  • Outstanding upwind efficiency.
  • Optimized effortless bar feeling offering a clear and precise steering feedback.
  • Exceptional wind range, the new Bandit is remarkably effective from low to high wind.
  • Reduced lateral pull, the quest for a ride without drag continues and has reached new levels.
  • Power and generous lift for sensational kiteloops and big air boosts.
  • Impressive stability for a comfortable and safe feeling, no matter the conditions.

The F One Bandit has long been a favourite of ours and among our instructors. Initially released in 2008 after the Tribal and Tribal 2 kites (we had them too and they were great!), the early Bandits were power houses with not much refinement, long easily tangled bridles and lots of power. Over the years they’ve become much more streamlined, lighter, faster, more agile and far better all round kites. For a long time the Bandit has been the benchmark for all freeride kites and plenty of other big brands have looked to create a similar ‘one kite does all’ product, such as Duotone with their Evo.

In 2020 the Bandit and Bandit S were split to allow the S to be more aimed towards surf and the Bandit to be freeride and big air. We found the 2020 Bandit to be a bit higher performance than we have seen in previous years and it was a bit of a handful for beginners. The 2021 has been given better overall stability without losing the performance that the 2020 model had, so it’s become accessible to all again.

In early testing we’ve found it to be a great kite with a bit more low end power than before and tonnes of lift for jumps. It can still be used on a surfboard but the S excels in this department.

The colours has been simplified too with less choice but still very smart. We still think this is one of if not the best all round kite available!

f-one bandit 2021

The BANDIT 2021 is extremely pleasing to fly whilst having a sporty feeling. Its behaviour is direct and reactive as well as stable, smooth and homogenous. Very light to fly yet has a feedback incredibly direct. The kite consistently reacts to your demand, and you always know where it sits in the window. The turning of the BANDIT is quick and precise and remains totally controllable when depowered.

The smaller sizes 7 to 10 m are configured for more overpowered winds and big air where you can play with those crazy kiteloops and tricks. The bigger sizes 11 to 14 m offer incredible control and freeride stability. Key to this new concept is the updated spider 4 or 5 points bridle set up, which is different to the classic 4 point bridles on the Bandit S. The new bridle helps keep the profile arc of the kite stable even in extreme overpowered conditions.

The larger sizes of the Bandit feature all the excellent characteristics of the smaller sizes, but the design profiles and arcs have been tweaked to offer even more low-end wind range and lightness.

The jumping potential of this year’s model is absolutely insane. Offering explosive vertical lift the kite has plenty of float to chuck in some boards off or old school moves. Loops are fast and you will always find the line tension and pull you’re looking for. Just pull on the bar and the BANDIT 2021 will generate power, fantastic kiteloops sensations and super smooth landings with no stalling. F-One has reached new levels of stability making riding comfortable and safe no matter the conditions. Also managed to get a way more homogenous experience from low to high wind range with each size of the range. It crosses over to disciplines like foiling and even wave riding super well. After spending countless hours testing and developing prototypes, F-One are proud to release the new and improved 2021 BANDIT.

Whether you are looking to send it, freeride for hours, or explore the waves, this kite will exceed all expectations.

F-One Delta C Shape

Delta C-Shape

DELTA C-SHAPE is a patented design used by F-ONE on all kites for the past 12 years.

This shape was the result of a design research towards maximum optimization of the aerodynamic performances of the kite and of its depower. It gives the possibility to fit more canopy area in the middle sections to create more projected area. The C Shape makes sure the kite remains responsive and fluid.

DELTA C-SHAPE technology design offers unmatched stability and steering response when fully de-powered, with the possibility of connecting the front lines higher on the leading edge of the kite.

Auto Relaunch

Once the kite is sitting with the leading edge flat on the water its C-Shape associated with the Delta Pivot allows the kite to automatically roll over onto one wing tip. The kite will then glide towards the edge of the window, ready for quick and easy water re-launch.
F-One Force Frame

Force Frame

Kites with extended de-power ranges sustain more pressure across the canopy as they experience an increased frequency of use over a wider wind range.

Consequently F-ONE has developed a completely new structure for the Bandit, offering optimized durability with no additional weight gain. The FORCE FRAME is a solid Dacron structure consisting of the leading edge, the trailing edge and the struts. This high strength skeleton structure is then covered with lightweight Spy material in the least vulnerable areas.

F-ONE Bandit XV 2022 available this Autumn!

