Top 5 Kitesurfing Kites for 2019
A new year will usually bring a range of different resolutions for many, including spending more time outside, getting fitter/in better shape and trying something new. For some, kitesurfing will tick all the boxes, whether you’ve ridden before or not, and is a fun way to keep on top of all of your resolutions. Here at F-One, we’ve put together a guide of the best kites for 2019 so those looking to expand on their skillset in the upcoming year can do so with the equipment that’s best for them and the environment they’ll be practising in.
2019 BANDIT XII
The best “One quiver kite” there is seems to only get better with time, as shown by the 2019 Bandit XII. Available in a range of colours, the kite commands incredible control that’s suitable for both experienced and inexperienced riders alike. The kite can be playful in varying conditions and its huge riding range leads to extraordinary manoeuvrability which is notable when you’re out on the water.
BREEZE V2 KITE
Arguably the most user-friendly one strut kite on the market today, the Breeze V2 is renowned for its abilities in light wind. A fantastic option for those who are relatively new to kitesurfing thanks to how easy it is to use; the kite is notably stable in uncertain conditions. The lightweight kite has an unrivalled low wind performance, along with great speed control on a foil. Available in three vibrant colours, spectators won’t miss you on the water!
F-ONE FURTIVE V1
The Furtive V1 is widely acknowledged for its ability to launch you high and keep you there for a long period of time thanks to the natural lift it provides. It excels in both power and acceleration, making it an ideal option for those hoping to hone their tricks and skills in 2019. Riders have complete control of the profile and distortions thanks to the W5 bridle and the 5 struts and the Furtive is exactly what you need to break records with a twintip, a gun or a foil!
2018 DIABLO V3
Racers rejoice, as this one is just for you! Described by one customer as “the fastest thing on water…”, the Diablo is F-One’s third generation of ram-air kite and is a fine example of the ever innovative and creative design work. You’ll have hours of fun out on the water with this professional kite and it has everything you need to challenge for a World Champion title if you’re setting your standards even higher this year. But be warned; when we say it travels fast, we mean it.
As you are all aware, WTF stands for Win the Freestyle and this adequately describes the types of sessions you could be having with the WTF V1. Released in 2018, the freestyle machine shows excellent pop, slack and support to give riders ultimate control. The pure C shape design has a 5th line set up, along with 5 struts and comes in several different sizes, each accommodating for the conditions they are aimed at.
