TKB Review: 2019 F-One IC6 850 v2 – “super stable, easy to ride and great flying speed range”

3 Apr , 2019   Video

The F-One IC6 850cm wing is a durable wing that offers a medium foil up speed and much faster high-end speed with extremely stable performance. We tested the IC6 which uses an injected carbon construction to form its front wing, which makes it more durable (and presumably more affordable) than a wing with a carbon fiber glass layup.

TKB Review: 2019 F-One Mitu Pro Flex – “Easy to ride and lots of performance both in the waves and for strapless freestyle”

27 Feb , 2019   Video

Mitu is very meticulous and involved when it comes to his Pro Model. There’s no shortcut with his testing. His approach is fueled by a lot of curiosity and a very fine analysis on how the board operates. Totally focused from day one, he invests all his experience into the tests. Offshore, side-off, onshore, Ponta Preta, Kite-beach, surfing, jumping, the board must tick all the boxes to be this all-in-one ripping machine. Sizes: 5’2, 5’4, 5’6, 5’8, 5’10

Tested: TKB Reviews the F-One Furtive! “Super fun, flies upwind and boosts great!”

10 Apr , 2018   Video

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.

Manera UNION Vs. EXO Harness

22 Nov , 2017  

One of the biggest features we noticed while riding the Union vs. Exo is that the Exo has a slightly raised arc in the lumbar while the Union is more rounded. While the harness stays in place vertically, this allows for the harness to easily slide horizontally around your waist (think traveling spreader bar), making kite stance more comfortable when riding waves but also allowing you to keep your hook for strapless freestyle or unhooked riding.