Our favourite all rounder is back after going through a few changes over the past couple of years. From a dedicated wave kite / all rounder to more of a dedicated big air kite in 2020, it’s now settled somewhere in the middle which makes it the ultimate weapon if you’re into various disciplines.

Very few kites are able to excel in numerous disciplines but the Bandit genuinely is one of the best available across almost of all them. It boosts very well, has good hangtime, drifts nicely on waves, foils efficiently and is easy to use whether in the hands of a total beginner or pro. It has a good feeling through the bar due to it’s stability and structural integrity which is confidence inspiring for anyone using it.

Effortless upwind abilitiesF-ONE Bandit XV 2022

F-One BANDIT XV 2022 PRESENTATION

The BANDIT is incredibly stable in the air, no matter what the wind is doing. Its fantastic control allows you to perform to a high level in all areas. The kite translates gusts into forward pull.

Improve your big air moves with the new BANDIT. The kite loop is quicker this year with a tighter turning radius, allowing you to dial in as much or as little intensity as you might want. You get a total support from your kite, therefore the landings are softer as you get that extra lift before you land.

The impressive instant steering response offers precision flying with the best balance between ease of input and feedback impulses from the kite. This results into a very linear feel with zero stalling. Experience the fabulous BANDIT feeling of the steering and the sheeting working so beautifully together.

The BANDIT XV offers improved hang time, pure jump height and vertical boost. It requires fewer skills and efforts to load the kite before sending it.

Going upwind is easy and comfortable, it will charge you back upwind after trying new tricks and big jumps!

Thanks to its legendary Delta C-Shape, the only still patented kite design, the kite offers incomparable bar feeling, the best relaunching ability and exceptional stability.

The leading edge has been redesigned with one more segment and a new diameter for optimum maneuverability and stability.

The new double vertical panel around the trailing edge, the double canopy trailing edge and the lighter Dacron between S1 and S2 offer the sleekest profile for the most stable flight.

Reinforcement and the construction overall has been improved to gain even more control.

Most Wanted for 15 years and still running, the BANDIT never fails to impress.

SPIDER BRIDLE

We have worked on a bridal system for the new BANDIT 2021. The Spider bridle is a multi point of connection well dispatched along the leading edge which offers a better control of the arc of the kite during the flight. The stability in all wind conditions is very impressive and pushes the high wind range to incredible limits.

TEIJIN 130G DACRON RIPSTOP

We have built our kites for 20 years in the most state-of-the-art cloth from Teijin’s factory in Japan.
They have developed the best technologies and quality material for our kites over the years. Teijin has worked on a few major developments with the double Ripstop on the canopy cloth and durability treatments.

The kite industry was lacking choice of cloth density. We could build kites with a 52 gr per square meter for the canopy and about 160 gr for the leading edge, strut and reinforcements. Having only two choices was not easy because on some parts the 52 gr was too light and the 160 gr too heavy.
After developments and tests with Teijin we can now use a new Dacron 130 gr double Ripstop on our 2020 kites.

By using that new 130 gr cloth, we have saved weight while keeping an excellent strength. The new BANDIT 2021 is more reactive and of course feels lighter, which is particularly important for the bigger sizes, in the light wind or for the turning speed during kiteloops.

F-One Bandit S2 2021

Now with FREE 1 hour private lesson or Tricktionary (the ultimate progression book!) if you’re further afield.

The new F-One Bandit S2 is here! This is the second edition of the BANDIT S, with major improvements to take wave riding, strapless freestyle or even foiling to the next level.

Take a look at our special discounted F-one Bandit package with kite, board, bar & lines, pump & leash HERE

  • Exceptional stability and control
  • Total direct control of the steering anywhere on the bar throw
  • Firm, precise and ultra-light bar pressure.
  • Super smooth power delivery
  • Homogenous traction and amazing agility
  • Extended wind range

This year the Bandit S comes with the improved profile skin tension as well as the trailing edge construction and design. A new vertical panel layout with its warp line orientation at the back of the profile. New trailing edge design with our 135gr Dacron. All of this improved a lot the control of the profile and the kite’s weight.
This new profile offers a very impressive stability and responsiveness which are essential features for wave riding. The traction and the control of the F-One Bandit S2 is so homogenous in any wind condition and everywhere in the window. The BANDIT allows to ride on impulse, which makes your ride more fluid.

