You can manage the power at any time. The kite never surges in power if you throw the kite in the window, it simply allows you to kite smoothly in the right position and ride by feel. It provides a more subtle ride as well as a constant connection with your board. You are not being pulled away, nor are your trajectories being disturbed. Its forgiving nature make the Bandit sits and wait for you next input.
The Bandit S3 offers fingertip control at all states of trim thanks to its incredibly balanced bar feel which is really comfortable on your arms.
Turning response when sheeted out has been increased, giving you more control over the kite’s position almost at will. The kite’s handling is precise and provides a more subtle ride as well as a constant connection with your board. You are not being pulled away, nor are your trajectories being disturbed.
Power delivery is clean, and although quick, very intuitive in feel to adapt to.
Drifting is on point, your lines go a bit of slack and the Bandit S3 only takes a second to retention and be ready for your next input, allowing you to keep your kite engaged at all time when surfing.
The leading edge has a new diameter, offering more control.
