Since 2015, unbeknown to most, F-One and their head board designer Charles Bertrand have been developing dedicated boards for wheelchair athletes with the help of SitKite godfather Thierry Schmitter. Here is the updated sitkite board collection. F-One is using their know-how and access to technology used on our surf and foilboards collection to improve the previous models. You can download the new specs below.

After 14 years of development of the Bandit we always get the same question: how will you improve it again? Our passion is to improve things and for us even when we go into the validation process, it’s just a step in the evolution process. Every season we choose to work on a specific point that should be improved.

On the chart below, you will find the latest chart to show what screws to use for what foil parts, mast, top mast parts, foot mast, wing, fuselage and stabilizers, as well as Tuttle box screws for the Rocket Air. F-One is using metric M6 screws.
We are proud to present today our newest Kite Collection.
Nothing can stop our passion for development.
Our R&D team has worked relentlessly through troubled times to offer you the best and most comprehensive collection yet.
The Rocket Air range is a line of inflatable board dedicated to foiling sports: Surf-foil, SUP-foil, Wing-foil, Wind-foil and even Kite-foil. Sizes: 4’10, 5’4, 5’10, 6’6, 7’6 & 7’11
The most user-friendly one strut kite on the market today, incredible light wind ability matched with complete ease of use. Feel the BREEZE!
Having the right equipment is key to progression. We see too many wing foilers with the wrong size or board, and foils too. Check out this overview of combo set up you can get from F-One.
Following a successful factory inspection, the following Diablo V5 kites have been approved by the IKA Technical Committee as registered series production equipment for the IKA Formula Kite Class.
