F-ONE SIGNATURE SERIES MODEL 2013
If you are a fan of cruising, a committed rider regardless of the conditions, expert surfer or a kitesurfer beginner, it is with you in mind that every year we seek to improve the coherence of our surfboards range, so that everyone and everywhere around the world , you can find the perfect surfboard for the conditions you encounter on your travel journeys or at home.
SURF Signature In 2012, there were major innovations on those two boards with a brand new shape for a pure kite surfing program in any wave conditions. For 2013, those two boards receive some technical improvements that make them truly exceptional. Because a kitesurfer does not need volume to take off, the volume repartition was optimized with a curved in concave deck.It allows both to lower the center of gravity, increase the control by reducing the thickness of the board under the front leg without affecting the profiles and thickness of the rails.The result is a significant gain in controlling your turns. The concave deck allows the use of a thicker pad, twice as thick, that greatly improves the comfort.The bottom shape is made of a V with double concave and an ultra progressive rocker. The board turns on a dime yet holds its edge during aggressive bottom and radical turns in the waves. The Rail to rail is faster and the comfort has been improved. The 2013 « Signature » models offer a lot of control while maintaining your speed.Their behavior is predictable and their stability in radical surfing will make you forget the board so you can concentrate on the waves. Set up as a quad with the rear strap further back, they allow radical surfing whatever the conditions.With four fins, you will be able to adapt your turning radius to tight, fast or slashed. For 2013, the 5’10’’ model has a wider and rounded nose than last year and a wider tail. More compact, the board is more lively and lighter. The 5’10’’ keeps the stability off a larger board while being less bulky, more playful. It will surf all types of waves and will be more radical. The 6’0’’ is the answer to ride One Eye in Mauritius or to conditions less radical found in most spots around the world.Stable and maneuverable, it will be your most faithful ally and will not let you down.Needless to focus on the direction, the 6’0’’ will follow the given path. A sure bet and impressive to ride, the 6’0’’ knows how to be radical while being rider friendly.
The range of our 2013 surfboards is the most complete yet to date. It is the result of many years of experience, hours of testing, and mainly the result of our passion and hard work; a range that does not sacrifice performance or aesthetics.
Precursors in the use of bamboo for our surfboards lineup, we searched again and again to optimize our manufacturing processes that use this wonderful material. Combining his natural qualities with those of other materials to get the best shapes is more than a pure R&D question at F-One, it is a passion, and the end result must be as beautiful as efficient.
SIGNATURE 5'10 x 45cm and 6'0 x 45,5cm - Concave Deck & Quad
Radical innovation, 100% new shapes, two boards that represent the culmination of 15 years of R&D on kite boards dedicated to wave riding. By giving up some surf principles for creating kite references, they are no longer surfboards "diverted" for a kite use, but real surfboards developed specifically for having a kite in your hand, whatever the conditions. Because a kitesurfer does not need a lot of volume to take off, as opposed to a paddle surfer, the volume distribution was optimized through a unique new shape: an inverted concave deck. It allows both to lower the center of gravity and to increase the control by reducing the thickness of the board under the front legs, without affecting the profiles of the rails. The result is a significant gain in controlling your turns. The inverted concave deck allows the use of pads twice as thick under your front legs to further enhance comfort.
What's new in terms of shape do not stop at the deck: the new double concave V-shaped bottom and ultra progressive rocker allow for edging, acceleration, turning radius and radical angles; all this with control and ease. Comfort is also enhanced by the choice of a double concave with V providing a smooth ride through the chop and faster transition from rail to rail.
Equipped with a quad fins setup, the gain in maneuverability allows committed surfing whatever the conditions. Small or large, the waves do not define your commitment; but the ways you enter in your turns are. With the quad design, you will adapt the turning radius with your style, whether tight, fast, or slashed turns. Versatile they are the real kite surfboards.
2 sizes for 2 programs slightly different: The 5'10: for faster, powerful waves and/or in strong winds. The 6'0: in conditions less radical, or to regain stability in the large surf.
