The true partner to the surfboard rider, the F-One BANDIT S3 follows your every move in all control. You can manage the power at any time. The kite never surges in power if you throw the kite in the window, it simply allows you to kite smoothly in the right position and ride by feel. It provides a more subtle ride as well as a constant connection with your board. You are not being pulled away, nor are your trajectories being disturbed.
Its forgiving nature make the BANDIT sits and wait for you next input.
The F-One BANDIT S3 offers fingertip control at all states of trim thanks to its incredibly balanced bar feel which is really comfortable on your arms.
Turning response when sheeted out has been increased, giving you more control over the kite’s position almost at will. The kite’s handling is precise and provides a more subtle ride as well as a constant connection with your board. You are not being pulled away, nor are your trajectories being disturbed.
Power delivery is clean, and although quick, very intuitive in feel to adapt to.
Drifting is on point, your lines go a bit of slack and the BANDIT S3 only takes a second to retention and be ready for your next input, allowing you to keep your kite engaged at all time when surfing.
The leading edge has a new diameter, offering more control.
The new double vertical panel around the trailing edge offer a sleek profile for the most stable flight.
Enjoy the unique flowing nature of the F-One BANDIT S3 which will allow you to draw lines and get some airs in total control.
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.
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.
