From the second you pick up the Magnet Carbon in hand it is obvious that this board is purpose-built for maximizing your strapless freestyle pleasure. Featherweight and thin with a wide and boxy surface area, if you were doing single front rolls before, with the Magnet you’ll be landing double fronts. The Magnet is a piece of technology designed to push strapless freestyle evolution and give you all the tools to reach the next level.
TKB Magazine put together a comprehensive list of what’s new for F-One this upcoming year, they did the same with Manera very recently and they always provide a great wealth of insider information on the products, the why, the when, for who, etc… a must read.
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.
The maneuverability is really impressive and takes advantage of a much refined rockerline. Traveling back along the bottom of the board, the concave fades progressively towards the back marking a rounded kick in the rockerline which further helps making the turns smooth and effortless. TKB tested the F-One Mitu 5’6 & 5’8 Pro flex Sizes

New for 2018 F-One presents the WTF!? Lite Tech kiteboard. With a fresh freestyle new school outline, this board is designed to be versatile and efficient for greater pop. It features raised tips for smooth landings along with thinner rails associated to the central and tip channels help to get a grip along with edging. The board’s greater width helps with early planing and landing stability. The flat deck with its offset bolt pattern are designed to accommodate boot bindings. Finally, the double concave makes it comfortable and an excellent freeride board too.
The F-one foil family offers a diverse selection of various mast lengths, fuselage lengths, mast base mounting types and multiple wing sizes to optimize the performance to your skill level and style of riding. The combo that we tested is F-One’s general freeride foil package mated with the sandwich style construction TS foilboard.
The Furtive features a high aspect ratio for high performance and 5 struts to control the profile. The leading edge arc is reduced to develop the maximum of power for a given area. Its profile has been developed to ensure maximum traction at the edge of the window. Its W5 bridle is totally innovative and brings together the function of a bridle and a 5th line! We have called it W5 due to its W pattern which includes a central line to control the leading edge arc, like a 5th line. It provides perfect distortion control and the central line further helps with the depower of the kite.
The F-One 51 TS foil board is a unique model blending the great qualities and resilience of a tough top sheet construction with the ease of use and performance of all F-One foilboards.
“Very quick, lots of depower, loves to jump, a bit punchy but fast responsive boost and really fun kite on the more aggressive side.” // Dray Murray