Besides that work on the profile and stability, we have modified the outline of the Bandit S2. The centre strut is now shorter and the wing tips wider. The handling is now more reactive and the S2 is following closely your board’s turns.
Every aspects of the design have been improved and the profile has been rethought. The leading edge has one more segment on the centre to set an even more clean C shape curve. We have removed one segment on the tips to make them sleeker.

The bar feeling has been tweaked to be even lighter and more precise to react instantly to your input.
When you are wavering and riding strapless you are constantly using the bar to adjust the power and the direction of your kite. That connection with your kite is essential and we always use the term: “bar feeling” but it is a lot more than this.
While working on the design of the new F-One BANDIT S2 we have made major improvements on the steering, especially when sheeting out. Most of the time, when depowered, you are losing the back lines tension and so the steering control. It’s particularly noticeable in on-shore conditions where your kite need to change direction to follow each of your turn.

f-one bandit

Power delivery feels exceptionally linear and progressive, with smooth depower that is highly intuitive allowing you to have a perfect balance and to focus on your surfing or tricks. It never surges in power if you send it back quickly through the window.
The control and stability in overpowered conditions along with its impressive vertical lift is making as well the S2 a fantastic kite for strapless freestyle!

The BANDIT S2 is reactive, light and drivey making it the ideal kite for foiling. The stability of the S during the drift is a great help on a foil especially when your lines are slack during turns or carves.

The BANDIT S2 will please all the strapless riders out there. Highly responsive, intuitive and capable of super drift, enjoy the easy to fly nature of the kite and its impeccable handling in all conditions!

F-One Strike Surf Wing

F-One Strike

 

F-ONE brings breakthrough design with the brand new STRIKE wing and its innovative concept.
Wingfoiling is now a real sport.

With more than 40 years of experience in the wind powered watersports such as windsurfing and kiteboarding, F-ONE has developed a real passion for wingfoiling over the last two years. Their long history has enabled huge improvements in the sport resulting in the STRIKE’s creation.
In the search for thrill and adrenaline, F-One have been looking to make a wing which not only will keep the heritage of the SWING in terms of lightness and comfort but which will be incredibly stable and offering great performances as well as huge wind range.

After using the F One Swing for the past year the change of to the F One Strike is pretty dramatic! It’s a completely different kettle of fish which takes some getting used to. It’s faster, more efficient and far better upwind but it does need a bit more wind to get riding being higher aspect and less grunty. There’s just the 2 handles on the strut in the optimal position which actually makes it easier to use. Overall it’s a great improvement but we’d still recommend the Swing for beginner or intermediate level or those into die hard wave riding due to it’s stability.

Features

  • Impressive stability and balance
  • Easy planning and performances
  • Extra comfortable and light
  • Huge wind range
  • Incredible upwind abilities
  • Fantastic jumping capabilities
  • Light and stable for perfect freefly sensations

Construction

From light to high winds, you will discover the full potential of the F-ONE STRIKE Wing. Thanks to its unique design and construction, the sensations on the water are unique.
The work done on the control of the deformation of the wing offers more power, fantastic upwind performances, stability and control. This feeling of control will allow you to push the STRIKE into jumps and air rotations.
You are in total comfort at all time, the STRIKE’s has the perfect traction balance between your two arms. The handles are perfectly placed, and you won’t suffer from too much pull on your back arm on the long legs. Going upwind has never been so efficient.
The impressive stability of the STRIKE will make you forget about it when in freefly surfing wind swells.

The F-ONE STRIKE Wing design is completely new with many innovations.
The vertical panel layouts towards the trailing edge and the skin tension help control the cloth deformation and improve the overall profile.
The leading edge has extra segments for a better control of the dihedral shape and its diameter has been optimized.
The curvy but straight on the tail center strut design helps for an even better control of the deformation.
Discover amazing sensations and transform your ride.

F-One Strike CWC Surf Wing Light Wind

F-One Strike CWC Light Wind Wing

 

F-ONE STRIKE CWC brings another breakthrough design and offers unique sensations in light wind conditions.
Nearly two years after the release of the first SWING, F-ONE have found the ultimate way to add surface to the wing without compromising lightness and performances. The new patented Compact Wing Concept allows adding more surface into a given wingspan. They have added 2 struts to the existing one offering the most compact shape on the market for the bigger sizes.

