F-One Bandit 2018 UNPACKING

As soon as we unpack the kite, we feel the high quality of the materials used. At the first sight, the top construction made us confident that this kite would be durable and strong.


F-One Bandit 2018 PUMPING

The new system introduced by F-one is a game-changer ! The pumping is effortless and fast with the new large fast-inflatation valve. You need the specific F-one pump that is included in the package.

The bar feedback with the new LinxBar has also improved. We noticed a better feeling and a super fast reaction from the kite.

The kite profile didn't undergo through major changes. We still have the canopy profile but a few modifications keep it nice and clean.

The feeling is almost the same as the previous collections with a few changes but it is still reactive and sporty. A perfect compromise for all types of riders : this is why this is the best all-round kite on the market according to us.


F-One Bandit 2018 SIZING

Our kitesurfing school uses different sizes according to the conditions and the level of the rider. For a beginner we would recommend having a 7m for strong winds and an 11m kite for light winds to get some speed going.

If you're advanced you probably know what size you would need as the behaviour is the same as the previous kites.



This kite comes with bright/intense colours just as the other editions. This year's dominant colour is the turquoise. Our personal favorite is he turquoise/pink.
