Re: F one release b7

toi think i will try to release on my next session to sort it out. on my 9m the kite goes on its back but after a while it flips with leading edge in water facing me fully depowered in the same position as when you put kite down on beach. Is will try on my 12m maybe I need to put the yellow stopper...

Re: F one release b7

Just pull hard on the center line after you punch out and the kite will die and fly on its back. Keep pulling till you hit the yellow ball stopper. it's that simple. The F one kites don't roll over and play dead like other kites coz that's how they get that direct fast feel. Just get familiar with ...

Re: F one release b7

Still have not managed to solve this issue. I had my 9M b5 kite invert the other day and had to pull the release when I could not get the kite back on track. The leading edge was inside out. The kite kept flying and pulling after being released. Had to get a friend hold it down. I have been consider...

Re: F one release b7

Moving towards kite makes sense! Thanks, will try. What If there is a gust or if you are overpowered will it not get new tension, fly off its back and yank you? What about self rescue? From my b4 and b5 experience, the kite starts flying around if I start winding the lines up. There will be tension ...

Re: F one release b7

Bnthere, you may be right. There are a few things that I thought could make a difference!? 1. The 2 centerlines come from another angle from the swivel on an f1 one bar than they would if they came from nearer the bar as on most 1-line release 4 line bar like Ozone. This could be perhaps be a design...

Re: F one release b7

Does it fly as well on the other brand bars? I think my friend has used them with Ozone bars but I think they were a bit more tame on the Ozone bar? Maybe depends on the trim :)

Re: F- One Bandit no quality

What year is that? Have to pump f ones hard if you want them to fly their best. It says 10 PSI recommended in their manuals and that is really hard... I had my bar break in half from corrosion but my country distributor gave me a new one. My f one kites have lasted really well. Still flying my B4 20...

F one release b7

Hi guys, I have been riding f one only for the last 3 years. Love them. I am advising a beginner friend about kit. Only downside with previous system is that the kite does not fully depower when quick release is pulled. Is this fixed on b7 or still just around 60% depower on release???? I have moved...

Re: Cabrinha vs F One, North - 2013 kites

Get the bandit six and pair it with the north 4 line bar, last years bar is way cheaper and in my view better, had all the bandits and Vegas kites even this years, I have settled for the bandit six, but I still own a set of bandit Vs, they are too close to call, but way better than the fours. The F...

Yeah, would rather buy the Vegas but believe it or not, the Vegas would cost me $ 900 more than the b6 or the Chaos...
