incredibly stable in the air
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. You get a total support from your kite, therefore the landings are softer as you get that extra lift before you land. 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.

2022 F-ONE LINXBAR 4 lines
The LINX Bar is our control system, a dual adjustable length bar that comes in two sizes (38/45cm and 45/52cm). It perfectly blends lower weight and simplicity with excellent comfort and function.
- Adjustable bar length
- New Depower sheath to increase durability
- New automatic lifeline swivel
- Intuitive and super precise depower system
- Superior functionality
The bar itself is small in diameter with a comfortable grip making it forgiving on the hands. The grip has a rubbery feel with a fine texture and feels firm underneath and a bit more cushy on the top where your fingers wrap around the bar.
The integrated floats at the bar ends house the mechanism to adjust the size of your bar. Simply pull down the tag under the bar, rotate the insert and your bar size is changed. You will also find the possibility to adjust your back lines length.
It features a lifeline now placed into a new rectangular depower sheath for more durability. This new feature prevents the centerline from rubbing against the aluminium tube and will not rub against the user’s fingers.
The above the bar stainless steal cleat to adjust the power has been updated for more simplicity, and the depower system is now thinner and therefore more precise.
The LINX bar offers the option to switch between a low and high V (high V for the BANDIT/BANDIT S/BULLIT and low V for the FURTIVE/BREEZE/ONE).
An additional float is placed above the depower system; this is to maintain positive buoyancy if you become disconnected from your bar.
The bar’s color-coding is very clear, with orange on the left and dark blue on the right.
The lines end in loops and are being attached to the bridles pigtails.
The quick release features a built-in manual swivel above the push to untwist your lines. The new minimalist below the bar lifeline swivel is now made of a plastic stud and a stainless steel ring on which you hang the leash. It rotates easily and automatically untwists your lifeline.
F-ONE Trax HRD Carbon 2022
The F-ONE TRAX is one of the most popular Twin-Tip on the market. It is a versatile board that excels in terms of speed, comfort and glide. In its carbon version, the TRAX offers an instant feeling of controls at speed and performance.
- Performance freestyle
- Explosive pop
- Exceptional upwind abilities
- Ultra light and responsive
The exclusive HRD rail plays a significant role in its exceptional performances. HRD is a unique feature using a process that allows for the rails of the board to be shaped in 3D. There are three sections to the rail as it runs the length of the board. In the middle of the board, the rail is thin for grip and improved upwind ability, under the feet the rail is inverted and curved like a surfboard rail allowing the board to smoothly track through chop and improving its carving ability. As the rail reaches the tips, it thins out again, allowing superior grip and bite to give excellent pop.
The TRAX Carbon series benefits from a biaxial carbon full layer which drops the weight of the board. It also gives the board extra strength, stiffer ride, and more powerful flex response. Its lightness makes the TRAX very responsive and is an absolute dream once in the air.
On the water, the TRAX HRD Carbon Series offers an instant feeling of speed and performance, the HRD rail eliminates spray and feels very comfortable regardless of the water conditions. The board’s flex has been tuned with the properties of carbon fibre to provide the best pop off the water; the tips are exceedingly responsive and help you when you load up the edge for take-off. When it comes to landings, the wide outline and channelled base combine to smooth things out and allow you to retain control at all times
The board is so popular because it works for such a wide variety of riders, from experts in freestyle to beginners and everyone in between, the TRAX is an excellent choice. Combining early planing, upwind ability and control, there is plenty of performance at your disposal when you need it.
From flat water to harsh chop, the TRAX can handle it. Get ready for a ride like no other !
We have developed a pad which is 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, we have chosen an injected process that permits various forms and densities. We 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. We are 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.
