We are proud to present the new BANDIT. We have outmatched it once again and we believe you will be blown away.
I could just tell you that the new BANDIT keeps its legendary power with an improved depower , with a high end control and comfort yet unheard of, an exceptional bar feeling with ultra direct steering, an impressive hang time and flight capacity, as well as many different qualities that will transfer well into your favorite discipline.
YET what will strike you the most is the new feeling to be in direct connection with your kite, as if you were steering it directly from your hands. You will feel more confident just like if you had suddenly reached a pro level. The whole kite profile is more stable, all parasitic movements have been cleaned off and all your sensations are much clearer.
On this new BANDIT, we have also significantly reduced lateral traction without compromising the available power for an early planning and this has made the kite less physical to ride. The net result is that you have more control on your board to carve and edge.
To get such significant improvements, we have upgraded our fabric to the double rip-stop TECHNOFORCE? from TEIJIN. This new material brings superior wearing strength and better control of the profiles in flight thanks to its added stability.
Clearly, no stones were left unturned and with a rigorous design approach our new kite designer Robert GRAHAM has been able to further refine the BANDIT shape. Thanks to his deeper analysis about our concept, all these major improvements have been possible.
A devoted and efficient R&D and testing team, notably including Mika FERNANDEZ, more than 80 prototypes tested, a new designer, a new fabric, complete redefining of the design with deeper analysis.... The new bandit is the result of some extensive team work and a lot of passion to offer you a kite that will deliver exceptional sensations every session.
EVO DEPOWER AND LIFE LINE
The EVO is a V shaped bridle featuring a pulley on each front line, this system offers complete safety and allows for increased de-power by finely tuning the angle of attack of the kite.
When the quick release is activated the EVO system becomes the Life Line and the kite lands safely on its back with immediate and total power kill.
EVO offers complete control with direct and responsive steering in all riding conditions. Sheeting in and out is very progressive, the rider truly directs the kite even when fully de-powered. Unhooked the kite remains light and very predictable.
The kite has only 4 lines and a 4m long Life Line!
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 one wing tip. The kite will then glide towards the edge of the window, ready for quick and easy water re-launch.
