Adrenaline junkies, the BULLIT V.2 will give you the fix you need. A megaloop machine, this kite was designed for strong wings addicts and Big Air specialists. Now with five struts, the BULLIT V.2 is the weapon you need to take you up off natural kickers and commit to huge overpowered airs in full confidence.
The BULLIT V.2 will offer the confidence you need for the most committed loops. It rotates lower in the window and pulls you horizontally, bringing thrilling sensations. It turns and rises incredibly fast to catch you again in time and to provide a soft landing.
The ultra-precise and fairly firm bar feel, without being too heavy or hard, is reassuring during all your maneuvers. The kite reacts quickly and without downtime thanks to the direct and constant steering response, and you feel confident and ready to load your kite to take off.
The BULLIT V.2 now has five struts, leading to an impressive stability and power handling. We also increased the kite’s aspect ratio to obtain more span and less width for a better control of the profile. The control of deformations is total, especially when overpowered.
The R&D team worked intensively on Sail Engineering to make the entire profile amazingly sleek and implemented original staggered seams on the trailing edge. The seam’s tension line is thus broken, which means the entire profile of the canopy is leveled when the kite is fully powered. We kept the fabric’s orientation towards tension as well.
On the back of the profile, we have reduced the overtensions thanks to the staggered seams, where we used our new TECHNOFORCE 66g. It is stronger and more resistant on elongation to offer a better control for higher winds.
This all leads to more efficiency. Overall, this perfectly even canopy profile brings a greater sense of stability without feeling disturbances or the bar moving and leads to incredible performances in the high end.
The struts’ reinforcements are now super sleek as well thanks to the Kevlar strip on the top. This improves the kite’s steering and maneuverability, reduces the aerodynamic disturbances, and decreases the overall weight of the kite once wet.
Our original 5 points connections bridle and two pulleys help keep the arc stable even in overpowered conditions.
The new, CNC-shaped, anodized aluminum low friction “pulleys” are super lightweight and increase the kite’s reactivity. They also raise the bridle’s resistance to abrasion and its overall durability.
The BULLIT V.2 is simply the perfect kite that will make you send it with sizes adapted to all sorts of loops and huge airs. We have two additions this year with the 6m², 7m², and continue to offer the 8m² and 9m².
Commitment is the BULLIT V.2’s key word. It offers a new standard for those who want to push their limits in Big Air.
DELTA C-SHAPE is a patented design used by F-ONE on all kites for the past 15 years.
This shape was the result of a design research towards maximum optimization of the aerodynamic performances of the kite and of its depower. It gives the possibility to fit more canopy area in the middle sections to create more projected area while the C Shape makes sure the kite remains responsive and fluid.
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.
Our fast inflation & deflation valve.
TECHNOFORCE™ of TEIJIN is a high density Polyester fabric with a tear stopping structure using thin and high tension yarn.
The R&D team worked intensively on making the entire profile amazingly sleek and implemented original staggered seams on the trailing edge. The seam’s tension line is thus broken, which means the entire profile of the canopy is leveled when the kite is fully powered, and we kept the fabric’s orientation towards tension as well. This all leads to a better-controlled and even deformation of the profile, and thus more efficiency and sharper performances. Overall, this perfectly uniform canopy profile brings an even greater sense of stability without feeling disturbances or the bar moving.
How to adjust the settings?
SHEETED IN The back line is released and the forces go through the front connector. The bar pressure increases and the maneuvrability is less direct. It offers a very progressive bar with a feeling of a sheeted out back connector while we sheet in, therefore the pressure increases progressively.
SHEETED OUT The kite tilts and the back line stiffens. The tensions move to the trailing edge which has several effects: - less flapping - better start - maneuvrability with less pressure.
HIGH TENSION TUNING When the kite is sheeted out with the upper knot tuning (1): -kite’s maneuvrability increases -bar pressure reduces
LOW TENSION TUNING When the kite is sheeted in with the lower knot tuning (2): - kite’s maneuvrability reduces - bar pressure increases
Stronger assembly of the panels: they are now glued and sewn together to make the canopy more rip resistant.
The leading edge tips benefit from a reduced diameter, they are streamlined to lower the drag and equipped with a strap to avoid bridle tangling
The kite's struts are designed with a vertical cut in order to optimize the strength / diameter ratio.
Most seams on the leading edge are protected with an abrasion-resistant Kevlar® fabric to prevent the seams from deteriorating when the kite's profile is subjected to aggressive ground friction
Easier to remove and put back.
Convenient for bladder replacement.
For over two decades, we have built our kites in the most state-of-the-art cloth from Teijin’s factory in Japan.
They have developed the best technologies and quality material for our kites over the years. Teijin has worked on a few major developments with the double ripstop on the canopy cloth and durability treatments.
The kite industry was lacking choice of cloth density. We could build kites with a 52g per square meter for the canopy and about 160g for the leading edge, strut, and reinforcements. Having only two choices was not easy because on some parts the 52g was too light and the 160g too heavy.
After numerous developments and tests with Teijin, we are now using a new Dacron 130g double ripstop. As a result, we have saved weight while keeping excellent strength. The kite is more reactive and of course feels lighter; that is particularly important for the bigger sizes, especially in light wind or for the turning speed during kite loops.
