DIABLO V.2

The story of the DIABLO is first of all a men story. When we decided to start the foil kite program it was only because we were able to collaborate with a state of the art designer and factory from the paragliding industry, namely Mr Gin SEOK SONG. GIN GLIDERS PARAGLIDING is a leading brand of high end and competition paragliders. The DIABLO was designed by Gin SEOK SONG and then tested and developed by two previous paragliding world champions: GIN test pilot Hans BOLLINGER and the F-ONE designer Robert GRAHAM. They used advanced design and manufacturing technologies that have been acquired through many years of paragliding. The experience of this collaboration has enabled us to quickly build a kite that has already placed F-ONE team riders on the podium of international competitions. The collaboration between F-ONE and GIN GLIDERS was natural because both the companies and the founders GIN SEOK SONG and Raphael SALLES are driven by the same passion. Passion for their respective sport as well as for high end products and innovation. The DIABLO was a success right from the first few races as Maxime NOCHER was present on the podium with impressive multiple 1st places. The performances were of course there but the entire team was also focused on the other features that the kite must also have: - Quality: the choice of the fabrics, the construction, and the high quality controls are direct descendants from high end paraglider production. The need for control is greater for foil kites because the body and bridles are more complicated and demand high precision. - Stability and ease of use: our philosophy is not only to target high performance but also to have a kite that is easy to use for everyone. - Bar feeling: for some riders getting into foil kiting it is a new experience so we wanted to have a bar feeling as close as what they are used to having with inflatable kites. - Handling and turning: the way the kite turns and the bar pressures during the turn are key positive aspects of the DIABLO. - Look: because a high end product should also be beautiful the DIABLO has an incredibly majestic presence in the sky. The DIABLO burst onto the scene with a vengeance last year, winning races and praise from everyone who flew it. For 2017, the DIABLO V.2. goes even further, it is now the ultimate racing weapon. The goal was to expand the wind range, raise the efficiency of the kite and to improve the upwind angle without losing any performance. Our designers achieved this by increasing the aspect ratio, as well as the number of cells. These developments all boost the kites speed, power generation and its angle in the wind window. It also creates a more accurate profile across the span of the kite, which further enhances lift, stability and performance. The bridle has also been totally redesigned for 2017 to deal with the new higher aspect ratio. To reduce turbulent flow as the air leaves the profile of the kite some mini ribs have been added to the trailing edge, decreasing the drag and enhancing the airflow. The construction retains the lighter fabric on the underside of the kite, which was introduced last year. This method increases the responsiveness of the kite and also helps the DIABLO V.2. outperform its rivals on the downwind legs of the racecourse. The DIABLO V.2. is a finely tuned, turbocharged, thoroughbred version of its predecessor, taking an already winning formula and developing it even further. Featuring top of the range performance while remaining stable and responsive The DIABLO V.2. is the very epitome of a racing wing and will take you straight to the top of the podium, just like it does for Maxime NOCHER.

The heart of the MONOLITH bar is made directly from a 6061 Aluminum block. The Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machined method is used to shape the bar in one unique monolith piece.

This new fabrication method is used in conjunction with the 6061 Aluminum, an alloy charged with magnesium and Silicium. This material is extremely resistant and is used in the Air and Space industry. In addition to its strength, this material offers excellent resilience and great resistance to corrosion.

The new MONOLITH bar benefits from a new anodizing process that reinforces the external structure of the bar and blocks all corrosion.
For increased safety and comfort, the bar ends are molded with a soft material. The anti-sliding thermoformed grip has also a double EVA layeron top of the bar.
