15 years after the birth of the first BANDIT, the F-ONE design team has once again put an astounding amount of work to create the best kiting experience for all riders. Jump higher, perform your favorite tricks at ease, improve your ride. The connection between the rider and the kite has never felt so natural.
Impressive stability no matter the conditions
Absolute control at all time
Amazing responsiveness for epic sensations
Precision flying with an excellent range and efficiency
Improved boost, hang-time and kite-loops
Effortless upwind abilities
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.
2022 Linx Bar
The LINX BAR is F-One’s control system, a dual adjustable length bar that comes in two sizes (38/45cm and 45/52cm). It perfectly blends lower weight and simplicity with excellent comfort and function.
Adjustable bar length
New depower sheath to increase durability
New automatic lifeline swivel
Intuitive and super precise depower system
The bar itself is small in diameter with a comfortable grip, which is forgiving on the hands. The grip has a rubbery feel with a fine texture. It feels firm underneath and a bit cushier on the top where your fingers wrap around the bar.
The integrated floats at the bar ends house the mechanism to adjust the size of your bar. Simply pull down the tag under the bar, rotate the insert and your bar size is changed. You will also have the possibility to adjust your back lines length.
The bar features a lifeline now placed into a new rectangular de-power sheath for more durability. This new feature prevents the centerline from rubbing against the aluminum tube and will not rub against the user’s fingers.
Above the bar, the stainless-steel cleat used to adjust the power has been updated for more simplicity, and the depower system is now thinner and therefore more precise.
The LINX BAR offers the option to switch between a low and high V:
High V for the BANDIT, BANDIT S, BULLIT, BREEZE V1 and TRUST
Low V for the TRIGGER, BREEZE V2 & V3, ONE, and FURTIVE
An additional float is placed above the de-power system to maintain positive buoyancy if you become disconnected from your bar.
The bar’s color-coding is very clear with orange on the left and dark blue on the right.
The lines end in lark’s head loops and are being attached to the bridles’ connectors.
The quick release features a built-in manual swivel above the push to untwist your lines. The new minimalist below the bar lifeline swivel is now made of a plastic stud and a stainless-steel ring on which you hang the leash. It rotates easily and automatically untwists your lifeline.

Trax Twin Tip
The TRAX is all about having fun on the water. This board is based on the legendary TRAX heritage and implements some of the latest thinking developed on the WTF?! to offer a unique blend of comfort, performance and ease of use.
Performance packed into a value conscious package
Rails inspired by HRD technology
Double concave bottom shape
Smooth ride whatever the conditions
The overall rocker line is moderate to ensure the board offers early planing and keeps the fantastic glide, which is the true signature of the TRAX. The rocker line is split into three distinct stages with a flatter section in the centre, which is crucial to achieving an excellent upwind angle and great tracking on the water. The transition between the middle section and the tips was inspired by the WTF?! rocker to offer incredible pop.
The bottom shape features a deep double concave and some tip channels. Both are quite efficient at providing first-class grip and control to the board, but the double concave is the main driver behind the overall comfort of the board and its stability at all times.
The rails are inspired by our HRD technology, with taller sections around the feet for better lift and balance, they were kept thin everywhere else to offer plenty of grip.
The deck shape is stripped down for more simplicity and better contact between the bindings and the board. The 3D work in the middle section, another heritage of the TRAX, helps the centre of the board track in a straight line with a solid feel for more accuracy and control when riding.
On the water, the board impresses by how smooth it is to ride. Everything feels natural and totally intuitive. A perfect blend of glide, solid pop and smooth landings characterise this well-balanced shape.
The TRAX is available in two sizes, which should fit a wide range of users. The proportions of the shape are inspired by the latest freestyle developments while the dimensions are kept more manageable.
The TRAX takes all the shape features of the standard TRAX and implements them in a format dedicated and tailored for the smaller sizes. Smaller and thinner, this version of the TRAX comes in 132x37cm and 133x38cm.
Produced from a specific mould, this particular TRAX is lighter and more flexible.
All versions come equipped with our UNIBox 50m fins, which offer better speed and improved glide thanks to their thinner profile.
V Double Concave: The V double concave bottom shapes combine a general V with two concave channels on each side of the center line.
The V provides maneuverability while the concaves channel the water along the board. The result is a lively board providing a comfortable ride with easy landings.
Wood Core: The wood forms the heart of your board and gives it most of its mechanical properties: strength, flex, and resilience (ability to return to its original shape).
In optimizing the wood thickness distribution, F-One always seeks the best compromise between strength, stiffness, and weight to ensure you get the best of your board and maximum comfort.
Lifted Tip Channels: These channels help provide superior grip towards the tip of the board and are designed to be super efficient during the pop. To form the channels, the tip of the board is raised in its central part, therefore creating added lift locally to the rocker of the board for better pop and easier landings.
3D Deck Structure: Board flex is tuned through both materials and shape.
The shape of the deck is especially engineered to make the board ultra-responsive between your legs for maximum drive and precision with the flex increasing progressively towards the tips for maximum pop and comfort.
The patented UNIBOX system and RESPONSE fins have a radical effect: the asymmetrical profile improves the general ride and early planing.
However, it is the flex of the RESPONSE fins that gives amazing rail-grip as well as pop and forgiveness on heavy freestyle landings.
Platinum 3 Bindings
F-One have developed a pad which is able to fit all types of feet whilst ensuring the best connection with your board. The pad offers the most amazing feel while riding, and absorb the impacts. The straps lock your feet to the pad in the ideal position.
To obtain the highest quality pads, they have chosen an injected process that permits various forms and densities. F-One created a dual-density pad for an optimized comfort: the edge areas are denser for a better support while the foot bed areas are softer for more comfort. They are using a unique process that allows generating all possible forms while picking the best EVA foam density.
Because a pad is those two essential things: a form and a foam. The F-ONE strap is fully adjustable to the size and shape of the foot. This year they’ve improved the quality of the strap, which are now filled with gel foam for a fantastic comfort. Its neoprene coating is combined with a base in injected plastic.
There are three tuning axes to set the PLATINIUM3 BINDINGS on the board for an optimum riding position:
Angle: from 0° to 24°, you can select the foot angle that fits you the best.
Foot Position: you can slide the PLATINIUM3 BINDINGS forth or back on the board to place your feet at the right distance from the edge of the board.
Stance: all F-ONE boards offer three settings for the spacing of your feet. Three types of controls depending on the size of your feet for an amazing comfort:
A refined construction:
Dual-density pad for an optimized comfort:the edge areas are denser for a better support while the foot bed areas are softer for more comfort
Combination of a fine anti-slip texture with a layer of thermoformed EVA to offer a perfect grip.
Assembly based on a light but solid base plate.
The PLATINIUM3 BINDINGS form a block which can be positioned and fastened easily on the boards (requiring only two screws). They can also be transported easily without losing your finely tuned setup.
An ergonomic pad shape:
Optimized slope: the whole pad is canted towards the inside of the board to keep the feet perpendicular to the legs.
Dedicated grab ridge in toe area.
Specific support area under the foot arch.
Wide heel area to let you angle your foot as you feel like depending on your riding.
Lateral comfort flanges to protect your feet from the plastic straplocks.
A new generation footstrap:
A thermoformed structure combined with a gel foam core provide the footstraps with an ideal comfort and support.
