The quick release is provided with rigid elastics and the upper part has been shortened by one centimeter to achieve a longer depower line.
The F-ONE safety release can be easily set-up on BANDITS 3 / 4 / 5 / 6 / 7/ 8 / 9 / 10 / 11 / 12, BANDIT 2020 and BANDIT STRUST 2013 / 2014 / 2015, 2016 VOLT 1 & 2 and REVOLT 3.
AFNOR NORM: NF S 52-503
Freestyle Quick release
Designed to work effectively even in the most critical situations, it can be triggered under load but also when the lines are slack.
In some cases, the bar can get stuck in lower position against the release system during an emergency situation. The F-ONE safety release has a stopper at the top to allow enough room to activate the system in this critical situation. This stopper also makes sure your hands stay away from the bar when it’s turned at the maximum.
Easy to use, it can be triggered similarly by lefthanders or right-handers.
Designed with an ergonomic shape, the release handle is easy to grab to trigger the system. A flange was added to the top of the handle to improve the grip. This flange was made of soft material for the best comfort of use.
The F-ONE safety release can be easily set-up with no specific tool required. It can be adapted onto the following kites: BANDITS 3/4/5/6/7/8/9/10/11/12, BANDIT 2020 and BANDIT-S, TRUST 2013/2014/2015/2016, VOLT 1 & 2 and REVOLT 3.
From the inception the F-ONE safety release has been designed to withstand and work effectively under extreme loads, much higher than normally encountered while riding.
It was designed with high resistance materials including stainless steel reinforcements and fully optimized to make it completely reliable, ready to withstand the wear and tear of an extensive use.
The elastics were tested in extreme conditions and on more than 1000 release cycles in the lab. Moreover, the F-ONE safety release system has proven it is able to hold loads up to 700 kg*.
Its push-away system enables to trigger the release with minimal force even under the highest loads. A reduced force of less than 5 kg is required to trigger the system when loaded at 200 kg*, while under the extreme load of 400 kg, it is still possible to release with a force of 10.21 kg*.
