Kite

The Bandit4 is the 2011 allround kite by F-One. A Delta with three struts.

Designer Goals

The Bandit4 has a brand new profile. With only 3 struts and a renewed outline this Delta kite has a brand new feeling. This is the fourth generation in the Bandit range. With the typical characteristics of a Delta such as easy re-launch, goo low-end and depower F-one designed the Bandit4 to also be lighter, quicker and safe due to it's predictability. Each size of the Bandit4 was shaped individually to ensure that the kite offers optimal performance with each size.

Great allround kite, for advanced and professional kiters - freeride, wave, wakestyle. Also the kite itself is good for beginners, but! mind the risky safety system (quick release is not really "quick") + no total depower when kite is released.

Nonetheless Kitemaster, this is the nicest kite I have flown yet... of course I haven't flown all kites out there, but a fair amount of them...

It certainly turns fast, and is super stable... also great lift.... ;-)