The control of the leading edge’s length offer more rigidity in the canopy and the trailing edge is completely controlled, adding performances. Because touching the water while riding is one of the big sizes issue, F-ONE have also worked on the tips profile. They naturally stay away from the water surface. If they do hit the water, their design allow them to glide over and not stop you as it would. This allows you to ride with your hands at a normal height and not with your arms above your head.

This new geometry brings great power with ease of use and therefore a super light feel with less wingspan. The wing is more maneuverable, easier to flip around when on the water. Pumping is super easy and gets you planning in no time as the wing tips don’t touch the water when you bend your arms. This unique compactness allows a very comfortable ride with big wing sizes. Light wind riding will have never been so performing.

 

Features

  • Revolutionary compact shape
  • Light wind weapon
  • Unique patented geometry
  • Touch Control
  • Fantastic Maneuverability

TEIJIN 130G DACRON RIPSTOP
F-ONE have built their kites for 20 years in the most state-of-the-art cloth from Teijin’s factory in Japan.
They have developed the best technologies and quality material for the kites over the years. Teijin has worked on a few major developments with the double Ripstop on the canopy cloth and durability treatments.

After developments and tests with Teijin they can now use a new Dacron 130 gr double Ripstop on the 2020 kites.
By using that new 130 gr cloth, F-ONE have saved weight while keeping an excellent strength. The new BANDIT 2021 is more reactive and of course feels lighter, which is particularly important for the bigger sizes, in the light wind or for the turning speed during kiteloops.

KEVLAR REINFORMENT ON LEADING EDGE
Most seams on the leading edge are protected with an abrasion-resistant Kevlar fabric to prevent the seams from deteriorating when the kite’s profile is subjected to aggressive ground friction.

F-One Swing V2 Surf Wing

F-One Swing V2

 

The original feeling of the F-One SWING has been greatly improved. Learn wingfoiling faster with the SWING V2. This brand new wing offers more lightness and comfort while being very accessible as well as performing for all riders!

We’ve used the Swing for the past year and there have been some noticeably good enhancements to the wing. The trailing edge is tighter so it vibrates less in strong winds and the leading edge is narrower making upwind riding easier. The biggest improvement is how stiff the Swing now it making pumping when underpowered so much more efficient.

The Swing shouldn’t be overlooked as an entry level wing because it’s not. It’s a lot more powerful and stable than the Strike and for anyone in the first season or 2 then it’s a much better overall choice than the Strike.

Offering pure enjoyment is at the heart of this new SWING’s design. It is not a matter of pure performances nor the jumps’ height. It has been designed to offer the lightest feeling possible and generating efficient power to allow foiling in all conditions with maximum stability and ease of use.

The power’s distribution has been improved and is perfectly balanced in order to save arms fatigue.
The instant power generated by the wing as well as its neutral balance, makes it a fantastic wing for all riders no matter their level and ways to practice. It has been designed to offer a flex which greatly improves the comfort. The F-ONE SWING V2 is a fantastic light wind wave riding wing.

F-One created the most accessible set up on the market. Along with ROCKET AIR and GRAVITY FCT, you can enjoy your first flights in the best conditions.

Features

  • The SWING has been known for its incredible lightness. The V2 comes back with an even lighter feel.
  • Perfectly balanced
  • Easy planning and upwind performances
  • Maximum comfort and accessibility

Construction

Its new design benefits from the STRIKE’s innovations. Its stability and durability have been improved thanks to its vertical panel orientation along the trailing edge inspired by the STRIKE. F-One has used their well-known light weight and high quality materials as well as the exclusive design to get a super sleek canopy. They also made the choice not to add the unnecessary accessories to keep the weight as low as possible.

The SWING V2 has 2 comfortable handles located in the crucial spots to allow the rider to have the perfect balance and there again to lower the overall weight of the wing. They have been optimized to offer ease of use in transitions and the best tuning. Their excellent feel encourage longer sessions.

Its remarkable low weight will make you forget about it when in free fly mode and when riding swell. The F-ONE SWING V2 has improved all of its original features: simplicity, comfort and stability. Riding in the low end will have never been so enjoyable and is exceptionally intuitive.

Sizes

  • The SWING V2 is available is 2.4, 2.8, 3.5, 4.2, 5 and 5.5 m to suit all needs.
  • Each wing surface covers a 15 knots wind range. It is unique and allows the riders to ride in a 30 knots wind range with only 2 wings.
  • Specifically designed for kids and lightweight riders, the 2.4 is the ideal wing to learn and enjoy the sport!

