2013 F-One Next Kiteboard Technologies:
Since 2001 the Direct Drive technology is present on our boards, and means to a board with minimal thickness, a 100% wood core and a 100% fiberglass envelope. These interlocking elements meet the F-ONE standards for a kite board and provide maximum durability. The Direct Drive translate into a precise board, quick and active as it erases the flaws of the water surface, collecting its energy and giving it back for the best performance. The feeling of riding a rock solid board always in contact with the water without suffering from it is even greater.
Flexibility and impact absorption are synonymous with comfort; however comfort does not mean sacrificing control and performance. It is difficult to reach this compromise, and this is the main reason behind the development of the Dynamic Flex, which can absorb the chop, without compromising the control and edging.
ABS Inverted Rail
We sought to gain support and a more progressive and constant contact in the water. Starting with a surfing rail type, we have only kept the bottom part and the result is a reversed rail profile. Its entry into the water is more gradual and the board feedback is softer.
The wood forms the heart of your board and gives it most of its mechanical properties: strength, flex and resilience (ability to return to its original shape). Each year, in order to master these properties, we seek to optimize its distribution, particularly in terms of thickness.
The patented UNIBOX system and RESPONSE fins have a radical effect: the asymmetrical profile improves the general ride and early planning. However, it is the flex of the RESPONSE fins that gives amazing rail-grip as well as pop and forgiveness on heavy freestyle landings. The fins actually twist under pressure which alleviates pressure at the same time as keeping control.
2013 F-One Next Kiteboard Sizes:
In sizes 135 x 39 cm / 138 x 40 cm / 140 x 42 cm.
The NEXT is the ultimate freeride board. Comfortable, tolerant when edging, it offers a quick early planning and keeps a good average speed. With a focus on control, access, and its ability to go upwind, it’s a great pick for freeriders as well as beginners.
In sizes 145 x 42 cm / 150 x 48 cm.
The bigger sizes are light wind oriented. Great for planning early, you’ll be the first on the water!
