Description

Presentation of the F-One Bandit XV kite

The BANDIT is incredibly stable in the air, no matter what the wind is doing. Its fantastic control allows you to perform to a high level in all areas. The kite translates gusts into forward pull.

 

 

Improve your big air moves with the new BANDIT. The kite loop is quicker this year with a tighter turning radius, allowing you to dial in as much or as little intensity as you might want. You get a total support from your kite, therefore the landings are softer as you get that extra lift before you land.

The impressive instant steering response offers precision flying with the best balance between ease of input and feedback impulses from the kite. This results into a very linear feel with zero stalling. Experience the fabulous BANDIT feeling of the steering and the sheeting working so beautifully together.

The BANDIT XV offers improved hang time, pure jump height and vertical boost. It requires fewer skills and efforts to load the kite before sending it.

Going upwind is easy and comfortable, it will charge you back upwind after trying new tricks and big jumps!

Thanks to its legendary Delta C-Shape, the only still patented kite design, the kite offers incomparable bar feeling, the best relaunching ability and exceptional stability.

The leading edge has been redesigned with one more segment and a new diameter for optimum maneuverability and stability.

The new double vertical panel around the trailing edge, the double canopy trailing edge and the lighter Dacron between S1 and S2 offer the sleekest profile for the most stable flight.

Reinforcement and the construction overall has been improved to gain even more control.

Most Wanted for 15 years and still running, the BANDIT never fails to impress.

Technology

DELTA C-SHAPE
DELTA C-SHAPE technology design offers unmatched stability and steering response when fully de-powered, with the possibility of connecting the front lines higher on the leading edge of the kite.

This shape was the result of a design research towards maximum optimization of the aerodynamic performances of the kite and of its depower. It gives the possibility to fit more canopy area in the middle sections to create more projected area while the C Shape makes sure the kite remains responsive and fluid.
F One Bandit 12 C S Lines Tech Delta C Shape
DELTA C-SHAPE is a patented design used by F-ONE on all kites for the past 15 years.
REACTOR VALVE
Our fast inflation & deflation valve.

AUTO RELAUNCH
Once the kite is sitting with the leading edge flat on the water, its C-Shape associated with the Delta Pivot allows the kite to automatically roll over onto one wing tip.
F One Tech Auto Relaunch 1
The kite will then glide towards the edge of the window, ready for quick and easy water re-launch.F One Tech Auto Relaunch 2
FORCE FRAME
Kites with extended de-power ranges sustain more pressure across the canopy as they experience an increased frequency of use over a wider wind range.
Consequently F-ONE has developed a completely new structure for the Bandit, offering optimized durability with no additional weight gain.
The FORCE FRAME is a solid Dacron structure consisting of the leading edge, the trailing edge and the struts.

This high strength skeleton structure is then covered with lightweight Spy material in the least vulnerable areas.
TECHNOFORCE
TECHNOFORCE™ of TEIJIN is a high density Polyester fabric with a tear stopping structure using thin and high tension yarn.

Details

BACK LINE TUNING
How to adjust the settings?
SHEETED IN
The back line is released and the forces go through the front connector. The bar pressure increases and the maneuvrability is less direct. It offers a very progressive bar with a feeling of a sheeted out back connector while we sheet in, therefore the pressure increases progressively.
SHEETED OUT
The kite tilts and the back line stiffens. The tensions move to the trailing edge which has several effects:
- less flapping
- better start
- maneuverability with less pressure.

HIGH TENSION TUNING
When the kite is sheeted out with the upper knot tuning (1):
-kite’s maneuvrability increases
-bar pressure reduces
LOW TENSION TUNING
When the kite is sheeted out with the lower knot tuning (2):
- kite’s maneuvrability reduces
- bar pressure increases

FLAT SEWING 
Stronger assembly of the panels: they are now glued and sewn together to make the canopy more rip resistant.

STREAMLINED LEADING EDGE END TIPS
The leading edge tips benefit from a reduced diameter, they are streamlined to lower the drag and equipped with a strap to avoid bridle tangling

VERTICAL STRUT CUT
The kite's struts are designed with a vertical cut in order to optimize the strength / diameter ratio.

KEVLAR® REINFORCEMENT ON LEADING EDGE 
Most seams on the leading edge are protected with an abrasion-resistant Kevlar® fabric to prevent the seams from deteriorating when the kite's profile is subjected to aggressive ground friction

ONE PUMP COLLAR VALVE
Easier to remove and put back.Convenient for bladder replacement.
F One Bandit 2018 Tech One Pump Collar Valve
SPIDER BRIDLE
F-One have worked on a bridal system for the new BANDIT 2021. The Spider bridle is a multi point of connection well dispatched along the leading edge which offers a better control of the arc of the kite during the flight. The stability in all wind conditions is very impressive and pushes the high wind range to incredible limits.
