Air Pirates is stoked to see F-ONE release yet another kite for the line up in 2017. It was hard to see some development on this kite and have to keep all the secrets to ourselves. Well that time is over and now its time to let the 2017 F-One Furtive fly.

2017 will see the release of the tenth edition of the BANDIT! To celebrate this, we have decided to assist it with some other specific kites. These products, which we call “satellites”, are designed to meet some specific demands which are not part of the program of the BANDIT but the BANDIT remains more than ever at the core of our range.
In 2014, Alex CAIZERGUES asked us for some custom kites to beat his own speed record of 56.62 kts. The design brief was to reach a maximum speed by riding over-powered with a 6.5m²
on the speed run with an average wind of 50kts… We have therefore worked on a kite with more aspect ratio and 5 struts.
But during the development, two things happened: – First we were surprised by the enjoyment we had when riding with this kite. This is due to the thrills it provides thanks to its performance (who doesn’t like speed and acceleration…?) but also thanks to its hang-time. – Then the foil riders in search for a long distance weapon became interested in this kite and immediately wanted to use it.

TWIN-TIP RIDING: The kite is stable and the motion is fully under control. Bar feedback is super clear which makes you want to go faster all the time. Get ready, you are going to be willing to over-take anything else on the water! Performance usually comes with jumping abilities. To improve this aspect, we have worked on the bar feeling, its maneuverability when sending the kite to the zenith and its boost during the jumps. The kite lifts you really high and glides very well afterwards. Hang-times records are up for grabs!!
LONG DISTANCE RACING – GUN OR TWIN-TIP: Comfortable and fast, this kite is made for long distance courses and provides you with enough control to regulate your efforts during the long runs. Its flying range provides great tolerance to wind variations, especially in the high range. Going hard upwind feels quite exceptional as the kite gives you the feel of being on an open reach. Its traction is really oriented towards the edge of the window with good support which saves you from pushing too much on the legs or on the back. When reaching or going downwind, this kite will let you ride at full speed, helping the board to wipe away the sea state.
Foil riding: To foil at high speed requires a lot of control and avoiding parasitic movements in the kite, especially wingtip flutter. If the kite moves, then you move too and so does your foil which inevitably results in losing control of your direction and balance. Controlling the distortion of the kite during all flying phases has been the hardest goal to achieve during the development for foil riding but it has clearly benefitted all other disciplines.

The W5 bridle system is totally new. Acting as both a 5th line and a standard bridle, this is a genuine innovation !

We have called it W5 due to its W shaped layout with its central bridle which controls and totally secures the arc of the leading edge, just as a 5th line would do. It enables the kite to depower uniformly to ensure perfect control of the power.
