For those who can read french, we have been given the 2014 F-One brochure earlier today

Good news, a new chicken loop on its way for the end of 2013

Thanks. The new bar is compatible with Bandit 4, 5 and 6 which is great. I don't speak french but it seems the new Bandit is just called Bandit 2014 (not 7).

I can't read French either, but the stuff looks good. I was really hoping they weren't going to change the Bandit that much this year. The Bandit 6 is an awesome kite. If it works, don't try to fix it!

I understand that the new QR will be available only in 2014 and wil be optional.

So if I'm buying the kite in the next two month,
and if i want the push away QR i will need to buy it when it will be released?

The bar will be red white or white only as came with bandit 6?

I wonder if the new Technoforce fabric from Teijin for the B7 is the same as the Technoforce D2 for North, since it says "Double rip stop" in the F-one 2014 catalogue? Also in the interview "double rip stop" is mentioned:

"For the past 10 years, since the Mach 1 we have been using the TEIJIN 9600 and it has been the reference in kite materials. After testing the new TEIJIN TECHNOFORCE ™ in double rip stop we discovered that it was stronger and more resistant in the long run."

Hmmm... :-?
