2017 F-One Bandit KITES
This is a special year for F-One! 2017 marks 10 years of development for the Bandit with high levels of requirements! This year, the entire team along with Robert Graham, their designer, Micka Fernandez and Raphael Salles, the experienced developers and testers, have worked hard to propose an even more complete 2017 kite: 200 test days on the water, 70 prototypes and 6,000 km of navigation.
A kite model that remains a best seller for so long is such a rare feat. It’s the result of long and hard work that respects a very precise design program with a very wide array of performance and flying abilities. The complete the tests and checks that F-One performs on every single prototype of each collection is truly uncompromising, therefore pushing the kites to their maximum.
Year after year, F-One improves some aspects while maintaining the qualities previously acquired. With a new squarer outline, less lateral pull for a new level of comfort and a smooth, homogeneous but powerful traction, the Bandit respects its design brief. Speed and acceleration are under control while the Bandit keeps an efficient and reassuring stability. Light and maneuverable, hang time has also been improved for more facility.
