Kite Foil Wing / Assembly >>
Accessible and really progressive, the F-ONE KITEFOIL is the new weapon of choice to not only ride, but truly fly over the water.
Foiling is more than a new discipline; it’s a whole new world. The F-ONE kitefoil has been developed with the most experienced foil riders and every element of the foil has been designed to deliver the best imaginable experience out on the water whether you about to start or if you already master the magic of foiling.
With innovation deeply rooted into its DNA, the F-ONE team has worked tirelessly to design, engineer, test and optimize this new piece of equipment. The shapes and profiles have been carefully selected and optimized by F-ONE’s in-house naval architect and the foil assembly concept was completely thought back towards ease of use.
Using the patented “Fast Connection Device”, the F-ONE kitefoils can be assembled in minimum time using one single screw. Saving time, this system also saves you space as the complete foil can be split into three separate parts which all fit within convenient space for traveling. Less parts, less volume, less hassle! Yet, the most user-friendly aspect of the FCD system is that it guarantees the perfect alignment of your wings and profiles over time, session after session.
No tuning is ever required, just plug the parts together and go riding with complete peace of mind. Building from the best available materials and technologies is not only key to the top performances but is also proving critical to provide a package fit for learning efficiently. Made of compression molded Pre-preg and Forged Carbon, the F-ONE kitefoil makes the most of the best technologies to offer a truly innovative and top of the range product.
F-One 88 cm Mast:
With a depth of 88 cm, the mast offers great performances and comfort without being intimidating or proving too long when starting off in onshore winds or shallower waters.
Using a specific profile promoting laminar flow to reduce friction, the mast keeps a thickness of 12 mm all along its bottom half to ensure minimum drag. The profile thickness then increases rapidly towards the top of the mast for more stiffness. Torsion and bending motions are locked by its elaborate one shot construction to make the mast super stiff.
F-ONE Freeride Wing
With a span of 58 cm and a surface area of 595 cm² this blade has enough grunt to lift you out of the water effortlessly even in marginal conditions but will remain easy and fluid to handle even at pace thanks to its refined profile.
Built using Pre-preg carbon over a Forged Carbon central core, the stiffness of the blades has been finely tuned to make it as stable and predictable as possible.
With great directional control and plenty of surface area to rely on, the F-ONE freeride wing can be pressed hard to reach higher speeds if this is what you’re after and will be the key to successfully mastering air jibes and other flying manoeuvers.
F-ONE Freeride Stabilizer
Equipped with generous winglets, the stabilizer blade offers fantastic control with enough surface area to provide full confidence when learning. Its profile and angle of attack were tuned to achieve a more intuitive balance which will help you get your foiling manoeuvres in more easily.
F-One Kitefoil Specifications:
F-One Kitefoil Construction >
With Pre-preg fabrics, the carbon fibre is directly impregnated with epoxy resin by its manufacturer; this guarantees a perfect ratio between epoxy and carbon, and represents the highest quality process. The material is stored in cooled rooms and catalyzes at 120° C in a mold. The Pre-preg fibers must travel in refrigerated trucks and be stored frozen. The refined ratio between carbon fibre and epoxy resin provides the lightest weight with the best mechanical properties of carbon fibre.
This technology takes advantage of the same principles as standard Pre-preg but uses a different type of fibre which is better suited to mold small parts with complex shapes. It allows us to build accurately smaller sized parts that are very reliable.
The advantages of these two technologies are their high end mechanical properties, but also their fast production cycle which allows us to work with a faster and more rational construction process. (1h to cure a Pre-preg mast and about 10 minutes for a Forged Carbon part). This is crucial for delivering a high quality product made in France.
