F-One Furtive 2017 Kite
After two years of development, Fone have launched the Furtive, ideal for long-distance racing, speed riding and hang-time sessions.
Size: 5m, 6.4m, 8m, 10m, 12m
- Incredible hang-time
- Maximum traction towards the edge of the window
- Great stability and very accurate bar feeling
- High aspect ratio and reduced arc for maximum power and unmatched acceleration
- New W5 bridle with 5 struts for optimum control and minimum distortion
This kite is made to overtake anything else on the water and beat hang-time records!
In 2014, Alex CAIZERGUES asked Fone for some custom kites to beat his own speed record of 56.62 kts. The design brief was to reach a maximum speed by riding over-powered with a 6.5m on the speed run with an average wind of 50kts… Fone have therefore worked on a kite with more aspect ratio and 5 struts. But during the development, two things happened:
First Fone were surprised by the enjoyment they had when riding with this kite. This is due to the thrills it provides thanks to its performance (who doesn’t like speed and acceleration…?) but also thanks to its hang-time. Then the foil riders in search for a long distance weapon became interested in this kite and immediately wanted to use it.
