F-one Bandit 2020 - ripstop

Postby Pipekite » Fri Aug 13, 2021 2:35 am

Hi ... I'm writing to know if someone else I having problems with the 2D ripstop from f-one Bandit or other model from 2020.

I'm a client from f-one since 2008 with the Bandit 1 ... never happened this to my kites and as I was in lock down last year 2020 and I bought the kite in 31/08/2020 ... and I did not use the kite till 2021 April. The kite should be like new ...

But that is not the case ... I will post some photos

Best regards

They've been used then stored away for 8 months? Is it where they've been folded? Never seen that before..

Never happened to me .. I've been kiting since 2008 and since 2012 with F-one...
Talked to some friends they say maybe the quality of the new Teijin D2 ... but some other friends having similar problems with Teijin in the Duotones

The kite it was pack like my all other sizes... my 6m , 8m , 12m ... but only my 10m is 2020

Hope F-one can solve this as soon as possible

This is not a ripstop. This is due to lackuering- uv protection.the top layer of protection was scratched, crushed, 3-5X on the water or on the beach and you won't notice it anymore. depending on what they coat the surface with
