At A Glance

F-ONE have long had an impressive and versatile board range, and the 2019 offering is the best yet with an impressive 28 boards on offer. Their women’s range holds 3 boards for different levels of twin tip rider, and we were excited to get the first of these, the Trax HRD Lite Tech Girl, on test.

This board has been designed for the all-round kitesurfer who needs something, which will keep up with her demands no matter the conditions or discipline chosen for the day. The Trax Lite Tech has the attributes and technology to cope with this.

Firstly the Trax series of boards has been designed with all-around usability in mind. HRD is a term used to describe F-Ones construction process which includes 3D shaped rails, and finally, the Lite Tech side of the board refers to the aesthetic gains acquired by using a TPU element to allow light to pass through the board resulting in the really rather special look.

Sizes: 135 x 39cm, 136 x 40.5cm

“A fantastic board designed with bags of performance and looks to match.”

On The Water

We first used this board in those crazy overpowered conditions, which seem like a good idea at the time but in fact are just a bit silly. Even so, we were able to hold down enormous amounts of power and be in complete control at all times without feeling like we had too much speed while the board offered plenty of confidence.

In more sensible conditions we found the board to be not only incredibly comfortable underfoot, but also ride with some good controllable speed both up and crosswind.
The flexy tips of the board work really well for soaking up any chop that comes your way, and also for giving you that extra spring off the water as you head into any aerial moves.

The tapered tips of the board also allow for some really fun rail-to-rail transfers, and in the waves provided some great carving spray. Slightly larger fins than some freestyle boards added to the grip, which aided the enjoyment here.

We found the board worked really well for all styles of kiting, and the comfort rating at all times was incredible. The straps really lock your feet into place, and even unhooked we had no sketchy board off moments as it stayed with us the whole time. For those unhooked riders, the Trax HRD Lite Tech Girl provided fantastic pop and soaked up the landings with ease every time.

Overall

We really enjoyed the Trax HRD Lite Tech Girl and would thoroughly recommend to anyone who needs an all round board for a range of conditions. Incredibly comfortable, it provides performance in chop and flat water, as well as for hooked and unhooked freestyle. This is a board which you would be hard-pressed to grow out of.
