Description

Details

A very tweaked version of the 2018 who for most was a massive leap over previous Bandits, the 2019 has if it could of been possible to make them even faster, this is staggering in the bigger sizes, the kite has become even more direct when steering and like a great sports car, you can precisely feel where the kite is in the sky and what it is doing with a massive amount of feed back. the strut deflate valve has gone, and the wing tip simple V bridle has given the rider a much smoother power delivery. In a nut shell everything the F-one bandit 2018 was with some lovely tweaks to make it even better. We try and stock these kites but due to so many colors sometimes it might take us a few days to get a different color.

Bandit 2019
I finally managed to get out on the new 12m B12 today. It was light wind 12-16 mph but enough to at least test its bottom end capabilities. The most noticeable difference was when sheeting out, with the B11's you could virtually dump all the power but the kite would partly loose its shape and the sides would flex slightly. However the B12 maintains the power in a progressive way and its shape, no flexing. I guess this is because of the V connection at the tips and first solid bridle connection. So you can power through turns, make tighter turns & IMO has given the kite a better lower end and more nimble lighter feel. The bar pressure was slightly increased but not noticeable. Didn't really test the jumping ability as wind was so light but I can imagine the new bar will give a progressive feel not the boost, lag, boost of the B11 kite and bar. Most impressed with new bar and lines. The stiffer lines and the above improvements to the kite gives it a really direct "extension to your arms feel". I liked the new hub and splitter which has seperated out the lines better. Also liked getting rid of the extra valve on the centre strut (no purpose IMO) and the protective cap over the valve, so when the kite is being rolled up I can put the valve cap in the cover, and closed it for protection. Also the bar feels thinner but more shaped and more comfortable on the hands.
Overall very impressed with the Bandit 12's (also colours) and the new bar package, refined improvements over the B11's which were already excellent kites. Can't wait to test their all round performance in stronger winds.
Cheers Ian
