Magnet Carbon – Transform Your Ride
Jump higher and land immediately all the strapless tricks you have been training on for months! With its surreal lightweight and low profile, the board sticks to your feet, and you will keep naturally the board way longer during the tricks.
The reduced thickness brings improved control and an innovative flex to provide a lot more comfort and precision while riding and when landing, even in the harshest conditions. It’s a new feel in terms of control, with more direct feedback. Its straight rocker line combined with the parallel outline offers the speed and stability you need to boost huge aerial tricks.
Combining the deep channels, precisely carved on the bottom of the board, together with the right amount of flex, makes the landings a lot more controlled and smoother.
The MAGNET CARBON is built using the innovative SLIMTECH CARBON Custom process, making it both light and incredibly robust, probably the two most important aspects of a strapless freestyle board. The pad covers enough area of the board, so you get the extra grip you need in all situations, and a grab rail has been recessed into the deck so you can grab the board with ease during those tic-tacs. Transform your ride with the MAGNET CARBON, the most innovative strapless board on the market.
F-ONE brings a revolution to the strapless freestyle world: the slim tech carbon custom.
- 2.3 KG! The lightest kite strapless board ever built

MITU Pro Flex
The MITU PRO FLEX is available in 5 sizes from 5’2 to 5’10. It makes the most of its high-tech HD Foam Flex construction to offer the fantastic Mitu shape that mimics the sensation of a traditional surfboard with incredible durability for unrivalled comfort and flow on the water.
With the compact outline, the single deep concave remains the DNA of the MITU PRO MODEL; it is this unique shape that helps the board get on the plane early, accelerate in an instant and give directional stability.
Comfort has been improved by a double concave in the front section making your ride smoother than ever. Travelling along the bottom of the board, the concave fades progressively towards the back where an increased kick in the tail rocker helps make the turns tight and effortless.
Combined with thin rails towards the rear, the fishtail offers the best combination between planing, stability, turning and pop.
This unique mix of planing, stability and manoeuvrability is what makes the MITU PRO MODELS so unique and versatile.
The largest sizes have a bit more emphasis on the planing ability and general stability, while the smaller sizes have more focus on manoeuvrability. All share the same shape features with their specific outline to make the most of the wave’s energy.
The MITU PRO FLEX uses the HD foam flex construction, where the ability of the board to flex has been emphasised, to provide outstanding comfort and a fantastic feeling on the wave. Built with HD foam of various densities, together with fibreglass and epoxy resin, this construction also features some deck stringers for more durability.
The shock absorbers are a unique feature on the market and provide the utmost level of comfort when combined with the full pad. The MITU PRO FLEX has some deck inserts built-in so that they can be equipped with foot straps. It comes with a thruster fin setup and a set of F-ONE FLOW RTM fins.
More than an icon or a best-seller, the MITU PRO MODEL is first and foremost Mitu MONTEIRO’s board, and this can mean only one thing: the board just as the man behind it remains firmly at the top of its game year after year.
- 100% dedicated to strapless riding
- Excellent in waves AND for freestyle
- Intuitive and playful in ALL conditions
- Available for everyone! (3 construction standards x 5 sizes = 15 boards to choose from!)

TRAX HRD Lite Tech – Glacier and Papaya
The TRAX has a long heritage and is one of the most popular twin tips on the market. It is the ultimate freeride and freestyle board with a unique feeling on the water, offering both speed and comfort. The HRD Rail plays a significant role in the way the board performs, and it sets it apart from everything else out there.
HRD is a unique construction process that allows for the rails of the board to be shaped in 3D. There are three sections to the rail as it runs the length of the board. In the middle of the board, the rail is thin for grip and improved upwind ability, under the feet the rail is inverted and curved like a surfboard rail allowing the board to track through chop and improving its carving ability smoothly. As the rail reaches the tips, it thins out again, allowing superior grip and bite to give excellent pop.
The Lite Tech is exclusive to F-ONE. Patented by Rossignol Snowboards, it integrates a TPU element into the board, allowing light to pass right through. It doesn’t offer any performance advantages, but it does look fantastic, and it will help you stand out from the crowd on the water. Available in two graphic versions (men/women), the Lite Tech also looks incredible in photographs, we can’t guarantee extra Instagram likes, but it’s bound to help!
The construction mixes unidirectional and bi-axial fibres at 45° to achieve the best balance in bending and torsion. This results in a board which feels easy to ride at full potential with great comfort.
On the water the TRAX HRD Lite Tech offers a smooth, forgiving ride, the HRD rail eliminates spray and feels very comfortable regardless of the water conditions. The flex has been tuned to provide the optimum pop off the water, and the extra flex in the tips helps to launch you into the air when it comes to landings, the wide outline and channelled base combine to smooth things out and allow you to retain control at all times.
The board is so popular because it works for such a wide variety of riders; from experts in freestyle to beginners and everyone in between the TRAX is an excellent choice. Combining early planing, upwind ability and control, there is plenty of performance at your disposal when you need it. From flatwater to harsh chop the TRAX can handle it, you’ll get a ride like no other.

The TRAX is all about having fun on the water. This board is based on the legendary TRAX heritage and implements some of the latest thinking developed on the WTF?! to offer a unique blend of comfort, performance and ease of use.
The overall rocker line is moderate to ensure the board offers early planning and keeps the fantastic glide, which is the true signature of the TRAX. The rocker line is split into three distinct stages with a flatter section in the centre, which is crucial to achieving an excellent upwind angle and great tracking on the water. The transition between the middle section and the tips was inspired by the WTF?! rocker to offer incredible pop.
The bottom shape features a deep double concave and some tip channels. Both are quite efficient at providing first-class grip and control to the board, but the double concave is the main driver behind the overall comfort of the board and its stability at all times.
The rails are inspired by our HRD technology, with taller sections around the feet for better lift and balance, they were kept thin everywhere else to offer plenty of grip.
The deck shape is stripped down for more simplicity and better contact between the bindings and the board. The 3D work in the middle section, another heritage of the TRAX, helps the centre of the board track in a straight line with a solid feel for more accuracy and control when riding.
On the water, the board impresses by how smooth it is to ride. Everything feels natural and intuitive. A perfect blend of glide, solid pop and smooth landings characterise this well-balanced shape.
The TRAX is available in two sizes, which should fit a wide range of users. The latest freestyle developments inspire the proportions of the shape while the dimensions are kept more manageable.
The TRAX takes all the shape features of the standard TRAX and implements them in a format dedicated and tailored for the smaller sizes. Smaller and thinner, this version of the TRAX comes in 132x37cm and 133x38cm.
Produced from a specific mould, this particular TRAX is lighter and more flexible.
All versions come equipped with our UNIBox 50m fins, which offer better speed and improved glide thanks to their thinner profile.
