F-One Breeze V2 Kite >>
Complete with FREE F-ONE PUMP:
The F-One Breeze V2 is for anyone who wants a light weight set up that offers incredible handling with great low-end performance. Now with a range of sizes going from 3m to 17m, it is the perfect kite for light wind freeriding and foiling in any conditions. Thanks to its stability and light weight, the Breeze can show off interesting performance in light wind wave riding too.
F-One's design and test team have worked tirelessly to bring significant improvements to the Breeze V2. You’ll discover the new kite has a more stable canopy when depowered and the overall range of the kite has been widened.
Across the range of sizes, the handling has been finely tuned; the larger sizes are even more responsive, making them perfect for manoeuvres. The smaller sizes are optimised to handle stronger winds with total speed control and great stability while foiling.
In the air, the Breeze V2 is so intuitive to fly you can forget about the kite and concentrate on the riding. This unique characteristic makes it perfect for beginners and advanced riders alike.
The kite has also been designed to work with a low front V on the bar to enable to untangle lines after those inevitable kite crashes.
The Breeze V2 is available right now; if you want a lightweight, one-strut kite that can put a smile on your face in 8knots, the decision is easy, let’s get breezy!
When riding, the kite reaches its maximum speed quite early on and then stops accelerating. This is a real bonus in terms of comfort when one knows the high degree of focus required to control a foil or you are taking your first steps into kiteboarding.
It also offers an impressive feeling of control and feels very progressive leading to more confidence when riding. It’s manoeuverability lets you place this kite perfectly during manoeuvres making progress much easier and faster and the bar pressure has been increased which lets you take support from and achieve better balance from the kite.
Re-launch is made super easy thanks to its light weight and backward re-launch ability, to get out of sometimes tricky situations in light winds.
Aspect ratio has been reduced to make the kite more stable and limit both acceleration and speed. Its profile is completely new as it needs to deliver both power and control.
The wingtips are wide which helps with manoeuverability, transitions and allows for backward relaunch.
F-One have also optimized the reinforcement patches to save as much weight as possible and facilitate light wind re-launch.
The bridle is new as well with 4 fixing points and 3 pulleys per side. The BREEZE is available in sizes of 3m² - 17m².
F-One Breeze V2 Monolith Control Bar Improvements:
F-One have also focused on the bar feel.
The bar is the command centre and it is where all sensations
converge. F-One have worked on perfecting the direct feel
and the efficiency of the bar when it is sheeted out, but
also in the sheeted in position like during a jump.
When depowered, you will still have a feeling of firmness, not a floaty feel, and you will not have the bad sensation that the bar keeps wanting to go up. This is a great advantage while riding or in the surf, to be able to ride with the bar out without having to pull in to make the kite turn. The result is a better direct control and a better feeling of the kites reactions.
F-One Breeze V2 Main Features:
De-power & Life Line Combo:
When the quick release is activated the EVO system becomes the Life Line and the kite lands safely on its back with immediate and total power kill.
EVO De-power offers complete control with direct and responsive steering in all riding conditions. Sheeting the bar in and out is very progressive even with the kite fully de-powered. Unhooked the kite remains light and very predictable, inspiring confidence so you can progress faster.
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.
F-One Breeze V2 -
It’s not a SLE because F-One have only two connectors for each side like F-One used to have with the F-One Tribal: front line connectors and fifth lines connectors. They are just connected on the same V bridle with a pulley on it.
It’s not a bow because the bow design is just made to gain tension on the leading edge of a flat SLE kite, so the F-One Bandit doesn't need it. The F-One has some concave trailing edge but not much and it’s because the tips move back a lot.
The F-One Breeze is not a flat kite either because the front line connectors are way higher than they were on any kite designs before and this is the secret of the Delta!
If you take away the front connectors on the tip of any kite and place them like on the Delta the tips will go up....and everywhere.
Monolith Control Bars:
You can use 22 m - 20 m or 18 m if you like to have the SL feeling if you're use to it.
Why the Delta C-Shape is the only choice:

Depower Control Bar
Breeze 2018 Linx Control Bar and Lines:
The Linx bar is available in two sizes, 52-45 and 45-38cm; this allows you to choose the perfect size bar for your quiver. The new integrated floats on the rear line not only offer a cleaner look; they also house the mechanism to adjust the size of your bar too.
A new One Line Flag Out safety system features this year and is now the standard for all F-ONE kites. There’s a high-quality corrosion proof Inox steel hub on the front lines that allows one line to slide. The first 6m of the front lines are larger in diameter for durability, and there is a stopper to prevent the bar from travelling too far away from you when the safety is engaged.
F-One have also added a manual swivel on top of the chicken loop this year; it uses a high-quality ball bearing and is easy to rotate even when powered. This allows you to untwist your front lines after performing rotational tricks and is a feature every rider is going to fall in love with!
The Lifeline safety connection has an added swivel, so there is no danger of twists affecting the release of the kite, and the same goes for the leash too. The safety can be set up in suicide mode for freestyle riders while still retaining full functionality when the chicken loop is released as the loop can slide through the Lifeline safety connection with ease.
There’s a new Inox steel ring on the front lines; riders can choose to run the front lines through this ring to give the kite a short V on the front lines. Or you can run the lines outside of this ring to have a full front V. Kites like the Furtive perform better with the full front V, while the Bandit flies better with the short V. This feature of the bar means you only need one kite bar regardless of your quiver of kites.
F-One have retained the ability to tune the rear lines, so if a line does stretch, you can still tune the bar so all the lines are equal and the kite will still fly properly.
The LINX bar features a smaller diameter to make it comfier in your hands and reduce fatigue and, of course, we have new fresh colours for 2018!
