Overall, Manera’s Eclipse is a firm and supportive semi-rigid harness that doesn’t pinch or apply force to pressure points. With its low profile outline and super comfy padding, this harness provides just the right stiffness that will appeal to a wide audience of riders with differing skill levels and disciplines.
For us the decision is clear. With water temps hovering in the low to upper 50s, the 5/4/3 X10D does an excellent job of keeping us warm while adding a significant amount of flexibility. This extra stretchy feel encourages you to move and you feel this freedom when suiting up at your car, reaching down to grab some rail or paddling back out at the end of a long but warm session.
Maybe some you have already heard of this ocean accident in the news, a huge container vessel named the ONE APUS that lost more than 1800 containers in the pacific; something of that scale is unheard of. And unfortunately, two of our inbound containers that should have arrived in our warehouse in the next several days were on that vessel. At this time, we don’t know if our containers are lost or if they are still on the vessel and/or intact.
LIAM WHALEY – RED BULL KING OF THE AIR 2021 VIDEO ENTRY
DECEMBER 4, 2020
F-One’s Liam Whaley is stoked for the Red Bull KOTA 2021. He’s been training more than previous years. Recently injured at the latest GKA event in Brazil, he’s going to do everything possible to get come from his knee injury in time to compete.
That was just a matter of time, F-One Team rider Maxime Chabloz just won his first ever World Tour event in Brazil, well deserved Maxime! Not easy to run a kite event during a pandemic but the GKA pullet it off. Liam Whaley suffered an injury and couldn’t finish, we wish him a super fast recovery and hope to see him soon on the tour.
100% owned and run by the same French family since its inception, Manera products are made to brave the worst conditions and abuse. With major changes to the wetsuit line, tweaks to its harness offerings and unique new booties specifically designed for kiters, Manera’s Julien Salles is super excited to share their 2021 collection.
The new MANERA boots come in two models, the MAGMA 5mm and the X10D 3mm. Both are designed in 3D for a perfect fit and with no velcro, which is one of our favorite feature (no more flapping and sticking to your wetsuit when in a bag or a bucket). They are very easy to put on and off and dry very quickly. The grip is also top notch, overall great boots.
This is the perfect accessory to change before and after riding, plus it will get you warm and dry in a minute. Poncho is a widely used product, but we’ve been looking for a warmer, softer, cleaner and greener product.
This new version features a higher collar that protects your neck from the wind, a larger bottom cut to improve freedom of movement and a hood tightening system.
