2020 F-One Bandit 2020 - Power, Stability, Comfort, and Reliability.. 

The Fone Bandit has developed a reputation as being the the best “One quiver kite” on the planet - and continues to just get better over the years.
2020 Introduces a split of the Bandit into two models, with the New Bandit-S Version focusing on surf / wave riding, allowing the the 2020 Fone Bandit to focus on controlled comfortable power and boosting to the moon - with the renowned familiar Bandit handling experience you will never forget, and after riding you'll know why the 2020 Fone Bandit is the kite that delivers, period.

2020 Fone Bandit - over 13 years of perpetual improvement and dedicated development! 



Splitting the 2020 Fone Bandit Kite into two distinct lines has allowed Fone to radically change the performance workings of the smaller sizes of the 2020 Fone Bandit. The 7, 8, 9 and 10 meter 2020 Fone Bandit are now fully geared to overpowered riding, big air and kite loops. The larger sizes of 2020 Fone Bandit from 11 meter and up offer incredible control and free-ride abilities with a huge wind range. Key to this new concept is the updated spider 4 or 5 point bridle set up on the new 2020 Fone Bandit, which is different to the classic 4 point bridles on the BANDIT S. The new 2020 Bandit Bridle helps keep the profile arc of the 2020 Fone Bandit Kite stable even in extreme overpowered conditions. 

The new 2020 Fone Bandit adds a massive amount of control and comfort to your riding, making it the perfect tool from events like the Megaloop Challenge and the King Of The Air, or simply cruising your local spot. The leading edge is slightly larger in diameter too, further enhancing the stability of the kite in the air. New wingtips with a squarer, more drawn out shape allow the 200 Bandit to rotate fast through the turns due to less drag thanks to the narrower angle on the rake of the tip. This new design generates a wide dynamic turn that delivers lots of pull and power through the turn for huge kite loops. 

Comfort on the water is key to everything done at F-ONE and the 2020 Fone Bandit Kite takes that to new levels. Less lateral pull, especially in overpowered conditions, will not fatigue the rider and riders won’t feel like being taken for a beaten after an aggressive session on the water.

The 2020 Fone Bandit has been designed not to deform when depowered; instead, the 2020 Bandit Kite holds its shape and remains in the same spot in the window no matter the wind strength. This means the 2020 Fone Bandit generates smooth and comfortable forward momentum even in the gustiest of conditions. This leaves riders feeling more energized and able to stay on the water for longer sessions with impressive upwind performance. The 2020 Fone Bandit Kite just effortlessly keeps flying and provides a constant power distribution. 

The turning speed and reactive steering is another feature of the 2020 Fone Bandit you will enjoy; the bar pressure is a little more positive than the BANDIT-S allowing you to feel where the kite is at all times. This is particularly important when kite looping, however while there is a little more bar pressure, the steering is incredibly quick to react and very dynamic. The turning arc of the 2020 Fone Bandit kite is always predictable and under the control of the rider. The speed back to the zenith is fast and clean. This allows riders to throw huge mega loops and feel safe and supported for the landing. 

The fast nature of the 2020 Fone Bandit kite allows riders to send it back in the window for explosive takeoffs, and Fone is expecting the new 2020 Bandit Kite to top the WOO leaderboards this year. 

Riders can still ride waves with the new 2020 Fone Bandit, it’s geared to be a great all-round kite just like every Fone Bandit in past versions - with an emphasis this year on the kite loops and big air.

The larger sizes of the 2020 Fone Bandit feature all the excellent characteristics of the smaller sizes, but the design profiles and arcs have been tweaked to offer even more low-end wind range and lightness. Riders no longer need different styles of kites to fill their quiver, just choose the 2020 Fone Bandit size that best suits your riding style and get on the water in as little as 10 knots while being confident in over 50knots too!

The new 2020 Fone Bandit will excite riders like never before; great power is nothing without control, and the 2020 Bandit Kite has unprecedented refined control and more. Big jumps, huge loops and loads of hangtime, perfect for just chilling and freeriding too, get ready for the future, get the new 2020 Fone Bandit and get ready for the ride of a lifetime.



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 2020 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 2020 Fone Bandit Kite is the culmination of over 800 prototypes that Fone has tested and ridden over the last 13+ 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 2020 F-One BANDIT XIII continues to fit perfectly in the BANDIT legacy of amazing do it all performance, with focus on explosive power and huge range for 2020. Always keeping Bandit 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.. 



2020 F-One Bandit XIII -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. 

TEIJIN 130G DACRON RIPSTOP: Fone has built thier kites for 20 years in the most state-of-the-art cloth from Teijin’s factory in Japan, and they have developed the best technologies and quality material for our kites over the years. Teijin has worked on a few major developments with the double Ripstop on the canopy cloth and durability treatments.

The kite industry was lacking choice of cloth density. Fone could build kites with a 52 gr per square meter for the canopy and about 160 gr for the leading edge, strut and reinforcements. Having only two choices was not easy because on some parts the 52 gr was too light and the 160 gr too heavy.
After developments and tests with Teijin we can now use a new Dacron 130 gr double Ripstop on our 2020 kites.

By using this new 130 gr cloth, Fone has saved weight while keeping an excellent strength. The new BANDIT 2020 is more reactive and of course feels lighter, which is particularly important for the bigger sizes, in the light wind or for the turning speed during kiteloops.

2020 F-One Bandit 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 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. 

2020 Fone Bandit Back Line Tuning Adjustments 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 all seams on the leading edge are now reinforced and protected with Kevlar abrasion resistant fabric 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. Pulley structure is extremely resistant. Bridle is integrated in the lower part of the pulley, working in its axis and not sideways.
Pulleys can be removed independently from the bridle, you can change the bridle and keep the pulley or vice versa.

All New Spider Bridle: The Spider bridle is a multi point connection distribution array well dispatched along the leading edge which offers a better control of the arc of the kite canopy during the flight. The stability in all wind conditions is very impressive and pushes the high wind range to incredible limits.

All New 2020 Fone Linx Control Bar Set 

2020 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, Bullet, One, Furtive & Trust
- New lines 30% less elastic: kite steering more precise and more durability
- Available in three sizes:
4 lines: 52/45 cm – 45/38 cm
5 lines: 42/35 cm (Freestyle)

The 2020 Fone Linx Control Bar set is Fone's new Linx feature packed control bar system evolving from the Monolith control bar series, first introduced in 2018.

For the 2020 Fone Linx Control Bar, Fone has improved the bar set through the years and added some great features to create the best connection to your kite, hands down.

What’s new for the 2020 Fone Linx Control Bar ?
- New stiffer lines with less stretch
- New Hub and Clam Cleat construction for reduced line wear and less weight
- New Aluminum 4-Line HUB for single line safety flag-out
- New Adjustable Aluminum Hub Block V-Splitter, for High/Low-V Conversion
- Harmonized color design
- New Safety Leash 75cm standard (leash also available in 40cm and 140cm

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.

2020 Fone Linx New 4 Line HUB Detail

The 2020 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).
