F- One Bandit no quality

Postby Estonia » Sat Jun 28, 2014 9:26 pm

Should you buy the F-One Bandit kite will not get any warranty product.
Kite begins to stretch the seams. Seam does not stretch itself to the cylinder material stretches.The material used is weak.
Kite salesman says that the kite is over-inflated, and are not guarantees.
My kite broke down 2013 last year. It is now the year 2014. has still not been done in a formal response. As a factory, I did not get a response. I invite you to help to provide the answer in this forum. We write on their gauthier@f-onekites.com

What year is that? Have to pump f ones hard if you want them to fly their best. It says 10 PSI recommended in their manuals and that is really hard...

I had my bar break in half from corrosion but my country distributor gave me a new one.

My f one kites have lasted really well. Still flying my B4 2011 and it has had many hours...

that kite didn't do that all on its own. Most likely you crashed the shit out of it, repeatedly. Kites are not made out of steel. If you do tricks and crash the hell out of your kite, expect to replace them early.

Or go on a forum and whine about it like a little bitch.

Big difference between use and abuse!

F-One kites are built as well or better than anything out there. Take that info from a warranty and repair specialist!

Well I babied :baby: my Bandit 3's and 4's and they ripped on me after a pussycrash.

Saw some very worn bars from other people, lots of peeling boards, worn out bottoms and fins...

To my opinion F-One is one of the companies with the least quality of them all. It's nice their warranty service is good :thumb:

The kites do fly nice and the boards do ride nice though.
