2019 Fone Bandit - 12 years of perpetual improvement and dedicated development! 

The 2019 Fone Bandit Kite offers a unique range of use; the top pro riders choose it for freestyle, waves and big air, it’s also a popular school kite, thanks to its auto-relaunch capabilities and it’s easy to fly nature. The BANDIT is perfect for beginners, intermediates and experts alike, whatever your style is on the water, the Bandit delivers. 

The 2019 Fone Bandit Kite offers an increased wind range, allowing riders to get going early while providing total control even when overpowered. The 2019 Fone Bandit offers unrivaled hang time and support through improved stability all the way through every jump, allowing riders to perform tricks and complete landings with ease. This year Fone has worked hard to give the 2019 Fone Bandit the perfect amount of increased traction power, with reduced lateral pull. This means riders won’t get as fatigued on the water, and holding an edge is an effortless dream as the new Bandit is always flying forwards rather than pulling sideways. 

The 2019 Fone Bandit Kite continues to be based on the revolutionary Fone Delta C Shape patent; this unique design makes the kite exceedingly stable in the air, offers unrivaled handling characteristics, and also allows for easy relaunch. With well over 12 years of development, Fone has perfected kite improvement without drastically changing core kite characteristics, every year the kite gets better without removing any of the good / loved core qualities - this why the Bandit has such a loyal following. From over 12 years of design Fone has also learned precisely where the stress points are on the kite, by using high-end materials in the right places the durability of the Fone Bandit kite has been further improved for 2019. 

Key Features of the new 2019 Fone Bandit
  • Huge Riding Range: The fantastic gust handling and depower range of the new Bandit means that you’ll enjoy every session, regardless of the conditions.
  • Extraordinary maneuverability & responsiveness: It’s like flying a fighter jet instead of a passenger plane!

How do you improve the Bandit?
Every year Fone asks this question, and each year there follows another question, what are are riders looking for? Fone's primary focus is to develop the wind range, the lateral pull of the kite, the feedback and feeling at the bar and the maneuverability. After twelve years of constant enrichment, we focused on specific areas to channel efforts and achieve new goals with the twelfth edition of the 2019 Fone Bandit XII.

Riding Range
This has always been a key are for the Bandit, a wider wind range means you can enjoy longer sessions in more varied conditions. Just because a kite works across a wide range though doesn’t mean it is good. Enhancing the effective “Riding Range” was the goal for the designers and testers; this is the range of wind in which you can perform all your tricks. You’ll find the 2019 Fone Bandit Kite allows you to ride at your best regardless of the conditions.

The Ultimate Link
There is a special link between the rider, wind and the water. Your connection to the kite is crucial, it is how you feel the power from the wind, and it provides the control as well. The feelings we get when we are kiting are always different, the wind is constantly changing and so too is the water we ride on. With predictable and consistent power delivery and incredible bar feedback, the new 2019 Fone Bandit ensures every session is a good session. There will be no more complaints about gusty winds or struggling for control when overpowered.

At F-One they believe that we’re happier when we are riding smaller kites. 7-9m kites are always the most fun to fly, as they are so reactive. This year the handling on the new 2019 Fone Bandit Kite has been further improved so that every kite feels smaller in the sky. You’ll find the 12m flies like a 9m and that feeling is priceless.

Smooth Power Delivery
Many kiters don’t fully appreciate the importance of lateral pull in their kites. When we ride, we are always fighting the forces from the kite by edging the board to create forward motion. For many years we have been working to reduce the lateral pull felt by the rider, this means you can enjoy longer, more comfortable sessions with less effort. The new 2019 Fone Bandit offers the perfect balance between power and lateral pull, with fantastic low end and incredible comfort in the middle and at the top of the wind range. Edging has never been so easy, your jumps will be even bigger, and your board is released.

Fone Bandit, the best selling kite on the market..

The Fone BANDIT is the best selling model on the market thanks to its unique qualities and army of dedicated fans around the globe. Regardless of your riding style, the 2019 Fone Bandit Kite will appeal to you. Fone is proud of this success; it’s down to nothing other than pure hard work, time and effort. Robert Graham, Fone's designer, works tirelessly with the testing team of Mika Fernandez and Raphael Salles. Each year 80+ prototypes are designed, built and tested in order to achieve the perfect kite. Fone tests in all conditions and disciplines, from twin tips, surfboards and hydrofoils. 

This year the 2019 Fone Bandit Kite is the culmination of over 700 prototypes that Fone has tested and ridden over the last 12 years. It’s arguably the most intensely developed product on the market right now, period. 

Based on the stand alone (tried and true) patented F-ONE DELTA C-SHAPE design, the 2019 F-One BANDIT XII continues to fit perfectly in the BANDIT legacy of amazing do it all performance. Keeping core positive performance attributes the same and only tweaking areas for next level performance, based on extensive prototype testing on real kites with real riders (not just computer models only chasing gimmicks), and also utilizing feedback from real world riders around the globe. 

The Bandit's complex and demanding performance criteria are respected in each aspect and for every kiteboarding discipline. This allowed F-One to maintain the qualities previously acquired over years of development while implementing new ones without compromise - this is why the BANDIT actually excels in many disciplines and can be found on numerous podiums around the world, and why riders simply love the Bandit and keep coming back for more.. 

2019 F-One Bandit XII -Technology Highlights 

XL Reactor Inflate / Deflate Valve: XL Inflate / Deflate valve for faster inflation and pack-down - unique low profile flush design to eliminate drag, and free flow design for fastest inflation and deflation - with unique cut off valve that engages when pump hose is disconnected to prevent any air pressure loss when disconnecting hose. 

