How to choose your kite?
The F-One Kitesurf guide is made to help you choose your Kite according to your level and program, freestyle, freeride or surf
The main mission at F-One R&D is to provide riders with the most fun and intuitive gear in the market. And by Intuitive we mean that you don’t you to have to think about how to perform, otherwise than just flow with the elements.
For this Kite collection, the F-one R&D team worked extensively on our concept of sail engineering to guarantee the best load management and a perfect control of the kite’s shape no matter the conditions.
Each model was specifically engineered, so that riders only has to focus on enjoying the moment, while the kite behaves exactly how you expected it to.
Before you buy any kite you should check the guide we developed to help you how to choose your F-ONE kite.
In the end, your decision should take in consideration if you’re freeriding, freestyling, surfing waves, your skill level, and the wind strength. All of these factors will define which will be the characteristics you’ll need to upgrade your riding skills.
Sail Engineering Concept
F-One has been designing kites since the late year of 1998. Over the years, we have learned that design and fabrics choice are only one of the steps to build a disturbance-free kite or wing.
The key has always been to analyze and understand load tensions, in a way to better control our design and the behavior of the kite or wing while flying. And the way we do that is through our concept of sail engineering.
In our developing collections, the models BANDIT, BANDIT S, TRIGGER and BULLIT all benefited from this concept in our research work to give you the best product possible.
We focused on three main points:
1 – Load control paneling and warp tension line,
2 – New and original staggered seams,
3 – Fabric weight management.
These three points will guarantee a kite profile as smooth as ever for even more efficiency, stability, and sharper performances.
Range presentation & programs
This year we have seven inflatable kites and two Ram air kites in 2023 collection, covering all disciplines, conditions, and wind range.
