F-One's legendary BANDIT returns for its 14th edition, featuring improvements that offer the best riding experience - no matter the conditions. 

  • Outstanding upwind efficiency 
  • Optimized bar pressure - concise and effortless response from the kite
  • Exceptional wind range: the new BANDIT performs remarkably in both low and high winds
  • Reduced lateral pull: takes the quest for a ride without drag to new levels
  • Power and generous lift for massive kiteloops and big air boosts
  • Remarkable stability for an enjoyable and safe ride, even in the toughest conditions




2021 marks our second year splitting the BANDIT into two distinct lines to allow for more versatility, depending on your riding style. 
While key features remain consistent, we are proud to have once again further developed through troubled times the BANDIT to offer you the quality gear you deserve on the water. 

The BANDIT 2021 is extremely pleasing to fly whilst having a sporty feeling. Its behaviour is direct and reactive as well as stable, smooth and homogenous. Its power is totally controllable and the kite is not physical to handle. Whether you want to park it and ride freely for hours or send it throwing some big kiteloops, the BANDIT will deliver. 

This year's BANDIT exceeds expectations in terms of shape control. You will not be bothered by unwanted movements coming from the kite. Our new panel layout and our new trailing edge reinforcement allowed us to get a super sleek profile. This resulted in a stability in flight never reached before, providing full confidence and unmatched performances. The work done on the skin tension in the canopy makes the balance between stability and manoeuvrability perfectly even. 


Going upwind has never been so comfortable. This year again we have worked on reducing the drag, and creating positive forward momentum allowing you to stay even longer on the water. 

The BANDIT 2021 is very light to fly yet has a feedback incredibly direct. The kite consistently reacts to your demand, and you always know where it sits in the window. The turning of the BANDIT is quick and precise and remains totally controllable when depowered. 

The jumping potential



> Delta C-shape - 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. 

> Auto relaunch - 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 the one wing tip. The kite will then glide towards the edge of the window, ready for quick and easy water re-launch. 

> Force frame - 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. F-One have developed a completely new structure for the Bandit, offering optimized durability with no additional weight gain. 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. 

> Technoforce - is a high density Polyester fabric with a tear stopping structure using thin and high tension yarn.
