When we decided to start the foil kite program it was only because we were able to collaborate with a state of the art designerand factory from the paragliding industry, namely Mr. Gin Seok Song. Gin Gliders Paragliding is a leading brand of high end and competition paragliders. The 2017 F-One Diablo V.2 was designed by Gin Seok Song and then tested and developed by Gin test pilot Hans Bollinger previous paragliding World Champion and the F-One designer Robert Graham. They used advanced design and manufacturing technologies that have been acquired through many years of paragliding. The experience of this collaboration has enabled us to quickly build a kite that has already placed F-One team riders on the podium of international competitions.
The collaboration between F-One and Gin Gliders was natural because both the companies and the founders Gin Seok Song and Raphael Salles are driven by the same passion. Passion for their respective sport as well as for high end products and innovation. The 2017 F-One Diablo V.2 goes even further, it is now the ultimate racing weapon. The goal of the 2017 F-One Diablo V.2 was to expand the wind range, raise the efficiency of the kite and to improve the upwind angle without losing any performances. Designers of the 2017 F-One Diablo V.2 achieved this by increasing the aspect ratio, as well as the number of cells. These developments all enabled to boost the kite's speed, power generation and its angle in the wind window. It also creates a more accurate profile across the span of the kite, which further enhances lift, stability and performance.
The 2017 F-One Diablo V.2 bridle has also been totally redesigned to deal with the new higher aspect ratio. To reduce turbulent flow as the air leaves the profile of the kite some mini ribs have been added to the trailing edge, decreasing the drag and enhancing the airflow. The 2017 F-One Diablo V.2 construction retains the lighter fabric on the underside of the kite, which was introduced last year. This method increases the responsiveness of the kite and also helps the 2017 F-One Diablo V.2. to outperform its rivals on the downwind legs of the racecourse. The 2017 F-One Diablo V.2 is a finely tuned, turbocharged, thoroughbred version of its predecessor, taking an already winning formula and developing it even further. Featuring top of the range performances while remaining stable and responsive. The 2017 F-One Diablo V.2 is the very epitome of a racing wing and will take you straight to the top of the podium, just like it does for Maxime Nocher.
The Diablo was a success right from the first few races as Maxime Nocher was reaching podium results with an impressive series of 1st places. The performances were there, of course, but the entire team was also focused on the other features that the kite must also have:
