F-One has a long history as a company focused on simple and clean product lines with excellent feel and performance. The Bandit has been the milestone of the F-One product family and has always been designed with the intention of putting it in the center of freeride category, maximizing its balance between multiple disciplines and attempting to create one of the largest spectrums of use with a single kite. Straddling the needs of surfing, generalist freeride and big air/mega looping freeride with one quiver of kites works for most people, but for other more niche focused kiteboarders the ‘one kite does it all’ approach forces implicit compromises between performance values.

Stable and easy to handle, the SHADOW is designed to surf any kinds of waves and conditions. It benefits from a very well balanced and really intuitive shape.

Sizes: 5’4 & 5’6
Available in 5 sizes 5’2, 5’4, 5’6, 5’8 & 5’10 and 3 x constructions (Pro Carbon, Pro Flex & Pro Bamboo). Different graphics per construction, and carbon models are colored by size. The Pro Bamboo is also available in a Foil Convertible version with twin tracks in sizes 5’6, 5’8 & 5’10

The TRAX has a long heritage and is one of F-One’s most popular twin tips. It is the ultimate freeride and freestyle board with a unique feeling on the water, offering both speed and comfort with fantastic glide. The HRD Rail plays a significant role in the way the board performs, and it sets it apart from everything else out there.
After an intense week of racing with a strong fleet of local, national and international racers, among them F-One team racers Connor Bainbridge, Joey Pasquali, Seth Besse and Noah Runciman (U19), we are thrilled to report that Conno finished on the podium of the Hydrofoil Pro Tour / Formula Kite Event hosted by St Francis Yacht Club at Crissy Field Beach.

But something 100% hard was not an option: Our […]
Overall, the Slice is a board that works great for someone looking for a little bit smaller of a template in a MPH cutoff shape. It goes upwind really well with a super comfortable yet fast feel while yielding fun but user-friendly control in the waves and solid strapless freestyle performance. Available in 5’1 & 5’3 sizes for 2019.