DELTA C-SHAPE: DELTA C-SHAPE technology design offers unmatched stability and steering response when fully de-powered, with the possibility of connecting the front lines higher on the leading edge of the kite. This shape was the result of extensive design research towards achieving maximum optimization of the aerodynamic performances of the kite and of its depower. It gives the possibility to fit more canopy area in the middle sections to create more projected area while the C Shape makes sure the kite remains responsive and fluid. DELTA C-SHAPE is a patented design used by F-ONE on all kites for the past 11 years. 

EVO De-Power & Life Line System: The EVO De-power concept is a simple 4 line system with New Single Line Flag Out on the all new optional Linx Control Bar Set. This simple system offers complete safety and allows for increased de-power by finely tuning the angle of attack of the kite. When the quick release is activated the optional Linx Single Line flag out system becomes the Life Line and the kite lands safely with immediate and total power kill. EVO De-power offers complete control with direct and responsive steering in all riding conditions. Sheeting the bar in and out is very progressive even with the kite fully de-powered. Unhooked the kite remains light and very predictable, inspiring confidence so you can progress faster. 

Auto Re-Launch: Once the kite is sitting with the leading edge flat on the water, its C-shape associated with the Delta Pivot allows the kite to automatically roll over onto one wing tip. The kite will then glide towards the edge of the window, ready for quick and easy water re-launch. 

Force Frame: The FORCE FRAME is a solid Dacron structure consisting of the leading edge, the trailing edge and the struts. This high strength skeleton structure is then covered with lightweight Spy material in the least vulnerable areas. Kites with extended de-power ranges sustain more pressure across the canopy as they experience an increased frequency of use over a wider wind range. Consequently F-ONE has developed a completely new structure for the Bandit, offering optimized durability with no additional weight gain. 

Fusion Struts: The struts are fused with the canopy all the way along the canopy profile where they are integrated into the FORCE FRAME. This increases the rigidity of the Force Frame and reduces drag by creating a clean and well balanced structure. 

TECHNOFORCE Double Ripstop Fabric: All New super high density fabric with a tear stopping structure using thin and high tension yarn. Unmatched strength, durability, and light weight performance. 

2019 F-One Bandit XII Feature Highlights

Flat Sewing: Stronger assembly of panels, seams are glued and sewn together to make the canopy more rip resistant. 

Vertical Cut Struts: The Bandit 8 struts are designed with a vertical cut in order to optimize the strength/diameter ratio. 

Streamlined Leading Edge End Tips: The leading edge tips are profiled with a reduced diameter and tip strap to avoid any bridles tangling and drag effect. 

Refined Trailing Edge: The internal outline of the trailing edge panels is no more linear but with a series of arches. In the center, dacron has been replaced by a double layer of canopy fabtis which improves tension spreading, maintains profile, and brings new gains in stability and performance. 

Kite Tuning: All new progressive tuning knot adjustments on back line convention at kite - mini 'V' Back Line Adjustment for dynamic active tuning. 

2019 Fone Bandit Back Line Tuning Detail

One-Pump System: Effortless and reliable single access point inflation for fastest inflation and setup time. 

One Pump Collar Valves: Easier to remove and put back plus practical during bladder replacement 

Canopy Reinforcement: DACRON reinforcements added to high friction zones to strengthen and reduce wear. 

Kevlar Reinforcement on Leading Edge: Most seams on the leading edge are now reinforced with Kevlar to prevent the seams from deteriorating on aggressive ground friction. 

F-One Unique Heavy Duty Pulleys: Extremely heavy duty custom pulley design, larger surface area and even force distribution to reduce line wear and increase performance.

All New 2019 Fone Linx Control Bar Set 

2019 Fone Linx Control Bar Features 
- Adjustable bar length
- One line flag out system
- Manual Swivel above chicken loop to untwist front lines 
- Only one bar for BANDIT, BREEZE, FURTIVE & TRUST
- New lines 30% less elastic: kite steering more precise and more durability

5 lines: 42/35 cm

The 2019 Fone Linx Control Bar set is Fone's all new feature packed control bar system evolving from the Monolith control bar series, first introduced in 2018.

For the 2019 Fone Linx Control Bar, Fone has improved the bar set and added some great features to create the best connection to your kite, hands down.

What’s new for the 2019 Fone Linx Control Bar ?
- New stiffer lines with less stretch
- New Hub and Clam Cleat construction for reduced line wear and less weight
- New Adjustable Hub Block V-Splitter, for High/Low-V Conversion
- Harmonized color design
- All New Safety Leash 75cm

The new lines are less elastic: they stretch 30% less than typical lines out in the market, which also makes kite steering more precise. Moreover, elongation through time is reduced which allows to ride with a kite always perfectly tuned. In addition, as the lines are stiffer it makes them easier to untangle whilst setting up the kite.

The Hub is now made of aluminium and the F-ONE cleat is hollowed, which allows to have lighter parts for an even more performing bar. Finally the central neoprene float colors as well as the release handle have been harmonized with the rest of the bar to create a neat Linx Bar.

2019 Fone Linx New HUB Detail

The 2019 Fone Linx Control Bar bar is available in two sizes for the 4-line configuration, 52-45 and 45-38cm; this allows you to choose the perfect size bar for your quiver. Fone's new integrated floats on the rear line not only offer a cleaner look, the integrated floats also house a revolutionary mechanism that allows quick conversion between two selectable bar lengths (like having two bars in one).
