It will also lead you into your first kiteloops - in a safe way - this kite really catches you, even if you do something fairly stupid. Unhooking is pretty neat on this kite too!
The 2016 F-One Bandit is one of those kites you will love. There is a lot of talk about do-it-all machines. This however is definitely one of the best examples that there is a single kite that works for majority of riders.
For 2016 F-One has changed trailing edge fabric. Instead of the older 170g Dacron they have put two layers of 52g fabric preventing flapping and extending kite's lifespan. The Bandit 9 is also more responsive and feels more solid at the bar. The upwind riding on this kite is spectacular.
When buying quiver of Bandits you will notice how different they are depending on the size:
- Larger Bandits e.g. 11m² or more are made lighter and more manoeuvrable to generate as much power as possible. Also their low-end is astonishing.
- Bandits in 8-9-10m² sizes are super-efficient in any kind of winds and disciplines.
- The smaller 5-6-7m² kites are targeted at wave riding.
