Catalogue excerpts

For this 9th edition of the BANDIT, we have worked essentially on the two following axes: profile refinement and the swing of the kite to improve the depower. Our designer Robert GRAHAM has smoothed the profile down to the perfection on the whole span of the canopy. The kite is therefore more stable and performing better, with no parasitic movements. We have then modified the way the kite swings around its brid le and depowers, as wel I as the quality of the depowe- red profile. It is now more stable in static position on the beach but also in motion during flight. We have changed the fabric used...

Double Ripstop Fabric density fabric with a tear stopping structure using thin and high tension double yarn. F-ONE PULLEY - Pulley structure is extremely resistant. - Bridle is integrated in the lower part of the pulley, working independently from the bridle, and keep the pulley or vice versa. FLAT SEWING Stronger assembly of the panels: they are now glued and sewn together to make the canopy The BANDIT struts are designed with a vertical cut in order to optimize the strength/diameter ratio. STREAMLINED LEADING The leading edge tips benefit from a reduced diameter, they are streamlined and equipped...

TRUST is a completely new kite easier to use and yet with better performances. It benefits from all the work and progress achieved in terms of construction and shape with its elder sibling the 2015 BANDIT.

With an incredible speed control, the TRUST will make it easier for the riders to carve and dampen the waves and chop. Its exceptional upwind capabilities with flawless stability at 12 o'clock make it the perfect partner. The construction features a new fabric, the well known TECHNOFORCE™doubleripstopfromTEIJIN. Withsupe- enables an unprecedented control of the canopy profiles. The 2015/2016 TRUST also benefits from new reinfor- cements and a more balanced distribution of the ten- sions across the canopy fabric. One Pump valves have been further optimized. Thanks to the new fabric, it was possible...

The story of the DIABLO is first of all a men story. When we decided to start the foil kite pro- gram it was only because we were able to collaborate with a state of the art designer and factory from the paragliding industry, namely Mr Gin SEOK SONG. GIN GLIDERS PARAGLIDING is a leading brand of high end and competition paragliders. The DIABLO was desig- ned by Gin SEOK SONG and then tested and developed by two previous paragliding world champions: GIN test pilot Hans BOLLINGER and the F-ONE designer Robert GRAHAM. They used advanced design and manufactu- ring technologies that have been acquired...

QUICK RELEASE SAFETY SYSTEM Designed to work efficiently even in the most critical situations, it can be triggered under load but also when the lines are slack A stopper at the top holds the kitebar to make sure the system works even when the bar is pushed towards the rider and blocked in the lowest position. Its new push-away system enables to trigger the release with minimal force even under the highest loads (tested vided with more rigid elastics and the upper part has been shortened by one centimeter to achieve a longer depower line. For increased safety and comfort, the bar ends are molded...

016 MM THICK INVERTED RAIL In the feet areas, the rail profile is very thick and inverted which creates two support zones that stop any bouncing effect. It also generates impressive vertical lift that offers early planing and sensational drive. Its sharpened top edge reduces water spray towards the eyes and legs. part rail which delivers insane precision, advanced directional stability, surreal grip and ulti- mate comfort, all yet unknown THIN RAIL 16 MM THICK INVERTED RAIL THIN 8 SHARP RAIL rail in the feet areas IMPROVED STABILITY UNSTABLE BOUNCING EFFECT OTHIN RAIL Towards the tip of the board,...

This construction process which cleverly com- bines the sleek lines and perfect grip of a cap construction rail with the toughness and durabi- lity of an ABS rail. As on a cap construction, the deck comes down towards the rail but finishes on a rounded ABS sidewall providing a shape similar to a surf style rail. DUAL CORE TECHNOLOGY It's the combination of wood and closed-cell foam to achieve a core of ideal stiffness and weight. Wake style boards require higher vo- lume and therefore more thickness. So in order to keep the weight down, closed-cell foam is used as core material in low stress areas...

Our patented UNIBOX system The fin base goes through the board and is secured on top by a thin box. The main inno- vation of this system is that the box does not need to be integrated into the board; rather the board is sandwiched between the RESPONSE thickness and its flex are left untouched. With the UNIBOX system and its asymmetric pro- file, you gain in gliding efficiency and can start planning earlier. It improves the ride comfort as well thanks to the fins flex. The RESPONSE fins are color coded on their base {red and green) to facilitate their assem- bly and respect the asymmetrical profile....
