Brand F-One

This Freeride foil built of aluminum and carbon is stable and really versatile for a performance foiling program.

The Hybrid Aluminium/Carbon Freeride is made of:
– Mast Aluminium 90cm
– Front Wing Carbon Freeride/Surf 1000/800/600 OR 510
– Fuselage SST Carbon Freeride 42cm
– Stabilizer Carbon Freeride 300cm²
– KF-Box

Accessible, progressive, performing, light and maneuverable, the F-ONE kitefoil range has been created to provide the best dedicated weapon to all riders.

Foiling is more than a new discipline; it’s a whole new world. The F-ONE kitefoil range has been developed with the most experienced foil riders and every element of the foil has been designed to deliver the best imaginable experience out on the water whether you about to start or if you already master the magic of foiling.

TWith innovation deeply rooted into its DNA, the F-ONE team has worked tirelessly to design, engineer, test and optimize this new piece of equipment. The shapes and profiles have been carefully selected and optimized by F-ONE’s in-house naval architect, and the foil assembly concept was completely thought back towards ease of use.

Fast Connection Device (FCD)

iksurfmag-fone-foil03We have developed and patented a brand new concept for the assembly of the mast, fuselage and wings because this is a critical aspect of the kitefoil. It drives the reliability and ease of use for assembling and taking the foil apart for transportation, as much as the repeatability of the trim between the front and rear wings.

The main benefit of the system is the one and only screw that maintains all the parts together: mast, front wing and fuselage.This screw is placed longitudinally and is therefore only stressed in tension instead of shear or bending. The whole foil can be tightened up with everything working in a sound mechanical way.

To gain some precision, robustness and packed-up volume, the screw is combined with a squared, conical assembling system, which has been proven as the best mechanical setup to lock any motion or degree of freedom between the parts, while also contributing greatly to tensional resistance.

Using a specific aluminum extruded profile and a medium chord length of 11cm, its lightweight makes the foil easy to carry and move around both on shore and in the water. The performance enabled by its 1.5 cm thick, low-drag section ensures this mast will take some time to outgrow.

Equipped with the patented FAST CONNECTION DEVICE constructed from Pre-preg carbon, this mast comes with great modularity and ease of use as one single screw is all that’s needed to assemble the main parts together. Compatible with all F-ONE wings and foil parts, it is also completely watertight and corrosion free. This mast is recommended with the Freeride 800 and Freeride 600 wings to get the most enjoyable ride.

Easily fitted to an F-ONE Foilboard thanks to the all conical KF-Box, this mast offers great potential to enjoy the thrills of foiling.

Pre-Preg

assemblage_foil_carbone_freeride_600_focus_800x600_0With Pre-preg fabrics, the carbon fiber is directly impregnated with epoxy resin by its manufacturer; this guarantees a perfect ratio between epoxy and carbon, and represents the highest quality process. The material is stored in cooled rooms and catalyzes at 120° C in a mold. The Pre-preg fibers must travel in refrigerated trucks and be stored frozen. The refined ratio between carbon fiber and epoxy resin provides the lightest weight with the best mechanical properties of carbon fiber.

Stabilizer

FREERIDE STABILIZERArea: 305cm²
Aspect Ratio: 5.8
Weight: 0.24 kg

Solid, versatile and progressive, the Freeride stabilizer can be combined with any of the freeride or carving front wings and fits a very large range of practices.

Equipped with generous winglets, the stabilizer blade offers fantastic control with enough surface area to provide full confidence in all situations. Built in Carbon Composite and designed to be securely mounted on F-ONE fuselages, its profile and angle of incidence were tuned to achieve a very intuitive balance which will help you get your foiling maneuvers in more easily.

Fuselage

FUSELAGE 42CMLength: 42cm
Weight: 0.47 kg

Built out of Pre-preg carbon fibers around a steel core, the F-ONE fuselages are designed to be extremely stiff and provide perfect control with a low drag sectional area.

With a full stainless steel tail, the assembly with the stabilizer is solid and very reliable. The tail matches the angle of incidence required onto the stabilizer to guarantee an intuitive balance whatever the wing combo selected.  The 42cm fuselage provides better directional and pitch stability which helps a lot at lower and medium flying speeds. Recommended with Freeride 800, 600 wings.

Forged Carbon

assemblage_foil_carbone_freeride_600_focus_800x600_0This technology takes advantage of the same principles as standard Pre-preg but uses a different type of fiber which is better suited to mold small parts with complex shapes. It allows us to build accurately smaller sized parts that are very reliable.

The advantages of these two technologies are their high end mechanical properties, but also their fast production cycle which allows us to work with a faster and more rational construction process.(1h to cure a pre-preg mast and about 10 minutes for a Forged Carbon part). This is crucial for delivering a high quality product.

KF Box

Focus_KF_Box_565_2F-ONE kitefoils are equipped with the fully conical KF-BOX. Its shape makes it easy to connect and fits well with the thickness of the kite boards due to its moderate height. The KF-BOX offers a perfect, tight support.

Masts that are higher than one meter received a DEEP KFBOX able to cope with the added stresses.
