Mutiny - F-Series 12m 2011
The F-Series is for the progressive rider that wants a high-jumping, floaty, free-ride, performance kite with a large predictable depower range, simple and effective safety system, effortless relaunch and bomb-proof construction. With a crisp and direct bar feel, easy edging control and smooth, clean aerodynamics the F-Series offers easy, predictable and consistent riding whether you’re just starting out or longing to jump into orbit and float around with the birds. Designed to save you time, get you riding longer and enjoying every minute, the F-Series puts the joy back into kitesurfing.
£900 Kite Only (currently £550)
£1200 Complete with Mutiny Control Bar (currently £750)
Every part of the F-Series, including our time saving Quick PumpTM
system and Clean Kite Concept (CKC™), has been designed specifically to
make getting on the water and enjoying yourself quicker, safer and
easier than ever, whatever your ability. Employing a swept leading edge,
flattened front arc and slightly flared tips you get enormous boost and
float, a large power range and easy relaunch combined with a light and
fast turning, high-performance kite.
The F-Series offers easy, problem-free riding and faster progression for any rider, whatever your ability. With staggering performance and a vast power range from its fast, powerful profile, hybrid bridle system and swept planform, the F-Series gives you a crisp, comfortable bar feel, predictable turn speed and simple relaunch with the confidence to tackle an extremely large range of conditions and styles. Ease yourself slowly into high performance kitesurfing or explore the dizzy heights that max power has to offer.
Enormous Jumps and Massive Hangs:
This kite boosts! When you send the F-Series, the large power variation, fast profile and high aspect ratio centre all work together to launch you into huge effortless jumps just by pulling in the bar. With refined aerodynamics, carefully adjusted canopy shaping and trailing edge stiffeners we’ve minimised the drag and produced a kite with lightning acceleration, a crisp feedback and unrivalled hang-time. You’ll be surprised how high you go, how long you stay up and how easy it all was.
Clean Kite Concept:
The Mutiny Clean Kite Concept ensures the smoothest aerodynamics possible. The new Quick Pump system has unique, flush-fitting valves and tubes which neatly follow the strut intersections. Our trailing edge flow stabilisers, stream-lined strut ends, wrinkle-free, rugged exoskeleton and smoother glued overlap seams minimize the drag even more. There is nothing left exposed to interrupt the air flow or catch your lines when crashing your kite. With the direct rear line connection, optimised tow point positions and our load distributed panels you’ll find the F-Series to be crisp and smooth through the sky, have direct, responsive handling and a light bar pressure that doesn’t cause fatigue.
The F-Series is a high performance kite with a reliable safety system, safe line connectors and a bomb proof design allowing progression without the worry of injury or kite damage. Although the F-Series has a huge depower range, your Quick Release will stop it pulling completely and land it gently. With an easy relaunch and no tangles thanks to our CKC™ you can learn new moves with confidence. Our super tough, light weight, Technoforce canopy distributes the forces from our double prestretched, extra strong flying lines perfectly across the sail area and with our Exo-Tech™ exoskeleton reinforcing the load bearing areas of your kite you’ll have a safe, easy-to-use, direct kite that lasts
The F-Series includes all of Mutiny’s unique, custom features and
production techniques developed, from scratch, to satisfy our Clean Kite
Concept, time saving, safe and bomb-proof design philosophies while
offering accessible performance and enormous jump capability. The Quick
PumpTM system and safe connectors speed up safe rigging. New seam
techniques, innovative valve and panel designs and trailing edge
improvements limit airflow disruption over the kite, giving crisp
feedback, huge boost and positive turning. Coupled with light weight,
durable materials, a reinforced exoskeleton and the option of 4 or 5
lines, you’ve got progressive free-ride performance that lasts.
4/5 Line Compatible:
The F-Series offers you, the rider, the choice of 4 or 5 lines. With a simple alteration you can choose the style with which you feel most comfortable. 4 lines offer get great depower, easy relaunch and a huge wind range – ideal for wave riding and free riding. With 5 lines you get the benefit of a fast acting safety bridle – perfect for nervous beginners. For those more adventurous riders, the 5 Line format also offers an excellent unhooked experience, consistent pull, great pop and smooth power delivery ideal for the latest new school tricks.
Mutiny uses Technoforce T9 polyester ripstop for every kite canopy from one of the world’s most sophisticated fabric suppliers, Tejin. Those Japanese perfectionists have exacting standards when it comes to ripstop and this lightweight material is very strong, waterproof and comes with UV-protective coatings on both sides. So you can be confident of optimum kite performance, session after session.
Your F-Series quickly connects to your Mutiny Bar using our Safe Connectors which, with their colour-coded knots and loops, makes it almost impossible to make an error when setting up your kite.
Trailing Edge Flow Stabilisers:
With our determination for clean airflow comes two types of trailing edge flow stabiliser, designed to reduce the drag in the canopy and drive clean airflow from the back of the kite. Mylar stiffening elements and stiff 4mm battens are used to eliminate high frequency vibrations and flutter in the canopy completely. This greatly improves the light wind performance of the F-Series and brings us closer to our goal of a silent kite.
Self Rescue Handles:
When all else fails, the F-Series includes simple and effective self-rescue handles which in an emergency allow the rider to perform a self pack-down and rescue with a well placed handle.
Super Tough LE Seam:
Through rigorous, destructive testing and by concentrating our efforts on the weakest areas of kites, our solution reinforces the tight folds of the LE closure without adding excessive weight. In keeping with the F-Series’ bomb-proof construction and CKC™, the LE Seam will prolong the life of your kite and allow smoother air flow around the tube improving overall performance and durability. It takes us a little longer to make but will take you a lot longer to break.
Load Distributed Panels:
We have analysed the load distribution across our canopies, redesigned the panel shapes and ensured their accurate positioning to direct the forces intelligently across the kite. This allows the most efficient use of the available power, to reduce the wear and stop the kite from mis-shaping during flight giving you a long- lasting, responsive feeling and direct connection to your kite.
Glued Overlap Seam:
As part of Mutiny’s CKC™ we have changed our stitching methods to a glued overlap seam which produces a kite with a smooth, wrinkle-free canopy, minimizing airflow disruption over the profile and optimizing its performance. By spending longer aligning the panels, your F-Series will fly smoother and respond more crisply to all of your inputs without delay or unexpected hiccups.
