Key futures

  • Smooth profile and controlled deformation for incredible flying abilities
  • Absolute control at all time
  • Intuitive traction
  • Amazing turning response when sheeted out
  • Instant depower to forget about your kite when surfing
  • Lighter and even more precise

The BANDIT S4 follows your every move in total control. The kite never surges in power if you throw it 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.

For this version, the R&D team worked intensively on making the entire profile amazingly sleek and implemented original staggered seams on the trailing edge. The seam’s tension line is thus broken, which means the entire profile of the canopy is leveled when the kite is fully powered. We kept the fabric’s orientation towards tension as well. 

Design

On the back of the profile, we have reduced the over tensions thanks to the staggered seams. The two vertical TECHNOFORCE 52 panels have been changed to one, and on sizes 8m² and smaller we developed a new TECHNOFORCE 66 panel.
It is stronger and more resistant on elongation to offer a better control of the profile on smaller sizes for higher winds.

On sizes of 9m² and above, we have kept the TECHNOFORCE 52 to guarantee lightness, as well as the two layers of TECHNOFORCE 52 canopy with staggered seams on the trailing edge.

BANDIT S4 3

This all leads to more efficiency. Overall, this perfectly even canopy profile brings a greater sense of stability without feeling disturbances or the bar moving and leads to incredible performances in the high end.

The struts’ reinforcements are now super sleek as well thanks to the Kevlar strip on the top. This improves the kite’s steering and maneuverability, reduces the aerodynamic disturbances, and decreases the overall weight of the kite once wet.

Our 4 points connections bridle and two pulleys guarantees maneuverability and control in all conditions.

The new, CNC-shaped, anodized aluminum low friction “pulleys” are super lightweight and increase the kite’s reactivity. They also raise the bridle’s resistance to abrasion and its overall durability.

This kite brings an amazing handling and a super crisp steering response that delivers immediate reaction from inputs on the bar. It’s easy to keep the BANDIT S4 ahead of every move and ready for the next input. Power delivery is clean, and although quick, very intuitive in feel to adapt to. 

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

Enjoy the unique flowing nature of the BANDIT S4 which will allow you to draw lines and get some airs in total control.

Technology

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.

Reactor Valve

F-One’s fast double function valve uses the same inflate and deflate mechanism used by SUPs. The wide valve allows for high intake and easy deflating at the push of a button.

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.

TECHNOFORCE Double Ripstop

Technoforce™ Double Ripstop Fabric

TECHNOFORCE of TEIJIN is a high density Polyester fabric with a tear stopping structure using thin and high tension yarn.
