F-One Furtive Water Relaunchable Delta / SLE Kite >>
The F-One Furtive is ideal for any rider aspriing to speed riding, long distance racing and hang-time sessions.
Its profile has been developed to ensure maximum traction at the edge of the window.
Developed originally to set a world speed record of over 56 knots, the Furtive has been developed with more aspect ratio and 5 struts for added rigidity in high wind conditions.
You will be surprised by the enjoyment the Furtive gives when riding this kite. It's performance (who doesn’t like speed and acceleration?) but also thanks its amazing hang-time.
The Furtiv's W5 bridle is totally innovative and brings together the function of a bridle and a 5th line! F-One 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.
F-One Furtive 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.
All bars will fit all sizes kites - the smaller sized 8.0m-10m ones fly best with the 45cm and the 12m's are 52cm. All flying lines are 24 m.
You can use 22 m - 20 m or 18 m if you like to have the SL feeling if you're use to it.
Beginner to Pro:
Performance usually comes with jumping abilities. To improve this aspect, we have worked on the bar feeling, its maneuverability when sending the kite to the zenith and its boost during the jumps. The kite tows you way up and glides very well afterwards. Hang-times records are up for grabs!!
Going hard upwind feels quite exceptional as the kite gives you the feel of being on an open reach. Its traction is really oriented towards the edge of the window with good support which saves you from pushing too much on the legs or on the back.
When reaching or going downwind, this kite will let you ride at full speed, helping the board to wipe away the sea state.
Controlling the distortion of the kite during all flying phases has been the hardest goal to achieve during the development for foil riding but it has clearly benefitted all other disciplines.

Monolith Control Bar and Lines:
The heart of the MONOLITH bar is made directly from a 6061 aluminum block. The computer numerical control (CNC) fabrication used allows to carve the bar in one unique piece. This new fabrication method is used in conjunction with 6061 Aluminum, an alloy charged with magnesium and Silicium. This material is extremely resistant and is used in the Aerospace fields. On top of its strength, this material offers excellent resilience and great resistance to corrosion.
