2021 marks our second year splitting the BANDIT into two distinct lines to allow for more versatility, depending on your riding style. While key features remain consistent, we are proud to have once again further developed through troubled times the BANDIT to offer you the quality gear you deserve on the water.

The BANDIT 2021 is extremely pleasing to fly whilst having a sporty feeling. Its behaviour is direct and reactive as well as stable, smooth and homogenous. Its power is totally controllable and the kite is not physical to handle. Whether you want to park it and ride freely for hours or send it throwing some big kiteloops, the BANDIT will deliver.

This year’s BANDIT exceeds expectations in terms of shape control. You will not be bothered by unwanted movements coming from the kite. Our new panel layout and our new trailing edge reinforcement allowed to us to get a super sleek profile. This resulted in a stability in flight never reached before, providing full confidence and unmatched performances. The work done on the skin tension in the canopy makes the balance between stability and manoeuvrability perfectly even.

Going upwind has never been so comfortable. This year again we have worked on reducing the drag, and creating positive forward momentum allowing you to stay even longer on the water.

The BANDIT 2021 is very light to fly yet has a feedback incredibly direct. The kite consistently reacts to your demand, and you always know where it sits in the window. The turning of the BANDIT is quick and precise and remains totally controllable when de-powered.

The jumping potential of this year’s model is absolutely insane. Offering explosive vertical lift the kite has plenty of float to chuck in some boards off or old school moves. Loops are fast and you will always find the line tension and pull you’re looking for. Just pull on the bar and the BANDIT 2021 will generate power, fantastic kite-loops sensations and super smooth landings with no stalling.

The kite’s conception is exceptionally technical and the result whilst riding is impressive. We have reached new levels of stability making riding comfortable and safe no matter the conditions. We managed to get a way more homogenous experience from low to high wind range with each size of the range. It crosses over to disciplines like foiling and even wave riding super well.

After spending countless hours testing and developing prototypes, we are proud to release the new and improved 2021 BANDIT. Whether you are looking to send it, free ride for hours, or explore the waves, this kite will exceed all expectations.
