Featured on all the 2016 SUP range the innovative and multifunction handle developed by F-ONE. This handle really makes a difference in terms of comfort and ease of use. You’re going to be itching to carry your sup too far out destinations with how comfortable the 2016 Smart Handle really is!

1 – Decompression valve
2 – Multifunction tool compartment
3 – Recessed volume
4 – Screwdriver head
5 – Allen key

More comfortable with advanced ergonomics, it is completely recessed and makes it easier to carry the SUP. The new handle helps a lot to grab the boards easily when lying flat on the ground or on the water.F_ONE_SUP_construction_smart_handle_profil_585_0

A groove has been added onto the thread of the valve so that you only have to unscrew by a few turns to let the air out. No need to unscrew it completely and therefore no risk to lose it.

The handle already includes the screw for the decompression valve (1).
A specific multifunction tool has been created and fits neatly into the handle (2).

The tool can be opened in two parts to reveal an Allen key which can be used to easily fit all your F-ONE SUP fins (US or FUTURES® Box) without looking everywhere to find a tool.

The top part of the tool was designed to serve as a screwdriver to open or close the decompression valve.

To prevent from oversight and to make sure the decompression valve is always closed when the SUP is in the water, a reminder has been included: you cannot fit the tool back into its place nor can you carry the board if you haven’t closed the decompression valve.

Furthermore, the tool finds itself clipped on in this position. This was made to ensure the board can be transported without losing the tool. You therefore don’t have to look for the last place where you left the tool and can be sure that anyone grabbing your board will notice that the valve is not shut.
