TKB Light Wind Review: 2020 F-ONE BIG ONE “extreme light wind riding”

29 Apr , 2020  

The Big One is a very specific board which offers the rider the ultimate early planing surface area with super grippy and reliable footing for light wind sessions. The Big One has really solid tracking with a rail that bites into the water on upwind tacks. Its significant bottom shape works with the fins to give you a really locked-in feel that keeps the Big One on track.

“Undoubtedly a collective achievement, it was also a great personal investment. And it’s a special feeling to see such a wide range of products sharing the same design approach and serving so many sports and styles with the experience of foiling as common ground. Our foils have never been so easy, intuitive and rewarding to use. I’m proud of what we’ve done here.”

TKB Review: F-ONE BANDIT-2020 “A truly refined ride, the Bandit performs in all wind conditions”

27 Apr , 2020  

This year the Bandit platform has been divided into two distinctive kite models based on sizes. What was simply the 2019 Bandit is now the Bandit 2020 and the Bandit-S models. The Bandit 2020 is now optimized to perform as a big air freestyle megaloop kite and the Bandit-S is designed to perform as surf kite. F-One had been valiantly attempting to optimize the Bandit for multiple disciplines, but having taken ‘one size fits all’ to the limit, the freestyle big air crowd now gets a dedicated launch platform in the sizes 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14 and 17m

TKB Wing Review: F-One GRAVITY 2200 V2 “recommended for bigger riders”

23 Apr , 2020  

The Gravity series of wings in the 1800 and 2200 sizes are ideal options for the new sport of wingsurfing. Both wings feature a carbon fiber fuselage that bolts together with Torx head bolts for easy assembly and mates with an aluminum mast. The construction brings together an excellent blend between stiffness for crisp performance and robust lifting wings with a nice medium weight. The Gravity 2200 is the big gun that offered the lowest foil-up speed and the most amount of lift. We’d recommend the 2200 for bigger riders that need extra help getting lift-off, and to riders that are challenged by lower wingsurfing wind conditions. If we had a low volume prone board and lighter wind conditions, the 2200 would be very helpful for getting a sinking board up onto plane and in the air. Average-sized riders may find that the 2200’s lift is excessive and might spend more energy trying to keep the wing in the water while trying to ride waves, yet bigger riders will enjoy every bit of that lift.

TKB Review: 2020 F-ONE BANDIT-S “Foil and surf heaven! Very nimble and intuitive kite”

22 Apr , 2020  

The steering response continues to be one of the crispest and instant on the market with a smaller tighter radius steering path that pivots around the center of the kite which makes the Bandit incredibly agile and easy to place wherever you need it, confidently creating power in any part of the window. The Bandit-S shines for surf because it will happily hover deep in the window and riders can use the progressive power control to dial in the perfect amount of power. Many of the surf-oriented qualities that have been instilled in the Bandit S are also qualities that make it great for the casual cruising liter and foilboarding. The crisp turning, linear and complete depower and lighter bar pressure make for a
kite that is really comfortable and user-friendly with precision handling that will resonate in the hands of dedicated surf kiters first and foremost but will also bring smiles to the broad spectrum of freeride kiters

TKB REVIEW: 2020 F-ONE Mitu Pro Bamboo Foil Convertible “versatility is priceless”

22 Apr , 2020  

The Mitu Pro Bamboo Foil takes F-One’s standard Mitu board in three sizes and outfits it with foilboard tracks to give users the versatility of one board that conquers both kitesurfing and foilboarding. If you look at dedicated foilboard designs today, you will see that there is a unique but generally accepted formula that works best for foilboarding. It generally includes low volume thin decks, chimed rails, and wide noses that taper to a narrow and straighter outline tail. The drawback of these designs is that your dedicated foilboard is all
but useless when you take away the foil. For those riders that want a one board solution, one that gets you out on the water in all conditions, whether it’s light wind foilboarding, freeride bump and jump or pumping surf, the Mitu Foil has you covered.
