F-One Breeze V3
As low as £999.00
The F-One Breeze V3 is for anyone who wants a light weight set up that offers incredible handling with great low-end performance. Now with a range of sizes going from 7m to 17m, it is the perfect kite for light wind freeriding and foiling in any conditions. Thanks to its stability and light weight, the Breeze can show off interesting performance in light wind wave riding too.
F-One's design and test team have worked tirelessly to bring significant improvements to the Breeze V2. You’ll discover the new kite has a more stable canopy when depowered and the overall range of the kite has been widened.
Across the range of sizes, the handling has been finely tuned; the larger sizes are even more responsive, making them perfect for manoeuvres. The smaller sizes are optimised to handle stronger winds with total speed control and great stability while foiling.
In the air, the Breeze V3 is so intuitive to fly you can forget about the kite and concentrate on the riding. This unique characteristic makes it perfect for beginners and advanced riders alike.
The kite has also been designed to work with a low front V on the bar to enable to untangle lines after those inevitable kite crashes.
The Breeze V3 is available right now; if you want a lightweight, one-strut kite that can put a smile on your face in 8knots, the decision is easy, let’s get breezy!
When riding, the kite reaches its maximum speed quite early on and then stops accelerating. This is a real bonus in terms of comfort when one knows the high degree of focus required to control a foil or you are taking your first steps into kiteboarding.
It also offers an impressive feeling of control and feels very progressive leading to more confidence when riding. It’s manoeuverability lets you place this kite perfectly during manoeuvres making progress much easier and faster and the bar pressure has been increased which lets you take support from and achieve better balance from the kite.
Re-launch is made super easy thanks to its light weight and backward re-launch ability, to get out of sometimes tricky situations in light winds.
- Riding in less than 8 knots of wind
- Powerful enough to enable early planing
- Stable to prevent it falling from the sky in light winds and let you focus on your riding
- Able to depower and keep control - crucial for foil riding
- Designed with good control of your speed and acceleration
- Easy to re-launch even in light winds

Back Line Turning:
SHEETED IN The back line is released and the forces go through the front connector. The bar pressure increases and the maneuvrability is less direct. It offers a very progressive bar with a feeling of a sheeted out back connector while we sheet in, therefore the pressure increases progressively.
SHEETED OUT The kite tilts and the back line stiffens. The tensions move to the trailing edge which has several effects: - less flapping - better start - maneuvrability with less pressure.
Stronger assembly of the panels: they are now glued and sewn together to make the canopy more rip resistant.
Streamlined Leading Edge End Tips:
The leading edge tips benefit from a reduced diameter, they are streamlined to lower the drag and equipped with a strap to avoid bridle tangling
The internal outline of the trailing edge panels is no more linear but with a series of arches.
In the centre, DACRON has been replaced by a double layer of canopy fabric which improves spreading the tensions, maintaining the profile and brings new gains in stability and performance.
Vertical Strut Cut:
The kite's struts are designed with a vertical cut in order to optimize the strength / diameter ratio.
Pulley structure is extremely resistant.
Bridle is integrated in the lower part of the pulley, working in its axis and not sideways.
Pulleys can be removed independently from the bridle, you can change the bridle and keep the pulley or vice versa.
Most seams on the leading edge are protected with an abrasion-resistant Kevlar® fabric to prevent the seams from deteriorating when the kite's profile is subjected to aggressive ground friction
One-Pump Collar Valve:
Easier to remove and put back.
Convenient for bladder replacement.
TECHNOFORCE™ of TEIJIN is a high density Polyester fabric with a tear stopping structure using thin and high tension yarn.
F-One Linx Control Bar:
The F-One Linx bar takes all the best bits of the Monolith Bar and added some great features to create the ultimate connection to your kite.
The Linx bar is available in two sizes, 52-45 and 45-38cm; this allows you to choose the perfect size bar for your quiver. The new integrated floats on the rear line not only offer a cleaner look; they also house the mechanism to adjust the size of your bar too.
A new One Line Flag Out safety system features this year and is now the standard for all F-ONE kites. There’s a high-quality corrosion proof Inox steel hub on the front lines that allows one line to slide. The first 6m of the front lines are larger in diameter for durability, and there is a stopper to prevent the bar from travelling too far away from you when the safety is engaged.
F-One have also added a manual swivel on top of the chicken loop this year; it uses a high-quality ball bearing and is easy to rotate even when powered. This allows you to untwist your front lines after performing rotational tricks and is a feature every rider is going to fall in love with!
The Lifeline safety connection has an added swivel, so there is no danger of twists affecting the release of the kite, and the same goes for the leash too. The safety can be set up in suicide mode for freestyle riders while still retaining full functionality when the chicken loop is released as the loop can slide through the Lifeline safety connection with ease.
There’s a new Inox steel ring on the front lines; riders can choose to run the front lines through this ring to give the kite a short V on the front lines. Or you can run the lines outside of this ring to have a full front V. Kites like the Furtive perform better with the full front V, while the Breeze flies better with the short V. This feature of the bar means you only need one kite bar regardless of your quiver of kites.
F-One have retained the ability to tune the rear lines, so if a line does stretch, you can still tune the bar so all the lines are equal and the kite will still fly properly.
The LINX bar features a smaller diameter to make it comfier in your hands and reduce fatigue and, of course, we have new fresh colours!
