Trust V.3 Freeride
Designed for FREERIDING, the TRUST V.3 is a fantastic kite easier to use and yet with better performances.
It benefits from all the work and progress achieved in terms of construction and shape with its elder sibling the BANDIT.
TECHNOFORCE™ of TEIJIN is a high density Polyester fabric with a tear stopping structure using thin and high tension yarn.
Kites with extended de-power ranges sustain more pressure across the canopy as they experience an increased frequency of use over a wider wind range.
Consequently F-ONE has developed a completely new structure for the Bandit, offering optimized durability with no additional weight gain.
The FORCE FRAME is a solid Dacron structure consisting of the leading edge, the trailing edge and the struts.
This high strength skeleton structure is then covered with lightweight Spy material in the least vulnerable areas.
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.
The EVO De-power concept is a simple 4 line system with a 4m long Life Line featuring a V shaped bridle with a pulley system on each of the front lines.
This simple system offers complete safety and allows for increased de-power by finely tuning the angle of attack of the kite.
When the quick release is activated the EVO system becomes the Life Line and the kite lands safely on its back with immediate and total power kill.
EVO De-power offers complete control with direct and responsive steering in all riding conditions.
Sheeting the bar in and out is very progressive even with the kite fully de-powered.
Unhooked the kite remains light and very predictable, inspiring confidence so you can progress faster.
DELTA C-SHAPE technology design offers unmatched stability and steering response when fully de-powered, with the possibility of connecting the front lines higher on the leading edge of the kite.
DELTA C-SHAPE is a patented design used by F-ONE on all kites for the past 11 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.
With an incredible speed control, the TRUST will make it easier for the riders to carve and dampen the waves and chop. Its exceptional upwind capabilities with flawless stability at 12 o’clock make it the perfect partner.
The construction features a new fabric, the well known TECHNOFORCE™ double rip stop from TEIJIN. With superior resistance, robustness and more stability, this new fabric enables an unprecedented control of the canopy profiles.
The TRUST V.3. also benefits from new reinforcements and a more balanced distribution of the tensions across the canopy fabric. One Pump valves have been further optimized.
Thanks to the new fabric, it was possible to improve significantly the kite profiles with some neat gains in performances and ease of use.
Remaining incredibly intuitive and stable to steer, with excellent power control and speed, the kite still demonstrates the best relaunch capacities. The TRUST V.3. makes it easier to ride underpowered without stalling the kite with power constantly available and easy to regulate. In the high range, the TRUST doesn’t pull laterally and can be eased progressively to head higher into the wind in complete comfort and making upwind riding as easy as it can get.
The bar feeling is more pressed for a more expressive feedback of information which will help the less experienced riders.
The TRUST is designed to fly with complete control any kind of wind conditions. Its behavior is reassuring and will give you full confidence to improve and push your level.
Its Delta C-Shape geometry, created and developed by F-ONE, remains the most acclaimed recent evolution to enable an easy relaunch.
The AUTO RELAUNCH system will let the TRUST relaunch easily without requiring any complex procedure and will let you ride with full peace of mind. Diagonal webbings are located at the tip of the struts for more safety to avoid catching the lines. The kite can be neutralized easily when triggering the safety release as it will simply land on its back with no traction force thanks to the EVO bridle setup.
The whole range has been redefined so as to offer a very consistent set of kites which all share the same qualities and feeling. There is no adaptation required from one size to another one.
The TRUST V.3 is therefore a really high performing kite while remaining very accessible and easy to ride. With its very smooth and predictable behavior, it offers a uniquely intuitive steering. This kite will be the perfect ally to make the most of your sessions and enjoy some amazing sensations.
