After establishing the current (un)comparability in jump heights, we promised to get back on some more details. In this post a detailed insight in the relation of the air time and g force measuring at both devices. This shows we have to worry even a bit more and hope that the promised firmware update(s) of the Xensr quickly solves the issues previously mentioned including the inadequate air time registration.
There is no relation between the air time registrations between the WOO sports and the Xensr.

Massive, deep multiple channels, surprising big rocker, extremely wide: made to shred some kickers and sliders. This, in combination with the stylish wooden colours of the Livewire with the leather looking Reefer boots, got us exited to test it.

A brilliant and visionary move back in 2008, when F-one decided to reduce its kite range back -more or less- to only one type of kite; The Bandit. It is safe to say the Bandit made a lot of kiters really happy, no matter if they where doing freeriding, freestyle or even waveriding. An impressive achievement. Whatever we will have to say about the Bandit everybody, including us, will be happy riding a Bandit. But is the ninth version still revolutionary? We could test five different sizes of the 2016 version for over one month to answer that, and many more, question.
We see the F-one Bandit as one of the inventors of the -more and more popular- all in one kite. A kite that can be used without almost any compromise for freeride, freestyle and wave riding. Where most brands have at least three or more different lines of kites (North for example even has seven different types of kites), F-one believes in focus on more or less just one; the Bandit (next to the Trust and the Diablo, a race kite). Marketing wise this is kind of tricky. A marketing theory is that if you have less options the chance you will buy at this company decreases.
