2013 F-One Trust Kite Review

The 2013 F-One Trust is a new freeride-oriented kite from F-One. At first glace it is very similar to the 2012 F-One Volt 2, but it has been updated and also uses a new control bar.

For our second strutless kite review (after the BRM Cloud) we received a Naish Trip. One unique aspect of this kite is that it is only available in one size – 10m.

TKB REVIEW: 2013 Boardriding Maui Cloud Strutless Kite

The Cloud is the first strutless kite on the market and is quite different compared to anything we've tested before. The Cloud comes in a simple stuff sack and is amazingly light and small when packed compared to traditional strutted kites.
