The Delta C Shape design, the revolutionary patent owned by F-ONE, is the base of the Bandits development. With 5 best-seller editions, the decision to continue with the Delta shape is an obvious one, and is known to be a great long-term option. This shape guarantees an easy relaunch with the auto-relaunch feature and offers great performance in all kiteboarding disciplines. In conjunction with the EVO bridal system, which allows a 5th line safety system but without any of the inconveniences, the design is a definite winner. Compared to other kite shapes with great depower, the Bandit’s bar dumps...

INNOVATION What is our goal? What should we improve? These are the first questions that we usually ask ourselves when working on the R&D of a new kite. It normally doesn’t take us much time to get feedback from our riders and customers, but with the Bandit 5, the comments were getting rarer and rarer since its design is already near perfect and it has impressive flying qualities in every aspect. This is great, but is also means that only a few hints of solutions were brought to us. But since we have such a strong desire to improve our product, we did our own analysis of what the improvements should...

Strap size Probably the most comfortable combo Strap / Pad on the market. The pads are in general difficult to design because they must fit all types of feet. They must ensure the best connection with your board to have the best feel possible while riding, and absorb the impacts. With the straps, the pads must lock your feet in the ideal position. To obtain the highest quality pads, we have chosen an injected process that permits various forms and densities. A unique process that allow to generate all possible forms while picking the best EVA foam density. Because a pad, it’s those two essential...

The ACID is the New School Freestyle board of our range. To meet the requirements of today’s freestyle, our engineers have altered the choice of materials: a new type of wood is used for its core to enhance the impact zones and better absorb shocks while maintaining an optimum weight. Combining the twist control to a double concave and V bottom gives the board all the qualities to be expected of a great freestyle board: flex, pop, control and strength. We have reduced the V to better control the speed. The ACID is at its best for low kite moves and is forgiving during landing, even on non-flat...