  • Safety: Simple and reliable push away safety system. Minimal force needed to trigger the release and very easy to re build

Monolith bar construction

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 Silicon. This material is extremely resistant and is used in the Air and Space industry. In addition to its strength, this material offers excellent resilience and great resistance to corrosion.

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

Monolith bar construction

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 Silicon. This material is extremely resistant and is used in the Air and Space industry. In addition to its strength, this material offers excellent resilience and great resistance to corrosion.

F-One Platinum 3 Bindings 2021

F-one Platinum 3 Bindings 2021

2021 F-One Platinum 3 Bindings are able to fit all types of feet whilst ensuring the best connection with your board. The pad offers the most amazing feel while riding, and absorb the impacts. The straps lock your feet to the pad in the ideal position.

To obtain the highest quality pads, F-one has chosen an injected process that permits various forms and densities and created a dual-density pad for an optimized comfort: the edge areas are denser for a better support while the foot bed areas are softer for more comfort. Using a unique process that allows generating all possible forms while picking the best EVA foam density.

Because a pad is those two essential things: a form and a foam. The F-ONE strap is fully adjustable to the size and shape of the foot. This year the quality of the strap was improved also, which is now filled with gel foam for a fantastic comfort. Its neoprene coating is combined with a base in injected plastic.

There are three tuning axes to set the 2021 F-one PLATINUM 3 BINDINGS on the board for an optimum riding position:

  • Angle: from 0° to 24°, you can select the foot angle that fits you the best.
  • Foot Position: you can slide the F-one PLATINUM 3 BINDINGS forth or back on the board to place your feet at the right distance from the edge of the board.
  • Stance: all F-ONE boards offer three settings for the spacing of your feet.

Three types of controls depending on the size of your feet for an amazing comfort:

  • Length
  • Width
  • Height

A refined construction:

  • Dual-density pad for an optimised comfort:the edge areas are denser for a better support while the foot bed areas are softer for more comfort
  • Combination of a fine anti-slip texture with a layer of thermoformed EVA to offer a perfect grip.
  •  Assembly based on a light but solid base plate.
  • The PLATINUM 3 BINDINGS form a block which can be positioned and fastened easily on the boards (requiring only two screws). They can also be transported easily without losing your finely tuned setup.

An ergonomic pad shape:

  • Optimized slope: the whole pad is canted towards the inside of the board to keep the feet perpendicular to the legs.
  • Dedicated grab ridge in toe area.
  • Specific support area under the foot arch.
  • Wide heel area to let you angle your foot as you feel like depending on your riding.
  • Lateral comfort flanges to protect your feet from the plastic straplocks.

F-One Trax ESL

F-One Trax ESL 2019 & 2020

The F-One Trax ESL is all about having fun on the water.

This new board is based on the long TRAX heritage and implements some of the latest thinking developed on the WTF?! Offering a unique blend of comfort, performances and ease of ride.

  • Amazing Glide
  • Easy Performances
  • Super smooth riding
  • Maximum Comfort and pop with Bi-axial Construction

DESIGN

The general rocker is moderate to ensure the board offers early planing and keeps the legendary glide which is the true signature of the TRAX.
The rocker line is split into three distinct stages with a flatter section in the center, which is key to achieve a good upwind angle and good tracking on the water. The transition between the middle section and the tips was inspired by the WTF?! rocker to offer really good pop.

The bottom shape features a deep double concave and some tip channels. Both are quite efficient at providing first class grip and control to the board but the double concave really is the main driver behind the overall comfort of the board and its stability at all times.

HRD CONSTRUCTION

The rails are inspired by the HRD, with taller sections in the feet area for some better lift and balance, and they were kept thin everywhere else to get an easy grip.

The deck shape is stripped down for more simplicity and better contact between the bindings and the board. The 3D work in the middle section, another heritage of the TRAX, helps keeping the center of the board with a solid feel for more accuracy and control when riding.

BEHAVIOUR

On the water the board impresses by how smooth it is to ride. Everything feels easy and totally intuitive. Perfect glide, solid pop and easy landing characterize this well-balanced shape.

PERFORMANCE

The TRAX ESL is available in two sizes 134x40cm and 135x42cm, which should fit a large range of users. The proportions of the shape are inspired by the latest freestyle developments whilst the dimensions are kept more manageable.

All boards come equipped with UNIBox 50m fins, which offer better speed and improved glide thanks to their thinner profile. The Trax can fit straps and pads from many brands, take a look at them all here
