F-One Gun Kitesurf Kiteboard 2010
Board comes with Full pads, Surf straps, Futur Vector Fins, Futur Box
The gun is a board in a category of its own. It can have many purposes. Its length makes it very stable and easy to use without straps and can be used with one strap at the front. It is Super quick to plane, is outstanding during long distance especially riding, due to its incredible upwind ability and unmatched speed potential. It can go thru the chop like no other and is therefore very comfortable in rough conditions. Yet if a big swell comes in, it will go back to its original purpose in no time!
BAMBOO SANDWICH TECHNOLOGY
A kite board sustains more constraints than a standard surf board. It endures more pressure mainly in the upwind stage, in the chops and during jumps.
A sandwich construction is required to have a product adapted to our sport.
Loyal to wood, which is the core of our twin-tip boards, F.One chose bamboo for their kiteboards. The result is a light structure, super strong which absorbs the constraints.
The extremely dense cellular structure of the bamboo surpasses the one of the oak in stability and elasticity.
Bamboo is superior to wood in terms of durability and rigidity. This mighty grass is extremely solid due to high elasticity fibers lined up to the cane on the outer layer of the peel.
In tractions resistance, bamboo fibers match up the ones of trees and constructions steel.
The use of bamboo is also environmentally responsible. It benefits from an astonishing growth rate: the giant bamboo will grow 30 to 50cm per day to reach 15 to 30meters.
Every year the mother plant generates several shoots. In a full grown forest the shoots can therefore be harvested after 5years without reducing the size of the forest.
