How to choose your kite?
This Kitesurf guide is made to help you choose your Kite according to your level and program, freestyle, freeride or surf
Our mission at F-One is to provide riders with the most intuitive gear in the market. And by Intuitive we mean that you don’t you to have to think to perform, otherwise than flow with the elements.
For this new Kite collection, the F-one R&D team worked extensively on 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.
Here you have the guide we developed to help you how to choose your F-ONE kite.
Ultimately, your decision will vary depending if you’re freeriding, freestyling, surfing waves, your skill level, and the wind strength.
F-One has been designing kites since the 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 the 2023 collection, the models BANDIT, BANDIT S, TRIGGER and BULLIT all benefited from this concept research.
We focused on three main points: load control paneling and warp tension line, new and original staggered seams, and 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.
