F-One Furtive Key Features:

One Pump Collar Valve:
The One Pump System allows you to pump the whole kite with just one valve. Safety clips on the connecting tubes isolate the struts from the leading edge. The neoprene cap is simple and effective and every tube is fixed with a security clip to the valve. The security clips are easily removed in case of bladder repair.

Deflate Valve of the Centre Strut:
Makes packing the kite easier, since it was sometimes hard to empty all air with the one pump system when packing up.

Kite Tuning:
2 different positions on the back lines wingtip allows for more bar pressure and a slower turning kite or lighter bar pressure and a faster turning kite.

Kevlar Leading Edge Reinforcements:
Most seams on the leading edge are now reinforced with Kevlar to prevent the seams to deteriorate on aggressive ground friction.They protect the leading edge from damage whenever the kite comes into contact with the ground and significantly prolong the life of the kite.

Skin Reinforcement :
Each skin of the kite is sewn and reinforced by a self-adhesive Dacron for extra strength.

Flat Sewing:
Stronger assembly of the panels are now glued and sewn together to make the canopy more rip resistant.

Profiled Leading Edge Tips:
The leading edge tips are profiled and have a reduced diameter to avoid any bridles tangling and drag effect.

Profiled Batten End Tips:
A new batten closing system enables F-One to reduce its diameter in order to decrease the drag. A small batten ensures the closing and holds it in position.

F-One Furtive Technology:

F-One Bandit 2016 9 IX Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW KiteAuto 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.


The kite will then glide towards the edge of the window, ready for quick and easy water re-launch.

F-One Bandit 2015 8 VIII Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW KiteForce 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.

F-One Bandit 2015 8 VIII Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW KiteTechnoforce:
TECHNOFORCE™ of TEIJIN is a high density Polyester fabric with a tear stopping structure using thin and high tension yarn.

F-One Bandit 2015 8 VIII Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW KiteFusion Struts:
The struts are fused with the canopy all the way along the canopy profile where they are integrated into the FORCE FRAME.

 

This increases the rigidity of the Force Frame and reduces drag by creating a clean and well balanced structure.

Description

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 Furtive is also perfect for foil riders in search for a long distance weapon.

 

W5 Bridle:

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:
Speed, control and easy upwind tracking on a large wind range are eseential qualities for anyone. The front line orientated traction makes it easier to stay upwind and find the balance on your board whether you are just getting up and riding or landing your first kiteloop!


Twin-Tip Riding:
F-One Bandit 2016 9 IX Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW KiteThe kite is stable and the motion is fully under control. Bar feedback is super clear which makes you want to go faster all the time. Get ready, you are going to be willing to over-take anything else on the water!

 

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!!

 

F-One Bandit 2016 9 IX Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW KiteLong Distance Racing:
Comfortable and fast, this Furtive is perfect for long distance courses and provides you with enough control to regulate your efforts during the long runs. Its flying range provides great tolerance to wind variations, especially in the high range.

 

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.

 

F-One Bandit 2016 9 IX Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW KiteFoil Riding:
To foil at high speed requires a lot of control and avoiding parasitic movements in the kite, especially wingtip flutter. If the kite moves, then you move too and so does your foil which inevitably results in losing control of your direction and balance.

 

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.

 

Speed:
F-One Bandit 2016 9 IX Kiteboarding Kite Surf LEI Water Relaunchable C-Shape BOW Kite Flying an 8m in over 50 knots can be a nightmare but with the Furtive you can keep cool as the flying properties keep you in control and the kite control doesn't distort. The great control is what world speed record holders need to beat their own records! Your attention is no longer focused on the kite and those crazy wind gusts but on your trajectory and optimising board speed!

 

F-One Furtive Main Features:

 

  • Increased wind window for a constant forward pull
  • Legendary low end Bandit wind range
  • New oustanding high end control
  • Excellent stability over the entire range
  • Shorter bar clearance for full power / depower
  • Smooth bar traction while unhooked
  • Increased Upwind and Speed Performance
  • Maximum Depower with a shorter depower rope
  • Lighter bar feeling and direct confident feeling
  • Better control of the profile and shape in high wind range for impressed performance and control

Used by the Pros:
The F-One Furtive will be used by the F-One team in the KPWT- PKRA - SPEED- Long distance events from today and not because we force them - but because they like it!
