HIGH-PERFORMANCE / HANGTIME
After 2 years of development and a revolutionary new bridle configuration, F-One releases the FURTIVE. A high aspect ratio kite designed to perform in speed racing, long distance racing and hangtime expression sessions.
SIZES: 5 / 6 / 8 / 10 / 12
This kite has been designed with a high aspect ratio for maximum performance and five struts to hold its shape in the strongest, gustiest of winds. The bridle that has been developed with this kite is nothing short of genius. Its W shape supports the leading edge arc with a centre line, much the same as a fifth line, but without the hassle. This means the arc of the leading edge can be held much flatter, increasing its ability to generate more power per squared meter. In flight, the kite is stable with positive bar feedback, giving confidence to the rider to go faster. In the jumps, it glides gently to the zenith and gives huge boost followed by hangtime that is absolutely out of this world. Hats off to F-One for this one!
The W5 bridle system has been developed specifically for this kite. It supports the centre of the leading edge, much like a fifth line, securing the arc of the kite. It enables it to de-power uniformly to ensure perfect control of the power.
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. This allows the canopy to absorb the increased pressure created by a kite with a massive de-power.
The TECHNOFORCE used on the canopy is a double ripstop material developed by TEIJIN. It is a high density Polyester fabric with a tear stopping structure using thin and high tension yarn.
