to stop worrying about missing a session without loading your quiver.

The SIGNATURE boards are designed for pure surfing with a shape that comes out of a long evolution of our kite surfboards. This year we introduce an utltra lightweight carbon version.

With the CAMEL DECK shape, the volume has been maximized in the middle sections of the boards before fading out towards to tail to keep heel of the rear foot as low as possible for a better control.

The HEEL SHOCK ABSORBER featured on deck makes sure all impacts feel softer for the rider to achieve a smoother ride and increases the board durability.The rail is thick and rounded towards the nose to make the board more forgiving with more stability and support from the front sections.

The bottom shape features a single concave on the front half of the board, evolving further aft into a straight V shape at the fins. The concave provides a smoother ride and a better balance while the V tail ensures the board remains super responsive. Switching from one rail to the other is quick and simple as the board enters the turns with ease, gaining also in maneuverability thanks to its round pin tail.

Benefitting from more volume and length, the 5’10 will fit the larger riders or the larger waves. Being slightly shorter, the 5’8 will let you carve the most radical turns and rollers with a more compact board under your feet.

Compact, stable and responsive the SIGNATURE boards are made for surfing in any kind of waves or conditions, benefiting from their well balanced and really intuitive shape. These boards are able to carve short turns as well as long and fast curves effortlessly.

Compact in design to reduce the wind drag, the top deck of the F-ONE foilboards is concaved to maximize comfort and control. The bottom is particularly shaped and uses a precisely tuned concave with side Vs, combined with a strong nose rocker to soften the impact when the board touches down. The rails are high and inverted to reduce drag when the board meets the water while edging hard upwind.
