New Push Away Quick Release

For 2014, F-ONE introduces its new PUSH SYSTEM safety release.

It has been developed to take into consideration all the recent incidents and unlikely situations experienced by kitesufers these past few years.
Designed to work effectively even in the most critical situations, it can be triggered under load but also when the lines are slack.

In some cases, the bar can get stuck in lower position against the release system during an emergency situation. The F-ONE safety release has a stopper at the top to allow enough room to activate the system in this critical situation. This stopper also makes sure your hands stay away from the bar when it’s turned at the maximum.

Easy to use, it can be triggered similarly by lefthanders or right-handers.
Designed with an ergonomic shape, the release handle is easy to grab to trigger the system. A flange was added to the top of the handle to improve the grip. This flange was made of soft material for the best comfort of use.

The new F-ONE safety release can be easily set-up with no specific tool required. It can be adapted onto the following kites: BANDITS 3/4/5/6/7, TRUST 2013/2014, VOLT 1 and 2 and REVOLT 3.
From the inception the new F-ONE safety release has been designed to withstand and work effectively under extreme loads, much higher than normally encountered while riding.
It was designed with high resistance materials including stainless steel reinforcements and fully optimized to make it completely reliable, ready to withstand the wear and tear of an extensive use.
The elastics where tested in extreme conditions and on more than 1000 release cycles in the lab. Moreover the F-ONE safety release system has proven it is able to hold loads up to 700kg*.
Its new push-away system enables to trigger the release with minimal force even under the highest loads. A reduced force of less than 5kg is required to trigger the system when loaded at 200kg*, while under the extreme load of 400kg, it is still possible to release with a force of 10.21kg*.

RRP: 49€

*Tested by the French National Laboratory for Metrology and Testing (LNE)

Looks nice. Just not that sure of that loose pin that keeps the CL on the depowercord. Looks like something you lose very quickly (not while hooked in ofcourse)

its an interference fit. Its tight and does not just fall out. You have to pull hard to get it seated in the slot.
