Caesar - if you take the length of the chickenloop on the existing chickenloop - ie Bandit 6 when the kite is being ridden it is exactly the same as the new release system - the old system is rounder and stretches when you launch the kite - this gives you a super easy upgrade path from your old Bandit 4 / Bandit 5 and Bandit 6 bar ... To upgrade you remove the old chicken loop and effectively click the new on in - (by removing the little steel pin) - we have tried this upgrade already and it takes about 5 min

On this quick release - this system will still release if the bar is pushed down onto the chicken-loop under pressure. This has taken a while to develop but it works and it is super clean and simple and effective ...

Wave Ride - the new Trax boards - I am not sure of the components but they are now made in a completely new factory.

Interesting! Bru, what is the cost of the new CL?

FONE have not given us a price yet but they are going to make it affordable ... The real bonus will be Pre Bandit 7 bars can get a great facelift that will add extra value to their kite !! The upgrade will be available early in 2014 !

F-one are not one of the brands that make a noise over their products - they let them speak for themselves.

Here is a review from a couple of weeks ago from Rou Chater from iksurfmag.com
